Before I got my Border Collie folks warned me about all sorts of 'neurotic' behaviors that some Border Collie can display. Bet is thankfully free of any of these annoying neurotic behaviors, except running in circles or back in forth in front of our pens.
If allowed she will kill hours that way. It's not good for her and it is really hard on the sandy ground in front of the pens, so we'd like to see it stop, but short of locking her in the house all the time have not found a way to make that happen.
Then yesterday while I was doing water buckets I noticed a bunch of activity up by the puppy pen.
With the Tramplings supervising, he dug, raked, placed patio blocks, and shoveled.
Luckily, it passed 'Trampling approval'....
...not so much 'Border Collie approval'...
In fact, she is downright annoyed...
While I shoveled the yard today, she tried running on the patio blocks, gave that up and just poked around the yard like a regular....well.....dog!!
She says her life is ruined.
I think she is being alittle over dramatic.
