BorderCollieSam Posted February 9, 2009 Report Share Posted February 9, 2009 Hi There, I joined this forum when i got my Border Collie puppie (Sam) around 4 weeks ago from a Farm in North Wales. Sam is coming on really well, both growing in size, and his affection thats being displayed to us, however he seems to still be nipping and snapping at my wife and 2 daughters......but not me.......i correct him everytime he does it when i'm close by, but a lot of the time he won't do it when i'm with them, only when i'm not! Sam is now nearly 10 weeks old and he is having his final set of injections on Saturday, so really looking forward to taking him out for proper walks/runs/training 1 week after his final injections. However, in the meantime i've been taking him out with me in the car, and also been letting him out in the back garden. Sam can do sit, paw, down, stay in both sit and down (for count of 10), he picked this up within the first week! However, nothing could have prepared me for the exictement of what happened on Saurday morning! We have 6 rabbits and let them out regularly for runs. Sam has seen the Rabbits and sniffed them through the hutches many times but never been in the garden with them when they've been loose. However, Saturday morning the rabbits were allready out running in the garden, the hutch is on the left of the garden and all rabbits apart from 2 were near the hutch. One rabbit was in the middle of the garden, the other was on the far right. I let Sam out of the house because i thought he wanted to go to the toilet, but ss soon as i let Sam out he lowered his body, tail between his rear legs, his head went down low and his ears pricked up! He approached the rabbits really stealth like, just like a cat does when its after a bird before it pounces, and then he stopped still in his position, looked at both rabbits left and right, you could really see he was thinking about the situation, and then he darted between the two of them, and came back towards the rear of the right hand side rabbit, chased it towards the centre rabbit and then chased both of them back towards the hutch! It was incredible to watch, i was so pleased and he looked like he was really enjoying himself. I let him have a play with the rabbits for about 1/2 an hour, he was running constantly and afterwards came into the house and went to sleep for about 3 hours. Here are some photos of him with the rabbits, scroll to the bottom of the page.... http://www.sonifenton-scott.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/MyDog.htm Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
