  1. Triple Crown Easy Gliders, definitely! After using many a plastic frisbees, this one glider has lasted more than a few months with Blaze.
  2. Thanks for the cross post from Sheepdog-L. I will be sending my check off Monday for one - sounds like a very good thing to have, especially for a newbie like myself!
  3. WONDERFUL slideshow! The music was awesome - and the photography was of course stunning. Thank you for sharing!
  4. Like the posters above have said, these photos are STUNNING. I love how you capture the handler and dog after a run - those photos speak volumes.
  5. Great pictures! Like Paula said, keep 'em coming!
  6. The webcast was amazing - I hope this well become a regular thing for the Finals! Thanks, I will definitely do that!
  7. Yes, their run was amazing! So calm and cool about everything, it seemed!
  8. I completely agree Paula. The webcast overall is SO great!
  9. Great shots, both of you! Thanks for posting, please keep them coming!
  10. I'll add my agreement. Very nice - thanks!
  11. She looks just like Blaze as a pup, too! What a cutie - congratulations on the new addition!
  12. Congratulations - look forward to hearing more about your future trials!
  13. Lone is gorgeous - wow! And you are a wonderful photographer!
  14. It gets pretty hot down here in south Alabama during the summer. I've found those cheap plastic (hard sideded) kiddie pools you can buy for about $15 at places like Wal-Mart to be extremely nice. The dogs love them. They can all easily get in and out as they please/feel the need to when they get hot. And if I feel they are too hot, I can easily tell them to get in and "chill" for a for minutes. You could also try games with water hoses. Some dogs like to chase the water. I agree with those that said to replace the ball for training time. If you do play ball, I would hose him down before, during, and after the game of ball. And of course, make sure he has a constant supply of fresh, clean water. You mentioned you have an above ground soft sideded pool. We've got one left over from last year that I'm going to be using as a dog pool for my dogs this year. I plan to take the ladder that it came with and attach a ramp to it so the dogs can climb in and out. Then make a flat piece inbetween where the handle bars are. Not sure how I'll make the entrance to it so they can get up the ladder, but it's an idea.
  15. Among the things you listed, I like to see someone who trains his/her own dogs. And has trained other dogs and to know how these other dogs do in trials/working on the farm(<-- not a must by any means, though) and to see what others have say about a breeder's dogs. Are they happy with them? Are they placing in trials? If not, why? What are other puppy buyers saying? Those are just some things. My list changes as my knowledge grows, hehe. I'm interested to hear what others say on the subject.
  16. I've never found them to be worth it. A few of our neighbors have tried them and their dog/s always escaped and came down to our fence to bother our dogs. It's annoying. And of course once the dogs got out, they never went back in till the owner came and got them. Luckily for us, all our neighbors have since put up physical fences.
  17. More puppies! I <3 Eve. Tally looks full of spunk!
  18. Holy mess, look at that tongue on Riggs!!
  19. O/T: The law for rabies shots has changed in AL? None of my guys have needed the rabies shot yet this year, so I guess I must have missed this. Great news!
  20. Aww, they are getting so big! How old are they now? Tweed looks like a momma's boy.
  21. Blaze usually ignores strangers. If we are out walking, he'll look over at them, ears up, but quickly leaves them alone and goes back into 'walking' mode when I tell him to leave it. If we stop and talk to someone, he usually ignores them. Depending on the person he might go up to them, or might not. If we have people over at our house that he has not met or only seen a time or two he's very good with them. He'll say come and see what's up, but then leaves them alone. He's really good about meeting people, not shy. With people he knows, he has the nickname "mr. wiggly butt" for a reason, lol.
  22. Those ears are just awesome. I want to rubrubrub them. Like the others, I would agree that she doesn't look like the conformation type Border Collie. She looks smaller and finer boned that any confomation Border Collies I've seen.
  23. Definitely Calli - it's a very good shot! Love the colors and balance between sheep and dog.
  24. Our neighbor got a puppy a few months ago (some type of hunting dog, I think Pointer) and it's the silliest puppy I've ever seen. Doesn't look like they grow up much? Lovely pictures!
  25. Gorgeous pictures - the second one is stunning!
