Adventures In Dogsitting

On Thursday morning, Kelly dropped Ace and Piper off for a couple of days. We’ve never taken care of an Australian Shepherd, so I thought this was going to be an adventure.

It ended up being no big deal.

Piper, an almost one year old Australian Shepherd. She is a red merrel, which means she has red-ish brown fur, with a lot of white and tan fur as well.

piper was awesome. She was really well behaved and as long as we played fetch every couple of hours, she was quite relaxed.

Piper and Cessna stand together in our yard waiting for the frisbee to fall.

Piper catches an orange plastic frisbee. You can see Rogue and Cessna in the picture as well, since they had also tried to catch it.

Piper has caught the orange plastic frisbee and you can see both Cessna and Rogue beside her.

I wasn’t sure how Canyon would take to having another dog compete for the ball or frisbee, but he didn’t seem to care. Sometimes I’d hold his collar so that piper could catch the toy first before he was released to bring it back, and sometimes I just let them work it out on their own. there wasn’t any arguments, and Piper seemed to quickly learn that she was welcome to run after and catch the toy, but Canyon had to bring it back or he’d pester her until she gave it up.

Rogue has an orange plastic frisbee, and is being chased by both Piper and Canyon.

When kelly returned, Piper was really excited to see her, but Ace was a big goof and pretended he was busy playing with something, lol!

In July, Piper will be coming to visit for 5 days, so that should be a lot of fun.
