Still Awesome

Lowri - I don't think TM properly conveyed my awesomeness this weekend.  I tried to tell her, but her typing just wasn't up to it.  On Saturday, I brought a wild lamb, who was bouncing like a deer, back to the pen twice!  He was loose, by himself, and I brought him back - WITHOUT putting him through any fences!  I went out behind him and drove him back to the other lamb in the pen.

On Sunday, I went up on the hill, BY MYSELF, and brought the sheep back to TM.  Most of the time, the sheep and I were out of sight!  Did I give up?  NO!  Did I come back to check in with TM?  NO!  I rounded up the sheep and brought them back to TM.  I listened!  I did not do my normal "run right at them and chase them until they run to TM for protection."  I LISTENED to TM direct me.  Okay, so I took them around the upper part of the field twice.  I figured out what TM was saying when I was a LONG way away!  I was AWESOME!!!!

Today, I moved stock for the dogs that were there for lessons.  I shouted out encouragement and directions to the dogs that didn't do it right.  I TRIED to help them.  That is hard to do when you are in a crate!  TM let me out to move the sheep or ducks into the field.  I am a useful farm dog.  I do NOT get the credit I deserve.   Just sayin'!

Today, I went and had preliminary x-rays of my hips.  Even though I cooperated, they didn't get me positioned correctly.  TM says the femur heads are well set and overall they think the x-rays are fine.  She says we will go somewhere else for OFA x-rays later on.  I have to be two before that can happen.  TM did say I was a chunk and my diet will continue.  BOO!


  1. You are the AWESOME doggy, Low! Sorry, Dinah wouldn't listen to your helpful comments--she's young yet and thinks she knows better than her elders (just sayin')!

  2. I look forward to one day being able to see you work! You're a real working dog with brains and beauty to spare (and probably some extra energy, too).

    1. Thank you, Miss Emily. Maybe TM will take note of your comments! And, yah, that extra energy part is apparent through my bouncing :)

      Love, Lowri
