Bert took it like a man.
Meet the Sheep Day actually took place back on the partly snowy December 28th, which was Bert's second day on the farm, but somehow these photos got lost in the beaglemania shuffle. The sheer number of sheep was a little intimidating to him—until he was off the leash. Then the chase was on. More than once.
Fortunately over the past month Bert and the sheep seem to have come to an understanding, once a few of the woolies made it clear, leash or no leash, that they weren't afraid of a little beagle pup. The deal is that they won't bother him as long as he quits trying to get them to chase him. (Bert loves being chased.)
Both parties have slipped up a few times on their end of the deal, and Bert still insists on sneaking into the ram pen every few days (which is pretty brave considering I don't even like going into the ram pen) and running circles around our two big rams while loudly barking his head off. The boys don't seem to mind, though, and fast moving Bert always keeps one eye on his escape route.

What can I say, it's been puppy pandemonium around here—and I've been loving every minute of it. Okay, except for the sheep chasing minutes. But definitely loving the rest.
