A Tail of Visitors

We've intended to post, but have been really busy trying to get things done.  Somehow, one thing after another keeps popping up.
Gemini & Miles
The 16th through the 21st we had visitors.   Miles and his brudder Copper visited our home.  We pick them up, then Dad brings the kennel with the two pups into the house.  First, Miles comes out and takes a little pee and Dad yelled at him.  Miles takes it all in stride  Then Copper walks right in front of Dad by the table and took a big pee to mark his territory in front of Dad.

Dad's time in the oil field came out.  His voice boomed and words from his oil patch day came out.  A few the collies have never heard before.  In his state of agitation and rush to clean up the pee, Dad knocks a bunch of tins that were on the table onto the floor.  We think all that noise scared the dog out of Copper.   Copper refused to come out of the kennel while Dad was around during his stay.
Copper in the Kennel
After awhile Dad decided close the dog door in the back patio and put the kennel in the patio every now and then.  That way Copper could eat and relieve himself.  Dad figured Copper would come out after seeing Miles chilling out with us and Dad.  No such luck.

Dad could have tried to force the issue, but that isn't his style.  Dad checked off leaving the tins on the kitchen table when other pups visit.  It is amazing how something will scare the dog out of one pup, while the others are not phased.

Dog Speed,

Sherman & Gemini

poor little guy - he will probably be scared of loud noises for a long time.

Oops. Those oil fields must have been something to work in.

Well...what are you gonna do...right? I also bet Copper doesn't pee in the house again. At least not in YOUR house! :)
