Kearney - It has been a weird weekend. TM had Friday off and then worked on Saturday. We got to stay with PR as TM was only gone for the day. TM was especially happy that her housekeeper got to come, off her normal schedule. She left Miss Ginger at the house cleaning. TM LOVES it when Miss Ginger comes!
Lowri - We were pretty bored because we hadn't gotten to go out into the yard at PR's. His yard isn't fenced and we can't just stay out unsupervised - even though it is a quarter mile away from the road. When it had cooled off, TM took us out for a long walk. We went down to see the stock. When we got there, we saw a young duck had gotten out. Aidan immediately pointed. Kear and I froze as TM said "Stop". Daisy ignored us all and dashed in and grabbed the duck. Good thing she is so small! TM yelled at her and she let go. Aidan went back on point, we held our stop. There went Daisy in again! TM yelled at her again and opened the gate. Kear and I helped herd it back into the pen. TM was impressed that Aidan held his point so long.
Kearney - Today, TM built a small round pen. She is going to Instinct test two dogs tomorrow. Since she had torn down the old round pen and built us a regulation-sized duck arena, she didn't have a good place to do the instinct test. We put the sheep into the pen and worked them for a few minutes. TM wanted to make sure the sheep knew they were just supposed to move around the pen.
Lowri - I had one sheep that kept wanting to attack me. I wasn't sure about it, but TM kept encouraging me. I made that sheep move!
Now it is raining! TM is doing a happy dance. It already feels cooler!
