When Floss lived in town, she loved playing ball with the children. Now she lives on a farm and has to work for her keep. But will she make a good sheepdog? Read by Matt Baker

Listen to an audio clip

Follow down the slope of her forehead to find her wet, black nose. A wet nose means a strong and healthy dog. Underneath, hanging out of her mouth is her pink tongue. Dogs often do this to cool themselves down.
Trace right and feel across Floss's body. She has a thick coat that is crinkly to touch. Can you feel the texture of her coat with your fingernails? Trace down with both hands to feel four legs. One front leg is stretched out to the left ready for a leap and her other front leg is tucked up and curled up to the right in mid-run.
