I had a nice day. I had prospective puppy people come from the Bay area to meet me and my dogs. Part of what that meant is I cleaned my house, picked up PILES of icky kibble doo doo on the grass & property and cleaned all the collies. SeaB had a bath in the house and a blow dry with my hairdryer. Nice, nice family and I think had I said "yes" they would have taken Cardiff home. Squishy was all over them like I've never seen him before. Maybe he's grown up a bit and they laughed (as did T) at his name but he responds to it fast and happy. Soleil is looking so pregnant & sweet. But she's just a big muffin anyway. Licky Licky was seriously licky. Sage had a serious brain fart when I asked her a very simple question to "down" in front of them. Like she'd never heard it before. Then we tried "sit" and she still had amnesia. We fixed it with a couple of treats but it just goes to show just when you think your competition collie knows something really well, bring in new & fun people and they can forget everything you thought they knew.
Now I'm kinda done for the evening. Gotta feed animals and make dinner and arrange my tracking stuff. Our season, I think has officially started. I am so excited!
