On the way home, I picked up two border collies. One of them is a rescue of sorts and will be looking for a nice pet home. One of them will be staying with my friend Molly, who wants to work her on her sheep and have her live as a house dog. So, if you know anyone who wants a lovely BC rescue bitch, about 2 years old, in good health, spayed, let me know!
This is Clare and Bella
Bella is a real beauty
I'll be driving them up to Pennsylvania and dropping them off with their new person this evening. I was just a taxi driver.
I think that deciding who gets to go is the hardest part of having multiple dogs. Today I am headed toward Eastern Virginia to go herding and then to celebrate the 17th birthday of Togey, a very special Border Terrier. Seriously, he's having a party and we're going! There will be sheep and agility and swimming and off-leash walks!
In honor of Togey, I would like to bring 11 yr old Nike and my two terriers as well. But I also want to bring Musket for socialization, and then I have to bring my herding girls (Jubilee, Hunter, Kiva) so they can play with sheep. That makes for a very full truck! But it's doable.
Until you add in the fact that I'm coming home with 2 Border Collies...
