By blog has ‘gone to the dogs!’. I’m a dog lover from way back, so jumped at the opportunity to go to Sumner Beach this morning with a friend and her Border Collie “Jessie”. The border collie breed is well known for being highly intelligent and extremely energetic, and let’s just say Jessie is not the exception to this rule! We stood in the middle of the beach and watched Jessie run non-stop up and down in a circuit (never venturing more than 100 metres from us). She’s about 8 months old, so still really a pup.
Trying to get a good photo was tough – she just moves too fast – and her colouring makes it doubly difficult! I tried ‘dog mode’ and ‘sports mode’ on my digital camera, but neither gave very good shots and reverted to automatic.
Jessie made a bee-line for the one other border collie on the beach (Jessie is in the foreground here, the other collie was about 18 months old and was rescued from a bad situation by her owner – who we got chatting to).
Here’s the other collie looking majestic and very happy (one lucky dog that a very kind man rescued her – he found her tied to a tree in a really bad state – but look at her now!).
Had to take a snap of this wee cutie as well!
