Tracking, Herding, Sleeping

January 23, 2011

Today was Sandia Dog Obedience Club’s annual TD test.  We had absolutely gorgeous weather — mid-40’s, blue skies, high light clouds.  There were six entries with four passes.  A fifth dog tracked beautifully to the last leg.  It’s so nice to see people waving that glove in the air.

Meanwhile in Tennessee, some of the snow is gone so Susan took the Chaseman out to work the sheep.  Cheryl snapped photos and, as usual, I am delighted to receive them.  Even with sweet Inca, silly Holmes, and adorable red brat Nola here, I miss Chase.

No, no, no — do not run the fat off the mutton

Good job, Chase — he isn’t running the sheep across Susan’s feet

Push him back, push him back, way back — staying off the sheep

Poor little Rhys — I sold him into a hard life 🙂

    What a great photo of Rhys and Connie. Yes, Penni, that poor, poor puppy. 🙂

  2. Susan says:

    It is obvious that poor Rhys has been beaten into submission. What a life for a poor puppy. I wish that kind of life for all of them! What a sweet baby.

    Aw, sweet baby Rhys. What a cute picture!

    Reading your mention of Sandia reminded me, my dad was working/stationed at Sandia back in the 1950’s – my brother Dave was born there! I had forgotten all about that. Military brat, you know…can’t always remember where all of us were hatched!
