We Are Home

Lowri - We are home from our herding trials.  I was the GOOD DOG!  TM, it is not nice to snort!

Okay, so maybe I was just barely under control.  I had BAD ducks.  Okay, so maybe I caused them to be bad.  But I did manage to qualify - in ALL my classes.  On Saturday, I qualified on Intermediate Ducks.  I WON my class...all right, I was the only one in my class, but I Q'ed.  That means I won!
In Started Sheep, TM YELLED at me... a lot <G>  I didn't care, I was having too much fun.  I took a 2nd place in a class of eight.  It was good enough to earn a Reserve High in Trial.  TM laughed and laughed.  I sort of got it by default in being one of the last dogs standing at the end of the day.  I also finished my Started Sheep title.  That got me another letter in my name!

I do have to say, TM may be giving me a LOT of grief, but the stock people said they thought I was going to be very good - if I ever grow up.  TM grinned and said I could certainly handle the stock.  She just wishes I would quit goosing them to prove I can stop them from bolting.

Today, I qualified again on Intermediate ducks.  The judge was very impressed with my mad skills.  She liked that I schooled the bad duck - without hurting him.  I scored big!  I went High in Trial!  I STRUTTED my stuff!  I earned MORE letters!  TM decided to go home instead of letting me be wild on sheep.  She says she is going to set it up so that I will get a lesson instead.  That doesn't sound really good.

Anyway, pending AKC approval, my name is now GCh (bronze) Mockingbird Elyan Magic Moment, HSAsd, HSBd, HIAd.  Maybe someday I will have as many letters as my daddy.
