- 1Here is some more pictures of my adorable border collie. He is such a great dog, and his breed requires he gets "stuff to do/a job"
so i teach him tricks and cues. (if i don't, he goes nutzzzzzz)
He knows over 100 tricks and cues, even can get a beer out of the fridge, and can do that doggie dancing heelwork, like you can see on youtube. Lol, the song we work on this precision heelwork to,
is "Stand By Me" and we have worked out various tricks for some of the lines, like for example,
the line, "if the sky, should ever tumble and fall"
for that line,
my dog will fall over, and roll over and over. HIlarious to watch. We have a couple of tricks we do, for various lines. For the lines, "I won't cry, i won't cry" he sits up in beg position, and holds his paws over his eyes!!Stuff like that,
He is a character, and sure does love learning stuff.
i know, i know, some of you, are probably rolling your eyes, but border collies HAVE TO have stuff to do, stuff to figure out,
they will eat your sofa!! ha ha!! Since we have no sheep, my Buddy learns tricks instead!!
- 1my dog Buddy, sure does love his little toys:
He's cute NOW, but wow, you shoulda seen him when i first met him. Total gangsta, bag of bones, too weak to walk, stunk, covered in urine burns and feces, with SKANKY matted fur that felt like straw, and the vet said he was so so malnourished, it was actually life-threatening. He was taken from a puppy mill that made nat'l news when it was discovered, and Buddy spent first year or more of his life, in a cage, 24/7, as a stud dog in a puppy mill,
not even let out to pee or poop. We thought he was a 'tri-color" border collie for weeks...but, it was just urine stains from living in a cage 24/7.
Buddy had a bad attitude, too, and didn't think much of our species when we first brought him home. Spent the first weeks just glaring at us, and growling if we startled him or tried to touch him. If we carried a broom or anything stick shaped, he RAN as best as he could run, and hid!!!
I just kept raining bits of chicken and telling him, "Wasn't me, Buddy, wasn't me..." My eyes watered a lot those first months.
Buddy has since changed his mind, and loves everyone now. Lovely, lovable, loving dog, just a perfect lil gentlemen, he even does some therapy work in a nursing home.
No mystery why no one wanted HIM!! No wonder his time was up and he was in the death row box...He was one hot mess!!!
now, he is a much loved healthy, strong beautiful dog, with a busy life and a family who thinks he is a piece of sunshine running through our world. He is perfect lil gentleman now, very eager to please, tons of QUIRKS, and very funny dog!
okay! okay!! i'll stop!! Let's see your pets!!Last edit by somenurse on Jan 6, '13
- 1Jan 8, '13 by somenurseWHAT a sweet looking dog, HerringRN!! LOVE it!! Dukie looks like he might have some border collie in him, too, doesn't he? Has a lot of the same markings that border collies have.
Oh, i so so know what you mean about dogs being hard to photograph! I have always wanted a photo of my dog running,
instead, i have a stack of photos of my dog's tail leaving the photo,
or my dog's nose entering the photo....as well as a stack of photos of a patch of grass with no dog at all in the entire photo. Ha ha!!
I have a pal who rocks at dog photography, and she told me, that it helps to sit on the ground, to get better photos. But, yeah, i so hear you, i think photographing dogs is not the easiest thing in the world to do at all!!
