Hopefully, on or about August 1st, we'll have some miniature versions of these two born. Zac and Chris were bred this week and there are several of us waiting anxiously for an ultrasound on June 23rd to see if she took. I'm trying to not get overly excited after the disappointment of Gael's negative ultrasound when i tried to breed her this past winter, but it's hard not to. They should be good all around pups, nice natured and dead keen for work. Zac and Chris are very similar dogs so i'm hoping the pups will be pretty consistent. It's going to be a very long couple of weeks of waiting for that ultrasound.
But speaking of waiting, at least some of it is over. I got Meg out on sheep yesterday and she turned on and looked great! She's just now 5 months old but was pretty serious and determined. It was great fun to watch her little brain working so hard. I liked what i saw quite a lot. I hope to get a copy of video someone there shot, but in the meantime, here are a couple of pictures.
And a bonus picture of Bill, just because i like it - Julie, Laura and i were fooling around with the camera yesterday while working dogs. Wish i could erase that weed!
And a bonus, bonus picture of Spottie, who is back home now (long story!). She's staring at Julie's very patient cat Jelly Bean.
