Meet Rascal

Rascal is my five month old red tri Australian Shepherd. I am working on training him in obedience and in November 2009 I will hopefully start on agility. Rascal loves to spend time with me or play with his best friend Ruby (Border Collie). Rascal's job has become herding. His job is to herd Clara and Annie (Alpine goats) to the milking stand and his reward is, well, some milk.

Rascal loves to be outside with the wind blowing the leaves for him to chase and he loves to play frisbee. I have such high hopes, but I know he can go higher than my hopes and succeed.

Rascal has taught me a lot in only two months. I am sure he will be teaching a lot more in the years to come.

I started this blog to chronicle my training of Rascal in herding, agility, and other skills.

Nice job with the blog. I esp liked the Gabby tribute. :') Thanks for all your kind words and encouragement. Are you coming to watch Nationals?

Rascal's Trainer said...

To Ruby:

Yes. My first time and I am hoping that Rascal will be there one day.

As for the kind words and encouragement; Your Welcome.
