Pepper is one year old today! Hard to believe. She's still cute as a button and she keeps me entertained. We are just starting to train on sheep- she's very eager to please and loves working the ewes. I think she has a lot of potential and I am very excited about her training!

She's a petite little thing... I think she's maxed out at 20" and 30 lbs, and with a short coat, brindling, ticking, pointy ears, and small size, I have to convince people that yes, she IS a Border Collie :)

5 weeks old, before she came home:

Little did I know those floppy puppy ears would turn into these:

7 weeks:

We had a poor showing of snow for her first winter (which is fine by me!) but she learned that snow is fun!

and the Peepers this weekend:

Happy birthday, Peeps!

Thanks for looking :)
