Barn Hunt and Cows

Lowri - I got to go to Barn Hunt class today.  I was AWESOME.  Well, after the rats got there I was great.  TM used the time before hand by having me do tunnels.  Once I figured out that there were no rats on site, I expressed my displeasure - on top of the highest bale of straw.  One little poop.  TM then expressed HER displeasure.  She won.

Anyway, once the rats showed up, I was flawless!  I got to do three runs.  I had sooooo much fun!  I am ready for the trials in two weeks.

Kevin - I didn't get to do Barn Hunt practice, but I got to go.  I did get to sniff and paw at a rat in a tube.  TM patted me and told me how good I was.  I didn't pee or poop inside at all.  I was good.

Lowri - We picked blackberries when we got home.  They are sooo good.  Kevin loves to help pick, but he doesn't share.  He just eats them himself.  I like it best when TM tosses me some.  That way I don't have to hit the thorns.

When TM went to put up the chickens, she saw the cows were out.  I got to help put them up.

TM - Lowri...

Lowri - Well I barked encouragement from the house.  After she was back at the house, TM decided she needed to lock the livestock in the far field so they couldn't get out.  I got to go help!  I got to ride down in the Gator and then...well, I waited there in case TM needed help.  I looked fierce, and waited for her call.  She was able to manage it herself, but I was ready.  TM wouldn't have worried, but the bull needed to be moved too.  TM doesn't like the bull.

Gator and Blackberries

Lowri - PR bought a Gator for TM to drive around the farm.  TM is all excited as she can carry all her tools and doesn't have to walk when she is fixing the fences.  We got to scout the electric fence to see if maybe it needed some fixing.  TM drove and Kevin and I got to ride in the back.  We drove all over the back pasture.  It was great!

Kevin - TM found some previously unknown blackberry patches in the back field.  She went back out and picked half a gallon of blackberries.  We didn't get to go on that trip.  I was sorry, I LOVE picking blackberries.  So TM walked us out the back of the house and up the hill so we could pick some.  Oh man, are they good!  Lowri, Aidan and I were all picking and eating the berries.  Yum!

Lowri - I was the first one to ride in the back of the Gator.  PR took TM for a ride around the hay fields last night.  TM popped me into the back.  PR was worried that I might jump out.  TM said I was smart enough not to.  She was right.  We didn't even jump out when Kevin and I went down to do chores with TM this morning.

Kevin - PR tried to give Aidan a ride.  He did NOT like it.  His legs are too long and his center of gravity is too high.  He would have liked it if he had been built like a Cardigan, but that would have made him a silly looking Vizsla <G>

A Night Out

Lowri - TM let me stay with Papa Ron last night.  I got to rule the roost!  I had a great time without TM telling me what to do.

Kevin - TM and I went to Georgia by ourselves!  We were only gone for the night.  We slept in the new van (we have only had it for two weeks).  I told TM the twin air mattress was too small for both of us.  She didn't take the hint to get off it.  I gave up and went back to my crate to sleep.

We went to the herding place in Georgia - but didn't get to herd.  I didn't understand that part, but TM was okay with it.  She and I hung out together while she learned about judging herding trials.  TM isn't going to be a judge right now, but she wanted know more about it.  I said "Hi" to a lot of the people there.  Then we drove home.  It was a long way to go, but we had fun in the van. 

TM can stand up straight in the van - she is 6' 1" tall.  We have LOTS of room.

Kevin's Ad

Kevin - I have an ad too. 

Lowri - Yes, you do, but this is MY blog.

TM - wa, wah, wa, Lowri!

Lowri - Kevin, TM can show your ad too.  You are very handsome - and you sorta work sheep well.
My friend, Ms Cydne Clark is showing me.

Nationals

Lowri - Okay, TM says she is embarrassed that she has been so incredibly busy that she hasn't typed my thoughts.  She is still listening to me, but she hasn't take the time to post for me.

I had a FABULOUS Nationals.  I got to do almost everything.  I earned a High in Trial at our second herding trial.  It was Cardigans Only, but there were some very nice working dogs.  Tuesday, I earned my CGC - that is the Canine Good Citizen award.  TM was worried that I would forget my manners when I met some new people and dogs, so she reminded me each time.  Like that was necessary - NOT!  I behaved beautifully.

Then I was off until Saturday.  I show in the Best of Breed class and almost won!  I was Select Bitch to my good friend, Larimar.  I can't tell you how close it was.  Then, I won the Brood Bitch class with my gorgeous daughters, Gimme and Fable.   TM says with my week, it was good that I didn't go BOB as then we would have had to quit showing altogether as I would have won everything.   Here are some pictures of my ads that TM is putting in the bulletin.

This is just the idea of what TM wants.  The ad magic people will make it look awesome.



Kevin - I also participated.  I didn't win anything, but I was there.

Nationals Herding

Lowri - LETTERS, I have more letters!!!  Pending confirmation by AKC my name is now:
BISS GCH Mockingbird Elyan Magic Moment HSAsd HSBd HIAd HIBd HXAd ROMb.  Who would have thought when I first learned about letters that I would have so many!

I had the BEST time today.  TM let me work stock all day long!  I had SIX runs, four on ducks and two on sheep.  It was great!  I cleaned up in addition to earning new letters.  I won five BIG rosettes.  I was amazing.  TM said so multiple times.  She was very, very happy with my outruns.  I qualified in four of my six runs.  Even though it was really, really hot, I worked hard. 

Kevin - I also participated.  I had two runs on sheep.  TM moved me up to Started even though I wasn't close to ready.  She said I made a very good effort, even if I didn't qualify.

Catching up

Lowri - TM has been busy, busy, busy.  She is the chair for the herding trials for the CWCCA Nationals.  They are going to be held on Monday, May 11th.  TM has done work on it every night this week.

She has been ignoring me.  That won't go on any longer!  I am in heat.  I have started waving my tail at the boys.  Kevin isn't frantic yet, but it is coming - soon.

We had a pretty good trial last weekend.  I got a leg in B Course Intermediate Ducks and one in Advanced A Course Ducks.  I got carried away in my other two classes.  I had a lot of fun, but TM wasn't too happy with me.  Oh well, more trials are coming up.

Kevin - Lowri is sooooooooooo hot.  I just have to be with her.  She is hot, hot, hot!

Lowri - We got to go herding today.  I was very good.  I did pretty nice flanks, and my stops were good.  TM was fairly pleased.  Kevin did a decent job too.

Kevin - Lowri is beautiful.  She is tasty too.  I clean what ever I can reach of her.  TM has her locked away from me, but I can get close enough to clean.  She has a strange power over me.
