Into the Brambles

I saw some other dogs on the trail, so I went into my “little dog” stance. Mom says I’m herding, but I don’t know anything about that. We don’t live on a ranch or anything, but I think I came from one! Does that count?

Mom told me there are places where I can go learn about it. There are sheep there too. I’ve never met a sheep….I wonder if they like to run and play too? Or would I have to be the boss and make them behave? I think I’ll get on the internet and check this out when we get home. Sounds like fun!!

Hey, Toby!  Come help me do some more sniffing! We might be on to something here.

I ended up in the middle of a bunch of brambles. They really are blackberry bushes, but they’re all over the place. Mom says they’re invasive. I remember those black things on them last summer. Hu-mans actually eat them! Not me. I like the stuff lying around out here, but Mom won’t let me eat that either.

Then we got back to business.

Mom said her boots were making a sucking sound. Not me! The more mud the better, I say!

Can you see that ice there? I had fun playing with it. It was just like a rock, but tasted a little like water.

Water? Did you say water? That’s even better than mud puddles. Where is it? Let’s hurry, Mom. Get the lead out…..

  1. Sage, what is it with dogs?? I have only met one dog that didn’t like mud !!!
    His name was Joker and he lived with me for 7 years!!! It was wonderful!!
    WE would walk and he would walk around around the mud!!

  2. Vof Sage! You seem to have fun with mud! About sheeps I can tell you that I play with my neighbour sheeps and it’s so much fun. There is a fence between us, but we don’t mind and we run together up and down and we smell each others noses! I love sheeps!


  3. Oh, gurlfurrend, I has to tell you, I woz at camp a few years ago and I did sheep herding. OMD, it woz a HOOT! I runned like the wind and rounded those sheeps up and got them all running togedder in the same direkshun. The instruktor sayed I woz a natural and I woz rilly herding, not chasing to put the bitey on them! But then I woz limping the next day coz I done pulled a muscle so I woz not allowed to herd sheeps any more the rest of the camp. Boo. But I highly recommend it. So much funs! Just don’t overdo it your furst time out – that be my woofs of wisdom.


    • It is! It’s a great place for dogs–lots of trails, rivers, and, at this time of year, mud. We go there frequently as it’s one of the few places where Sage can be off-leash and not get into trouble (like run into a street in one of her “it’s fun to be free” moments).
