Very Kind

A conversation about our daily routines opened into a deep appreciation for the "Lassie" species:

Me: So, do you have any pets at home?
Student: No, but my parents have a dog.
Me: What kind of dog do your parents have?
Student: It's... this dog likes to gather... cows.
Me: Ah, a sheepdog?
Student: ...yes...?
Me: Is the dog like Lassie?
Student: OH YES! She's not a Lassie, but she's very kind.
