I love border collies. Their intensity, energy, loyalty and intelligence simply amazes me. In a previous post I introduced my love of these amazing canine companions, but I have failed to update everyone on how our very own border collie puppy, Oreo has become a really important part of our family.
And here she is! All grown up!
Do I remember those puppy days?
Remember? Will I ever forget?
She was into everything.
Nothing was off limits.
But who could be mad at such a contrite cutie?
Whenever you hear tell a border collie has energy,
whatever you may imagine that energizer level might be,
just double it in your mind.
Hey, go ahead and triple it.
If a border collie is not kept busy, mischief is in store.
But lucky for us we soon discovered our dog LOVES soccer.
She’s the best goalie in our house!
She’s great at headers.
She even scores!
Call me a crazy dog mom, but I believe she understands the concept of goals.
And after the game, a good old cool down is in order.
What do you mean star soccer players can’t nap on the couch?????
Don’t worry! I wasn’t napping.
I’ve been herding flies just for you.
Hope everyone enjoys the finals of the World Cup today. I’m not sure if Oreo will be shouting for Argentina or Germany. May the best team win.
