Luc's Photos: 1997–1998

Luc & Tie

Chasing the sheep
Luc likes to run very fast when chasing the sheep. Hopefully, he'll learn he doesn't need to – and I can get better pictures!
Herding decisions
Go to mom, or chase the sheep? A tough decision to make.
Herding clinic instructor Joe Kapelos has a talk with Luc about staying with him when told to.
Sharp criticism
Luc intently watches the other dogs herd, often offering his own commentary on their style and ability.
Growing Sheep
Herding clinic organizer Barb Woods denies the rumor that watering sheep poop in sawdust will grow sheep.
Sheep at night
The sheep decide it's safer by Derek than Libbye & Luc
Luc waits patiently for the command to go get the sheep.
Packers fan
Despite Luc's best efforts, the Pack still lost on MNF.
Walk on Libbye
Luc brings the sheep out of the corner, and the sheep try to trip up Libbye.
Border Collie impersionation
Luc does his Border Collie impersonation by trying to crouch while herding.
Harass the cat
Luc enjoys his favorite pastime around the house – harassing our cat, Phoebe.
Luc would like to know what's happening on your side of the computer screen.

From left to right, Janet Boren and Rion, Linda Robey and Hunter, Derek and Jean-Luc and Libbye Miller and Quazar. This photo was taken at the Louisville Cluster in March, 1998, where the boys did very well. And, yes, it was as cold out as it looks.
Cute Look
Luc shows off his Cute Look™ while Kristina holds him for a photo, also at the Louisville Cluster.
Puppy chases sheep
Luc chases Cowboy, Speck and Goatboy around the round pen in an early herding lesson. Luc was awarded his HIC by Joe Kapelos on November 14, 1997 at Nashville Dog Training Club's Herding Clinic in Lebanon, Tennessee.
Look pitiful
It seemed like a long winter without any shows, so our elder statesman Zowie took Luc under his paw and gave him a lesson in being cute enough to get let in the house.
Luc and Rion in Knoxville

A pleasant fall evening to snuggle with a squirmy puppy.
Cute Puppy
Isn't he the cutest puppy ever?
A puppy in the hand is worth two in the bush...
More cute puppy pics. He doesn't carry his tail like this, though, now.
Jean-Luc – Puppy
Tiny sleeping puppy.
Tail up, head up, proud as can be, Luc gets ready to go home to his new owners.
Luc's mother Lyra shows that she could be in the ring at this very moment if it weren't for this silly gaggle of puppies who want to nurse.
