Louie feels so-o-o proud of himself for feeding the baby calves this morning! He is sitting---tall---in the driver's seat. The baby Angus calf was born January 30th (24 hours ago) and is a little heifer calf at 78 pounds (larger than Louie). Also, here is Louie with two baby calves, and he's watching the Mamma Cows very closely, in case he gets too close to their babies! HerdingStdPoodle

Aww the babies are darling! Louie looks so cute up in the tractor. I love it when you post pictures, it always brings back such wonderful memories.

WhosMyFluffyPuppy---I have been thinking of a list of other chores that Louie helps me with---getting the newspaper every morning, summer irrigating, riding in the farm truck to pick up feed and supplies (cookies for Louie at every checkout!), checking and mending fences, replenishing salt and mineral---but the biggest help, to me, is the fact that Louie makes everything FUN! During summer irrigation, I bring a floating rubber duckie and throw it in the ditch of moving water! Louie loves it and I love to laugh! He is a wonderful companion. HerdingStdPoodle

Louie is the best looking ranch hand I've ever seen! (I always fall for the ones with dark, curly hair.) I don't suppose he's guarding those calves for their livers, right? All kidding aside, it is so impressive what a poodle--your poodle--can do! Those who think poodles are frou-frou dogs ought to be shown photos of Louie in action. He's mighty wise to keep an eye out for the Mammas, that could be an issue! I can't think of anyone whose screen name is more accurate that yours, HerdingStdPoodle!

Thank you, everyone, for your encouraging words! I really appreciate it! Chagall, I think that I have a little "frou-frou" girl in me because I LOVE the opera and plays and Poodles and Art and Literature and all the finer things in life---on a ranch budget. Perhaps that is why I have Louie. I get to be around this beautiful breed of dog all day and all night and enjoy taking in his beauty. And sometimes---late at night---I look at the past Westminster Poodle winners and dream. HerdingStdPoodle
