Didgie is freakin' adorable. I think she'll be a dock diving queen soon.
Stupid loud dogs. She has SUCH a shrieky bark that it carries so far. Heads where turning to see who was dying.

Didgie has obedience though and can hold a sit and a down. Angry Kelpie does NOT hold positions without barking or leaping! Does not!
ETA: My perception of "loud" is soooo skewed now. I actually thought, "wow, she's pretty quiet" LOL Compared to 6 screaming, nipping, barking, spinning herding idiots...or even just one hahahaha
Yeah, her retrieve is pretty pathetic. Typically we've been doing "If I get the tug before you then you don't get to tug" which works well for retrieving because if she drops it I take it and don't give it to her. But since I was trying to reward heavily for jumping off the dock our retrieving left really fast.
Oh don't worry, angry barking happens more times than not during stays but they're getting better! I was actually really impressed with her listening to so well.
And believe me, that wasn't loud for her. Just loud when I was trying to fly under the radar
