Kearney - It was HOT today. This morning was okay, there was a breeze and TM had parked under a tree and put sun screens on the van. This afternoon was just plain hot. We took lots of naps and drank lots of water. TM also dumped Chase and me in the water trough to cool us down.
TM said I was a good boy today. She said I was "Excellent". I got my first Intermediate duck leg and was High Scoring dog on ducks. Then on sheep, I started out having a gooooood time. TM said I went deaf. I didn't, of course. I was just having too much fun on my own. I finally settled down and finished the course. Even though I was pretty wild, I qualified for my second Intermediate Sheep leg. I was the only intermediate dog to qualify. TM has hopes that I will be a good dog tomorrow. But I gotta say, I AM still a puppy.
Chase was a pretty good boy. He didn't qualify on ducks but he finished his Started sheep title, so he gets to add HSAs after his name. My sister, Treasure, qualified in Herding Tested. That gave her the HT letters after her name and gave my mother, Hannah, her Register of Merit Silver title. TM says I have to add that all the titles are pending AKC or CWCCA verification.
Lowri - Chase and Lowri got letters. I want letters! TM didn't let me chase the sheep or ducks at all. G'ma Carolyn and Mama Penni held me while TM was busy with everyone else. I watched and watched, but remembered that I shouldn't offer pointers. Apparently, the dogs that are working don't like it when I tell them how to do it.
I got to kiss lots of people and a number of different dogs. I entertained myself with an empty water bottle for a while. In general, I was VERY charming. I ended up deciding that it was just too hot and I crawled under MP's chair and sacked out. I hear we are going back tomorrow. I hope I get to kiss people again!
