    I got a Border Collie puppy back in July, so this thread is a bit late. Her name is Jinger and she's a very good puppy-if puppies can be called "good."

    This first picture was back when I first got her. (Alongside my other BC, Kate)

    Working on self control around food, something she really, really needed to learn-and mastered very quickly.

    Another picture next to Kate to track her growth.

    They like to stalk each other in play, and I really like how this picture turned out.

    Taken last week, when Jinger had just turned 16 weeks. We've been working on sitting still for pictures-notice the lack of a leash in this picture?

    Kate is such an awesome dog! I haven't met Jinger yet, but it looks like she will be awesome too!

    Thanks! I alternate between thinking she's pretty and catching glimpses of an ugly Jack Russel or Shorthair Pointer. (No offense to lovers of said breeds. ;) )
    Jinger is 17 weeks and almost 17 pounds! My little five pound shrimp is starting to grow. :)

    Below, she's wondering if she can have a treat for sitting so nicely, while Kate wants to go chase the cows or finish her interrupted swim.

    Jinger is 17 weeks and 18 pounds. She had her first trip to town for her rabies shot yesterday. She did great-wasn't excited, and wasn't scared, just neutral and looking to me for direction-just what I'm looking for. :) She's always had digestive issues, and I still don't know what all she can't handle, but she gets along great on a raw diet. I just got offered close to 100 pounds of meat for free! People around here are so generous.

    I made a mistake in the last post-she was almost 19 weeks, not 17.

    Jinger was 19 weeks yesterday, and her herding instinct is getting stronger and stronger. I can barely wait until she's old enough to start. :)

    We had a guest in our picture this week-Bonny, our Border Collie/Golden Retriever cross.
