Fearless


Molly is growing up fast and is totally fearless. I can't turn my back on her or she will be off getting into some mischief.


She has no fear of the sheep - none. She runs into their pen and hops at them, then she seemingly gets distracted and turns her back on them - no fear. I have to watch her around the rams as she runs right in with them as well, and they can be dangerous.

Today the goats were out and Molly was right in mixing it up with them. Addison was trying to headbutt and ram her but Molly was too nimble. She was no help at all, all she was doing was creating havoc. The Commander had to pick her up so Sara could herd everyone back to their pen. It is amazing to watch Sara work, she gets right under the hind legs of any goat who tries to hold their ground and literally lifts their hind quarters off the ground and runs them to the barn (like a wheelbarrow race).

Sometimes fearless crosses the line to death wish, and that line is crossed when Molly tries to herd the cats!

Molly got the drop on Chai Chai here, but since that time the claws have been out!

  1. Definitely there is a line that should not to be crossed. Cats generally are pretty good at defining that line.

    1. Teresa - Molly will learn that cats have mean "No", all the time. Claws have a way of getting ones attention.

  4. Kelly - Molly is almost too spoiled. Training puppies in the dead of winter is hard, they really want to be outside.
