Herding Dog Competition

These dogs were great fun to watch. It was amazing how they led these sheep through the difficult patterns and into the pen. Mostly Border Collies and Australian Kelpies were competing while we were there. We couldn’t wait to come home to watch our own Australian Shepherd Princess play with her new babies! Priceless…..

This is becoming a daily ritual and they never seem to get tired of  racing around the yard. It might be a rude awakening one of these days,  when the grill is hot!!!

The Awesome Aussie and the Persistent Pom

 

Hello, Gorgeous!!!!!

Hello, Gorgeous!!!!!

We owe the wonderful blessing of owning this awesome Australian Shepherd to our sister, Moye and I just found out a LOT about the Pomeranian breed in a great magazine that Moye gave us. It reads that the Pomeranian breed was originally bred as a sled dog and they weighed 30 pounds and up. Well, Okie our little 10 pound Pomeranian  is not hindered by his bred down mini size. He knows when the alarm goes off in the form of a sharp, ear piercing bark that there is a sheep or goat in the yard. It is such a game for this one particular little pygmy goat…..she LOVES teasing them and they actually play together until Sky and Okie team up and decide that the game is over…..The goat has gotta go!!!!!!

 

Team work!!!!
