January 25th 1997
soccer (the BEST goalie ever,) chewing on decoy's legs, flossing teeth with sheep wool, sleeping on the human bed when the human is not at home
other dogs not picking up on her personal space issues
rubber ball, tug toys, the neighbor's cat

Barra is my heart dog. She may have flaws but I elect to overlook them ;-) I chose her out of 14 puppies (2 litters) that came in to have their first puppy checkups. I was lucky enough to be assisting the vet with vaccinating and deworming the little monsters, and Barra was the last puppy we examined that day. Must have been something in the air but the minute I saw her I knew I had to have her. I had always loved border collies but had never owned one so I was not going to pass up that sort of opportunity. (Isn't that Puppy Acquisition Rule #1- No Impulse Buying???) Anyway, I firmly believe it was meant to be in spite of the wrong way I went about it! She was put in my lap for a reason. I am completely devoted to my rotten dog, and wouldn 't have it any other way.
Bent Hill Barra- must be the only border collie I know that doesn't like flyball. That's fine with me because I don't know if I could fit it in to the schedule! She has her Advanced Title in AAC agility, Canine Good Citizen certificate (and is a former Therapy dog,) a Brevet in French Ring and of course, the whole sheep thing. I discovered that BOTH of us are far more comfortable training than trialing when it comes to sheepherding, so we just have fun with it. It's a shame that cat-stalking is not a competitive sport....

What I would say to Barra....
~I adore you because of your quirks, not in spite of them. You laugh when I laugh, you're sad when I'm sad, and you are an idiot when I....well, never mind :) Plus, you have a fantastic singing voice.
What Barra would say....
~You know I love ya, mom, but seriously- there's a CAT out there!!!
