Made it back safely from training for work. While I was gone, Glenn and Minnie got to "play" with ducks for the first time. I hear she has great instinct when it comes to herding. The duck's owner, who competes in herding, even commented on her instinct. Unfortunately no pics where taken. :( On the upside Minne has been invited back so I'll be sure there are pictures next time.
Minnie I have a big week or so coming up. I'm going to do a drop in class on Wed and take a crash course in conformation. Then on Friday we are taking a day road trip to Eugene to see Garrett (her breeder) who will be there for a sheepy show/seminar. On Sunday we are doing our first dog show. I'm calling it a fun show since its our first and not sanctioned as far as I can tell. It's put on by a local Bulldog Club and has an All Breed Conformation Match and Sub/Novice Obedience/Rally Match. We are going to do 6-9 month conformation (hence us taking a crash course in conformation) and I figure we'll also do Obedience and Rally for the heck of it. I don't expect to place but I figure it'll be a good experience for her. I have recruited Robert, my fiancee, to play photographer, so I will have pictures to post.
That's all for now...
Have a great time -- give Garrett a hug for those of us missing him.ReplyDelete
