Taking the cow by the horns

The dog taking the cow by the horns

Mr Norman Bissett at Blockhouse Bay is the owner of this pair, Brownie and Pansy. The latter is regularly led back to the paddock by the dog after milking.

In the photograph the pair are walking west along the unformed Gilfillan Street, with the Bissett Tearooms and Store on the corner in the background.
