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.
