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.

Fun, Fun, Fun Weekend!

Lowri - TM and I are in Georgia getting ready for a weekend of herding trials.  I came into heat day before yesterday. <snicker>  I have already informed TM that the rules applying to me listening no longer apply - I am in HEAT <G>  I am going to have FUN this weekend.  TM?  Not so much <snort>

Kevin went to dog shows with Ms. Cydne.  MC will check in on him tomorrow.  She is going to the shows with my baby, Trewe.  Another one of my babies will also be there, Barron.  They are going to show in the 4-6 month puppy class.  TM is pretty sure that with my coming into heat, that she should bag the trials and go to the show.  She wants to see the GOOD dogs.  <ha ha ha>  She is stuck with ME.

Good Day? Bad Day?

Lowri - I can't tell if today is a good day or a bad day.  On the good part of the equation, TM took Kevin to the Handler's place as he is going to dog shows this weekend.  I didn't get a bath.  We are leaving for herding trials tomorrow.  I am going to have a blast.

On the bad side.  TM took Kevin to the Handle's place as he is going to the dog shows this weekend.  He isn't HERE!  I still had to have my toenails done.  I came into heat yesterday and now have to wear panties.  TM is calling me the pretty, panty-girl.

On the good side.  TM's goat had her baby safely.  On the bad side.  The goat only had ONE baby and it was a boy.

So lots of good stuff, some not so good stuff.  TM just put her finger on the scale on the side of good.  She is giving me scritches.

Bunnies and Class

Lowri - We came back to town this afternoon.  When TM let us out of the car, she said there were bunnies in the yard.  I dashed in to see if I could get an early dinner.  TM had left the side yard gate CLOSED.  I couldn't get back into the yard to get the bunny.  TM was apologetic when she realized her mistake.  I don't think she understood the error of her ways.  She was smiling!

Kevin - After TM let the bunny escape, we all got to go to handling class.  I love seeing Miss Jan, our leader, as she always pets on me.  Tonight was weird.  TM worked me a couple of times, then started working Trewe.  Gamma Cheryl gave me to someone sitting on the sidelines.  They petted on me.  I was not happy, but then they brought out the treats.  I was willing to allow them to pet on me as long as they handed me treats.  I even had to go to the strange man!  He sat on the floor and was very gentle with me.

Lowri - I teamed up with Mama Cheryl again.  It has been six months since we worked out together.  She hadn't forgotten anything.  I was so proud of her.  I trotted and showed off so people would watch me rather than MC.  Miss Madeline, Fable's junior handler, really liked me.  She said I was so very easy to show.  Well, yeah, I am experienced.

Big Day

Lowri - TM took Kevin and left ME alone in the run.  I had to stay there ALL DAY!  I was not pleased.

Kevin - TM and I went to Gamma Cheryl's for the puppy party.  I had to be there to make sure all my babies went to the best homes.  They did!  I was very pleased.  We spent several hours there.  After we had been there for a while, I consented to let people pet me.  I had to get to know them before I was happy to have their hands on me.  I did manage to talk my daughter's new person into giving me some cheese.  I even wagged my tail to get some extra morsels.

Lowri - While I was locked in the run, Aidan got to hang with Papa Ron.  They were outside for most of the day because Miss Ginger came to clean the house.  I barely got to say Hi to her - and I LOVE Miss Ginger.  TM is very happy with how the house looks and smells.

Kevin - When TM went to lock up the chickens tonight, we didn't get to go.  She took her camera and got some pictures of the new baby goats.  They are about 10 days old. 
One of the new-to-us nannies with her twin baby girls.

TM loves the black spots on the hocks.

Our lambs.  They are between 2 and 3 months old.

This is our pasture.

Puppies and Work

Lowri - TM had to work really hard today.  One of her clients really, really just wanted to relax.  TM put her heart and soul into that massage.  It is too funny, TM is really relaxed now too.  She just wants to go to sleep. 

Kevin - Gamma Cheryl came up with my puppies.  We got to play and play with them.  They are really cute.  They are almost eight weeks old.  Gamma Cheryl brought them up to see us so TM could give them their shots.  Chico was the only one who whimpered.  Poor baby.  I got to see them on Sunday too.  TM herded with Story and Fable.  Then my babies all got microchips.  TM says that will make them safer. 

I get to go to the puppy party on Saturday.  I will watch over all my babies and make sure they are going to good homes.  There might even be some snacks for me.  That would be good.
