If you think this dog loves me, you'd be wrong. It was watching me intently, but it was its JOB. AND it was afraid I was getting too close...
but, unfortunately for ME, not close enough. Camera in hand, I had been slowly edging my way towards a herd of goats, which I could hear in the distance, their bells ringing as they climbed the hill.
Once I was in too close for the dog's comfort, it rushed down the fence line and -- without even a bark -- forced the goats to hide in the thick brush.
Hey, nice doggy. (You ARE a nice doggy, aren't you?) All I wanted to do was take a photo!

The goats are very indifferent. On the contrary the dog is an...Argus!
That picture of the dog should win prizes...it is wonderful!
Cute dog picture! Amazing how he looks after the goats.
I hope the goats appreciate all the doggie TLC!
A good dog to do his job as protector so well!
Well, you got at least one good shot of both dog and goat! How interesting to hear how well the dog works with the goats.
I think he's a nice dog, he's got a sweet face! What a smart dog too!
Well, no matter that he was a watchdog for the goats, you captured two great images!
That seems most unusual. Lovely dog.
He sounds like a welltrained shepherd. Nice light you got on the one horn of the goat. It would make a nice shofar to blow on Yom Kippur. :) (Sorry...) Just kidding.
I hope you stop by at my CC post also in HERE. Thanks
He LOOKS friendly and cuddly. Maybe he is when hes not on duty. Lovely dog though.
He is a gorgeous dog and I'd say very well trained!
Love the composition of the first image!
Greetings from Juneau (AK) Daily Photo!
It's interesting that the dog didn't even bark. Great photos!:)
I hope you're having a great weekend.
Well he's a darned good goat herder!
Nice shots and isn't nice to know that the dog was doing his job well.
He is a beauty and he takes his job seriously.
How do you get your pictures this big on the page? Lisa
He looks like a nice doggy!
Just so cute a astory and images.
that's a smart doggy!
You may have missed the goats, but the picture of the dog is great! Those are some serious eyes.
I've been to St. Georges and found it to be a very spiritual place- . Nice animal post big pictures I love sandy
Smart dog! Perhaps if you had explained why you were there he would have been more considerate. Nice escape shot of the goat, though. BJ
Have a nice sunday...
Your photos are as always very wonderful and the animals are great! The dog is a real herder. In Dutch we call him a "herdershond".
EG, great photos! He really looks like a nice doggy! I do like living were the seasons change but as a grow older I think I'd like to give Florida a try or maybe San Diego... :)
Oh i love these photos.
Excellent photos and a good story.
Hi Ms. T.G, this is a neat series telling of you and the critters.
Thanks for reading my poem, I do that writing on my Sunday post. Yes, I did meet Mrs. Jim that evening, 37 years ago.
Sorry I missed you on Skywatch this week, you had some very pretty photos of the St. Georges area.
What a great looking dog! Great photo!
awww, cute dog portrait, even if he did chase the goats away...
That is amazing that the dog knows what to do to keep the goats safe...
What an awesome dog!!! I love herding dogs (g, maybe that's why I have three Border Collies hehehe). He's obviously VERY good at his job. Your photo of his is outstanding!
