My late boss had some visitors arrive one afternoon. I recognised him straight away as a very high up Minister to Margaret Thatcher. He and his wife got out the car and let an elderly Cocker Spaniel out.
I did say to them that they should keep the dog with them but they went into the house and left the dog outside.
The old boy was wandering around sniffing his way and it didn't take much of a guess to realise he was blinder, darn near.
My Border Collie was boss and she stood in his way as he wandered down the barn. He just walked straight into her ignoring the collie eye. My girl was perplexed and tried again but he just bumped into her again and carried on wandering around.

When the boss and friends came out the house they wanted to go down the fields to see the horse. We wandered out into the filed by the house,. I had about twenty bottle fed lambs in this field and on seeing me they came galloping over knocking the old dog for six
The men went out of the gate and across a busy road, the old dog, having got himself up was following their scent and I only just managed to grab him before he tried to cross the road.
Once in the main paddocks I told the owners to leash him but they said he was fine.
The dog was but I had a dog aggressive horse and whe the dog went into his field the horse was going to stomp him. Luckily I was aware of what could happen and was able to chase the horse off, grab the dog and leash him.

How that dog survived to be as old as he was I will never know because he was nearly trampled twice and run over.

"and here's your dog rescuing bill for the evening".

I rarely blame the dogs. It's almost always the people.
