Are you starting to notice a trend here? First we had the IG’s Bella, Bailey, Brie, and Beau. And today we have Boomer and Bounce. Hmmm… 🙂
First up is Boomer, who seems to be a very laid back hunk of a guy, who isn’t in a big hurry to get anywhere and was more than happy to hang out and look pretty. He definitely gets the award for the most consistent model…the camera just *loves* him – such a handsome boy!
Bounce, on the other hand, lives on planet Bounce, and thought the idea of having a family portrait was rather ridiculous. To say that she even acknowledged my presence would be a stretch, but I still can’t help but to love her. She crazy, but in an awesome have-to-love kind of way. And it doesn’t hurt that she’s a beauty…even with her crazy long tongue!
Um, Bounce…how do you really feel? 🙂
TicTac is the youngest of the bunch (I think he’s 2) and so it’s understandable why he reminds me of a somewhat awkward teenager. (No offense to TicTac or teenagers – I think we’ve all probably been there!) It was so funny to watch him interact with the other dogs, and most of the time he could be found hanging out in the background (you know, like the really cool teens do). But despite the awkwardness, TicTac is a really sweet, handsome boy who just adores people. Here are a few of my favorites…
I love all of Angelica’s dogs, but there’s just something about Stevie that pulls on my heartstrings. Perhaps it’s his mad frisbee pouncing talent, or his extremely sweet and soulful eyes, or maybe it’s his *the world is mine!* attitude…I don’t know, but I could have easily taken him home (hey, he *does* have spots!). I’m having the hardest time picking favorites from this session, but here are just a few of my Stevie favs!
Since I train and compete in agility, I get to watch a lot of Border Collies and I have a ton of respect for their intelligence and athleticism on an agility course. But to see a group of them interact with each other at home – it’s downright entertaining. All of the circling…and stalking…I think I could probably watch them for hours without getting bored! Out of Angelica’s three Border Collie boys, I think Zoomie was probably the least interested in my presence. It’s not that he isn’t sweet or friendly, but he only had eyes for one thing – the FRISBEE.
Even though I couldn’t compete with the *frisbee*, I still love Zoomie. He’s such a cool dog and I especially enjoyed watching him and his mom show off one of their tricks – I think it’s officially called the “dog stall”? There’s no way I could do this trick with one of my dogs unless I wanted a broken back (or face!) so I was very impressed!
Here’s Zoomie…oh and TicTac (the tourist) makes another guest appearance!
Border Collies are slowly taking over my blog…and I love it! Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure of hanging out with three Border Collies and a Papillon. To say that I had a really fun time would be an understatement! Seriously, these guys were all great to photograph, and I can only imagine the endless entertainment that they provide. Fun times! I’ve got a lot of favorites, but here are just a few…more coming soon!
First up is TicTac…
Zoomie in the front, TicTac hanging out in the back. TicTac is like one of those random tourists that you find in the background of all of your vacation pics.
Stevie…I just love this guy!
And last, but certainly not least, Bella. This girl has TONS of personality and clearly holds her own in a group of silly Border Collie boys!
Rumble and Keegan look so much alike that I wondered if I would be able to tell them apart – turned out to be much too easy! All I had to do is find the eyes that look like a child’s on Christmas morning! Seriously, Rumble is so animated and his expressions make me smile. He just recently made his agility debut and I’m really looking forward to seeing him at trials – I have no doubt that he’ll be a star just like his big brother Keegan!
I was going to save my Keegan and Rumble images for another day, but was afraid that if I didn’t post at least one picture, I might end up with two unhappy Border Collies on my doorstep tomorrow…
