The Real Time Canine II

After spending 2 years writing the Real Time Canine, the adventure continues with The Real Time Canine II. Read along as I look for just the right puppy to continue the experience. After false starts with Tim and Jed, I am currently training young Tam, and Spot, which are both off to a strong start. Please visit the RTC II to read about training sessions as they occur.

Delta Bluez

The 2 dogs shown above belong to my friend, Diane Pagel of Delta Bluez Stockdogs in Carnation, Washington, and they are both for sale. Finn, the dog at the top, is $550 and Break is offered at $1,000. Please contact Diane directly for more information.

In addition to the 2 dogs for sale, Diane has a tremendous collection of 25 rare and out of print books for sale on the
Bookstore page of her website. Here you will find titles such as "A Lifetime with the Working Collie," 1979, by Arthur Allen and a program from the 1968 US International Sheepdog Trial with biographies of Lewis Pulfer and George Conboy. I was impressed when I read down the list and really dissappointed to see that Tony Iley's "Sheepdogs at work" written in 1989 had already been sold.

If you're looking for a nice, started dog at a great price or a good read, please send Diane an email.
