|"When I was 9 months old my Mom and Dad took me to Connecticut to meet some sheep. At first
I wasn't too impressed - they were very standoffish. Then I discovered that I could make them
do whatever I wanted. For that I got a Herding Instinct Cerificate!"

|"I want to please my Mom and Dad very much but being good in obedience is expecting too much.
The next 3 pictures are frames from a video tape. My Dad said it's a good thing we're not
showing the video or you would fall out of your chair laughing."
|"When heeling, I'm suppose to keep my nose even
with my Mom's knee, but I'd rather heel behind her
in case she runs into the ring gate."
|"I was heeling off lead real good until I smelled
something real good."
|"I had previously earned 2 legs and was 30 seconds
from earning my CD title when I decided to get up
from the long down and say "Hi" to my Mom. She was
NOT happy to see me!"
|"This was the happiest day of my Mom's life - the
day I earned my CD title. A day my Mom and Dad
wondered was ever going to happen. But, I knew it
would. I just needed to wait for the right moment."
