Kearney - This is our first full weekend at PR's with TM taking Monday's off. It was great! We had the best time. We got to go herding AGAIN. I think I like this new schedule.
One of our friends came over with her dog for a herding lesson. Since her dog was a little confused, I got to help. I LOVE helping. Usually it means I get to run the sheep wildly around the field. I get to grab any sheep that comes in my reach. It encourages the new dog to chase the sheep. I love it! This time it wasn't like that. TM had me help by keeping the sheep on one side of the arena. I was the fence making the arena about 60X60 instead of 60X120. That was pretty fun. TM was very proud of me!
Lowri - I got to herd too. Not for very long, though. TM said I was a very good girl. Later she got me out of the van to wash me off. I was not a good girl. I had things to sniff, places to go. TM called me a couple of times. I started to go to her, and then got distracted again. All of a sudden I noticed that TM was quiet. I looked up and here she came. THAT was NOT good!
I took one look and dashed off. I ran around the van. TM kept coming. This was SO not good. I ran into the barn so I could get out the gate. Oops, the gate was closed. TM said "that was your second mistake." She snatched me up and chewed me out royally! Then she put me down and left the barn. I went with her. When she called me, I was right there at her feet. I got LOTS of praise! I made sure I stayed close. TM kept telling me I was a good girl. I will have to rethink not coming when she calls me.
