Natasha and Boris, the little Berkshire weaner pigs, have never seen dogs before and of course, they are terrified of them, especially Robbie. Robbie has seen pigs before, big ones and little ones, but he was never allowed to chase them. Most of the time he was very good since he too was a pup when the pigs were babies. Now he is one and half years old, and very interested in herding anything that moves, including baby pigs.
Robbie knows his down command, though does not always perform when he should. Sometimes more interesting things just get his attention and a little forceful shove helps him remember his task at hand. While in the piggy pen, he was asked to go down which he reluctantly complied with and then was given the command, 'don't touch it'. That he knows from the hours of playing with his ball. There are times when he is not allowed to touch it, even when presented to his face. His lip curls and he wants to grab it, but he does not. Today he was excellent in with the litlte pigs, even when they ran right by him and almost over him. Good boy Robbie.
