We went out today to play some frisbee the other day. Chloe and Nell had fun, but Chloe froze up a little in her paws and started limping and bleeding a little, so we went back to the car and went home. She's ok, was just a small scratch from the freezing ice between her toes. But while we were out there, we also met another person with her 2 dogs. After playing a little, one of her dogs had seen an injured duck. And there were no other ducks around as well. The duck would have never survived where it was, and her dog chased it a little, but then turned back. My dogs caught wind of it also and started towards it. The duck tried getting away and Nell circled it to the front, and layed down, and chloe went up along side of it and stayed. I was going up to Nell and the duck started going towards the fence and Chloe and Nell stopped it again, staying about 2 feet from it and planted themselves again. The gal asked if the duck was ok and I told her it was hurt. So she took it to take care of it, she has ducks and guinea hens of her own that she raises. So it's going to be ok. It was pretty cool that she was able to care for it and nurse it back to health. I think it had an injured wing and couldn't fly. It was also nice to see Nell and Chloe work, and not attack the duck. And whenever Nell stopped the duck, she planted herself on her belly, like you see BC's do when herding sheep. Wished I would have gotten pics, but I was more interested in keeping the duck from getting further injured.
Well, when out playing, I did get a few more pics.
