Terrier Work Down Under

A little terrier work from Australia with shovel, cross-bred fox terrier and side-by-side.   The full story, and more pictures, can be found here.  

The good news is that on this farm they have embraced terrier work for species protection and farm balance rather than the dreaded poison 1080.

Hard copies are available and I should be receiving mine shortly.
