Love the last photo! He is fast heading towards the leggy puppy stage.

 

Edited to add: Is it my imagination, or does his face look more BC from one side, and more ACD from the other?

Not your imagination.  Obviously his facial structure is symmetrical but if I take profile shots from different sides I honest to god look like I have two different dogs - and one of them's way more BC and the other's way more ACD.  He's like a rorschach puppy.

My Oscar has a symmetrical white face but two different colour eyes.  If you block one side of his face and then the other, it often looks like he has two totally different expressions.  That was why I noticed it.  I do love the eccentricities of the more unusual marked dogs.

 

I love the description Rorschach puppy.  I may have to steal, er, borrow that one.

New favorite ~ the Hover Puppy one you just posted. And I love that spot on the left side of his head, an inch or so above his left eye.

 

Thanks so much for all the pix, Cpt. Jack. I won't be having a second dog for a while, so I get to vicariously enjoy the puppy stage this way!

I'm having a good time getting to know him.   He's definitely a pretty good mix of what I'd expect of a cattle dog and what I'd expect of a BC.  

 

He's smart, eager, a little bit headstrong/opinionated but not in a bad way.  He is highly, HIGHLY food motivated,  learns fast, really likes tug  and chasing toys, but doesn't quite get the point of bringing them back.  Sleeps through the night, is more or less housebroken (he occasionally gets involved in hard play and just piddles where he is, but he's also 12 weeks old, you know?), has more or less stopped the puppy mouthing nonsense.  Is cautious about some things but responds to that caution by sitting down and watching or going to investigate it without any interference or coaxing and gains confidence amazingly fast - or gets bored and dismisses them.  The one time he got seriously startled (skateboard flew past his nose) he ran off and then came, sat in my lap, watched them retreating and proceeded not to care about it at all (They were doing laps around a walking trail).     Really likes people and is sweet and friendly but gets sick of them in fairly short order - unless they're us or a kid, in which case it's all love, all the time.  Cuddly in small doses, but not clingy. Likes other dogs in general and enjoys playing with them, tends to lay down when intimidated and, again, watch.  Dogs getting too rough with him are more likely to result in him telling them off than yelping and running, but. Well, that's about what I'd expect. 

 

He's just, so far, a very sensible, stable, well balanced, moderate, really good puppy that I enjoy a LOT.

That had a ball before Molly happened. Amazingly it's still ball like.

He is a really, really, *good* boy.  


He also graduated to Jack (the RT I lost to cancer a few days after he came home)'s collar and it.  Is making me amazingly happy.

He's also making Molly's life difficult.

Oh soooo cute. [A little late, as I haven't been on the Boards much.]

I'm glad he is so good and well-balanced. Did you find him locally?

Maybe I can meet him at the fall NADAC trial. 😊

I actually got him from Brunswick County, which I didn't even know existed until him.  Long day, but not so far that it took multiples. 

 

He will totally be at the fall trial,  and you should definitely meet him. He's a sweetheart of a puppy and would definitely enjoy it.   He's gone to some agility stuff already (just a vt run star city hosted and some practices/lessons) and had a good time.

15 weeks - and if the caption of that picture for him isn't "I AM A GOOD BOY" I don't know what is.   He's a doll.

Learning to like water.    (I know he looks worried but he was very, very willing to follow me out for babyfood).
