NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

More Border Collies!


Two more days until our 3-day agility extravaganza! Peter is finally going to be able to run Skye again, and Max and I will have two shots at that elusive Snooker Q. It's our first outdoor trial of the year, so everyone cross their fingers for no rain. At least not from 7 am to 4 pm or so. :-) Until then, here are a couple more shots of the boys doing their thing!

Is it Friday yet??

Yes, amaaaazing shots. I am crossing my fingers, turning circles three times and sp...wha? Oh yea thats to dispel a curse. Hmm...well, you know what I mean! GOOD LUCK!

Oh how fun! My mother-in-law has a number of border collies and takes a few of them to sheep trials around the country (Wales in September!). Your dogs (and Jack on the side bar) are beautiful!

Ex Libris ~ Thank you!

Biblio Brat ~ Go ahead and do the "dispel the curse" thing! Maybe that's been my Snooker problem all along - a curse! :-)

Trish ~ Max, Skye and Jack thank you! Herding is so cool! We took the boys for a herding instinct test a couple summers ago. Skye, who comes from a herding line, has a natural ability and showed great potential. Max, who comes from agility lines, just thought it was fun to chase the sheep. :-) To herd in Wales would be amazingly cool!

I feel the same about the photos. Love when you post those! I look forward to reading more about this weekend. :)

I tried to get her to take me with her, but no such luck. :) She's actually having some trouble with her sheep right now because of the heat and lack of rain--they have virtually no grass on their ranch right now (Central/West Texas).

Skye is such a fantastic name!

I'm cheering for Skye and Max on Friday. I hope they can hear me!

Good luck for Friday!

J. Kaye ~ Hopefully we can get some new ones this weekend. I'm glad you all like them! Sometimes we need a break from all that reading and pics of book covers.

Trish ~ Could you hide in her suitcase? :-) The weather everywhere seems to be uncooperative. I hope the sheep are all OK in the end. Skye was a rescue dog, and came complete with that great name, though he is sometimes mistaken for a girl with his pretty name and flowing fur. Max is short for Maxwell Smart. I figured a BC should have "smart" in his name somewhere! ;-)

Teddy and Margaret ~ Thank you! I'll tell the boys their fans are with them! :-)
