Here at EasyCare, we love our dogs as much as we love our horses. We pride ourselves on having a dog-friendly office space. They’re such great company, and their antics provide a lot of great laughs. We’d like to share a little about the dogs at our Durango, Colorado, office that make our days here a little more special.
Hank is a nine-month-old Hangin’ Tree Cowdog. This breed was developed specifically to work cattle. The breed is comprised of 3/8 Border Collie for intense herding instinct and intelligence, 1/8 Catahoula for toughness and the ability to trail and find cattle, 1/4 Kelpie for endurance and herding instinct, and 1/4 Australian Shepherd for courage and the ability to handle any kind of cattle.
Hank was named after the fictitious Hank the Cowdog of the popular young adult book series. In the books, Hank prides himself on being the Head of Ranch Security. He takes his job seriously, and with the help of his sidekick, Drover, he solves all of the mysteries that occur on the ranch.
Hopefully this Hank will take his ranch job just as seriously one of these days. But for now, he spends most of his days at the EasyCare office with Erin Wolcott.
