My Goose Herding Dog

Leck7 My Goose Herding Dog

I love my 9 to 5 job!  And this guy is why.

This southern gentleman has been with my company for 10 years, and I’ve been privileged to work with him for 8 of those.  He is a trained goose herding Border Collie, and he loves his work.  I love my work too because of him.

My guy is always ready for the work day.  He’s not afraid to nap in the office between activities, but the moment he hears my keys jingle from my belt loop he comes darting toward me eager to ride along with me on whatever adventures I have planned. He rides with me in golf carts to survey the property, he patiently lies in wait for me outside people’s doors while I have appointments, and is always ready for an impromptu trip to the woods or retention pond to burn off some energy and inspect the area for goose invaders.

This is the face that waits for me by the glass door every weekday morning. He is always watching for my SUV to pull in, and eager to welcome me into the office with a single, quiet, “roo,” and a helicopter tail.

Is there anything better in all the world?
