COMMANDS
"Away" / "Away to Me" = Move around (circle) the sheep in an anti-clockwise direction A is
for Away - Anti-clockwise

"Come-Bye"  = Move around (circle) the sheep in a clockwise direction  C is for Come-Bye -
Clockwise

"Get Back" / "Get Out" = The dog is too close, it must keep further out and give the sheep
more room

"In Here" = Move through a gap between sheep to separate them - when shedding. The dog will
then be expected to drive one bunch of the separated sheep away

"Lie Down" = Stop, lie down, slow down or just stand still - but often used to slow the dog
down. Intelligent things Border Collies - good ones can usually tell which the handler means by
the tone of voice

"Look Back" = The dog must leave the sheep it's working and turn around to look for more
sheep. An advanced "look back" can be done in such a way as to indicate to the dog which
direction the new sheep are located

"Stand" = Stand still - the dog must stop but remain on its feet - often used just to slow the
dog's speed or get the dog to allow the sheep to go further ahead of it

"Take Time" = The dog should slow down - usually used when the dog's likely to push the
sheep too hard and therefore panic them

"That'll do" = The dog must stop what it's doing and return directly to the handler

"There" = Stop flanking (circling) and move straight towards the sheep

"Walk Up" / "Walk On" = Move straight towards the sheep in a calm fashion without
spooking them

10 I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to
show it.
11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation,
whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
13 I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.      Philippians 4:10-13
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the
United States of America, and to the
republic for which it stands, one nation
under God, indivisible, with liberty and
justice for all."

When I was about 3 or 4 years old I had one
of my first lessons on "respect". (a
unspoken lesson)  We were behind the
rodeo stands going to our seats. They started
to said the "Pledge" and Daddy stopped in
his tracks, took his hat off and place it over
his heart (as did all the other folks still
behind the stands). We stood there in that
same spot for the National Anthem & the
prayer. Back in those days there was no one
walking around while this was going on. We
couldn't see a flag and there wasn't a bunch
of people watching you to impress. That's
just what people did back then to show
respect for flag, God & country.

while you are
living. That is wealth's greatest satisfaction.

stroke of luck.
43. Learn the rules, then break some.
44. Remember that the best relationship is one where your
love for each
other is greater than your need for each other.

to get it.
46. Remember that your character is your destiny.
47. Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
