Day 298: Collie


A  sweet young border collie showed up on our farm the other day. He stayed the night on our welcome mat overnight but I guess finally went home when he got hungry.

He was intact and had only been taught a couple of commands. He made up for his ignorance with enthusiasm.

I called him ‘boy’ or ‘you-dog’ because I know he had a home. He was sporting a collar.

Kit had just been stalking about wanting another working dog for he farm. Kit likes Australian cattle dogs, but it was too conveniently timed not to laugh about.

Kit said we might get a working pup this fall so he can spend more time working with it. Exciting!
