Earl is a longer, leaner McNab than Molly. Of course, a bowling ball is longer and leaner than Molly - but as McNabs go, they are two different types entirely. Behaviorally, Earl is less rowdy, less nurturing, a bit more protective and watchful. He prefers to snuggle for a few minutes, or to sleep with his head on my feet, rather than to sleep in my arms as Molly does. On the cows, Earl likes to circle the group and keep them together, while Molly is the go-to dog for heading them. He's the dog who won't come in until all his humans are gathered safely, the one who waits behind to make sure the slower human on a hike is safe.
How fortunate we are to be in the presence of these loving, kind, smart animals.
