It's hard to believe that nine months ago I had no idea what was in store. Nine months ago my little Reba had her pups. Nine months ago I became a surrogate mother as Reba developed Mastitis. Nine months ago I fell in love. I have come to appreciate the quirks and distinct personalities they show me every day. I have learned so much about Border Collies and puppy development. I would hope I'm a better handler, trainer and owner for it. These pictures were taken on a sunny Saturday, just after their birthdays (and first baths).
