Today our Chaseman won the Herding Titled Class so he’s off to Best of Breed on Saturday. He is building quite a fan base — people who are smitten by his happy attitude (and a few who just want his body). His little girl, Lowri is winning friends as well. She is just so very cute and well behaved. She sits in Susan’s lap at ringside and watches EVERYTHING. If she had thumbs, she would be taking notes. Any number of people have commented on her lovely bone, color, dark eyes, and splendid side gait. Speaking of gates, there was a raffle tonight and I put all my tickets on two items. One was a sign that said “Shut The Damn Gate”. That seemed like it belonged in my back yard — but, alas — I never win raffles.
The prizes are laser cut steel thingys — like light switch covers. The Herding Titled Class first prize was a pair of bookends, but in my joyous stupor, I tried to return one — “Oh,” I said to the prize person, “you gave me two prizes.” She kindly said, “they are bookends”. Well . . . I guess I was excited. Chase has a day off tomorrow so I’m going to find an office supply store to get a box for the health basket that we are auctioning off and I’m going to get a flat rate priority box to send the prizes back to Albuquerque — they’re very heavy. It’s a nice problem to have.
