    This is Thomas he is 75% GSP and 25% Border Collie. So far so good he is a wee gem but we are fortunate as he is part of our pack of three other dogs brought home at 6 weeks old so he has learnt where he is in the pecking order pretty quick The Scottie is the boss, the bearded collie the trainer and play pal and the Westie as the grumpy old man.

    Thomas is 13 weeks old today and took some photos while out walking today, This is him with the ball and not wanting Molly the collie to get the ball from him.

    He is absolutely gorgeous:001_tt1: It will be really interesting to see how the collie in him affects the pointer character, you'll have to let me know;) My pointer does the sheepdog crouch/down thing when he's waiting for his ball to be thrown:D

    yeah we are waiting to see. He looks Pointer but I am hoping he will have a few collie traits i.e. instant recall etc. He's a calm pup not hyper very easy to keep him steady out and about, well at the moment anyway. He runs with our pack which I think makes the pup calmer, our dogs show him how to behave better than what we do.

    This is what we are waiting to find out. He is only young at the moment and is pretty much following what our bearded collie is doing. Shows no signs yet of being interested in birds YET!!!!! although his nose is down to the ground a good bit but he has a liking for the bunny droppings. Got to be honest I am hoping for more border collie than GSP when it comes to being out and about on walks. So far he is seldom on the lead been out walking since 9 weeks old and recently we are testing him in various situations you know if he climbs over the dyke and into the wood we don't say anything we just calmly watch how he behaves and after a while a quick shout and he is straight over but we worry that it can not be this easy and keep thinking it will all go wrong shortly.

    well Thomas will shortly be 10 months old and Iv'e got to say he is a cracker.

    His recall is excellent you can see him working but never far from me. Having never owned a hunting dog before I was not sure what to expect from him.
