In a previous posting, where we talked about a very cold and snowy walk with Joni, our friend Ursula asked to see a photograph of how she looked at the end of her walk. We were out for 2 hours and the wind was blowing the snow swirling around the fields. Joni never seemed to mind as long as we kept throwing her toy.

So here she is, Ursula waiting for you to throw her a blue ball! You can bring Mira along with you, though she might find it a bit cold!

Joni’s First Experience of Sheep Herding

She took to it like a … border collie to sheep herding! Covered in mud at the end of the afternoon, she slept in the car on the way home and was tired for almost 2 days afterwards. Tired, but so happy.

A friend of her breeder’s helped us to get her into it and supplied the expertise and the sheep. She said that Joni has a great natural ability.

Joni, Intrigued by the Click of the Shutter

I was taking photographs of the Forget Me Nots, when Joni wanted to know what I was doing. It was the click of the shutter that got that expression. Joni is 5.5 months old.

Wot? No Frisbee?

Joni's First Frisbee Lesson

It took Joni about 3 minutes to learn how to play Frisbee. I wish it took me as short a time to learn critical skills like this.

Joni enjoying her first winter

Joni loves the snow and, at the moment after all of our snowfalls this winter,when she runs through some areas of the garden the snow is well over her head. Under the trees it is more sheltered and she comes up for breath. Her puppy hood is going so fast, she will soon be grown, so we have to make the most of this time.
