I'm of the opinion that Bet is pretty happy living here.
She's fed well, plays hard, has great sleeping arrangements and is very loved - but she has always enjoyed heading over to Lisa's for a little 'border collie face time'. Dogs seem to 'know their kind' and in my experience, always enjoy spending time with their own breed.
Today I was heading over to Lisa's for coffee and she extended the invitation to Bet.
For the first time, Bet didn't seem to related to Lisa's Border Collies. In fact, she could have cared less. Eventually Lisa's pack ended up outside and Bet snoozed on the their dog bed soaking up the warmth of a sun beam.
On the way home Bet mentioned that she would like to renounce her 'Border Collie Citizenship'. "Are you sure?", I asked. She nodded her big Border collie ears and emphatically stated that she was putting all that in the past.
I hope she knows what she is doing - but somehow I think she does.
