The Bodyguard

Arla M. Ruggles

Cherry Creek-Ely_NV, United States

Artist's Description

Seen along a remote dirt road …. it struck me as perfectly iconic of March in rural Nevada; lambing time draws near – a time of rebirth and renewal – and peace.

The resting dog appears to be a cross-breed, Great Pyrrenese and Australian shepherd. Pyrrenese are highly regarded as defenders against predators, and they generally work the night shift, patroling boundaries. Australians and border collies are preferred herding dogs in the region. No efforts are made to keep bloodlines from mixing.
