Farm dogs: Kenny from New England

Farm dogs: Kenny from New England

Real name and nickname:  

Ken, but my boss and friends call me Kenny.

What is your favourite thing to do on the farm?

I’m a working dog through and through, so I love getting on the back of the quad runner and going to work. I’m good with cattle but I’ll be honest with you – sheep confuse me.

Have you ever done something really naughty? 

My boss always gets angry with me when I disappear when I’m supposed to be working. Between you and I – I go chasing pigs instead.

Kenny is grateful that his boss installed pools in every paddock as he loves swimming and is considering the Olympics.

What is your worst habit?

I have a habit of sitting in front of the cattle crush when my boss is trying to push cattle down the race. C’mon, I just like to be able to see what’s going on.

What is your favourite food?

I have always enjoyed fresh rabbit however they’re getting harder to catch these days. Or maybe I’m getting a bit slower these days?

If you became famous for one thing, what would it be?

I’m so lucky because my boss has installed swimming pools for me in every paddock. I just love swimming in all of them, and I’m considering entering the next Olympics. 

If you could have another animal as a friend, what would it be?

I have poddy calves as friends – they’re great fun, and as a bonus I always get to drink the last of the milk that they don’t drink.

Favourite toy or thing to play with?

My other mate plays with a ball but that’s not for me. Whatever my boss and I do is always play for me. Or rather, should I say it’s really hard work! 

What does everyone love about you?

I’m gentle, patient and good looking. All the people on our farm want to pat me.

Any last words?

I do it my way. What other way is there? Oh yes, that’s right, the way my boss says.
