|Coal watching Angus working the sheep (see album link below)|
My camera has been gathering mothballs for months. But, last weekend I got it out and took some photos of Angus working with some ewes and older lambs that belong to a friend. Tom is planning to give Angus a go in Nursery this spring/summer. Angus is looking good! Here is a link to a Picasa album with all of the pics that I took and posted. Oh yeah and there are a couple of gratuitous pictures of Coal in the album ...I really need to get new photos of the other boys also!

Ryme is also showing some good progress: I am holding my breath! In the last week or two I have been letting him work sheep just a tiny bit, doing some little chore or another. Just doing some driving, or a small gather of sheep that already want to come in, or marching around the very slow ewes and lambs who see no reason to move. In the past couple of days I have also let Ryme run off leash a bit more. Fingers crossed! So far, he looks good with absolutely no lameness. He has put on weight though in this layoff, despite me cutting back on his food. It will take a while to get him back in condition once he is proclaimed ready to really work. I am hopeful though. I still plan to have him xrayed when finances allow. But it would be really nice to have my dog back.
In other news, Mr Chewy has requested that I review his website. This might be fun. I hope I can do some sort of giveaway out of it as a result. Since my dogs mostly eat raw I am not as familiar with all the brands and prices that are out there. We do use some canned food and of course treats and biscuits are never turned away! Mr Chewy also carries our emergency food, Honest Kitchen dehydrated, so I can check their prices and service on that. We have a local shop right around the corner where I can buy "HK" but I know that isn't true for a lot of folks. If you have several dogs and don't want to lug sacks of dog food I think this ordering with free shipping might make a whole lot of sense. Stay tuned and have a great rest of the weekend!
