Taff

I recently got a new dog. His name is Taff. He used to be called Rags. I got him from Lisa Webb. His mama is my Nan! His sire is Ralph Pulfer's Tweed. He is a huge, big boned tri male. He just turned four. Scott put a quick tuneup on him before I got him. He said he thought he would suit me.

I guess Scott knows me all too well. Why, you ask?

Taff is like Nan, except in a male version. Off stock, he talks like her, dances like her and has a lot of the same mannerisms. He is devoted to me like Nan.

I worked him for the first time this weekend. Sue, Goerge, Bonnie, Janet, Ben and Tea all  came to work sheep. We had a great time. I'll post some pixs of them in a later blog. I just got Taff on Monday and we spent the week just bonding. He really likes beef jerky. His mother adores beef jerky too!!

Thanks to Bonnie Block for taking the photos for me. If you want a brillant photographer, get in touch with her.

I decided to work him for the first time in a huge field with a bunch of people watching. Gee, what a brillant idea!! What if I couldn't stop him? What if things went wrong?

I didn't have to worry. He stopped at the top on a dime. He took my whistles (and I am not sure I have them correct) and verbal commands. He is  fast like Nan.


He is very fast so I have to be quick with my commands. A lot of his moves are like Nan.

On the fetch.

Driving.

End of the short and up close work. I am very happy with him. He called off and stayed with me. He is a very happy dog and I thank Lisa for sending him to me. He is one nice dog. I will be running him in PN this year.
