Hug A Sheep Day 2012!

Today is the THIRD annual Hug A Sheep Day!  Really!  Join the fun and head over to the official blog and tell everyone how you participated.
It's a real holiday.
Yes it is.
They even did a story on it on
In Canada, we even take a Post Office and school holiday.
It always falls on a Saturday and we never go to school or get mail on a Saturday but still...

I celebrated the inaugural year, and again last year.
It's always difficult because our sheep are still not so sure about this holiday.
Fortunately, this year, we had some late comers to the farm and they were just the right size.
So - "Rabbit" got a hug!
As always, hug a sheep day falls on the same day as Hug A Guardian Dog Day,
And I also can't forget to hug the border collie who helped me catch the sheep on this great holiday.
Aackkk!  Mom!  The sheep are watching!  They are going to make fun of me!

I love this post! And who is that Border Collie? Does it ever look like my Ben! Love the name Rabbit for the lamb, very cute.

Since most of your pictures are taken by you...who is behind the camera for hug a sheep/LGD/Border Collie helper day??? I'm not sold on hugging a sheep yet.....instead I took your lead and hugged all my border collies today.
