The Crazies and I all went out to Julie's this afternoon for a little walking, and a little dog working. I'm running Nick in Nursery at the Climax SDT in just a little over a week, and we'll be doing a last tune-up with Robin on Sunday. Today we mostly worked on shedding actually. I wasn't sure that was what I was going to do when I walked out there, but it sort of happened that way. Turned out that Zippy managed to squeak into the pasture with us, so it made for some interesting pressures.
I worked a tad with Linc on outruns, but we were having some struggles and I suspect it was either the sheep not being quite appropriate or him catching my vibes. I didn't THINK I was giving off any vibes, but the amount of wool left lying on the ground said otherwise. Sometimes you just have to know when to walk away and come back another day. Today was one of those days.
We had a great walk though! Here are a few photos. By the way, did I mention how much the Noodlhead LOVES him some fowl? The other day I wasn't paying him much attention and when I turned around to see what he was up to he'd gathered up all of Julie's chickens and was bringing them to me. Does it matter to him that they don't really flock? Of course not. He will happily bring them one by one, if he has to.
Seriously, Nick. One by one? Weirdo.
After all of that, Julie, Mary & I went up to the Backyard Grill and had all you can eat crablegs. I belive a hand-truck was practically in order to get me back out to the truck.
Pip says hi!
I call this one "Brothers". Awwww.
Coming back up the ridge:
And lastly this one isn't quite in focus, but I swear this dog is practically the cutest thing ever. The only thing cuter is when he runs. Seriously. He gets this floofy flying hair look and I just wanna squishy him.
That's all for now. I'm still working on moving shots with this new to me camera. Most of the ones I got today were *really* bad. But practicing perfect makes perfect. That one is for my old Gymnastics coach, Rob Travers. ;)
