Trio rules the roost
Jeff and Jane Long, with their dogs Emma, Charlie and Chip, look after 7000 emus on their property at Tragowel. Placid . . .
Emma and Charlie sit quietly among the emus as the inquisitive birds peck at their collars.
Paddock work . . . with Emma and Chip. Jeff
Chips off old block . . . It’s Emma’s job to carry the next generation of Chips — she is pregnant with a litter due soon.
Brave one . . . He might be the smallest, but Charlie doesn’t let his size stop him — he is the bravest of the three dogs.
No barrier . . . Chip and Emma in action, jumping the fence to round up the baby emus.
