Hoedad's turn. This little tanker was AFTER them ducks! Reminded me a lot of Hank from 2 years ago - barely a moment's hesitation at the start, and then it was off to the races.
Just a note - the ducks are NOT being abused. It's 48 degrees out, and they started moulting a few days ago. The pups aren't stressing them at all; they get all honky and flappy when the cows walk by the pen. None of the pups even got near enough to put a paw on them, let alone a tooth.
|Love Hoedad's ears here|
|What a nice walk up from a 7 week old pup his first time out!|
|He's doing some nice rating here|
|Check out that intensity!|
|This is the start of a really cool series - many thanks to the photog, Dale, and his amazing Nikon D7000. Check out the eye on that pup already! Good thing he really doesn't look anything like a Border Collie|
|He gets a little too close and backs off a bit - pretty cool for a youngster to do that rather than dive right in and cause a train wreck|
|Pulling them off the fence - not sure that's what he planned, but then again, he probably didn't really have a plan at this point|
|Love the nub!|
|No, not a pointer, an Aussie|
