Working, Show or Sport Bred

I know the sheer title of my blog gets hackles up and people automatically get defensive. In this case I am not talking about border collies. I have already said my peace about that many times and all to many times on the Internet. In this instance I am talking about my Range Rover. 

My Range Rover is working bred

He often in need of a bath. Has been used to chase sheep through fields while I am whistling away to my dog. Also has been seen carrying an escaped guardian dog in the back seat. His inside is covered in dog hair, dirt and some sort of hay or grass on the floor. A very useful machine around the farm. I sometimes feel bad when we go to town and the show Range Rovers point at mine and laugh at how much dust and dirt is on him.

In comparison below is a picture of the show Range Rover.

Yes, shiny and pretty but really what is it good for.
Needs to be kept indoors.
Can it go off pavement and drive through puddles to check on cows. 
Can it handle gravel roads at 110 km. 
Can it pull out a truck from a snow bank.

I was unable to find any pictures of the elusive sport bred Range Rover. But I imagine it is hard to live with. Can't keep it in the garage. Probably uses alot of fuel because it always wants to go fast. Maybe has some flashy colors on it and driving around with some sort of cooling device on it's roof. 

After writing this blog I feel bad for my little guy. I am going to give him a bath and maybe even take the matts out from behind his wheels.

a friend of mine has a flashy "sport bred" "rover", he admits he over paid for it, but it's unique :) - it's orange and has fancy stickers on it - and it looks cool - what's not too love. the thing costs an arm and a leg to drive - but did i mention it looks cool? it lives a life of urban luxury in Calgary and occasionally sees a gravel road and hauls a mountain bike or two around. :) :) :)
