On our evening ride tonight we took this little gravel lane we hadn’t been down before. It dead-ended and we turned around.

On the way back we passed a place with several dogs. This Australian shepherd came out to meet us and trotted along behind us for a bit. About that time several of the other dogs noticed us and came running out snarling.

One dog in particular was nipping right at my heels. I looked back for a second and the shepherd charged the little nipper and turned him away from us.

It was great watching that dog protect us from his friends.

I’ve always loved Australian shepherds.
