My Ryder Man

Ryder, Diva and I went on a jaunt up north today.  We went to Lisa Wright's place.  I had decided to take a lesson from her.  She's been relatively successful on the trial field and has trained dogs for many years.  I was able to get some insight and ideas for Ryder as well as link it back to things I'm doing.  He worked not too bad.  In fact, he was a pretty good boy.  We chatted in general about dogs, Border Collies and training.

I had been pondering neutering Ryder for a good portion of the summer.  Today I made a decision.  I've decided I'm going to do it.  Simply because it will make both his and my life easier.  I have very little interest in breeding dogs.  There are many, many very nice and well bred Border's out there to pick from.  I'll aim for a late August date.
