4 Thoughts to “The Baaaaa-studs 2009”

    Oh, Moon-Howler, you hit me right in the heart. I don’t know about that strange, speeded-up video; but I have been to Scotland and witnessed sheep dog trials. There is, in my opinion, no more beautiful animal on the face of this earth than a Border Collie — smart, fast, dedicated, loyal, a “work ethic” beyond comprehension. We have one in our family. She has never seen a sheep, but you can tell that for which she was bred. When the small grandchildren start to get rambunctious in their play and games, she begins to herd them like they were a flock. And chasing after a tennis ball or anything else you throw? She won’t quit until you are forced to flee elsewhere. Sometimes she goes down into our basement when she is visiting and actually searches out the tennis ball, comes back up, and lays it in my lap, then sits and waits for me to throw it. If I hold up the tennis ball, she stares at it eternally with those “hypnotic eyes”, moving those eye only when the ball moves. When I throw it and she fetches, she comes back, lays down in front of me, and nudges the ball back to me with her nose. I have never seen a dog like that in my life.

  2. I had one also. Fabulous dogs! I wouldn’t get one again though. I live on too small of a lot. She ran up and down the fence line wanting to play with the kids. She needed to live on a farm and herd sheep. You have hit the nail right on the head with your description of the noble border collie? Have you ever read Nop’s Trials?

  3. LMAO!!!! OMG, that was awesome!

  4. I think that is a very well produced fake, but it’s highly entertaining none the less.
