Over the Easter break we headed off to spend some time with my parents, and part of our visit included a day trip to the Victorian Utility Sheep Dog Trials.
Mum had forewarned me that the set up was not exactly like that of the sheep dog trials in Babe, but a bit more rustic!
There were lots of lovely (and very active!) dogs there, including a number who look like Pepsi, the much-loved constant companion of Miss G as seen below.
|Getting to know the real live 'Pepsi'|
|This puppy is generally clutched under her arm most days|
There were races with dogs that ran so fast they were over in a flash,
|Great fun to watch but near impossible to photograph!|
|She was itching to be out there|
And there was dog high-jump that had to be seen to be believed, complete with 'catchers' in case they didn't make it up.
|No chance of keeping this fella in a suburban backyard!|
And of course all the usual dog behaviour!
|I was trying to get a pic of the Border Collie and found I had this when I reviewed my photos!|
Fresh country air and plenty of running around worked wonders for three small city girls, with the youngest electing to put herself to bed after dinner!
