In the field behind the house, in the evening light, the intensity of Joni's gaze as she waits for the blue ball is typically border collie.
In a previous posting, where we talked about a very cold and snowy walk with Joni, our friend Ursula asked to see a photograph of how she looked at the end of her walk. We were out for 2 hours and the wind was blowing the snow swirling around the fields. Joni never seemed to mind as long as we kept throwing her toy.
So here she is, Ursula waiting for you to throw her a blue ball! You can bring Mira along with you, though she might find it a bit cold!
She took to it like a … border collie to sheep herding! Covered in mud at the end of the afternoon, she slept in the car on the way home and was tired for almost 2 days afterwards. Tired, but so happy.
A friend of her breeder’s helped us to get her into it and supplied the expertise and the sheep. She said that Joni has a great natural ability.

I think she spoils that dog!
Joni loves the snow and, at the moment after all of our snowfalls this winter,when she runs through some areas of the garden the snow is well over her head. Under the trees it is more sheltered and she comes up for breath. Her puppy hood is going so fast, she will soon be grown, so we have to make the most of this time.
A border collie pup is always intense about everything she plays with. This time it was her blue ball. And here she was willing me to put down my camera and play with her. She is 10 weeks old now.
