The Sunday Stills Challenge this week is Canine Companions.
This is our Border Collie “Chance” he is 6 1/2 years old. We got him when he was an eight week old pup. We just went to “look”..and one little pup just walked right up to my husband and sat by his feet. My husband picked him up..and never put him down. My husband always wanted a Border Collie..they are best friends. We hardly ever leave Chance alone, he goes with us everywhere. He is very spoiled. He is very friendly and he loves people..especially children.
I took these photos of Chance on Saturday March 19, 2011 during one of many daily ball playing activities. He is very photogenic and I have many more photographs of him than either of my children. Yes, we still have snow. Some areas of the yard are muddy..but we still have plenty of places to play ball without getting muddy.
Some places in the yard are melting..Chance loves the ice cold water.
My husband and I have always had dogs, we both grew up with dogs. Before we got Chance we were dog-less for three years. We took the death of our last Sheltie “Captain” very hard and neither of us knew if we wanted to go through that again. ..that has been the only time in our lives that we have not had a dog. Chance has been a wonderful addition to our lives:)
