Tucker Blue is an Australian cattle dog. He will be ten years old at the end of the month. Tucker used to go to the barn every day with Rothey until we got Beulah, our donkey, in January. Now he just looks on from the fence and gets to play with his rope when Rothey comes back from the barn. He never truly was used for herding. Tucker just thought that was his job.
Belle has always been the head honcho since she was 5 when we brought Tucker home as a puppy. Although, he tries to "herd" her sometimes! She doesn't stand much of it these days.
It is truly amazing how your dogs become a very integral part of your family! They are always happy to see you, and they love you no matter what!!
