No hiking occurred today but check out our stories for some agility progress 😍 It's not super cold here but just cold enough that I hate it 😂 .
And! I have so mannnny fall photos I have yet to share so enjoy! She seems so little here even though it was only two months ago 😭
Hello, my name is Cash and today I learned why everyone screams “Leave Dusty alone!” whenever I go near him.
Like a true toddler, Cash just had to see if the stove was hot for himself and he took a full Dusty bucking bronco kick to the face as a result. It’s a miracle he didn’t lose any teeth or break something. For the rest of today’s training session he wasn’t really up for nipping any heels and he kept questioning himself. So, I took him off the cattle and we messed with the goats for a little bit to end his session on a confident note.
That’s all it really comes down to. Confidence. Every single one of these dogs has the physical and mental ability to be the meanest, baddest herding dog on the planet. The only difference among them is how they respond to getting absolutely bashed in the face. I certainly don’t blame them for not wanting to put their teeth on the back of a cow’s heel ever again. I’ve been nailed in the leg a few times and mowed down by an angry mother once.
I guess the good ones are just too busy thinking about the next bite to let the sting of the last kick linger long enough to let them change their mind and boy ain’t there a good lesson for all of us in that.
Giving a perspective of scale, my A2 colour pencil portrait of Miki and Race! I have loved every second of this portrait. The rock behind them was my greatest challenge since I had never done it before and I didn't want there to be too much detail. I wanted to make sure the focus was on the dogs and the lighting of the portrait was very important to keep it strong. Let me know what you think! 🎨 💗 🐾 🐶
