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!
