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!

Happy Birthday, Skye!



Our Skye-man is five years old today! Skye is our rescue Border Collie and the "serious" one of the two. His favorite activities are agility lessons (but only if Daddy is running him), getting squirted with the garden hose, sheep herding, and lying in the grass scoping the neighborhood for anything that may need to be rounded up.





Happy Birthday, Skye!!

Happy Birthday, Skye. I love the close ups. You can almost see their personality, can't you?

zetor said...

Happy Birthday Skye hope there are some treats for you today.
Lezlie I see from the previous post you've succumbed to Miss Plaidy , looking forward to your reviews!

Nymeth said...

He's gorgeous. Happy birthday!

Lezlie said...

Bermudaonion, Anna & Nymeth ~ Thank you! He is a beautiful boy. And his fur is just as soft as it looks!

Lisa ~ Skye's every mood is definitely reflected in his face. He actually looks intellectual when he's all serious.

Zetor ~ A historical/royal fiction fan can hold out only so long against Jean Plaidy. :-)

Happy Birthday Skye!

(I just quickly skimmed your other posts- I hope this week is better and that Peter is recovered soon.)

Lezlie said...

Hi, Lisa! This week has been great and Peter is feeling much, much better. He's even taking Skye out herding tomorrow for the first time in months. Thanks for asking!!

Skye is soooooo adorable. Happy Birthday. My little Mystery's birthday was yesterday..6 years. She is a greyhound. I love border collies. I had a rough collie when about 20 years ago. Loved her.

Aw! Hope he has a happy birthday and gets lots of good treats and new toys!

Lezlie said...

Wisteria ~ Tell Mystery Happy Birthday from us! We thought about getting a rescue greyhound, but once we decided to try our hand at agility, we decided on Border Collies. I think greyhounds are great!

Ladytink ~ Even better than treats and toys for Skye, he gets to go sheep herding today. Nothing makes him happier!

Happy Birthday!

Lezlie said...

Serena ~ Skye says, "Woof!", which I believe means, "Thank you!" Or it might mean, "It's time to play with the garden hose again", but I'm not certain. :-)

I love those eyes. All the love, and the interest in the world is right there. I'm going to talk about this when I finally do a book report on Jane's Parlour which I'm reading right now, but I'll tell you now. A dog in the book, pub. 1937, is given a bunch of chocolates for his birthday because he loves them. My dad always gave our dog a chocolate buttercream every day they were both alive. Dog lived to be 12. I don't know when or why this whole thing about chocolate for dogs happened. What treat did Mr Skye have on his special day day?? (it's hot here today and that snow looks very appealing to me!)

Lezlie said...

Nan ~ That is really interesting. Apparently there is something in chocolate (and grapes, too) that can be very dangerous to dogs, but I'm not clear on what it is. All I know is that if our trainer tells us it's bad, I don't do it. :-)

Skye got to go sheep herding for his birthday. For him, that is the most exciting thing in the world!

Sorry I'm late but Happy Birthday Skye, you gorgeous guy! A big hug from Auntie Dar!

Dar! Skye has been wondering where you were. He hopes your migranes are getting better and sends big kisses to assist. :-)
