The Borders

Birdie and the borders
Our Birdie (left) and her Border Collie buddies! It is amazing to watch them romp through the fields.
They are a highly entertaining pack. They play and chase and run soooo fast!
I can't believe they sat still for a picture!

I'm quite a cat person, myself, but I LOVE the exuberance of dogs chasing each other around! Such full-on joy... they look quite happy in the photo. If ever a dog were to come live with me, I think it might be a Border Collie....

A tired dog is a good dog! Yes, they are all super smart and we are SO lucky that they live nearby and can all play together.

Ah, so beautiful! My family just started volunteering w/ border collie rescue. It wasn't a breed we knew much about before, but now I have to stop every time I see their classic black and white. :D What a great picture!

Does Birdie heard you? My family had a part Boarder and she used to run crazy circles around us if were spread out in a field. So fun!

Clare Elsaesser said...

oops, I meant Border, though I guess she was a boarder too.

ahhh I can just imagine my border collie 'sarah' in with this bunch.... there's nothing she likes better than to run madly over the fields!

Birdie is a rescue and would have gone to a shelter if not for a woman who fostered the young pups. Sara it's so great that your family is volunteering with border collie rescue. Wonderful.

Clare, Birdie doesn't herd me, but she runs at warp speed! Two of her border collie pals are working dogs and they herd sheep. : )
