Sturdy shoes? Do you mean like a work boot....This is just too exciting...I usually go down 10 from Hopewell to Smithfield. Maybe we could meet and travel together....Would love to meet with you before then, so if you have time some Sunday, we could meet you and go for a walk, or you and I could just have a cup of java somewhere.....Do you like Starbucks? I will not be available for the sheep herding until 13th...
Nancy, I would love to go walkies with you and the corgi crew....just let me know when you would like to do that.....Also, when the weather is better, I would be interested in the sheep herding....Sammy and Merry would love the chase, I know.....it would be interesting to see if they can be trained to herd instead of just run after the sheep....they are both very well behaved....What do lessons cost? Are they weekly session and what time of day are they held? I can hardly wait to tell Sam and Merry that we might have some new adventures.....Marion
Hi Nancy: Love the pictures on your site....where do you do the sheep herding...that is something I have always thought would be fund to experiment with....Thanks for the information on Waller Mill Park....I only was there one time.....and they told me then that I would need a vacination record...I was not given any information other than that. I do love the York River Park...and used to frequent it often, but since I have moved a little further away I do not get there much anymore....but, I would love to do a Corgi get together sometime, as Sadie suggested.
awh thank you. i got the sweater from Petco's . it looks so funny & cute on Lobo=]
your corgis are soooooo cute- you got a fluffy also. awh so adorable
best lucks for linus,bear & tasha. greetings from Lobo & Arlyn. take care you all. hugs
Sylvia: Your page and photographs are fabulous! I am envious of the natural beauty and that you are involved in such good activities. Timmy is lovely too. I guess the tidewater of Virginia has it's own beauty; however, the gutsy scale of nature on the Pacific coast is wonderous. My Tasha was with Therapy Dogs International; however, I am a chef (in a private healthcare facility) and my profession would not permit me to satisfy the time commitment. We are professional dabblers - obedience, agility, herding (our fave!), walking Colonial Williamsburg, the bike trails at Freedom Park, and now, the 47 miles one way for flyball. It's not only time, it's tuitions, travel and my Honda isn't always the best way to go with three corgis.
Anyway, a side note from Friday evening - the dogs are encouraged to communicate and it happens that these trained dogs talk as a team throughout the heats. This is up Tasha's alley - the sport that invites her to be as chatty as she'd ever wish!! Herding group dogs would bark at every hurdle - maybe just a soft woof or a jubilant cry but the dogs were very riotous. I spent years with the Timber Ridge Bassets and they also communicated as a pack the moment the Master brought them out of the trailer.
All the best, from James City County, VA on a rainy, grey Sunday morning (I'm weaving a basket today and everyone will just have to camp out for a while!),
Nancy, I wish you good fun at the flyball classes. It looked like organized chaos. The dogs certainly have fun. I'd be interested in pursuing flyball, but Timmy has bad hips and we're hundreds of miles from any other teams. Keep us posted as to how your crew likes it.
Just as a side note, Timmy's registered name with AKC is Humboldt's Gold Triple T. My last name starts with a T and his name is Timmy, so during his youth and adventures he always had a middle name such as "tuna, torpedo, tornado, tank, etc." Love your pictures,and the beautiful setting.
