First an apology: I hate boasting and I realise that I’m being hugely hypocritical as this is boasting but I’m just so pleased!

There was an online Collie show. I don’t show my dog and don’t intend to however the had novelty categories one of which was best action shot. I got first prize. My border collie just loves jumping into water and this photo captures his enthusiasm perfectly.

I’m sorry to boast but I do love my dog and know there are lots of dog people on here who will hopefully understand!

grin Fantastic and the best prize to win the action shot and dogs doing what they enjoy. He is loving life!

Brilliant. And what a great idea online dog show.
I’m sure he might want a small treat even if he doesn’t exactly need one ?

Thank you for your lovely messages!

His prize for doing well, of it was his choice, would be for me to take him to water and throw some more balls/stones/seaweed/sticks for him to chase. I think chasing balls etc ranks ahead of food in my dog’s world! (We is a first for me as precious dogs have been very food driven!)

I do so love border collies, if I had the time I'd get another. Lovely picture.

@Tootletum - aren’t they the most endearing dogs? So so loving yet so spirited. I cannot believe the difference mine has made to my life. He’s only 22 months too. But yes any dog needs time - I’ve had to wait 25 years to get a dog when finally I had the lifestyle to accommodate him.

Thank you for everyone’s kind comments and for allowing me to boast. It’s really made me smile.
