Another English Shepherd at the Park

Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile on this blog but things can get hectic.  I thought I’d let people know that we spotted another English Shepherd at the park again.

The dog’s name was Maestro and looked A LOT like Sierra since he was a tri-color too but he is a boy.  His body shape reminded us of Cody since he had a bigger head and a broader chest.  So it was a dog that had Sierra’s coloring but was kind of like Cody.  🙂

I took this picture but it was hard to get a good a good shot with Cody, Sierra, and Maestro in the same one while there were not all running around.

When they were running around the park it was hard to tell at a distance which dog Sierra was.  You had to look hard but Sierra is distinctive even when next to other tri-color dogs.

Seems funny as when we first got Cody and Sierra it seemed like the breed was extremely rare.  Now it seems every other week we meet a dog that is an English Shepherd or looks like an English Shepherd mix.  We’ve seen many other English Shepherds in the area so far.  Wonder how many others there are?

Cody and Sierra in Sherwood Gardens

This is a cute picture of Cody and Sierra at Baltimore’s famous Sherwood Gardens I thought I would share.  As you can see Sierra likes to sit on the bench with me when walk over to Sherwood Gardens.  I guess it shows she is the boss since she is above Cody.  She definitely thinks she is a princess and should be treated as such.   It’s nice for the dogs to sit and watch people since they are herding dogs that are supposed to keep watch over things.   I think the dogs need mental stimulation just as much as physical exercise.

Sierra actually escaped twice because she couldn’t resist chasing a rabbit and squirrel.  When she was chasing the rabbit, with me and Cody trying to catch her, she was skipping just like the rabbit.  It was pretty funny to watch but nerve-wracking too I wasn’t sure if she would go into the street.  Sometimes she is a really bad girl, but she doesn’t care!  Cody tends to be more agreeable, at least most of the time.
