Lowri - I had the BEST time herding ducks today! I got to run circles around them. Occasionally, I would try to pounce on one, but TM doesn't like that. TM will try to say that at one point she was trying to lift the ducks away from the fence and I wasn't allowing that to happen. All I know is that the ducks were in front of TM, she was along the fence and I was NOT letting them escape! I held them to TM. As TM advanced, so did the ducks, I fell back just enough to hold them to TM. We did the whole fence line that way. TM said she was curious to see what I would do. I held them to her - like I am suppose to! I was a VERY good dog!
Chase - Hi, I am Lowri's daddy. I am visiting at TM's this week. I had to herd the ducks too - er...I mean, I got to herd the ducks too. I appreciate TM taking the time to work with me, but jeez, can't we just work sheep? The ducks are okay and I am doing an okay job with them, but I LIKE sheep! TM did say I did a very good job today. My outrun was nice and wide. I actually had fun, except for this whole thing TM has about stopping. I mean, really, why should I stop, when the ducks are still walking? I just don't get it and I wish she would quit insisting on me stopping. This whole duck thing would be a lot more fun if I got to do it my way!
Kearney - I got to be the closer today. TM said I was excellent <G> When we were putting the ducks away, TM told me to "hold" them. I made sure those ducks stayed right there! TM was happy with how I did that.
Tomorrow night, we all go back to PR's place. Then on Friday, PR is having his back cut on. Do you think they are going to fix him? He might want to stay broken if they do to him what they did to me! TM says they are going to remove some of his backbone to take pressure off a nerve. Poor PR! This should make him feel better.
