DOB: November 21, 2016
What can I say about this boy. From the time he was just a wee puppy in the whelping box, he made it clear we had a connection and that he was here to stay. Laser focus, ready for anything at the drop of a hat, open and kind to all other beings and so much heart. And crazy athletic! Grit was and is everything I'd hoped for from Proof's last litter. There is nothing I've asked of him that he hasn't been willing to do. We started out with strong foundations for sports, mostly flyball and disc and a touch of agility, but I quickly changed gears when he was about a year old and decided to dive headfirst into learning about sheep herding. Grit was sent off to training with Norm Close for four months and returned with a solid understanding of all the basics. On sheep, and like most things he does in life, he mostly works in fast forward, and he was not the easiest dog for me to begin with because my brain didn't compute fast enough to keep up most of the time. Needless to say, we fumbled our way through things and have managed to put a few novice trials under our belt. If we never did anything competitive again, I'd still love this dog more than words can say. He is as loyal and devoted as they come and makes me smile every day.
