UKC: P558-413    MDR1: 

The First Week

 Lola was bred by Ann & Jim Beebe.  Her sire is a happy, mellow boy from a good working line; her dam is a very energetic dog from a long line of working dogs.   Lola has the happy demeanor of Todd and I can see the energy from Sassy already!   She's gotten to meet our sheep and is quite interested in them.   She plays well with the rest of the dogs and is quite the cuddler.  She's had the company of 2 of her sister's for the last week at our house.  It was great to see the dynamics of the three girls.  Bramble left this week for Ohio;  Maggie leaves this week for Oregon (weather permitting).

The little dog with the big bark!

 Lola has matured into a wonderful farm helper.  From a young age, it was obvious that Lola was in charge of the sheep!  She took it upon herself to enforce that the sheep are to stay back from the fence.  Her daily patrols along the fenceline have taught the sheep to stay back when we're feeding.  The ewes respond very quickly to her!  She is very tenacious- doesn't take "no" from a ewe.  She will eagerly go in to turn a ewe-even some of our most stubborn ewes.  Lola is very biddable; calling off the ewes even if she'd really rather keep moving them. 

 

 Enthusiasm is Lola's middle name!  Whether it's working with the ewes, hunting vermin, or just playing,  she gives it her all!  She doesn't do anything half heartedly.  She loves to go with me to the feed mill or store.  Every trip to get hay requires Lola's help.  While we're loading hay, she's happy to either wait patiently in the truck, or if given the opportunity, she'll start checking for mice.

Lola has several different barks that she uses.  She starts out with a "happy, yappy" puppy bark- the excited yip that let's everyone know she's around.  If a ewe requires a little more convincing, the bark deepens and gets a little more intense.  But the loudest, deepest bark is reserved for the very stubborn ewes who will not move.  She used that bark on our most stubborn Shetland ewe- who quite literally jumped 3' back!  The ewe would not move and was getting rather pushy- so you can imagine her surprise to have this little "pipsqueak" boss her around!
