Lowri - When I was a pup, all I cared about was Letters...and food.  All I cared about was Letters and food... and TM.  Oh whatever!  I wanted LETTERS!  Well today I got another certificate - more letters.  I have more letters in titles than I have in my name - and my name is long.  

All my titles make my name:

Whew, I think I need some food.

Busy Life

Lowri - TM finally figured out why I was so naughty at the herding trial.  My hormones were going crazy.  I am in heat!  I am the pretty panty girl.  I am HOT.

Kevin - She smells GOOD!

Lowri - Dream on, boy.  I have other plans.

TM is hoping I get my act together before the next herding trial.  She took me out to work ducks tonight and I was still naughty.  I was having fun <G>  TM made me work until I quit having fun.  I actually started to work and I did my job very well. 

Kevin - The next event is mine.  I am going to the Knoxville shows in about 10 days.  I am being very, very good.  You don't get to go anywhere until mid-November.

Lowri - You are so wrong.  TM and I are going somewhere this weekend.  You are staying with PR.  Roadtrip!

Today's Herding Trial

Lowri - TM and I slept really well last night.  It was fairly brisk out, so TM added a blanket to the bed.  She got comfortable, and I curled up right next to her.

Kevin - I had to sleep on the floor.  TM won't let me sleep in the middle of the bed and I am afraid of falling off if I get close to the edge. 

Lowri - We got up early and went to the herding trials.  I NQ'ed on A and B again.  A Course was my fault, B Course was TM's fault.  In B Course, my ducks won High in Trial <snicker, giggle>.  When they were let out of the start box, they took off running into the wind.  Two of them were flapping their wings.  They got airborne and one of them just kept climbing and climbing - High in trial, get it? <giggle, snicker>   We got a rerun, because I did not cause it. 

In my rerun, I did a beautiful outrun!  When the ducks were let out, they started nicely toward TM.  I took my eyes off them for a second and they tried to run off the course.  TM called out for me to take a flank - and she called for the WRONG direction.  I went the right way, of course.  TM called the wrong flank a couple of times.  I was covering, but I was a little distracted as TM generally does a pretty good job of asking for flanks.  Because I kept checking on TM, I missed the ducks reversing their direction.  TM told me to cover them, but she called the WRONG direction AGAIN.  I went the correct way, but I lost them.  TM let me go clear up to where the ducks get put away.  I got to run around the vehicle a couple of times, but I kept coming out to see if TM was okay.  She finally called me off.  I RACED over to her grinning the whole way.  TM just laughed and told me how good I was.  She didn't even realize she called the wrong directions until someone told her.  I may need a new handler - one who can hold up their end of the work.

Herding Weekend

Lowri - I am at herding trials with TM.  I got to work ducks in both A and B Course.  My A Course run was SO much fun!  The scribe said I got extra points for being so entertaining.  The judge said I was her favorite baddog.  TM said "


Lowri <G> - TM said if I didn't start behaving, she was going to end my run...I didn't and she did.  I had a BLAST!

My B course run was much better.  I lost one duck right at the start.  It ran all the way back to its crate.  It didn't want to play.  TM called me off and told me to work the other four ducks.  I did it VERY, VERY well.  I got them clear through the course to the shed ring.  Those stupid ducks would not listen to me at all.  It was crazy!  If I moved, they tightened up their grouping and RAN.  TM and I tried and tried.  Finally TM called me to her, thanked the judge and praised me for all my hard work. 

Kevin - I got to come to, but I am just here for the ride.  I love going anywhere with TM.  We are having a great time camping out.  TM has taken us for several long walks.  We get to go on another one tonight.  TM says, I am going to start trialling before too long.  She says I am coming along very nicely.
