The first day she is with us we dragged her to the river for a picnic & some river dog fun!
Have you ever tried to have a picnic with nine border collies? We believe in baptism by fire. Amy learned how to protect her food from three younger hungrier brothers - she can handle a couple of Border Collie puppies.
Bug was determined to get some of Amy's chicken.
Her eyes never left Amy's greasy fingers.
Ranger and Bonnie were drawn to Amy like moths to a flame...chicken is a heady lure.
All of Vicki's dogs have very good manners. I will refrain from commenting on our dogs manners - lets change the subject shall we?
When Amy was done eating she walked along side the river with the dogs - so we could finish stuffing our faces.
Blitz and Bonnie are waiting for their wood (uhhn.. that didn't sound right did it?)
Actually, Blitz is waiting for wood, Bonnie is waiting for Blitz to move so she can pounce on him.
Everyone decided they were tired of Ranger always stealing the stick. He has been a bully and it is time for reckoning.
Every time Ranger got the stick - someone took it from him. Apparently they all decided that the stick needed to return to the person...rather than run up and down the river in Rangers mouth like a lunatic.
YES! Doodle and Beth orchestrated another stick take over! The jubilation on Beth's face is obvious.
Blitz took advantage of an opportunity to relieve Ranger of the stick yet again - this time waiting for him to drop it while he was shaking - then quickly dashed in and snatched it!
Ranger is surrounded. Border Collie patience runs thin quickly.
Ranger grew increasingly frustrated. He started taking his anger out on those around him. Time out time for Ranger.
Poor Ranger....without wood.
Every where he went his assailants followed.
Then the fun came to a screeching halt when Ranger finally made it to shore with his stick. He dropped it at John's feet...then lifted his leg and peed on it.
Poor John...he had no idea that Rangers aim was that bad.
