Wordless Wednesday... The Farm Dog

It's still May, so you know what that means... it's still beef month! This picture focuses on the farm dog watching over his cows on a Berks County, PA farm.  As long as I can remember, our family farm has always had a dog and sometimes two of them. The farm dog is a watch dog for the livestock, an assistant, and of course a companion for the farmer, the children, and the workers. The dog serves a purpose and usually knows it's purpose on that farm. Without that dog, we probably would get along just fine but with that dog, our days seem sunny and our farm chores go by just a little quicker. It's something special when we see the farm dog wagging it's tail and running to greet us. So to honor beef month we must also honor the farm dog for being that faithful companion, assistant, and watchdog for the farm.
