Getting Ready for The Percy... or Not - Bet

Howdy Ho everyone, your stuck at North Wapiti staring at the walls listening to Tramp and her kids yammer day and night reporter, Bet, here!


Since I'm not at The Percy reporting, that means I'm missing out on the people that bring pizza to your door, and the soft cushy extra large dog beds in the hotel room, and the waffles for breakfast.

To taunt me (she calls it a pop quiz) the Musher is sending me pictures to help me with my sheep training.

This one was easy:  Those look like the beastie that's on the sweater... you remember the sweater... this sweater

Those are definitely cowabou!

This one has horns, but its not fluffy, therefore its a goat.

I didn't even need the book for that one!

If you click on the picture and make it bigger, you can see that this is probably a Shipping Goat, because it has an arrow on its rump that tells the people moving it which side is up.  Either that or the arrow is pointing to where you change the oil.  Not really sure about that one actually.

So, generally... I don't have a lot of information, because I'm not there.  This totally restricts my reporting ability.  I'm thinking about filing a lawsuit about freedom of the press or something.

In the meantime, I'm doing a lot of studying with my wonderful new book thanks to Tammy.  If finally came in the mail the other day and I've been working my way through it.

Since all of the Curly Tails now have a sponsor, I've removed the sponsor buttons on the right side of the blog, but you will notice two very important dogs that do not have official sponsors.  These two dogs have been training a LOT and next year, so we will be sure to go on cool road trips with the Curly Tails, Musher, and Richard
Cricket and I are going to be official North Wapiti Pretty Curly Tails... well, at least one of us is pretty.

So, if you'd like to sponsor us, just click the button for either Cricket or myself... because we have to buy our own harnesses, booties and stuff and could use the money.  Plus I'm pretty sure I'll need a personal full time toe masseuse.  We have a wager going on who gets the most sponsors, so if you all could at least make sure Cricket has one sponsor so I don't have to deal with a cranky guard dog, I'd appreciate it.

I laughed out loud about the comments about the goat. Thanks Penny, you are great.

I swear Bet, you could write a book... Your way with the words is priceless, at least for a Border Collie. But weren't you a little hard on Cricket? Cricket is a cool dog, giving good advice to Todd this past summer and withstanding the humiliation of a naked photo on the internet.
Maybe you need to research goats a little more. It's definitely NOT a actually tastes pretty good but does not give milk. Maybe Cricket could help you out with that one... hmmm?

We're very proud to help sponsor Bet!

Um, Bet, I'm really glad your book finally got there, but GOAT? Really? Study harder, Bet and maybe there will be more waffles in your future. Thanks for keeping us as up to date as you can. I know it's hard.

Ah-h-h-h-h Bet, life is full of annoying disappointments, I'm sorry. Study as hard as you can so you will become indispensable. Maybe I'll have to look at sponsoring both you and Cricket. I love big St. bernard/Newfoundland type dogs you know.
