"I'll meet you behind the barn with two buckets of grain after the trial..."

OK, so it's been forever since I posted, because I didn't think anyone was reading...but I was informed by Ellie that this was incorrect, and so I am going to get my act together and actually post something here now and again.

It's 9am and I have a herding trial to go to today...but thanks to Mother Nature, the trial was pushed back to 12pm, so I got a wonderful opportunity to sleep in. Tori and I will be competing in Started A Course, more about that after the trial, mostly because I have no clue how she will do.

My plan is to ignore my dog as much as possible and focus on the sheep, and just. keep. walking. I've been contemplating how I could bribe the sheep to just stay with me no matter what that black and white blur is doing out there. I know where their feed shed is and they know it (I just spent a week taking care of them while Val was in Cancun!) "If you guys just stick with me, I'll meet you behind the barn with two buckets of grain after the trial...yes, I know the black and white thing is nuts, just ignore her"

We are having a barbecue tonight, hopefully with lots of friends, lots of dogs, lots of food and lots of can always ease the pain....
