"I lost one ewe and lamb near the barn over there just before the dogs arrived. But those dogs are doing a great job. In fact, I just put another $300 check in the mail for a third one."
"So the extra expense of buying dogs doesn't bother you?"
"These lambs are going to be worth about $200 a piece in a little while so the dogs only have to save a few to make the buying worthwhile."
The advocate nodded and touched the dog bowl with the tip of his cycling shoe, "What do you feed them?"
"They get dog food, but I also run a meat business so they get tails, hooves, and other animal parts too." Gazing at the road, he added, "This morning when I pulled in, someone was standing at the fence photographing the dogs and feeding them dog biscuits." He shook his head and frowned. "When these dogs don't work it's usually because they get treated like pets."
"How will you deal with that?"
"I'm going to put my hot-wire fence out soon so the dogs can't get near the road and that should solve the problem of people petting and feeding them."
