Holy crap! Motion just went herding and rocked it! There’s something about watching a dog do what it was bred for that is just absolutely fascinating. Watching him just turn on to those sheep the moment he saw them was such a unique thing to see, I don’t think there is anything quite like it. Today was both mine, and Motion’s first time doing anything herding related, which is probably why I am so fascinated by it. 🙂 anyways, I got videos, and a friend took pictures, so here they are!How cool is he?

Perfect Imperfections

Wow. I am so impressed with Motion. He is exactly what I always wanted, and I wouldn’t change a single thing about my handsome little man. He’s sweet, and obnoxious, all at the same time. He cuddles, and takes up 75% of my bed (which is why he still sleeps in a crate.) He always wants to work, but afterwords, he’s willing to lay down and just be cute, except for those times where he just stares at you and barks his little weenie baby-dog bark. He is a master of pushing other dogs buttons, just to see what happens, but when bad things happen, he goes back to his weenie self, and gives up. He could never hurt a fly, even if he wanted to, because even when he tries to bite any living creature, he fails and just ends up setting his teeth lightly on the skin. Both pointless, and cute.

Anyways…he is brilliant. He almost always picks things up RIGHT away, and just knows when he’s right. And, he hates to be wrong.

WHAT ABOUT SKATEBOARDING?!

This is where he fails. He understands to get on the board, but he doesn’t understand the concept of moving his back feet, while his front feet remain stationary. *sigh* So, while we continue to work on that….we are going to remember that although he hasn’t mastered this..YET, he has mastered spin, twist, shake, high five, sit, drop, give, come, stay, spin on a pot, and he can get in a box! (Impressive, right? 😉 )

So to wrap it all up, he’s perfect for me being not perfect. That doesn’t make sense at all, but oh well.

Go LocoMotion! 🙂
