Howdy ho fans, its Bet, your roving Border Collie Reporter!
Just as I promised, here are the teams that wonderful Richard (who doesn't call me neurotic, or crazy, or a flunk from a top herding kennel) is running in The Percy on 24 March 2011.
Harumpf... I'll have you know that the reason I left the top herding kennel was because I didn't like all of the jealousy from the other Border Collies for my mad herding skills.
As proof, here is an action shot of me at one of the local herding competitions, where everyone cheered at the masterful way I herded this particularly stubborn sheep thing.
Anyhoo, back to The Percy teams.
Here is the wonderful Richard

As some of you more astute readers have figured out... hey, why only 9 dogs on each team???
Well, there's a reason for that, which I'll get to tomorrow, among other interesting things about this race that are totally different than other races. Right now I have to go hold down the couch.
