From San Angelo I drove up to Abilene to get our first working Livestock dog. Rocket is an 8 month old Australian Kelpie. Rocket is very fast (thus her name), but very raw. She’s a puppy, so she’s easily distracted. She is completely untrained — which is my way of adding that she’s not a shepherd yet; more like an apprentice. In any case, she’s very cute and adds lots of adventure to each day on the farm.
