They grow up so fast . . .

Lily has another herding clinic with Patrick Shannahan this week. Today I took Trace along with her JUST FOR SOCIALIZATION!

When Lily wasn't working Trace came out to watch the other dogs work. (as if he needed any help feeding his obsession.) This afternoon Patrick worked puppies.

 "HEY! I'm a puppy!"

And as I watched him staring through the bars at puppies his age playing with sheep, I decided that maybe, just maybe, I could sacrifice one of Lily's spots tomorrow to let Trace work for the very first time in his little life.  (Since Patrick will be at the helm, I can't screw him up!) 

It should be an exciting day. . .

Yippee for Trace! I think he has already proven his ability to herd sheep ... he just hasn't proven his ability to listen to instructions while doing it ...

No kidding! He is FINALLY beginning to listen a little and yield nicely to pressure. In fact, despite the stuff I've thrown at him for chasing cats and chickens, when Patrick threw a stick at him for chasing sheep, he got offended. He's not ready for heavy work, but is definitely ready to get started with light "once a week" work.
