Shelby...my Cuz from Alberta!

I got the greatest surprise last week when
I got to meet Shelby on P.E.I.
She had been there vacationing since mid-August
and I can't believe she didn't call me to come over sooner.
No matter,
once we locked eyes
on my ball 
we were off to the races!
Border Collies 
like 
to run
to drop the ball
to circle
and
retrieve
forever and ever!

This was fine with me
'cos I love to do pretty much the same thing
only with a Maritime flavour instead.
~~~A rest in between~~~
lol
Shelby was so fast,
that I couldn't get
a close up
that was
clear.
Oh, well,
I sure enjoyed 
learning 
Shelby's techniques
and
trust will
remember them
next summer.

  5. Hi Sophie girl- love these photos of you and your new friend. So she kept you running your pretty legs off! Looks like you had a great time. I loved seeing the photos from PEI on Jim's blog. We visited there and loved it.

    Hugs to you pretty girl-

  8. Shelby looks like a very expressive and interesting friend. Any dog that can hang onto a ball like that with such gusto must be fascinating. Glad you had fun with her:)

  18. What a grand time you two had together. You need to try and convince your Dads that you need an at home dog friend of your very own.
