Each week Jack the Kelpie and friends will be presenting the ‘Dog Blog’. A brief roundup of what’s happening around the property and more importantly what’s occurring in their lives. To kick start the project Jack would like to introduce himself.

‘G’day. I’m an eight month old black and tan Kelpie. My name’s Jack but some of the ladies prefer to call me Jacky. Being the masculine type I can get away with it. I live with my half sister Jill (painful) and as she’s younger I’ve been trying to show her the ropes but it’s a slow process. These modern families aren’t all that they’re cracked up to be. She’s got a bad habit of chasing the work vehicles when she’s not tied up and of jumping off the back of the quad bike when she should be obeying orders. Anyway I just know it’s going to be one of those weeks. Nicole tells me that I have to be patient with Jill, show her the ropes. Personally I think it’s a great pity that I can’t hang a ‘P Plater’ sign off her backside. Then everyone else would have fair warning. Until next week folks, chew slowly and remember;

‘The oxen is slow but the earth is patient.’
