New here!:D


Recommended Posts

Hi All!:D

 

Im new here!:D I just got my first Border Collie!:) I have trained a couple in the past, but never been lucky enough to have one of my own, well that all changed on Tuesday! He is a ABCA boy and I have chosen his call name to be Rhett(no registered name chosen yet) and he flew up to me from his breeder in Missouri!!

I had my name in for the pick of a litter from another breeder, but she found out that this little guy was still available from her mentor and HIGHLY suggested that I get him, and BOY am I glad I did! At 10 weeks old he is already nearly the best dog Ive ever owned!

I live with my husband in North Western Washington state, we also have 2 cats and a 1 year old pug/x(who likes to think that he gets to be the top dog, while Rhett knows he is boss already!haha) and I have a 14 year old Lhasa who lives with my parents.

Rhett will be my agility dog, trail riding and hiking companion!

 

Well enough talking right?! Here are some pictures!:D

 

Mommi and baby first hour after his plane ride!

Very cute! Your pug brought back memories of my first dog that was a pug mix. His name was Chin and I still miss him. Enjoy your new friend. :)

 

Ah thank you!:D I have never had a dog with no nose before Brody, so it was a change getting him and not being able to go on long walks or hiking and biking....but that is why my husband allowed me to get Rhett!:D

 

 

Welcome! He is a cutie. Love the ears too.

Thank you!:D

I loved this view of his ears, this afternoon after his bath:

Congratulations, and welcome.

 

Call name, registered name? With ABCA, where names are limited to 14 letters and spaces, the name you use and the name on the papers are almost always the same. Plain and simple.

 

Enjoy!

Aw, he's a real cutie! That face is just full of personality. :)

 

As for a registered name ... why not just Rhett? After all, it's border collie tradition to keep names simple! :) Welcome to the Boards. This is a great place to learn and discuss so many things.

Hello there, Rhett is adorable! :) I live in the area (Idaho but right on the WA border and we go into WA frequently) and am starting serious agility training with my young dog Link this summer, so maybe we'll see you around at trials some time in the future. What venue(s) are you planning on competing in?
