Nan's day off so Tess had to fill in

So Nan had a day off from blogging duties. I traded Tess for Nan the last two nights. Tomorrow Nan will be back. I think Tess is jealous that Nan has been getting extra attention, the midnight forays and so forth.

In addition, Tess has been more than helpful that last two days. I wanted to work Nan and I was in the field so I called her to the gate. Tess also came and saw that I needed help. She gave Nan the *evil eye* and Nan left and went in the barn. I called Tess and she leaped over the gate to help. She is the only dog that is allowed to leap over the gate. She is pretty spry for a ten year old dog.

Here is Tess bringing the sheep. I worked some dogs yesterday and she was the backup lesson dog. She loves being a back up dog!! She is a great backup dog and gets any runaway sheep as well as holding them so I can work a pup close at hand. Here she is holding them off the escape route to the barn.

Later, we all got to relax. Jeff and Nan went to sleep and I do my blog then.

Each night as I do the blog, the Blogging Assistant gets a treat. Peanut butter stuffed in a bone was the special tonight.
A long tongue goes a long way in digging out the peanut butter.

Ok, time to get serious. Use the paws to hold the bone up so she can dig the last bit out.
