group: bad sport

esteemed judge: Ike

Zooarchaeology is the study of animal remains from archaeological sites otherwise known as digs. The remains consist primarily of the hard parts of the body such as bones. Such remains may represent the food refuse of animals otherwise known as pets. The job is intensive and relentless!

A typical report based upon a found assemblages will include the following information:
An inventory of the bones, including species and element
Age-establishing data, based upon smell
Taphonomy, including weathering, gnawing, butchery, burying and related processes

My mission: To gather, guard and not share as many bones as I can possibly unearth.
My inspiration: A wee ditty titled 'Dem Bones'.

name: mollie - a dogherd
gender: female
group: herder
breed: cavoodle
esteemed judge: OC

Herding is the act of bringing individual animals together into a group (a herd), maintaining the group and moving the group from place to place. Herding is used to manage domesticated animals, you got that doyle? The herder will often have 'herd' added to the name of the animal they are herding to describe their occupation. Herding requires exceptional speed and endurance. When people are herded it is often known as crowd control.

My mission: To control the world!
My inspiration: 'I want you to want me' by Cheap Trick

Bring it on and may the best canines score!

Hi, Mollie (and Doyle)
You really have a good handle on what "herding" means... shows you do your homework! I came on over here to meet you and sniff you out before doing my final judging. You do an impressive job of "herding" your brother! OC
