Photo: A ‘working’ dog

Dog - photo

A child and dog on a farm near Annahilt, Hillsborough, c. 1930 (LMILC.2004.469, purchased 2004)

This child took the term ‘working’ dog to a whole new level! Although the Border Collie seems content to pull the small cart, we can’t help but think it would rather have been herding sheep, which is what the breed was and continues to be famed for! What might the Collie have been transporting for this child?
