Just a quick funny note. Since we live in a rural area we have all kinds of fowl, turkeys, geese, ducks, heron and such in the area. I live very close to a small rural campus where I also take classes so Sully and I are on campus often. I spend a lot of time trying to teach Sully not to try to herd my daughter's ducks and chickens and the water fowl in the pond on campus. I just found out the college hired a team of border collies to convince the ducks and geese to relocate to a pond across the way when the poop got too extreme. Sully would have gladly done it for free. I do miss the birds, especially the blue herons, but not the poop.
This is great. Now the question is, can a corgi be trained TO herd a duck? Possibly to herd her to someone else's swimming pool?
Yesterday we had a swimming lesson, in hopes that once Ruby learns how to navigate the pool and how to find her way out, she can spook the duck by plunging into the drink. Ruby is not pleased about getting in the water. But ohhh she WANTS that duck! Duck is not alarmed, because she knows that as sorely as the corgi is tempted, she's not about to jump in. I believe she suspects the corgi can't fly, too.
Ha ha....we call them flying rats around here! The Corgi's ignore our free range chickens and the geese stay away which is fine with me but they are all over the place...no shortages of wild geese here!
