Tess and Gretta keeping a watchful
Chip and Sugar "all blanketed
up" TRYING to stay clean for halter!
I went to a horse show close to Bozeman - which is about 100 miles away.
It was a cold rainy weekend but the show went very well - I showed Chip
and Sugar, Sugar is my 3-year-old mare that has only had about 45 rides
on her. This was her first "real" show under saddle and she did
fabulous - winning halter and getting a 2nd and 3rd in the western pleasure
classes which were huge - around 15 horses! Not a bad way to start her
show career! Chip also did very well winning many of her classes!
-----I went to
the show with Tess and Gretta - two of my personal dogs. They were very
good! We went for walks in the evening and they slept loose in the trailer
with me (my new 4 horse trailer with Living Quarters - the heat was MUCH
appreciated as it was very cold outside!). I made the table into a bed
and they both slept on there!
night I was there, some people next to me pulled up late - around 11:00.
I was asleep but both dogs barked when they pulled up so I woke up and
told them to be quiet and they were for a few minutes. But then the people
were right outside my door making noise - talking and moving stuff around
and both of the dogs just growled, every now and then letting out a low
bark - warning STAY AWAY from our person! I told them quiet several times
but they wouldn't be so I got out of bed - pretended to look out the window
and told them it was OK. I crawled back into bed and after that they were
both quiet for the rest of the night. They just wanted me to actually get
out of bed and show them that I really was paying attention to the "problem
them are very friendly dogs and I would totally trust them - to see them
meet people and hang out at the show you wouldn't think of them as protection
dogs at all - but they just proved that if they are needed they are 100%
protection. Which is the way our dogs are - but it's always fun to see
them do it.
the show, the second morning the alarm went off and being sort of lazy
and tired I hit snooze (just once - give me a break!!). But Tess got very
upset about me not getting right up after the alarm went off because I
always do and she jumped up onto my bed - my bed is in the gooseneck part
of the trailer so it's pretty high up. She started whining, I just laid
there and didn't look at her or say anything to see what she would do.
She whined for a bit then took her nose and pushed it under my hand and
flipped my hand up. She did this several times and kept whining. It was
so cute, I couldn't act asleep anymore. So I praised her and got up out
of bed. I think because I didn't get up she was worried something was wrong!!
They are so smart!
some pictures from the show. They were taken EARLY in the morning so it
was kind of dark but I was out feeding the horses and the dogs were keeping
a watchful eye.
