Well, after going down in flames with my Open dogs on their second runs, it was up to the pipsqueak to try to save the family honor. What I said to Rainey was "bring the sheep to my feet for a treat"......I am sure she heard "bring the sheep fast as hell to my feet".
She got a good feel for the lambs and brought them nice down the lane.
Really held the pressure.
The lambs thought they were going to bolt to the exhaust but she had their number.
Look a rare photo of her with BOTH EARS up!!
She lost two for her outrun, one for her lift, four for her fetch. I was on Cloud Nine. And I didn't drink any Mike's Hard Lemonade!
She actually began to lean on them for the drive.
The lambs said "no way" to the pen. Rainey was telling them "yes, pen"
Rainey going after the wayward lamb.
Happy dog. I was very pleased with her attitude, try and willingness to be a partner.
