I would fain have seen the task of its supply fulfilled by hands more competent thafi mine. But I have reaped already an unforeseen reward in the kindly encouragement extended to a comparative novice by one and all of the well-known breeders and exhibitors to whom I have applied for assistance. Amongst those to whom I owe a debt of gratitude for invaluable hints, for permission to reproduce illustrations, and for other friendly help, I take this opportunity of thanking Mr. William G. Weager, one of the founders of the Old English Sheep Dog Club Sir Humphrey de Trafford, its president Mr.

J. Thomas and Mr. Fre2man Lloyd, two of its original members Mr. T. H. Shout, for many years its honorary secretary Messrs. Tilley, H. Dickson, F. Clayton, Fred IVilmot, F. Travis, F. Birch, J. H. Strick, Dr. MacGill, Mrs. Rivers and, in no small degree, Mrs. Fare Fosse. For the chapter on breeding I am greatly indebted to a work entitled Toogoods Prizcijles of Dog Breedilzg, published by Messrs.

Toogood Sons, Southampton, which I earnestly commend to the notice of those who wish to study this important subject in a specially practical form., One word with regard to the illustrations. Most of them are from photographs, some of which fail entirely to do justice to their subject, and I have included them only because no betterportrait was available. I think that even an indifferent picture conveys, to the mind of the beginner, a clearer mental impression than pages of written description.

Whether the prototype of our modern bob-tail was, as some authorities aver, a massive, powerful animal, whose duties included the guardianship of his flock against the attacks of bears and wolves, must remain a matter of conjecture.

Certainit is that in foreign countries, where these conditions still obtain, and the duties of the sheep dog are those of a guardian rather than a drovers dog, the variety differs considerably from our own...
