Soldier Hollow Sheep Dog Trials — 14 Comments

  1. hugs to your Al, that is not easy…
    thanks for a wonderful post about this fabulous pups… one reason more to be sure that dogs are absolutely amazing ;o)

  2. Hello, the dog trials are cool to watch. The dogs are so well trained. I like that they have a cool bath after working so hard. Jackson Hole would be my favorite spot to be, minus the smoke and wildfires. Stay safe. Great series of photos. Enjoy your day!

  3. I’m so glad you and Al got to the sheepdog trials. I actually know a few handlers that ran dogs there and are from here in the northeast and Canada. Your pictures are fantastic!

  4. Congratulations on your son’s wedding! I’ve been to some sheep dog trials and thoroughly enjoyed them. Those dogs are so incredibly smart and clearly love what they do.

  5. That looks like soooo much fun!! It was a lot of work for your Al, but it looks like it was all worthwhile. Now just relax and take it easy for a while.

    Congratulations to all on your son’s wedding!

  6. Wow, you’ve been on the go. I love your action shots from the sheep dog trials. They are amazing dogs and you captured their intensity really well.

    We just got back from 3 wks on the road. Your eclipse suggestions were our guide, and they were perfect. We spent a few days resting in the Lander area, enjoying the outdoors. Then we went to the forest near Dubois, as you suggested. It was perfect.

    What kind of cell service do you use to stay connected over such a wide range of places? We found that Wyoming had no ATT coverage while that’s the only company that has any coverage near our home. Anyway, we were cut off from the internet world.

    I wanted to comment on your “don’t steal my photos” post but it won’t let me. Let me say that I’ve had to fight this battle many times. I used DMCA take down letters sent to the web host. I don’t know so much about instagram except that I’m scared to post there based on all the stories of theft that I’ve run across.

    I think that younger people have no sense of what constitutes theft of intellectual property. They think that the web is a free-for-all. I don’t know how to change that.

  7. I would love to see a sheep dog trial live. Thanks so much for sharing the pics.

    We DO see plenty of dock diving dogs. But not in competitions. :)

  8. It has to be a great part of the life you live that you can be flexible, and circumstances can land you someplace else to enjoy! I love to watch the diving dogs, but I’ve never seen the herding dogs in action – thanks for sharing! A dog’s intensity can be so fascinating.

  9. It must be fun to see what those dogs are capable of.
    So you have smoke too. So many fires this year, really bad. Of course it is still smoky here. They are hoping to save the Lake McDonald lodge from burning. Yikes!
