This is Jake, the Lighthouse Keeper! We got him as a pup and he is now 3 years old.
He is a Farm Collie who partners with Herb, Will and I each and every day to work with the sheep or anything else we need done.
He is smart and can follow directions and also work independently if we are not there to give instructions regarding the sheep.
At times when younger I was quite exasperated while trying to get him to do something I wanted ... he was also exasperated with me at times... he was doing what I wanted, in a more efficient way... it just took me awhile to realize it!
