    Thought I'd share some pictures of Robin. I took quite a few that I was pretty happy with so he gets his very own thread.

    Semi stacked (free). Figure he's full grown. He's still intact for now. 38.8 lbs, 20" tall (best I could measure on my own). We are aiming to compete this Fall/Winter in agility and I'm also teaching him a box turn, and some nice obedience.

    Movement...he is very light on his feet, very graceful, he knows exactly how to move his body (unlike a certain bull-in-the-china-shop Kelpie).

    Some head shots. I adore his head from the front, I would prefer a bit more stop from the profile, but he is very balanced overall (IMO). I wish his butterfly nose had stayed around, that was too stinkin' cute. Although the ridge of hair up his face stayed and everyone told me that would shed out.

    He is enjoying learning disc, although I am just terrible at it, so he's learning with Jason.

    He's HAPPY!

    He likes to bring them to me after to show how great he's doing though.

    He has a thing about trying to grab the frisbee with his feet, and then cram it into his mouth, we're working on it LOL

    He is gorgeous! I love the disc pictures!

    Someday I want to meet you. :)
    First, so I can see your amazing dogs in person.
    Then, so you can take pictures of my dogs.

    Awesome shots, and he's just gorgeous!! Quite possibly my favourite looking Border Collie that I've seen. And I loooove his lack of stop, haha, I think I have a bit of a thing for that (judging from all my dogs...).

    Beautiful pictures! Super jealous of those frisbee shots. I can't seem to capture action like that. Great job!
