    I described our Odor Recognition Test on another thread, but I forgot to relay this funny part. The running order is determined by the folks running the ORT, so Eli ended up going first. When he came back, our instructor was laughing and my hubby looked a bit embarrassed. Turns out during his run, Eli caught sight of himself in the full length mirrors in the room. He stopped dead, appearing to admire himself. He was not scared or aggressive with the mirror image as some dogs she has seen.

    She said "Oh, yes there I am, looking mighty fine if I do say so myself!" He got back to business pretty quickly, correctly alerting the box in about 23 seconds total, but she said it was the funniest thing. :ROFLMAO:

    That's hilarious! Finnie does the same thing whenever he passes a mirror, my trainer says 'he thinks there's another dog, he doesn't know its himself '. I say he does know its himself, he's just vain!

    Well, he needs to stop and admire a good looking sheltie when he sees one. Especially if it is himself.

    So funny - that your Sheltie is responding to mirrors
    - and not least your interpretation :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Minnie doesn't care.
    - Fortunately, she doesn't get scared to see herself :lol:
