I have to tell you, this will be a long story. So, pull up a chair and get ready! Mom and I went to 1000 Acres (my favorite place in the whole world) the other day. AND yesterday. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Here I am–just little ol’ me.I was a bit bored–my buds Caly and Tucker weren’t there. So, any stick in a storm, so they say….I tried to stir up some action, but something was missing. UNTIL…
I rounded a corner and there she was! Olive. Another Australian Kelpie/Border Collie.
I’ve always heard that when you meet another of your breed, you just know it. The chemistry was there!We both love the water! Sticks (or balls, if we had one). Doing “little dog” (that’s what Mom calls it when we go into the herding stance). Just being dogs. And having fun!
I think I stayed in the water longer–it was cold, let me tell you! But when there’s someone throwing sticks, what do you do? Mom made me get out though. She said it was a bit too cold and I was shivering. Nothing that a little running will take care of!So, we played a little tug-a-war in the mud. Can you tell which is me? We mosey’d on a bit up the trail together. Running and chasing and playing. Then we had to go home 😦
But! Back we went yesterday! This time with Tucker & Caly. The water had really come up in just a week–this is the same pond we were at with Olive and there was no way we could have gotten to the trail we took last week. So, there I was. In the water again!
What else is new? Right?
I rounded a bend, and there she was! Olive!!Here we both are. Olive hadn’t been in the water yet, so it was a dead give-away. I think I was a little muddy…Tucker was eyeing Mom’s treat bag :).You ask? Dirty? Where would little ol’ me get dirty?Happy Muddy Monday everyone!!
And a very Happy New Year–may it be filled with mud….
