Gus and Olive start sheep camp again today at Cherry Hill Training Center. When Jeff fed Gus his breakfast I heard him pronounce to Gus “Eat up you, got to perform well today!” Without even thinking I walked into the room and spoke up for Gus “Dad I don’t perform sheep herding, it’s a way of life.” After Gus and I straightened out Jeff’s line of thought I realized he didn’t say anything to Olive. I have decided this means one of two things; 1 Jeff has lost all hope that Olive will be useful for anything but a couch dog. 2 Olive is so amazing that she doesn’t need any encouragement or pep talks. I can’t wait to see Olive and Gus work after all winter off for Gus and Olive’s first real herding lessons. I will be sure to give you all an update after camp.
