New Tradition??

Today I drove to Fort McLeod to meet with Marilyn Clayton & her smooth collie Zephyr. Marilyn & Zephyr go on a circuit of trials every year, & last year she called to see if I wanted to meet up with her. I jumped at the chance as we had only ever spoken through e-mails. Well I got an e-mail earlier this week that she was coming through again, & wondered if I wanted to get together. I hope to do this every year! We had a great time, took the dogs for a long walk , then sat in the shade under a big tree & had some lunch. It is always wonderful to see Zephyr in person...I just love this dog! He has 58 titles to his credit now! He is a champion in Can. & the US. & has titles in Can. & the US. in obedience, rally, agility, herding & carting...there is nothing this dog can't do!
It was fun taking pictures & videos in the exact same spot as last year.....only Kort looks a little different! Oh, & we had Perkins with us too, Zephyr was quite taken with him! I particularly love the video in which both Tate & Zephyr are wagging their tags in unison, must be a tri thing!

Love love love these pix and videos!I'm not a big fan of the smoothies, but Zephyr is a very handsome boy and soooo talented--wow!And I see he likes having his butt scratched--Duffy loves that!The more collies together the better! Is Perkins starting to think that he's a collie too?

Cute videos. Perkins is in a perfect spot to sniff pee pees!! Kort & Tate are handsome as always. Tate just really reminds me of Zoe.
