Day or Night, the Flock Is Safe | Smudge & Squeak: Working Puppies Ep. 5

October 18, 2019

All is quiet at Moss Mountain Farm. Smudge
and Squeak are hard at work becoming the ultimate defenders of the flock. But someone else is
too. Squeak wants no part of this. And while Smudge gets closer to protect the sheep, Moose
quickly come after her too. Moose was the original defender of the flock, and he’s having
a little trouble giving up his job to a couple of girls. But they’ll let him believe he’s
still charge. And for now, they’ll hunker down in this patch of shade. While darkness
falls over the farm, the sisters begin their nightly watch. As the predators begin to stir,
Smudge and Squeak make their presence known, and alert intruders to stay far away from
their flock, because these two gals are on the job. And nothing bad’s gonna happen on
their watch. After a quick drink, it’s time for Smudge and Squeak to get back to work,
because these little ladies have got a lot more ground to cover, and it’ll be dark for
awhile. Although they’re sure getting bigger, they’re still just pups. Now, because they’re
territory extends far beyond the borders of their pasture, Smudge and Squeak make sure
to patrol the area around the house as well. They practice honing their skills of observation
to become the ultimate defenders of the flock. Yeah, how bout that? And continue a vigilant
guard against threats of any kind. And they’ll be saving their energy for the next adventures
of Smudge and Squeak. That’s a nice feeling.

  1. Ok… I have a question. My question is; "Are these dogs both females?" Anatolian shepherds tend to fight if there are two female dogs, or two male dogs within the group pack seeking dominance over the other. Am I wrong? This breed reflects a temperament not like other domestic breeds. Please educate me on this. Thank you…:-)

  2. Ha, I've never heard of two females fighting, but two males? You betcha, they will fight to the death. Females though they don't usually fight, the only female "dogs" who fight are wolfdogs and that is because only one is supposed to breed, so the other is put in their place for attempting to breed with a male. If Anatolian females do fight, that could be the reason, but it would be the first time I've heard that, or seen it.
