Still king

Hey every pup,

Thanks for the well wishes on my work at the trial. Sorry, I don't have any pictures to show of my fine work. One of the people was scribing for the judge (writing down the scores) and the other one was helping me look good, so they couldn't snap any pictures.

I didn't win the trial, but I can say that I am still king of the sheep--at least compared to the other pups in my pack. The sheep bow to my great presence; listen when I give a nudge; let me chase them if I get that bug (which happens sometimes--you just can't always control it). My person gave a wordy description of it all on a discussion board. I recognize some of the words she used, like "come bye" and "away", but all that other stuff she wrote about seems like gibberish, so I'll leave you to decipher it if you want to.

I got kinda nervous because my person was a little jumpy. Don't know why, it's not like it was something we'd never done before. Oh, wait, I guess it kind of was. But it didn't seem that different to me.

Anyway, I'm ready to do it again anytime. Hey, wait, I heard there might be some action this week-end. I wonder if I'll get called to the plate.

You're a winnner in my eyes, I would never be able to herd any sheep!

Hey Pipps,

Cooools! My dad and I use to watch One Man and His Dog on the BBC. It was sooo neatos! Then the dummies took it off. Ah... those were the days. Reeeallys good telly.

Talkin' to the sheeps and stuffs. That must be a lot of funs. I get to look at goats every day on our walks. I don't talk to them but I love how they smells. My friend, Tule, likes to talk to them but when she does they all run back to the barn.

Remembers, it's not if you win or lose but how you play the game. (Try tellin' THAT to my dad.) If you had funs, then it's COOOOLS!

Good lucks next time!

I'm with Oscar. I'd never be able to herd sheep. In fact, they would scare me.

Those people are always nervous about something or other. They should learn to take their cue from the dogs. We're always cool.

Excellent -- show the sheep who's boss. And then we will teach the humans the same lesson.

Ricky Pepper said...

Good Job! I think I would just bark at sheep and not do very well at herding them at all.


Lizzy said...

I'm sure you did great. :) Maybe I should take up sheep herding.... Ha, the sheep wouldn't even notice me though, for I look just like one when my fur is long.

I don't know how anyone could think you are anything short of perfection for EVERYTHING you do. And I'm not just saying that because I find you so handsome.
