Sheep herding would certainly fit in with what title I have already been
given and what I am doing. Just remember that a shepherdesses job is to
PROTECT the sheep.
On a more personal note, as Clan Keeper of the Managerie:
Maqqi, I don't mind you playing with the critters, but, please, put them
back when you get done with them. It took two days and a piece of bubble
gum to get the dog out of the tree. How did you convince him to climb up
What's worse, since then we've had to keep him locked up so that he won't
climb back up. I think he's after some big black bird that's taken up
residence at the top...
