Born on 7 December 1997 Cowboy is a very loyal dog. Wherever his boss is, you can find cowboy to.

For us, it took some getting used to a strong herding dog like him.

We got him when he was 6 months old. We gave him his own chores to do in the yard.

He was to bring in the chicken and ducks.

When there were baby chicks he would take them in his mouth and take them to their mama's.

He is also great in catching roosters. And holding them down without hurting them.

It is fun to see him work cows to. When challenged he'll growl and if need be nip them on the nose or heel.

He is very secure in everything he does. He once went in a trailer to bring a big bull out.

He is a great working dog as long as he can be of help.

He does not see any sense in practicing herding sheep in the pasture. Cowboy has been the sire of a few litters.

All his pups are independent workers, sometimes a little to hot for novice handlers.

ASCA : HOF WTCH JJ Beast RD RTDcsd, CD,

FCI : Beast     

In honor of my Beast

We go from one day to the next. Expecting everything will be the same tomorrow.

My dog is always at my feet, resting when I am resting,

active and ready to help, when he needs to be there.

I never had to look around for him, he was always there.

As time goes by, I hardly notice him , because I know he is there.

We achieved many things together, but in the end all that matters is he is not there anymore.

Goodbye Beast, I miss you.
