193/365 – Scottish views

So last weekend we went to a sheepdog trial. My parents’ dog, Nell, had quite a few relatives competing, so it was interesting to watch (and of course, we knew people there, including Nell’s breeder, Ian).

    Look at Fly do her thing. Cool 😀
    Love the views and poor Nell all tuckered out.

      Fly’s a speedy girl and such a softie. I got lots of Fly cuddles afterwards (so many I forgot to take any close-up photos of her!). There were threats/promises of her spending her retirement with me. 😀

      She’s got two dodgy legs, too. One because she got run over by Ian (accidentally, of course!) a couple of years ago and had to have surgery on it. The other is a cruciate ligament problem. But even with those dodgy legs, she’s fast – as long as she doesn’t work for too long, she’s okay. 🙂 (She won the confined group, which is for the local dogs.)

    I’ve never seen one of these events in person, although I’ve seen some on television. What a treat!

    Wonderful countryside! And how exciting for Nell to encounter her extended family. No wonder she was all tired out. Every time I hear about sheepdog trials, I expect a pig to appear… now why is that I wonder?? ( 😉 )
