Out here there are dogs that are supposed to work cattle, but don't, really. Their called blue heelers, and they're a cowboy's best friend. You can see them riding around in pickups or barking at visitors to the ranches and just generally making nuisances of themselves.
But just outside of American Falls there used to be one who was a real benefit to the community. Every election day, the dog would be taken into town by his owned and turned over to the Board of Elections. The Board would then turn him loose and he would round up every voter in town and chivvy them down to the polls. This dog was so smart and his nose so educated that he only brought each person of voting age in once. After he'd rounded up everyone in one ward, the Board took him to the next to do the same thing. He was indeed a true ward heeler.
