Red Border Collie - Gibson

As I told you 
Gibson and I could feel the tugging of 
the full moon this day. 

Aren't Gibson's eyes remarkable!

Blue and beige, just like a husky...beautiful!

I was told poor Gibson had a period in his life 
that wasn't the best.

Tied by a short tether for the longest time.

Needless to say the new parents were appalled and 

I know Gibson is beyond happy now.
I enjoy meeting new friends on the beach.
 If I can make their encounter "a good run and chase",
then I've accomplished my task.
There is a story behind every friend I meet.
I level the playing field very quickly with 
a slight bounce,
a deliberate pounce,
a split second dodge,
a tete a tete run into the water.

Until the next time Gibson!
Let's not make it 6 months like before...wink wink!

  13. Gibson looks like a good beach friend. What a great rescue story. Glad Gibson found a safe home.

  14. Gibson is quite a beautiful friend, I am glad that he was rescued! I'll bet the water was a little cool, eh? I used to know a girl with eyes like his. :-)

  15. Poor Gibson, I can think of nothing more frustrating than for a high energy dog Like a BC to be tied on a short tether. So very good to here he has been rescued from that.
    You are the best therapy dog! Mom calls it "play therapy"!

  16. Gibson is a stunner! I'm not surprised that his new family couldn't resist him!

  18. Gibson is a handsome boy and I'm so happy his tail/tale has a happy ending! :)

  19. Gibson is a handsome dog too. I looked at the first photo and thought "are his eyes blue?" and then you answered my question! I'm glad he has a happy home now.

  20. Do doggies in your town all come in the same color?

  23. I've been having terrible internet problems, and I missed your photographs and stories so much!

    Gibson is supremely handsome with his chocolate fur and amazing eyes. He looks like a barrel of fun too! I'm so glad that he now has humans who take him for fun play time on the beach. He may have been unlucky before but he's very lucky now!

  24. Oh Sophie- Gibson is the perfect friend for you! Such wonderful photos- love seeing you both at play- love that you both love being at the beach. I think Gibson has a crush on you--
