Running With The Big Dogs

June is only six months old but she worked sheep at her first trial today! No, she wasn't actually competing at the trial, she got to help Scott with the half time demo. We were at the Meeker Classic sheepdog trials this week in Meeker, Colorado. It's a huge trial with lots of spectators. The organizers asked Scott if he would do a demonstration on how to train a sheepdog.
He picked June and her father Don to help him.
First Daddy Don went out and showed June how to do it. Before her turn, he sat next to her and gave her advice while they both watched another dog try it. Then it was June's turn.
At first she wasn't sure what she should do, but then! then! it came to her! She was working sheep! They obeyed her every command!
Move, sheep, move!
Once she had to stop and catch her breath,but real working dogs can't stop for long. They have a job to do. Good girl, June. You're a big girl now.

Aww...I'll have to tell Crue all about his sister! She looks quite a bit like him, but his ears don't stand up. I wish we had some sheep nearby to try him on. good going June!

I bet the crowd loved it. Scott would do a good job explaining things and June probably won a lot of hearts!
PS I am sorry, I think I accidentally deleted a comment the other day. It WAS complimentary, LOL, I have no idea what I did.
