    Small town, about 600 people, another 600 or so in surrounding farms. I hideously expensive small supermarket. It does have a good k-12 school.

    Hi Di Dee1

    I bet everyone in that region know each other and each other's business. Sounds not too far from Hay Plains and the road I have travelled annually for many years when I lived in Canberra and most of my family lived in Adelaide. And now that I have friends (with cattle dogs) in Mudgee - I get a bit further north as well.

    I have large numbers of cousins on both my mother and father's side of the family that are farmers - mostly sheep and cattle but some cropping. And I've also spent a lot of holidays on sheep and cattle stations in the north of South Australia. And life and death on a farm is very different to what goes on in the city.

    Most of my cousins still get very upset when their favourite / best worker dog is ill or dies. We lost one last year because it jumped in the car when nobody was looking and the door blew shut - in January. Still makes me feel ill thinking about it and it wasn't my dog. It was worse for my cousins. And all of them get the vet out (or take the animal to the vet) when there is trouble - because you can't risk the problem spreading if you don't know what it is. Any of them would shoot any dog that attacks the livestock.

    Hmm, maybe I don't want to take my dog to visit. Then again I'm fairly sure she wouldn't rip an animal to pieces based on how she plays with children, other dogs, and what happens when she corners a cat or a rabbit (it's a stand off).

    Anyway my point is - the decision making rules in rural areas are different to the city. Because of the distance and lack of help. Most people do the best they can but it's not the same as in the city where there is a good vet on every corner (nearly) and a big shopping centre with two supermarkets across the road.

    I agree with everything Di dee is saying because its exactly how it is with my grandfather.
    DH, my comment about best workers with best workers over healthiest with healthiet. I mean, they arnt going to breed really healthy great looking dogs if they arnt good workers. Working comes first

    Occy have you realised the people that agree with dogs in utes are the ones that own working dogs?

    Good thing my dog is neither dirty nor does he bark - nor have ANY of my other dogs who have all ridden INSIDE the car.

    Gee, guess I am a bogan too. The dogs are restrained on the back of a ute so they do not fall off, break bones, get lost, strangle on a long chain if they jump or fall over the side. Oh well, lil old abuser me. There are many on forums who are "do it my way or or take the highway" Who cares about narrow minded thinking? They only make themselves look ridiculous. Every forum has one.

    I reckon it would be a bit weird if my working Kelpie didnt get dirty and she'd be pretty useless if she didnt bark.

    My JRT on the other hand, he's clean, doesnt bark, doesnt work, and rides in the cab.
