but I was really hoping to get a Christmas card picture of my son with a sheep, duck, and dog 🙂 Unfortunately all of our dogs are very prey driven and were extremely keyed up by the presence of the sheep and duck! I figured Darby was my best bet – boy was I wrong! He may look slow with his little legs, but it is just a big trick. He was able to run behind and pull a little bit of wool off of Reno’s butt – poor guy! So, he was very quickly sent to his kennel for not listening and before my son dropped the duck and became Darby’s dinner. Next was Kate’s turn and it was very apparent that her and Reno were just going to stare at each other. So…we went with just a sheep and a duck and Magoo, the llama, decided to join in.
I’m not thrilled with the picture, so we will try again on the next nice day. Poor kid, he was quite the trooper. At least now I know not to try any of the dogs! I’m happy to say that no animals were hurt during this photo shoot 🙂
