A few pics trying out my new camera
May 26, 2009
I put the "Dirty Dozen" pups (Ivy's and Ruby's together) on sheep for the first time today just to see if there was any interest. Most of the pups would only get about 3-5 ft away so they weren't far enough away for pics but the ones that did go far enough away showed some very good interest and I got a few pics of them. Ivy's pups will be 8 wks on Thursday. Meko, Cora, Morgan, Edward, Merlin and Nemo - who was the most cautious pf the bunch - showed a lot of keen interest and would walk near me and keep an eye on the sheep. They would get about three ft ahead of me then stop and look back as if to say "see what I did?!?!?"--cus the sheep would move off of them. They would get excited and want to tear off after them but always stopped short to check on me. You could see the little "flicker". JR, good ole' Skip Junior-also FOR SALE, was the only pup to try and eap out of my hands to get the sheep when they started moving. He was the only one that showed a good distinction for wanting to go to the head and stop the movement also was the only one who went all the way around...once. :-) Cricket, and true to form...we followed the sheep, in my arms, as I did with all the others. I stopped and put her down. She immediately sat on my foot. So I said "Come on Cricket, lets get the sheep " and started walking after them. She got up and walked next me, when the sheep turned and headed back to the gate at a run she was off like a lightening bolt. There was some hair/wool hanging off of one of the ewe's and Cricket grabbed it . A different ewe was facing her and stomped it's foot. Cricket barked at it which scared the ewe so it turned and ran off. Cricket was defiantly the big dog there. :-) Charlie-FOR SALE- was quite impressive. Charlie is Mr. Laid Back, no need to hurry kind of boy. On stock, he tried to look like he knew what he was doing. He went right up to them and got them moving. He has more presence than I thought he would have. The sheep moved off of him very easily and he never got super close to them as some of the pups were able to do. I really liked what I saw in him, he is going to be a very nice boy. This is a really nice cross. Skip is a great sire... due to 90% of his pups being one working farms -vs- trialing/performance homes no one really knows how well he can produce....except for the cattle folks who have his pups.

Finally had a few minutes to take some pics of the pups.
I doubt if I got individual of all the pups since I had 12 out there but we will see.
Hard to get pics of just one when there are 12 running around.
Also 3 short videos I took of the pups playing outside.
Today was our first adventure outside. And boy was it fun. All the pups really seemed to enjoy playing in the grass and wandering around. A couple pups were more adventurous than the others-as some pics will show but they looked around.
April 30th--Weighed the pups
JR- 4 lb 0 3/8 oz (bbm)....FOR SALE
Nemo- 3lb 13 oz (bmm)
Merlin- 3lb 15 oz (bbm)
Cricket- 2lb 12 1/2 oz (bmf)
Cora- 3 lb 9 1/8 oz (bmf)
Charlie- 3lb 2 3/8 oz (rbm)
Morgan- 4lb 5 3/4oz (bmm)
Bella- 3lb 0 1/2 oz (bmf)
Edward 4 lb 3 1/8oz (bmm)Quite obvious who the big boys are. :-) The girls are all over though I was surprised that Cricket and Bella were as close as they are. Cricket looks so much smaller. She is a compact little thing. None of the pups are roaly poly fat. All pretty solid. I compared wts with Ebbies litters to see where they are...with Ivy's birth litter and this litter they are all about the same...except Cricket, put a half pound on her and she will be the same... So wt wise all looks good.
April 27th--25 days old

These pups will have the bloodlines to be everything their ancestors are...
....good working dogs!
