Was recently helping my neighbour cow cockie, along with others, with yarding of 600 odd cattle for the vet. Good chance to get away from the computer and enjoy the outside in fine weather.
Vet (female, new import from Mother country, not used to locals?) was administering various vaccinations.
Subject of useless mongrel working dogs came up and discussions ensued...
Me - "My working dog gets very vocal when she has to run around our 10 acres herding cattle beasts."
Vet - "Is she a heading dog or a huntaway?"
Me - "Nah, the better half..."
Much ROTFL had by all, even from the same better half when informed later.
