Arrival Story:
Rook came to us as "Sailor" from Border Collie Rescue. The first night we met him, though very adorable, he had some aggression issues that needed to be worked through. He's not the frisbee dog companion to his brother Skyler that we hoped he would be. But he is very intellegent, sweet, eager to please and quick to learn. He knows how to be really cute when he needs to be so he can work his way into your heart. To get him to focus his energy we've started him in a agility classes. He's taken to it like it was his 2nd nature. He loves to be the center of attention!

Bio:
Since his arrival, he's really come into his own. Agility has helped him with is confidence and he's even started catching an occasional frisbee (as long as the grass isn't wet and the frisbee isn't dirty). He still has a few bad habits, like wanting to chase bicycles and an occassional car when we take him on walks, but we're working through those. He certainly misses Kelsey, as she was the only pup in the house that would play with him, so he's now fixated on Mom and follows me everywhere I go. He and Woodie have become pals though.

Dang we hate these things! But it seems another round of tag is making it's way around dogster, BOL! ;) I was tagged by my darling girl Roxy from Virginia.

Here are the rules:
I think every pup knows the basic tag rules, but because it’s Thanksgiving time, there is a change to the rules. I get to tell ya about 7 things that I am thankful for and then tag 7 pals and tell them about it with a pmail or a rosette. Then those pups get to write in their diary, tag and notify 7 pals, and on it goes....
Seven things I’m thankful for:

1.) I am thankful for my mom - I love her. (I love Dad too, but Mom is really cool)

2.) I am thankful that NC Border Collie Rescue saved me from my imminent execution and I ended up in Virginia where my family rescued me 5 years ago this month.

3.) I am thankful for trips to PA to see my Grammy & Bob!

4.) I am thankful that I get to stay at my friend Zed's (and Toohey's) house when Mom & Dad go away!

5.) Did I mention I am thankful for my mom - I love her!

6.) I am thankful that feeding time comes twice a day (I'd be more thankful if it came more than twice a day and I was an only pup)

7.) I am thankful that I get to sleep at Mom's feet every night. Did I mention that I love her?

I've been tagged by Pocky!

The Rules: Dogs who are tagged need to write down in their own diary 7 random facts about themselves and these rules! Then you need to choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names in your diary, too. Don't forget to leave these tagged dogs a note that they have been tagged and need to read your dairy to check the rules!

Here are 7 things you may or may not know about me

1. I came to Mom & Dad from Border Collie rescue. They got me out of a shelter in North Carolina. I was on death row there.
2. I LOVE and adore my Mom.
3. I do not like loud noises, thunder storms or motorcycles
4. I do not like to get my feet wet!
5. I'm on the small side of the Border Collie breed - only 35 lbs.
6. I have no front teeth! (Mom & Dad guess I tried to chew my way out of a wire cage or fence)
7. I'm the laziest Border Collie known to man! I'd rather sleep next to Mom than chase anything (well, except when those pesky squrrels run across the overhead power lines!)

The pups I will tag are:

1. Jan
2. Terra
3. William
4. Mihkoa
5. Lord Chesterfield of Windsor
6. Apollo
7. Ms. Texas Belle

 

WOW - What a great day!

Today was the annual Canine Games in Alexandria! It more fun than agility class! I could say hi to all kinds of dogs and I got to do some obsticle stuff. I didn't win any medals this year though! Skyler took them all! Other than getting my feet muddy (which I DON'T like to do) it was a FUN Day. I wanna do it again!
