Herding again

Lowri - It is fun being the foo-foo dog.  I get lots of treats and everyone loves on me.  That is a blast!   I also get to be the bed dog.  That is very nice.  I walk all over the bed making sure everyone is sleeping.  I am not sure my people appreciate my diligence.  They complain a lot when I walk on them.

BUT!  As fun as it is being a foo-foo dog, I LOVE being a herding dog.  I have been able to herd ducks twice this week.  I LOVE herding ducks.  Every time I bounce, they run.  We have one male duck that TM just brought back from PR's place.  He doesn't like to stay with the group.  I get to make him.  That is FUN!!!

Kearney - TM brought the drake back because the white duck is setting.  She needed at least three ducks to herd with.  TM has a duck setting at PR's place and a duck setting here.  That makes quite an impact on the number we have to herd with.  I hope both of the setting ducks raise lots of little ducklings, because I love herding ducks!  We should have some babies in about a week.  Those are the ones at PR's place.  The babies here should hatch in about three weeks.

TM worked with me on doing big circles and staying out from my ducks.  I did a very good job of driving them around the yard.  TM says I am almost ready!

Chase - I am herding ducks too!  TM decided to try me again.  I finally realized that when I listen to TM, the ducks behave.  TM sent in my entries for the Nationals.  I am now going to get to work ducks and sheep.  I think I really like that idea!  I am staying with TM this week.  We are going to MC's on Friday.  Then on Saturday morning - VERY early - we are going to the herding trials.  I am going to do my best to earn my Herding Excellent title.  TM tells me that I can if I just listen to her some.  I am going to try - even if she always doesn't make sense!

  1. You make an excellent "foo-foo" dog, Lowri, and an even BETTER herding dog! Can't wait for the Nationals and watch you tell those duckies where to go!
