He's NOT a Dingo!

Rory really surprised me a few days ago! I took him to a coffee shop, and some people asked to pet him. Two older, calm, men pet Rory, and he didn't even try to jump on them, until an exited woman walked over…. I'm thinking of buying a vest that says " In training, please ask to pet" so people just don't walk up to him and try to pet him. Everyone except for that lady asked to pet him.

Yesterday was the SECOND time someone has thought Rory is a 'Dingo'. A man was petting Rory, and asked me what breed he is. I told him he's an Australian Kelpie, and he said 'like a Dingo?"…. I was shocked to hear that! I explained that Australian Kelpies are a herding breed, not Dingos. This is getting crazy...

Last year my dad build a large hog pen next to our pasture, in the forest. We never ended up getting pigs, so I'm going to use it as a training area for Rory! There are trees, stumps, and it's hilly inside the pen, so when I do start agility with him, setting up a course is going to be a challenge. The gate and some of the fencing is falling down, so I've been wrapping a giant leash to a tree and connecting it to his harness so he can run around while I work on the fence. I'm also raking all of the leaves and pine straw out of the pen. I'm thinking of making a little Halloween video of Rory, but I can't think of any real cute ideas….


  1. That's cool that you have a place to train Rory without having to worry about someone bugging you, I wish I had a place like that...
    You could teach Rory to hold a trick or treat basket and have him walk to your door then have someone answer it and put a doggy treat in his basket.
