Sheep, Worrying

This is the face of a doglet who is afraid of sheep.  Having a day off from the gallery we went on a good walk (our first 4+ miler in ages).  We were on the remains of the Roman road that ran between Chichester and London for a while, and most of the time in gorgeous woodland (from which I emerged without a single found object - such discipline!).  At one point we had to go through a smallish field with LOTS of noisy sheep in, so I dutifully obeyed the Country Code and put Flo on her lead, even though she has never chased anything, ever. She hugged the field edge and pulled on her lead, then slipped her collar and tried to get out through the fence away from them.  I had to pick her up and carry her through.  How embarrassing; a dog worried by sheep.  Lawks.

  1. Those big sheep, really large wooly dogs, could easily terrify a small girl. My old cat, many many moons ago, used to stalk the sheep - wriggling right down on her belly and crawling forward. Funniest sight.
