Lowri - We didn't go the dog show today. TM only entered me on Saturday. Today, my sister, Sally, won! She got FIVE more points. She only has one more to go to be a champion! She is great!!! My Mama, Scout, went Select, so G'ma Janet got to come home early.
TM picked green beans again and canned them. Then she took PR to town and they bought some supplies. MC came up with my Daddy and Treasure. TM helped us all in our herding. Daddy did a good job. TM did lots of cheering when he was right. He likes that. Treasure got to work after Daddy. She was enthusiastic. TM was very happy with her. She was able to put some pressure on Treasure, and Treasure kept working happily. That was very good.
I got to go last. I made the sheep move! TM walked all over and I kept the sheep to her. At the end of the lesson, I got to "hold" the sheep. I made them stay right there! TM finally let the sheep out of the round pen and we went up the field to let all the sheep go into the big field. I ran around some, but I did not go chase the sheep. TM said "that'll do." That means we are done and I am not suppose to chase them any more. I was a very good girl.
Kearney - I had to bring all the sheep into the field and separate them so everyone else could work them. The cows were in the middle field, so TM brought me out on a long line. She knew I would leave if the cows even looked at me. This way I had to go with her. We went up to the heifer. TM bopped her with the stock stick and the cow left. TM told me to push her and told me I was very brave. I got pretty pumped! Then I had to go out into the big field to get the sheep. I did a very big outrun. The sheep decided that I could make them mind, so they came on in to be worked. I had a good time and TM was happy with me.
