When she began her career as a professional sheep dog Floss was impressive- the sheep responded well to her, she was faster than your average and shecertainly looked good.

自从弗洛斯当上牧羊狗之后,就相当引人注目,她速度快、颜值佳,羊群们也很听她的话。

But farmer Dave Issac has reluctantly decided to sell Floss as she is nowtoo big to get through his farmyard gates - because she is a Peugeot estatecar.

但是最近她的主人戴夫·伊萨克不得已决定将她卖掉,因为她太大了连戴夫家农场的门都进不了。怎么回事呢?原来弗洛斯实际上是一辆标致小汽车。

Mr Issac, 46, who lives on an 180-acre farm near Battle in East Sussex,converted the family car into a working sheep dog in tribute to his dog whichhad recently died.

今年46岁的戴夫,住在东萨塞克斯郡巴特尔附近的一个180英亩的大农场里,他把家里的车改装成了一条大狗,以纪念他刚刚去世的狗狗弗洛斯。

He spent 2,000 covering the family car in fur and modifying it until itbecame an exact replica of Floss, his favourite sheep dog.

他花了2000英镑在汽车外面加装皮毛和装饰,把这辆车变成了他最爱的狗狗弗洛斯的样子。

Floss the sheep dog car, who has a top speed of 40mph, soon proved to be asurprisingly effective herder as the flock of sheep failed to notice they werebeing rounded up by a much larger animal with headlamps for eyes and anexhaust.

这辆大狗车,最高时速可达40英里,而且事实证明是条非常有效的牧羊狗,因为羊群们分辨不出是一条比普通动物大的多的狗狗在驱赶它们。

Mr Issac said: 'I know it was a bit of a mad thing to do but it was atribute to my old sheep dog Floss who passed away.

戴夫说:“我知道这样做看起来很疯狂,但这确实是对我死去的狗狗弗洛斯一个很好的纪念。”

'I have three kids and we loved her and as a family we all missed herterribly.

“我有三个孩子,我们都很爱弗洛斯,把她当做家人,我们都十分想念她。”

'So I got together with a friend and we built Floss the sheep dog car in mybarn, copying as closely as I could every last detail of my old dog.

“所以我和一个朋友一起在我的谷仓里完成了这辆大狗车,尽可能地还原了弗洛斯的样子。”

'Sheep aren't known for their intelligence and they didn't seem to noticethe difference so they were quite happy.

“羊的智商不高,似乎看不出来差异,所以它们仍然非常开心。”

But Floss the car, which is not licensed to drive on public roads, is nowtoo big to navigate along the narrow farm tracks and through the gates to MrIssac's fields.

但是这辆没有上路行驶许可证的大狗车,由于太大而无法通过农场的小路以及农场大门。

Because Floss also required a timber frame built around the Peugeot'schassis to attach the fur, the car is now taking up too much space in the barnof a busy working farm.

而且由于大狗车的外部需要一个木支架来固定皮毛,所以她巨大的体积在谷仓里很占地方。

Mr Issac added:'They were things we didn't really consider when we builther so with a heavy heart she is going on E-bay.

戴夫还说:“当初着手做的时候并没有考虑到这些问题,所以现在我们怀着沉重的心情把她放在E-bay网上准备卖掉。”

'It's been a lot of fun and she handles well, is obedient and nice anddocile and surprisingly aerodynamic.

“这辆车非常好玩而且操作方便,她听话、友好、温顺,关键是非常符合空气动力学原理。”

Mr Isaac hopes Floss the sheep dog car may interest festival organisers ordog charities as a fun car.

戴夫希望这辆名叫弗洛斯的大狗车能够引起节日组织者或是狗狗慈善协会等人的兴趣,把它作为一辆趣味汽车。

'As long as she goes to a good home I'll be happy,' he said.

“只要她能有好的去处,我就会非常开心的。”

Floss shares more than a few characteristics with the iconic Mutts Cuttsvan immortalised in the cult film Dumb and Dumber.

电影《阿呆和阿瓜》中的狗狗车跟戴夫这辆大狗车造型很像。
