Is if a sheep joins you :-D.
Tilly, Hank, Kate, Comby and I started back to the right side of the ponds yesterday. As we shooshed through the snow along the creek I heard a "galump galump galump" and Liddy came racing past, bouncing through snow drifts, kicking up her heels, chasing the dogs.
She hasn't come on a walk since she was a little lamb living in the house. I guess she was tired of being cooped up at the barn with the old fogeys. Note, they all could have come along on our walk, but the ambition levels up there when everything's snow covered and I'm bringing them breakfast in bed...not so grate akshully ;-).
They all played around the trees at the end of the arena for awhile and Liddy snuffled down through the snow and found a little grass to pick around on. Comby and I brushed off a spot and sat down in the sun and we all just enjoyed hanging out on a nice afternoon. We'll make it back to the ponds another day.
Here are some iPhone pics. My battery died before I could get any video. I momentarily regretted not having my big girl camera, but in the end was glad I didn't. I could never have captured pictures that were as fun as being there in real life.

I've had a couple questions about Hank and about livestock guardian dogs in general. I have some beautiful Hank pics to share tomorrow and I'd be happy to try to answer any questions you might have. I am Not An Expert by any means, but I can share our experiences and some good resources.
If you have a question(s), leave them in the comments or drop me an email and I'll do my best!
