“Smack”

*2012 Grand Prix of Dog Agility Semi-Finalist

Smack. Oh my Smacky. How do I even begin to write about you?! For years, I had been handling some Border Collies for people at shows every now and then. I knew I wanted one, but it had to be the one. Tall, smooth, tri, prick-eared, male. That was what I wanted. And of course, that’s what became mine. Mark VanMeter of VanMeter Angus Farms in Bowling Green, Kentucky had the post perfect tri puppy available. At two weeks old, looking at ONE photo… I knew that was my boy. And what a crazy boy he was. Out of control, completely lacking focus, and a fifteen year old kid that had no idea what to do with it! We worked, and worked, and worked to the point where I finally felt comfortable asking him to do anything in a show environment. Our bond became stronger and stronger as I began to understand this crazy little boy. Now, at 5 years old, Smack and I have a pretty great understanding of each other, and our teamwork is coming together better than ever. He’s such a joy to own. He does everything with me. Walks, runs, swims, hikes, cuddles. He’s just my perfect boy.
