Conker my Shetland Sheepdog, ready for the GoY Winter Wellie Olympics


Conker my Shetland Sheepdog, ready for the GoY Winter Wellie Olympics

Conker winning the Best Six Legs class at a charity dog show. He carries two pairs of furry wellies, slung across his back.
My ankles are not oval ~ my red wellies are a weird shape. Lol. In the hot weather I wear the same boots, but with very short shorts instead of trousers. :o)

8 Dec, 2008

 

Conker is delighted with your comments :o)
Can you see behind his back feet what a very huge tail he has ?
He loves to be groomed, so it's easy to keep him looking smart. :o)

Congartulations and a cuddle Conker:)

Scotkat ~
Conker sends a cuddle back to you. He's wearing his rain hat.
Will get photos of his crochet bonnet for you when my friend is out of hospital. So kind of you to offer to help with the bonnet. xxx

8 Dec, 2008

 

Almost did not recognize Conker with all the tartan garb. Here is a BIG (((HUG))) from across the sea to Conker and his master from the boss and me. Oh darn I can't get out of the rhyming thing. Cheers!

8 Dec, 2008

 

Conker likes hugs
From so many miles
He sends lots of thanks,
And sweet Sheltie smiles.

On, no, me, too ! Can't stop the rhyming thing ...

8 Dec, 2008

 

Oh, my...how attentive he is....beautiful picture, TT....eagerly awaiting more..

8 Dec, 2008

 

Skippy ~ thank you.

I've just remembered that this photo was taken in the garden of a large house. The grass was very short ~ lovely to walk on.

For the Best 6 Legs class, the judge often asks dog and owner to walk across the ring and back. Conker is very good and keeps his boots and hat in place.

For very hot weather, we have different costumes where we are tennis players, and Conker carries his own racquet. Lol.

At some dog shows, the grass is knee-high and very difficult to negotiate. When the grass is tall, the little Dachshunds and Yorkies disappear in the undergrowth.:o)

Proud of you Conker...well done ,big bone Percy

8 Dec, 2008

 

Conker says hi to Percy :o)

8 Dec, 2008

 

Conker's a Darling, The way he looks at you reminds me of my (now gone) staffie Sophie, noo they dont look alike :) just the look of love in there faces, cant imitate that, of course i felt the same about her ..

8 Dec, 2008

 

Hi Dee ~
Did you ever dress up Sophie ?
Terriers look really cute when wearing hats etc.
Sophie sounds like she was a real character.

8 Dec, 2008

 

No TT, maybe at xmas id try to put my angel headband on her :))) but she didn't like it, she was a great dog, easy to train, also had her mother, Tammy, she was more the hubs dog, Fantastic dogs, now i have a border Collie, offered to watch her for a few weeks, 11 years a go, hahahaha, she only knew 2 commands, to catch flie's and drink out of a Lager can :) i trained her to the basics, so i had 3 dogs at once. Mad or what :)

8 Dec, 2008

 

No, not mad Dee.
And Border Collies are super dogs. :o)

8 Dec, 2008

 

yet again another great doggie pic

8 Dec, 2008

 

Conker woofs hello to Lassie up in the Orkneys :o)

8 Dec, 2008

 

Such holiday spirit this shot imparts...you must be quite tall....santa....the way Conkers it looking way up there...maybe you are tall to Conkers anyway.... cute shot.

9 Dec, 2008

 

Well done Conker. Such a sweetie!! (((BIG HUG))) from me here in BC and lots of woofs and licks from Molly and Susie.

My old dog was a 50/50 sheltie / border collie. She was such a lovely dog. The size of a border collie but the colouring of a sheltie. You can just see her head in my avatar photo.

9 Dec, 2008

 

This is so cute, TT... I showed this to Odie and Popie and said, "see how nice this dog stays, not running around crazy and barking and being unruly!" They were very humbled and Odie put on his christmas bling to try to make it up to me. Those two really need to step it up a notch!

9 Dec, 2008

 

Hello to you trio above from across the pond.
Conker sends greetings to Flash the horse. Conker would definiltely look up a long way to him ! :o)
Gilli's pretty dog on her avatar has definite Sheltie colours ~ really lovely.

Hugs and woofs to Molly, Susie, Odie and Popie.
Conker invites them all to join in with his trick routines ~ and Flash, too. Shall we start with the gardening tricks ? Lawn-mowers ready ? All together..... PUSH .. Lol. :o)

9 Dec, 2008

 

Well done TT and Conker

9 Dec, 2008

 

Hello Milky ~
You won't have time for gardening over Christmas. I've heard just how many young grandchildren are going to be under your roof.
Enjoy :o)

9 Dec, 2008

 

I have two dogs too....Phoebe &
Sofie...they are lazy oafs and said they would rather sleep right now...Phoebe thinks her keeping watch on the roof is good enough...no lawn mowing tricks for her Highness.....Sofie...would love to do anything to please but has a bad hip so will watch happily...Flash pulls things so could pull yor garden cart...but does not like the idea of loud machinery so would probably kick and buck and destroy the whole place so he had might not better take part at all....I believe your Conkers has the corner on the market for intelligence and tricks... very good Conkers..!!very good!

9 Dec, 2008

 

Conker sends best wishes to Phoebe and Sofie.
Catfinch ~ when your dogs stop snoozing, please pass on the message.
Next year I'll try to make a blog of Conker's raking, mowing and measuring the plot for his vegetable crop. :o)

9 Dec, 2008

 

Hello Conker, what a sweetie you are. x

9 Dec, 2008

 

Hello Pottygardener ~
hugs from Conker xxx

9 Dec, 2008

 

Well done Conker and TT ..

9 Dec, 2008

 

Hello Janette ~
Conkers says Hi. :o)

9 Dec, 2008

 

got to be a sure winner

10 Dec, 2008

 

Hi Mickbmw ~
Conker hopes Bill & Ben are coping with the winter weather :o)

10 Dec, 2008

 

What a sweetie Conker is, and his mommy has trained him very well, of course...

10 Dec, 2008

 

Conker sends woofs across to Chummy and Scrunchion :o)

10 Dec, 2008

 

You can't beat unconditional love .

11 Dec, 2008

 

Smalljaw ~ Good comment.
Conker doesn't have a hidden agenda :o)
I don't use titbits when he performs his trick routines.
He does it all purely for enjoyment.
I'm glad you like the photo.
Wags and woofs from Conker. :o)

11 Dec, 2008

 

Terratoonie,

He's all ready for a sleigh ride. LOL

12 Dec, 2008

 

I don't think Molly will be joining Conker with his lawnmower. Unfortunately she won't be able to reach the handle. Unless, of course, she stands on Susie's back. No, Susie will get upset if she does that. Perhaps she could ride on top of one and bark directions?

12 Dec, 2008

 

Hi Delonix1 ~
Conker wonders if he might be warmer in California.
He could wear his tennis outfit down there. :o)

Gilli ~ Molly and Susie seem like they know exactly how to make the best of their doggie lives with great teamwork. Lol.

12 Dec, 2008

 

Very nice picture, Conker is a beautiful dog.

13 Dec, 2008

 

Terratoonie,

Conker may enjoy the weather...as it has still been warm here, averaging around 76 degrees F/ 25 degrees C the last week, however, it is suppose to cool down quite a bit this coming week with rain which we so badly need to help our extreme drought.

13 Dec, 2008

 

Hello Aleyna ~
Yes, I'm lucky to own such a beautiful dog as Conker.

Seems like Conker would enjoy the Californian weather with Delonix1.
Rain water falling on a Sheltie's coat always improves the look and texture of the hair. Some people spray their Sheltie's coats with rain water. :o)
I hope California gets its much-needed rainfalls.

13 Dec, 2008

 

is this our mascot conker it wood suit him he is lovely

14 Dec, 2008

 

Hello Mary ~
I'm sure Conker would be happy to be the canine mascot. :o)
Nice to see you again on GoY.
I hope you are well. :o)

17 Apr, 2009

 

Hello Lujean ~
Conker the Sheltie says hi to you.
It's wonderful that you are now working with homeless animals.
Well done. :o)

17 Apr, 2009
