I really really love our Aussie Club
Well Friday was the big day
We attended a herding clinic with Dawna Sims - put on by my local Aussie Club.
I have never had a better time. Kati
and I were the only non-aussie's and boy did we show them how a German Shepherd herds.
did just fantastic. It was only her 2nd time in with sheep, it took her all but 1 minute to figure it out. I could actually turn my back and have her walk the sheep behind me. When I turned around, the sheep stopped and she stopped at the correct distance even.
Dawna could not get over the natural talent of Kati
. She said Kati
is the best green GSD she has ever seen. I can only describe it as totally peaceful, me walking, the sheep following with Kati
bring up the rear. None of that frentic Border Collie or Aussie circle.
I see serious sheepherding - or should I say Tending - in our future
Oh - by the way - Cinder, my Aussie/Kelpie mix earned her CD on Sunday at the show
It was truly an amazing weekend for the pack
