    He still looks like a tiny puppy to me...

    There was a merlin at at a class I went to tonight, who essentially looked a bit like your merlin!

    Except he wasn't red merle, and was a welsh collie and THE BIGGEST COLLIE EVER. I think he was taller than Fred.

    But to the untrained eye, he totally looked like a big Aussie. And was called merlin :D

    and in other very important news.. Merlin is officially a service dog in training :) he passed his puppy test with flying colors and now is rocking a vest! He is officially housebroken and has enough general manners and experience in public to be able to do a few public outings! YAY!

    He's an adorable mess. And he knows it. :rofl1:

    And 30lbs! He's huuuge! How much does dad weigh?

    Also, does he bounce?? I met up with a couple Aussies tonight and they are SO bouncy! Oh my gosh. One was constantly bouncing off Blaze's head. :rofl1:

    I love how all the other puppies look all hyped up and ready to play and Merlin is just sitting there all perfect haha. Good job!


    Also, I don't understand how our puppies seem to be the same size. I would have thought Merlin would be a lot bigger than Journey. Or maybe I just have a mutant lol.

    I know! I think it's because they have such great gender features.. Journey just looks like such a GIRL! Lol and Merlin like such a goober boy.

    Got him weighed/measured today, he is 32.8 pounds and 22" tall at the shoulders
