Power and Ducks

We got power back on Monday at 5:30 pm. Hooray! We spent an extra night at my in-law's because the house was so cold. Last night I had to empty out my fridge and freezer of all the food that had spoiled. Very sad waste.

Saturday Irie has her first herding "lesson" - stock exposure might be more accurate. She will be introduced to ducks. I am very excited. I spoke to Diane and she recommends a lesson a month for the first 6 months to a year to maintain exposure if you plan on being serious about herding. We will have to see if Irie would like to be serious about herding!! Either way I am excited to see what she thinks.

I have just found your blog and though I haven't had a full chance to explore previous posts I look forward to doing just that.

When you wrote about herding I perked up. I have a little Sheltie pup and though I have never ever done herding I am curious about it. I want to learn what it takes to do and how to learn it.

Ellen, try and find someone in your area to start lessons and exposing your puppy to stock. My older corgi, Bug, was introduced to sheep at 2 yo and it took him a while to turn on. Good luck with your pup - I'll have to go check out your blog!

Glad you got your power back! Hope you feel 'back to normal' soon.
