Kearney - TM met with MC last night and picked up Chase. When she got home with him, she let him herd the ducks. She said he did a good job. It is a good thing too, because he has more mouths to feed. Lisa Anderson's Ditto, is raising NINE puppies by Chase.
Today we got to herd the sheep again. With all the shows, we haven't been doing much herding. I got to go first. I moved the lambs around the pen and turned them whenever TM asked me too. I had so much fun. I love herding.
Chase went next. TM is working with him on staying out from the lambs. He did a pretty good job (although I was better!). When TM finished with Chase, she let him go to water. Chase walked into the creek and laid down. He rolled onto his side and just soaked himself. TM was laughing at him. She will try to get video tomorrow.
Lowri - I got to go next! TM called the big mama sheep down off the hill and put them in the pen. I got to work on holding my stay (I DID) and then moving the sheep so they stayed with TM. I am learning to rate my speed. I made the sheepies move with TM and stay with her. I LOVE herding! It is even better than being a show princess. Although, at shows, lots of people love on me - that is fun too. I guess I will just have to do both (giggle).
Then we heard that my sister, Sally, won at her dog show! That is so cool! Three of us now have points! My beautiful mama, Scout, went Best of Breed! G'ma Janet has to be having the BEST couple of weeks!
