Pictures from my Barkday and my busy weekend activities..

I realized I hadn't blogged since my Barkday so I'll start there!
I had a GREAT Barkday!

I wish mom had been able to spend it with me..but I had the next best thing-my petsitter who showered me with gifts! She made a card for mom and I and took lots of pictures of me with my gifts! I got a pink t-shirt, doesn't it look cute on me? I also got a squeaky toy barkday cake, which Blossom wanted to play with as well! Then yummy doggie bakery cookies and yummy freeze-dried meat treats!

I LOVE the bakery cookies! I gobble them right up! Mom got to see all my barkday gifts when she got home from work!

On friday mom went to work real late, 1:30pm, so she took me for a run and then I got to go in the car with her to work! We stopped right before she got to paramount and I got a BIG surprise-my Grandpa was there!! I was going to doggie daycare with Grandpa for the night! I stayed the night with Grandpa, he hand fed me yummy food, and then on saturday morning we drove down to mom's house! (I think mom missed me ALOT!)

Today, mom and I drove up to Phelan to herd sheep! We worked on the Intermediate Course A course....our first try was a disaster but mom and I started to get the hang of it...I was driving the sheep while mom was standing at the handlers post. It's a big difference for us-a big jump from Started but we ended on a decent note and Mom and I are feeling a little better about the Intermediate level. We've entered the Australian Cattle Dog Club of Greater Los Angeles herding trials on April 18-19 so we only have another weekend to work on everything!!!

Now we're home and I think we're going out to get some dinner for me for the week! I hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Thank you so much for the herding information. Mom was just looking at it and checking out the locations. There's a couple beginner clinics this month in CT and NH-just need to see how far.

I LOVE your barkday cake toy and t-shirt. It sounds like you had a great day and mom sure takes good care of you. Good luck next weekend. I know you will do great.

Thanks again and sloppie kisses.

Oh what a wonderful Barkday you had. Now we wouldn't recommend you wear that shirt herding. You might ruin our heeler image!!
Norwood told us that your mom sent him some stuff about herding. We sure hope he can join in the fun. Dad and Gus are herding tame sheep today can't wait till they get home and tell us how it went...

Dad said I did really well herding those new sheep. she were fetching sheep. Dad said if he wasn't careful they would run him right over.. I made dad proud holding them while dad opened the gate and I did my walkup and brought them out..
