It’s always awkward crashing a family reunion. Even when it’s a canine reunion. The Cascadian Nomads invited us to come to Huxley’s family reunion on Sunday at a sheep farm. Well we had some communication mishaps and we were at the Collie reunion for three hours before they got there. And someone is very obviously not a Collie.
Even at a canine reunion, family connections matter. People would introduce themselves as this is Fido from so and so’s X litter. Who is your dog? I felt a little out of place with my mutt pup. He doesn’t even know if he’s from the wrong side of the blanket!
And sheep. Most of the Collies tried their paw at herding.
I kind of wanted to see if Mr. N could herd ducks but I was also afraid that he would try to eat them. He does like duck after all. And lamb.
So instead of herding, he romped in the field with the collies and bossed them around. Huxley’s breeder commented that Mr. N has no fear.
Then back to the field. I was looking at the clock and thinking about leaving soon when the Cascadian Nomads showed up! Wilhelm and Mr. N played together for a little while but Mr. N’s favorite playmate of the trio is still Huxley.
We had to leave shortly after the Nomads arrived so we took a group photo right before we left.
Wilhelm got a little distracted and went over to say hello.
Mr. N sends his thanks for the invite to Wilhelm, Brychwyn, and Huxley!
