Funny thing is, I used to raise border collies. Maybe it's true what
they say - people turn into their dogs. RRrrrrfff!
I just came home from taking Tessie to the Groomer. She is a Border
Collie/Spaniel mix. She is nippy (she hates most men except me, of course), to
strangers and yet loves other dogs. She is willful and yet obedient when she is
"guided" with a firm grip on her leash. She loves snacks and when one
attempts to leave the kitchen without offering a treat to her she will block the way
and try to herd the giver of all good things to the treat box. Clever
little thing! She has met some of the famous people in the neighborhood (Kofi
Anan and his wife, Sigourney Weaver, and others) but doesn't know of their fame
-- only that they are kind and speak with gentle voices to her (always
appreciative because she is so cute). I have tried to get her to "hike" along the
East River and she does walk until she gets tired and then she just collapses
and lies on the ground until she gets ready to trudge on.
Hey! I am just like her!
