Even Judah's beat after a night in the pasture with his new partner, Ruth. Judah has learned to pace himself in his guarding duties, only barking when he hears or smells something amiss. But Ms. Ruth is new to the game, and barked All. Night. Long. Her high-pitched voice was easily distinguished from Judah's low bark.
She's paying for all that barking this morning. I'm surprised she isn't hoarse.
But the sheep are safe, Ruth has a job, and Judah is out from under ALL the responsibility. I'll monitor this situation and make sure it all keeps working well. Ruth didn't seem to want to come out of the pasture this morning, so she'll stay on the payroll today.
She has found one new delicacy in the pasture not normally available in the house: Sheep Poop. Lovely.
