Rock is 2 years old!

Rock (Reece x Jag) turned 2 years old last week. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. I met him when he was 3 weeks old and tried so hard not to pick him. I wanted the one who looked like a mini Jag (Erin's Z now) but when I held Rock he looked straight in my eyes and I could feel him reach right into my heart! He's been there ever since.

He has grown up into a handsome boy with loads of talent. He still acts like a pup at times and still needs lots of miles of work to fully mature but he's got everything he needs to become a great dog. It doesn't hurt that he has to have one of the best personalities ever. He can be a bit of a spaz at times but it's just because he lives life at full throttle. There is never a dull moment with Rock around. My whole family adores this dog and we're hopeful for his future!

Hey Laura,

I was at the El Presidente trial this weekend and happened to snap a shot of Erin's dog ... reminds me a lot of your Jag.

Hmmm ... that link didn't exactly work. Sorry! If you go to www.stockdogging.com, you can see the photos from the trial.

Great pictures Jodi. Thanks. Z does look a lot like Jag.

Oh I'm soooo glad Rock picked you and I got Z. He totally picked me. I really wanted to go to Patrick's a just look and not buy, the old adage you never buy the first horse you look at. Well, I saw him and worked him a little bit and I knew I HAD to have him. There was something that connected. I couldn't ask for a better dog, he's practically perfect for me. We are going to do great things! I'll stop gushing now :)
