The Real Time Canine II

After spending 2 years writing the Real Time Canine, the adventure continues with The Real Time Canine II. Read along as I look for just the right puppy to continue the experience. After false starts with Tim and Jed, I am currently training young Tam, and Spot, which are both off to a strong start. Please visit the RTC II to read about training sessions as they occur.

The Caption Contest

OK, so here's the deal; I thought it might be fun to have a contest and see who can come up with the most witty caption for this photo. I took it just after Mirk gathered the sheep and loaded them for me as we were leaving the practice field for home. Mirk has turned his head away for some reason and the ewe looking down at him doesn't seem to trust what's going to happen next. I don't know why that would be, he was a perfect gentleman on the gather.

The caption could be based on the composition of the shot, or what the ewe and Mirk are thinking and I'll give you 2 weeks to come up with something clever. You may either leave your answer as a comment to this post so everyone can see each submission, or email me privately. Please remember, if you leave your answer here as an anonymous comment, I can't contact you if you win.

And what do you win for being so sharp? Just in case I have trouble choosing a winner, I'm giving away a first and second place prize. 1st place will be a 6 month subscription to The Real Time Canine and 2nd place will be a 3 month subscription. If you are already a subscriber, I will extend your subscription by that amount of time. Don't worry if you've just stumbled on this blog by accident and don't know a thing about sheepdogs. You are welcome to play and your caption can include something about your grandmother's pot roast for all I care. The winners will be the 2 that register highest on my humor meter, and here's a hint; I'm a huge cynic. Good luck all!
