since Jack and I could not work 3 hours I took some of my "Pips".

|Ruth and I were invited to Jim & Pam Hick's Ranch west of Skiatook, Oklahoma.
Jim was going to work his cow/calf pairs, and had never been able to get them all
in the pen at the same time.So we got there early, but on this day they all decided to walk in
on their own. Ruth, Pam and the dogs did have to go bring in one mama with her new baby.
When Jim finished we went back to his place to play dogs. The calves were is a stand of trees,
which was very good for our dogs, since they never get to work in trees. We took Jack, Kelli &
Bree and they all did a nice job, but Bree & Hick's Dot stole the show,
they looked like they had worked together for years. (Dot, 11moths, is by Jack and out of Bree.)
|We took a trip over to Ben & Leslie Means to visit, get a few pointers from Ben, and to pick up
one of his training tapes.
