  1. In My Old Kentucky Home . . .

    November 20, 2010 by myeye

    Give us a “P”!!!  Chase is in Franklin, Kentucky where he earned the first leg of his PT today.  He had some difficult sheep (they had given an Advanced dog a hard time), but he prevailed.  He told them where to go, they recognized his “I mean business” look, and they went.  The judge made nice comments about our boy — including noting his high drive.

    In other, really exciting news, Susan’s Cardigan Kearney (Bluefox’s Kearney) earned a First Place in Started Ducks and then went High in Trial from the Started Sheep Class.  This was Kearney’s first trial run — and a splendid one it was.  He earned a 93/100 on the Sheep.  As you can imagine Susan is one happy herding trainer/handler — even though she discovered the battery on her car had died during the day 🙁

    Hopefully tomorrow we will have more good herding news about the great little dogs-with-no-legs.

  2. Saturday Fix for the Puppy Video Junkies

    Breakfast time is a big deal.  It ends that hour or so when the puppies thought they might starve to death (right).

    After they eat, the Fearsome Foursome engage in wrestling, attacking, barking and other practice to perfect the skills they will need as grown-up Cardis.

    Yep — they are very cute and I am having difficulty getting anything useful accomplished.
