Retrieving balls, frizbies, etc. Go for a ride. Lying on pillows. Running around outside while carrying big sticks.

Having to come in the house. She loves being outside.

Favorite Toy:
A thick cotton leadrope that she drags around outside.

Favorite Food:
Chicken & rice. She gets a small ice cream cone once a week. She closes her eyes as she licks the ice cream out, then eats the cone.

Favorite Walk:
Down the road with me.

Best Tricks:
When we open the casement window to drop a cracker to a visiting squirrel, Amber sticks her head out the window and drops her toy on the waiting squirrel. She also likes to eat her food off of a fork.

Arrival Story:
I've been making trips to our local shelter since Kira passed away, just kind of looking. I didn't know if we would get an adult dog or a puppy. I really don't care for the puppy thing, but with our cats having run of the house I was concerned about bringing an adult dog (and we wanted a large dog) into the house. I was visiting the sheter to check on a cat that I had brought in when the director of the shelter came in with a beautiful collie puppy, asking me what I thought of her and if this could be the one. She was 12 weeks old and well-mannered. The director said a man had her but didn't want her any more so he brought her to the shelter. So Amber came home with me.

Amber plays with all of her toys and makes sure they are scattered all over the living room. She likes to play tug-of-war and she likes to fetch the ball and return it to me. She's good at catching a ball on the fly and I think she would be good at catching frizbees, but I can't throw them properly for her to catch. She's always carrying a toy around the house. Outside, she finds large tree branches and carries them around. Amber is a very good watch dog, nothing gets past her. Every car or truck that goes by, she races along the fenceline. Our house is on an acre in the country, on a corner lot, so she races from one end, around the corner, to the other end. She sure gets her exercise. If I'm sitting on the floor, Amber faces me, puts a paw on my shoulders and pulls herself to me to touch her head to mine -- a collie cuddle! I take Amber to the nursing home to visit with the residents. We visit everyone in their rooms. Everyone knows Amber; one bark from her and the residents call it "Amber Alert"! Without ever having any special training, Amber blends right in, most of the time working off-leash. She walks between wheelchairs and walkers, never bumping or pushing, head lowered to show her friendliness. Everyone wants to be visited by Amber. ~~~~Amber Highstockings of Whispering Trees~~~~

I've been tagged by Sylvie. I have to list 7 facts about myself and then tag 7 of my friends.

The 7 Facts:

1. I'm trying to catch that old opossum that keeps coming in our yard at night. I don't know what I'm going to do when I catch him, but I'll worry about that when it happens.

2. After everyone goes to sleep, I jump up on the couch and sleep there for the night. No one knows I do this, hee hee.

3. I play with our cat, Apollo. He has a good sense of humor and is a good egg.

4. When I was little I would get car sick, but I don't anymore. I can't wait to go for a ride!

5. My Collie group -- Holy Collies -- say I'm the old-fashioned, English type Collie.

6. I like to wrestle with Mom

7. I love my rope (toy) and will carry it all around the yard.

My 7 friends who I tagged are:

Rusty #795060
Mrs. Dolly Parton #801758
Skye Bella #915586
Reggie #633966
Emma #658660
Dart #853720
