Labor Day weekend we did something I've wanted to do since I've moved to Utah, we went to the National Sheepdog Trials in Midway. I thought it was interesting at least. The dogs were amazing. It was just like in the movie "Babe", the dog goes out this huge distance, a few acres away, and brings back the sheep, through gates, even seperates them into two groups. All the while the handler has to stand within a five foot radius of a pole at the beginning of the course. It was crazy! We also snuck Lady in. We were staying that night in Park City with Matt and Aubreigh, so we couldn't leave Lady. I happened upon a free enterance ticket from an older couple who was leaving, and we saw that "spectator dogs" were not allowed in, but we couldn't just leave her in the car. Well, I was going to just try to pretend like I knew what I was doing, and see if I could just walk in. If I could get in, then Nathan would buy a ticket, if not, then no money was lost. I gave my ticket, and started in, when one of the ticket takers asked "are you participating?", before I could respond, the other ticket taker said "duh, she has a border collie". So I just walked on in. It was neat to see, but I'm glad we only had to pay for one ticket. Then we walked around Swiss Days later that day.
including Swiss Tacos? That one I think they just made up.
