Meet Wyatt, an Australian Shepherd. Wyatt is compelled to herd. That's what shepherds do. On the day I met Wyatt, I was painting in my studio with the door open. Wyatt had herded all the people in the house (and Roman, our Cocker Spaniel) into the back yard. As I was busy painting, Wyatt barked incessantly, insisting that I be herded with the rest of the creatures of the house. Pretty amazing how dogs live into their natural characteristics. Wyatt has blue eyes, and is very handsome.
