When farmers in upstate New York need help bringing back unruly livestock, they call on Rose, a border collie from a long line of working dogs. Rose even gets paid for her work.

Jon Katz, a Slate contributor and Rose's owner, talks with Noah Adams about his dog's strong work ethic and mysterious private life.
