New Sleeping Arrangements

Lowri - Last night when we went to bed, TM forgot to put me in my crate!  I followed her to the bedroom so she could see that she forgot me, but she just climbed into bed.  I thought maybe I would get to sleep with her, but she reminded me that PR doesn't want dogs in bed.  That is a treat reserved for dog shows and herding trials.  TM wanted to let me up, but she honors PR's request.

I wandered around for a bit trying to find the best place to sleep.  I didn't want Kearney's spot beside the bed, because that is really well hidden.  I want to take good care of TM when she and I are in town.  I finally settled on a spot in the hallway where I could watch all the doors.  I can't actually see all three doors, but anyone coming in would have to go thru me to get to TM. 

Tonight I got to go herd the ducks.  TM wasn't sure it could be called herding.  She calls it bouncing.  I went very fast and bounced at the ducks every time I got close.  It was a HOOT to watch them run.  TM made me stop and stand there and rethink my approach.  I finally decided to slow down a bit.  TM was pretty happy with me by the time we quit. 


  1. Good thinking, Low! I like to watch you bounce at--err, herd the ducks!

  2. It's good that you found a place to watch over TM and the house all at the same time. Herding is almost always fun for you.
