This is Meg, and I met her while out “On Call” with a vet.
When we arrived to see Meg’s old goat friend, Meg was in the house, and came out when her owner did. She spotted me straight away, and came and sat beside me, demanding storkes and looking at me like this:
How could I resist giving that a stroke? Really?
So, while the vet was examining the goat, I stood and stroked the dog, Meg. She kept putting her head up like a queen, because I was scratching just the right spot. After about ten minutes of constant attension, she wandered off… only to return with a stick! Who knows where she got it from, but she dropped it at my feet, and I threw it. She returned it. I threw it agian. She returned it and dropped it at my feet. I was very impressed, since, for some unknown reason, all of my dogs refuse to fetch… and return. After Meg had retrieved the stick about twenty times, I got mu camera out and started snapping. She was very easy to photograph because she stayed still.
The reason for her stillness is that she watches Mr. Stick like a hawk, and refuses to stop. Notice the line of slobber running up her face? That’s from obsessive Mr. Stick fetching. Nice. (Grotesque slobber/mud/water covered stick thankfully not pictured).
Love her eyes.
And love her too.
Have you guessed what breed she is yet? She’s a Golden Retriever/Border Collie cross. So that’s why she loves Mr. Stick!
