Flame (aka: Scamp while in TN Border Collie rescue) at Elaine Coupe's house (foster mom) May, 1999 LOOK at all that cold TN coat he had! :)
Dreamer and Flame meeting for the first time in Pensacola, FL (1/2 way for Elaine and myself). They immediately started hopping around and playing. May, 1999
Elaine saying good-bye to Flame (she had him as a foster for 5 wks as he went through heartworm tx's) NEVER an easy thing to do. May, 1999
Flame's "ILP" picture for the AKC to compete in performance events. June, 1999 (approx. 14 months old)
An easily taught behavior for Flame -- on the word "HOP" you jump up with all four feet off the ground!!
When herding dogs don't get to retrieve ALL the bumpers while out field training.......yes, this used to be a stuffed Mallard!!!
Flame and Dreamer with their "loot" --- winnings from the 2005 NADAC Championship in St. Louis, MO. In the hotel on the way home......
coming home from the NADAC Championships in St. Louis, MO we stopped for some fun at a rest stop in Rend Lake, IL
Just as a geriatric recheck - Flame's hips. Not bad at all for a 9.5 yr old rescue Border Collie! <G>
Flame still offering his "Hop" command to get somebody to throw something to retrieve. Friend Gail took this shot 1-3-09
HE'S A HANDSOME BOY!!
