We all know that Ranger rides the sheepherding short bus. He didn't get the herding 'instinct' gene. Instead he got a big dose of the lesser known Doofus gene. I continue to hope that the light-bulb, however dim...may turn on...
It ain't gonna happen! Ranger's lightbulb has a factory defect.
Below is a photographic series of Ranger's last experience on sheep. Most of these pictures are straight out of the camera, only a few have been cropped and edited a bit. I am shooting everything on manual - which means I am still struggling with over exposing things and getting the right balance between my shutter speeds and aperture. *sigh*
Ranger stays where you put him - because he has no clue what you want him to do. It is sad.
At first it looks like there might be something going on between the pointy ears.
WEEE! Lets chase sheep!
What you can't hear is the WOOF!
Then he gets one separated, and focuses on it. I think they call that HUNTING, not herding.
Hey Ranger...you are supposed to be on the other side of that ewe. Not keeping her from getting back to the rest of the flock.
Ranger might make a good cutting horse in his next life.
Lets try this again...
Oh no...he is doing it again. Cutting one off and chasing it.
Now he is bumping up against her. Keeping her from getting back to the others.
I think that may be the fattest ewe I have ever seen.
What I am ashamed to admit is that he is trying to smell their butts. Yep, got a good wiff that time.
Here we go again...tries to separate one off
Dude you are totally missing the objective, but he does look cute.
Wrong way Feldman....as he crashes into their butts.
I can always look at the pictures and pretend...
Fantasize about the great sheep dog Ranger used to be...
Prior to his brain injury
The one he got from rear ending a sheep
It was horrible...we had to pop his head out. Lack of oxygen caused brain cell death.
Ahh the artificial memories can make me smile in my old age.
If you had one hundred sheep, and one of the strayed...
...too bad Ranger couldn't help you out.
