Nice work if you can get it
Sorry, this dog wasn’t asleep on the job, we were.
Blame the sheep.
We now know, thanks to a helpful commenter, this is Lamo, a 13-month-old sheep who was hit by a car and taken in by Jennifer Jones, who runs Rockfield Animal Rescue in England.
Being brought up with her three dogs, Lamo thinks he is one, too, she says.
“Lamo is so sure he is a pooch he fetches sticks and balls, wears a collar and a lead, jumps up on his hind legs — and even tries to BARK,” she wrote in posting his video to YouTube.
At least one of the dogs, meanwhile, Judy, apparently thinks Lamo is a dog bed.
Earlier today, we presented the photograph above, indicating the unidentified dog was a working dog and implying — as some other websites did — that possibly he was slacking off while on herding duty.
In truth, it was I who was slacking off — by failing to track down the source of the report.
Generally speaking, that sort of thing comes back to bite you in the butt — kind of like what happens to another one of Jones’s dogs, Poppy, at the end of the video below.
