Default Hello!

Just found this forum and am excited to join. I see a lot of familiar dogs and names from around the interwebz.

I currently have one dog, a 14 month old Welsh Springer Spaniel named Watson. I'd like to do sports with him some day (obedience, rally, and nosework; maybe some agility). We're currently working on his championship first until his brain grows in a little. He's a sweet boy, and hilarious, but he's in a state of arrested development and thinks he's still 9 months old.

Hopefully this picture works:

Welcome to the forum! Gorgeous gorgeous dog!

But don't you know? Boys never grow brains, they just trick you into thinking they are mature to lull you into a false sense of security. Then BAM! Brain gone!

Yes! I have been reading a lot of older threads and already really enjoy the crowd here. Not sure how I missed the existence of this forum for so long.

I am now searching for Koolie and English Shepherd breeders as well. Clearly this forum is a horrible influence.

Thanks! It's like one day he went from doofy to handsome and I didn't even notice. He's done fairly well in the conformation ring so far, so I guess his breeder was right when she said he was something special and talked me into showing him.

Buy why didn't anyone tell me this about the brain thing earlier?! Haha. Yeah, we'll see how it goes. He's definitely in arrested development right now and one of our instructors was shocked that he was already 14 months, and said she still thinks of him as a 9 month old. Uh, yeah, that's because he hasn't matured at all since 9 months. lol

I grew up with a male and female (schnauzers) and the brain thing is 100% true. That girl was smart as a whip and very mature at a young age and the boy was always a doofus. DH wanted a girl, I wanted a boy, and we agreed to take whatever was available/the best fit, and that turned out to be a boy.

He's a sweet boy though, and when he's not being a jerk from 8-10pm every night he's a blast.

Koolies and ES's aplenty here! And apparently go well together too according to the newest Koolie addition to an English Shepherd home by a member here

But really, that's what is so awesome about boys, they are eternally young and never fail to make you laugh right along with them even when you feel like killing them! And they are just totally in love with you. I think I always need a goof ball of a boy with my girl.

It is funny though, how fast girls turn on and how intense they can be from the get go when the boy dogs are over there dancing on the table!

WELCOME! I have this new rule that if people post pictures, I'm going to reply to their threads. It's like people are missing the giant red banner saying "POST PICTURES WITH YOUR INTRO" at the top of this forum. Oh, wait, there isn't one of those? Well, we need one.

You're the first person who posted a picture that I've noticed, and your dog is GORGEOUS! I can completely understand what you're going through. My dog is an ESS mix and he still doesn't have brains at 8 years old. At this point, I've given up hope that he ever will.

So anyway, welcome to chaz. There's nothing like being welcomed to chaz by a drunk!Nolu.

I'm glad Watson is a popular guy! It's certainly nice to see some other spaniels around, though I don't think I've actually seen a picture of Ollie.
