    FARM DOG | SUGAR AND MICHAEL

    Farmdogs6

    Sugar is a 9-year-old border collie who lives just east of Manhattan. Her owner is Michael Dikeman, a rancher and former faculty member at K-State. Dikeman has had Sugar since she was 5 weeks old. Sugar was born in Iowa, and Dikeman’s daughter drove Sugar to Kansas and gave her a stuffed dog that she tried to nurse the whole trip. Sugar still has the stuffed dog today. When Sugar isn’t herding cattle behind Dikeman’s home, she’s playing with him in the yard or basking in the sun. She’s a happy-go-lucky dog who’s never met a stranger and greets everyone who comes up the driveway.
