New tricks

Apparently there’s a saying about dogs and new tricks, but it doesn’t yet apply to me 🙂

Yesterday, at sheepdog training school, Mum turned her back on me and walked away from me and the sheep. I had to steer them all by myself, keeping them behind Mum as she marched off down the field, turning this way and that. Everyone was impressed, not least Mum, who couldn’t help peeping over her shoulder to make sure I was still there!

Today, I learned two new tricks. The first was to open the door from the tricky side. I’m right-pawed, you see, so it’s easy from inside, but nearly impossible from outside. I’d heard Dad come home and I really, really wanted to come in and see him, so I quickly taught myself how to do it 😀

Then, Mum showed me how to close the door behind me 😀

Spike’s very wise, but I haven’t seen him learn any new tricks lately.
