I haven't been on the boards in awhile, but I think I'm going to try to get back in the swing of things.
Since I was last here, I have procured a new puppy! His name is Oliver, and he's 4 months old today. I feel so fortunate to have such a gregarious, delightful, and well behaved puppy.
We're definitely planning on showing in obedience, and likely agility as well (provided I can scrape up the $$ for lessons ). Right now it looks as though he's going to go oversize, but if he doesn't we may dabble in the conformation ring as well.
Merles are either stunningly gorgeous or stunningly . I fawn over the pretty ones.
Yours is gorgeous. Sorry if I missed this: Sheltie or Collie? If Sheltie, you must do agility!
Aww thanks! I agree about the merles being a very divided group. Lol I love his color, but I'm obviously biased.
He is a sheltie. I'm asking my parents for a Basic Puppy Agility class for Christmas, so hopefully we'll be rolling with that by early next year. There's practice equipment at the dog park we frequent, and he took to it like a duck to water. I'm hopeful he'll like the real deal!
I'm also hoping to do herding, obedience, and possibly therapy dog work with him as well. A lot of it will depend on budget, so I guess time will tell what we actually wind up doing!
