A very patient Border Collie, this photographers's friend, much less prone to running over specimens than two the Jack Russells! :)

I had three Border Collies but sadly only two now,cannot take pictures when with them as rather inquisitive and squash everything,especially if there is only one specimen or it is rare.

Finest kind -

I still miss my Border Collie, who was very good at spotting reptiles, for some reason. She also loved chasing Canada Geese,because they flew off with a great deal of noise, which she found delightful. But she thought squirrels very unsporting because they took to the trees. Her plan was to starve them out, and she had to be dragged away more than a few times.
