Dog Names Ending in 'ly' in Pop Culture
Focusing on our spotlight dog, Fly's main purpose in the movie is to teach Babe how to heard sheep, however she also acts as his adopted mother once her puppies have been sold away. Because Babe is a pig, he fears being eaten by the farm family, and so he works extremely hard to make himself useful in an extremely unique way; being the first ever sheep pig. Fly is more than willing to help her adopted son learn to heard the sheep, but her husband, Rex (who is also a Border Collie), is not pleased with the idea at all. At one point in the move, Rex actually attacks Fly during an argument over the subject of Babe and injures her leg. Rex is then chained up and unable to herd the sheep. Since Fly is injured and unable to work effectively, the duty of herding sheep falls to Babe. It is at this point in the movie that the farmer realizes Babe is not just a normal pig and decides to enter him in a sheep herding contest.
In the end, after a myriad of other crazy events, Babe proves himself extremely special and ends up saving his own life due to this new sheep herding talent. While Babe is the main character of the story, nothing would have been possible if Fly hadn't believed in him. Fly is a great example of how fantastic Border Collies are as working animals and companions. They are extremely intelligent, independent, and reliable. If you have a Border Collie (or any other type of breed) with an independent, yet motherly disposition , you may decide that the name "Fly" is perfect!
