Berry & Carrie's Story...
We couldn't choose between these two litter sisters...so kept them both
Lucy and Sooty gave us a gorgeous litter of seven little 'uns (details here) and we honestly had trouble choosing the 'pick'. The pups are now a year old and any one of them could have fun in the show ring. Even the boy that we thought would be much larger than ideal has finished up 15". Anyway, back to the hooligans that we kept with ourselves...pictures of some litter mates are here.
True sisters stick together at 15 weeks old:
Practicing for the table at four months...we forgot to change camera settings, but first two are Carrie, third is Berry
We can practice on the floor too...but toys really take up most of our time these days.
We're now actually five months old - do you get the impression that we like puppy tubos?
Actually, we spend more time in the fields these days...
Berry with her sister Katie (now Amy) who came to visit at five months old...
Carrie with Cindy at six months old
Berry at seven months - is this the naughty chair or just special for me, me , me?
Behind bars until new (baby) visitors get used to our seven month antics.....
Maturing nicely at eight months, although Carrie could do with sunglasses to save her squinting in the light!
By nine months we've both been doing OK, excellent, OK, excellent, OK etc. in the ring. Carrie refuses to walk in the ring at shows where there is loud barking beside her. Ludicrous given that she loves people, and is well used to loud noises (not to mention our lot barking) and quite happily trots around like Lady Muck by the ringside...but that's Shelties.
Jumping forward to twelve months old and we're very happy with life.
Our line takes a loooooong time to mature, but it's looking good so far.
Here's to an enjoyable 2009!
