Tracking dogs, Blue and Chick travelled with us on our trek up the hill. Actually, Border Collies make very poor tracking dogs but they are great at spotting cougars, bears, and coyotes. If Chick sees a predator, she runs home. Blue, on the other hand, pursues
it with wild abandon, saving us from certain death. Both are brave when they spot a deer.
...... cattle dogs know a ruminant when they see one.:)
