<p>A few years ago at Stampede we stumbled across the stock dog competition, now we plan our visits around it.  Saw the championship round last night, and joined with the crowd in silently willing each dog to do well.  Gosh those mutts are wicked smart.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And some of the sheep have attitude.</p>
<p> </p>

<p>wicked smart, oh yeah, wicked</p>

<p> and the intensity in their eyes can be downright scary!</p>

<p>as for the sheep: I love it when they turn and snort and stamp their feet <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>

<p>This year they had a few that did more than that, one actually charged the dog.  The dog was disqualified for doing what would be expected of him in the field - nipping the ewe on the rump - but we wondered what they were feeding the ewes!</p>

<p>That looks much more fun to watch than calf roping or bull riding.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Watching some of the events on TV, really makes me want to find a pancake breakfast somewhere!</p>

<p>It is interesting, strangely enough, in a zen prairie fusion sort of way.</p>

Ducks may not have the mean streak of sheep, but they are at a bit of an advantage over a dog in that they can fly. :)</p>
