      I seem to remember that one starting a controversy at the Old Ranch because of the song about hunting rabbit for pie. Or maybe it was somewhere else.

        It’s a very old song sung by two English comedians – and it’s on the side of the rabbit!

          “Run Rabbit Run” sung by Flanagan and Allen – probably best remembered as the theme song of the endlessly repeated BBC comedy show “Dad’s Army”, which I can remember watching when it was new.

          *feels old*

            I was already familiar with Flanagan and Allen and when I heard the song I bought the whole album. I haven’t seen “Dad’s Army” – not sure it’s been aired in the states.

    This is genuinely hilarious. Now, he does have them following him. It’s just that he has to keep well in front of them because I’m not sure their intentions are entirely peaceful.

      I was thinking maybe they think he’s a little lamb.

    That’s what I was thinking, he’s not herding them, he’s leading them LOL!!

    From Youtube “Nelson the ‘part’ Norfolk terrier gets a sheep ‘hurry up'”
    There’s the problem right there. Terriers don’t herd, they play chase!

    Where’s a Border Collie when you need one?!

    I agree. Nelson is small, white and fluffy but those sheep look sort of mean. Can sheep be mean?

    Sheep – terrible when roused.

    Yeah, I don’t think either party has a grasp of the rules here. More like ‘randomly running around because it’s a nice day.’ πŸ˜€

    He wants to be chased. That is totally “Come! Chase me! Let’s play!” body language. I’ve seen it in many a small dog. He’s delighted the sheep are willing to play.
