its all about the dogs and the gardens

The first appreciable harvest of the summer: about 15 small berries and 4stalks of rhubarb. Those strawberries are the best I have ever had. They are very juicy and sweet and ripe. I should make a personal strawberry rhubarb pie, but I won't.

Walking the sheep around with Epic. We all went down to the big field this afternoon because I forgot to take any pictures when we were working up by the barn. This was a pretty big step for Epic and he definitely felt the pressure, but he handled it well, if not a little too pushy with the sheep.

Here is Epic trying to cram the sheep up my bum. I was getting a little bit frustrated with him at this point.

Epic is looking proud of himself.

This is Epic's dad. He is looking a little sleepy today.

He perked up when the sheep started running around.

Here are Epic's first attempts on the chute. He is hanging up there a little bit, but I am glad he is at least jumping on and off confidently. He is definitely getting more and more excited about getting the ball and tugging on little stuffed animals.

Scott looks drunk. And, this pic looks like it was taken post-roll-in-horse-dung-pile. I love my Scotty Biscotti dog.
