down. Intelligent things Border Collies - good ones can usually tell which the handler means by
the tone of voice

sheep. An advanced "look back" can be done in such a way as to indicate to the dog which
direction the new sheep are located

dog's speed or get the dog to allow the sheep to go further ahead of it

|"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the
United States of America, and to the
republic for which it stands, one nation
under God, indivisible, with liberty and
justice for all."
When I was about 3 or 4 years old I had one
of my first lessons on "respect". (a
unspoken lesson) We were behind the
rodeo stands going to our seats. They started
to said the "Pledge" and Daddy stopped in
his tracks, took his hat off and place it over
his heart (as did all the other folks still
behind the stands). We stood there in that
same spot for the National Anthem & the
prayer. Back in those days there was no one
walking around while this was going on. We
couldn't see a flag and there wasn't a bunch
of people watching you to impress. That's
just what people did back then to show
respect for flag, God & country.
