A Furry Babysitter

My dear friend Fussy Eater's Mum posted recently about "Panasonica" who is her in-house babysitter.  On The Farm we do utilize our version of "Panasonica", however we have also got an excellent babysitting candidate in Molly.

Molly is our gorgeous border collie/kelpie/huntaway cross.  She is excellent at keeping an eye on The Farmchildren when they are outside.  She regularly runs border patrols around the house and has scared away more than the odd snake over the past few years.  Molly has good sheep dog instincts and has been known to "round up" Farmgirl if she ventures too far from the house....  Molly is regularly smothered with love and is used to being sat on, bear hugged and generally children-handled.

Yesterday evening I was able to take this gorgeous photo of Molly doing her duty with The Farmchildren.
