Herding and ice cream and running oh my!
Mom and I went for our herding training today at noon-it was pretty hot! Iw as in charge of swapping out the sheep today! I took the sheep that had been working during the morning and put them in the pen, then I took the sheep, that were in the goat pen, and moved them into the open field and then I got to work with them! My outruns look good and mom and I are beginning to work on driving!! I was hot after working so I jumped into the water pool, and mom soaked me with a hose! Of course after that I had to roll in the dirt!! It was great fun!
While we were driving home, mom decided we needed a special treat since it was hot! We stopped by Port Town gelato and she and I got an ice cream! The owner is a dog person-she used to have 16 acres of land and was a boxer breeder but now she's just a dog lover! Port Town Gelato has a dog water bowl outside and thought it was wonderful that mom was getting me an ice cream! She softened it up and tried to take the chill out of it and put it in a special dish just for me!! Mom and I sat outside and ate our ice cream! What a special treat!!
We came home and took a nap! It was hot! When mom woke up, she said we were going for a run! The sun was setting and it was cool and a bit windy. I was wondering where we'd go for a run...I hoped it would be the bunny place and I was right! We went for a 5 mile bunny run! It was the perfect bunny hour-sunset and I saw lots of bunnies and lots of other dogs out for runs with their mommies!
I had a wonderful sunday with my mom!
