A sheepy day :)

Today we worked sheep. Working on driving with Lucy, we are making some head way, but not as fast as I would like. But, just before we left today, she very nicely walked up, and pushed sheep off me, and drove them ahead of me comfortably, without commands, and pushed them further and further. It was really, I think the first time that she has been able to do this so well.

There were a bunch of other folks there all with dogs working at different levels- every single one was decent, in my eyes :)

Even Danny got to be on sheep. Danny is direct, shall we stay when he starts, and he's fast, but he settles in nice- for a 5.5 month old dog! We are just sort of exposing him to sheep, no commands, no corrections, just be on sheep. He's such a good lad. I think I'll keep him ;) Didn't get too many pics- and many were blurry, but here are a couple that work. At one point he even brought one that had split off from the others back.

It was a lovely day, and I am ready for bed!

Danny says "Tank you auntie Carolyn". He names you the Prez of his fan club. With that comes the priviledge of being the one who gets to caption all his herding pictures :)
