Today the Department of Unexpected Interspecies Friendship is celebrating the bond between a basset hound named Lady and her numerous sheep friends on Michael Jobson’s farm in Gamlingay, Cambridgeshire, UK.
Herding isn’t the first skill that comes to mind when thinking about basset hounds, but these sheep are so enamored with Lady that she’s a sheepdoggo without even knowing it. Her ovine friends will follow Lady anywhere, whether or not she’s aware that they’re doing so:
Lady and the sheep have such a strong bond that Jobson and his partner, Fiona Morton, plan to have Lady assist their actual full-time sheepdog, whose name is Tom. What a good doggo.
