Just because a dog does conformation doesn't mean they can't work. You can work and look pretty while doing it
Logan's sire is straight out of Shadaglen collies, which are a working collie kennel. Bonnie has herds of sheep, and her dogs work them. She didn't get the sheep as a "hobby" for her dogs, she's always had both and the two have coexisted together forever. She was also heavily into tracking with her dogs, and hosted a lot of tracking trials at her place. That's how Logan's breeder got into collies, as initially she was looking for a good SAR prospect and ended up with Logan's uncle.

Sadly, she just bred her last litter. She's getting a lot older and all that comes with it.
