|It is a common trait. I have friends who were house hunting, slammed on the car brakes and ran towards a couple with two sheepdogs. The dog owners froze not knowing what was happening until my friend pointed to his cap with a sheepdog on it, "We have a sheepdog, we have a sheepdog!" Turns out one of the two sheepdogs was one of my rescues and my friends had met him on a previous visit to town.
Friends bought a home in the neighborhood and to this day report they often drive by the 2 sheepie house in hopes of seeing them. (and friends are now a 2 sheepdog family)
Personally I've been known to make a U turn on a busy street just to look at a sheepdog out on a trek w/ him Upright.
|Ha ha ha a dog stalker.
I get all excited when I see a sheepie out and about but that is hardly ever.
My DH even reports any sheepie sightings.
|I do it too.
AND all of my guys report sheepie sightings to me too.
|Guilty here, too. I've been known to b-line towards any sheepies I meet in public.|
|Also guilty!! We have an OEs in the neighborhood over, and we always drive by. Hung out with the OES once, but since then... we've only admired from far away.|
|Welcome to my world|
|We never see any OES when out, just our own.
LeAnne and I were walking Chewie and Martha in town a few months ago. We were walking past a house, and the guy that lived there was so excited. He was just coming home and pulling in his driveway as we rounded his corner. He jumped from his car, and ran across his yard and was petting them and asking all sorts of questions.
He even said his own dog was probably put out (and it was sadly watching out the front door) that he came home and ignored his own dog.
He and his wife stopped us later in our walk (leaving in their car) - pulled over to the sidewalk and hoped we would walk there more often. He made the comment - "we need more good looking dogs like yours walking in our neighborhood!"
I guess we have our own dog stalker.
|I really wanted to get out of my car and pet that sheepy! But the lady walking was on her cell phone and it was raining so I am pretty sure she wouldn't have appreciated it. When I yelled out my window that I loved her dog she said "He's a handful" and all I could think was I CAN'T WAIT FOR MY HANDFUL!!!! That and wondering how hard it would be dognap an OES. lol Oh don't worry I would NEVER do that! But seeing that sheepy made me want mine NOW!!! lol|
|Your post made me think about a gentleman that I used to live near - he was a policeman and LOVED Old English Sheepdogs. Whenever he used to see Winston in the front yard with me - he would pull over in his patrol car and visit. One evening - he called a couple of his cop buddies and they all came over - we had three patrol cars in the driveway I am sure the neighbors that didn't know us thought there was something pretty crazy going on at the house.|

Ha ha ha he was ruining your neighbourhood reputation.
Mind you if he was driving past looking out for (stalking) you often, he probably kept crime down in your neighbourhood.
Did you get a photo of Winston in a patrol car????
|I didn't think to get a picture ---too bad. Winston's is also known as " Dog Cop." He has a thing for stopping other dogs from playing or having fun. It would have been pretty cool to have a picture of him with his police friends.|
|I need Dog Cop to police mad Tiggy at the park.|
|Also guilty matter of fact 2 nites ago I was driving through a small town coming from the chiropracter and there was a woman walking an OES!!! I almost slammed on my breaks and turned but I was in so much pain ( my siatic nerve is pinched ) I wouldn't have been able to get out of the car gracefully to see him! But I guess I am a stalker too!|
|I am so guilty of this. We don't see many sheepies around here so when I see one, I am right there.|
|And I thought I was the only one out there! Back at home in Budapest, I even get off the bus earlier on the way home just so I can walk pass a house with a sheepie in it. He is outside most of the time and he doesn't come close to the fence but I still like to walk pass him to say hi.|
|I have met five people here in Evergreen who have OES. I usually stop and say hi. I do drive by (if in the area) to look to see if they are out. The other day I was walking Obe and a lady parks and jumps out with her OES. I just had to met you and your dog. I am just as guilty so I cant complain. Just something about an OES, I guess.|
