The New York Times recently did a story on dogs who chase off wildlife at golf courses. I have heard of Border Collies who chase off geese at parks and golf courses before but I didn’t know that there were small dogs who do the same thing.
He added, “She does a great job of chasing off the geese, even though they are bigger than she is.”
Pinki was once held by the boxer Oscar De La Hoya when Di Giorgio still lived in the Caribbean. At Fieldstone, a private club where chemical and pharmaceutical executives play, Pinki has met Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.
But Pinki is ready to work when she and Di Giorgio arrive at the course each day about 6 a.m. She runs as many as three miles beside her owner’s cart.
Pinki runs after flocks of geese but carefully avoids the water. She also chases deer and foxes.
Pinki definitely earns her dinner! I love seeing small dogs who prove that they are just as capable as big dogs (in most respects. Mr. N is not going to pull me around in a cart anytime soon).
Mr. N would like to know where he can sign up. He is willing to work for the satisfaction of a job well done. He would like potential employers to know that he has:
- Been accused of trying to herd Border Collies.
- Previous experience chasing geese and ducks away at parks and gardens.
- Outruns his canine best friend who weighs 70-something pounds.
- High energy + endurance.
