I love your stories Tamara and you summed up so well how a good working dog has to be fine with routine but ready for unexpected events.

Day after day they walk the same path, do the same things, and perform like any other well trained dog. And then, bam! The routine is upset. A different response is needed. A dog with brains to think on their feet. And then you need not a well trained dog, but a working dog.
