Just because. J.T., our current Top Ninja-In-Training, struts his stuff. At five and a half months old, he's almost old enough to show, and I think he knows it. He's doing his best to live up to his registered name, "Impulse Bad Intentions," and we hope he'll live up to his namesake, Jermain Taylor.
Anyway, at this point we are thrilled with this boy, and so glad we picked him for our "keeper" from his litter. He's bold, outspoken, and just arrogant enough. He self-stacks (sets himself up, as in the showring pose, naturally), is put together according to the breed standard, has a great bite, a gorgeous head, two testicles (hey--it's a concern with boy puppies!), a thick, heavy coat and tight little feet...and moves like a dream. He will be going out with a professional handler in January or February, but we may show him a time or two ourselves between now and then. Or not. (For a similar puppy-fix, in a larger package, go see Erin's boy Happy!)
