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.

Black and White and Tan

Spottie's off the block. Changed my mind...decided to keep him. Love him!

This will be an easy decision for just the right person. I am offering Spot for sale and wanted you all to know first. He is just 13 months old and will make someone a very nice prospect and a strong nursery candidate. His birthday is November and he was born in 2011.

Here are some pictures that I took today while working him.

Spottie has a little gather, knows his flanks and is on whistles. He will peel sheep off the fence, no problem, and has a lot of walk up for one so tender. If you like training dogs that you have to hold back instead of asking up, this one's for you.

Spot is a grandson of Howard's Spot, which is father to Tommy Wilson's Sly, a Meeker and Soldier Hollow Champion, and father to Haley Howard's Ross, a US Nursery Champion. The Howard's Spot line is powerful indeed. Nancy Penley's Emma is Spottie's mother. Angie Coker Sells had this to say about Emma; "This is the kind of dog we should be breeding to," so Nancy did.

Contact me privately for more information. bordersmith @ sbcglobal dot net. Anyone who likes working Border Collie Sheepdogs will like this dog. He's keen, he's powerful and he's a pleasure to live with. The decision to purchase a dog like this is as plain as black and white and tan.
