If I was a farm animal I would be the scruffy independent dog that makes sure all the animals are safe. Although being the only dog taking care of the sheep can be lonely it would be worth not having to be looked at like some sort of delicious, yummy food.
Being loyal and brave will be enough for my farmer. Even though the top dog works ALOT they also get taken care of ALOT too. During the day I'd play in the fun breeze and in the fun breeze and in the night I'd be the buzz kill guard.
The farmer and his family would love me to death just for making sure I keep the high maintenance pigs and goats attendance. Taking care of the sheep and being friends with all the farm animals, would be awesome and will definitely earn me some points with the farmer. Doggie treats all day would be special treatment and just for being a smart dog would be like heaven. When you're the farm dog you'll always have fun!
