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!
