Today we went to Dog Heaven in Ladner. With 10 border collies. That’s right, you heard me. TEN. And for the first time ever, I didn’t have the majority percentage! Today my foster home Hilary had us all beat with Cracker, Bo, Penny, Chance and Gracie.
Bo was adopted from TDBCR. He came with his own stick.
And he will get all up in yo bizness until you throw it for him.
Even if Penny harasses him about his obsession.
Penny was also adopted from TDBCR. She is lovely.
Tweed was miffed that she usurped his status as The Red Dog Present, and snubbed her.
But Piper slapped some sense into him.
“Manners, big oaf!”
“Hey, step off, beeyotch!”
Hilary also brought TDBCR foster Gracie, who I managed somehow to not take a single photograph of. Gracie is staying with Hilary for a week until she goes off to her forever home – she managed to get adopted before she was even available!
She also is fostering my favourite TDBCR rescue boy, Chance, the fella from Grand Forks I picked up last month.
Isn’t he handsome by halves though? Such soulful eyes.
Such a sexy physique
And talented? Whew! He even did some Vaudville for us!
***I interrupt these photo captions to ask you all a Very Important Question***
Why does Jenn torment Piper? I have owned border collies for many years, and it is my experience that frequently one will obsess over another. Briggs used to obsess over my older-than-him border collie Abi. Whatever she did do, he done did as well. Mr. Woo spends half his time pouncing on Piper. Sport went everywhere Tweed went.
But this is different. Jenn does not live with Piper, and she doesn’t want to do what Piper does – she wants to TORMENT her. She seems, actually, hell bent on driving Piper into a frothing, raging psychosis.
TEN dogs with us today, folks. TEN. And Jenn engaged in exactly one activity the entire time. I have no photos of it, but it goes like this:
*Ahem. Jenn Impression*
Look Piper, I have a stick. A stick. You want the stick don’t you? You want it. You totally want it. Come and get it. Get the stick. Here, I’m putting it on the ground and walking away from it. Just walking awa-HAH YOU IDIOT! YOU FELL FOR IT! YOU CAN’T HAVE THE STICK!! The stick is mine! But you want it, don’t you? What are you so mad about? What if I poke you with it? Like this. Hey? Hey? Do you like that? What if I dance with it? Does that bug you? Do you want it? Want the stick? I know you want it. Come get the stick. What are you, some kind of pussy? Oh you’re mad now, are you? HAHAHA that’s funny! Come here and say that to my face! Come here and say it to my face, and get the stick. This stick. This stick right here. Come on, I dare you.
I’ve seen nowt like it. Have you?
