This first one captures the Border Collie personality so well:
Notice how Stella is mostly a blur and everything else isn't?
That's pretty much what living with a herding dog with too much time on her paws is like.
Can you guess what happens in the next frame?
|Yes children, this is what the Large Hadron Collider is doing, but with particles instead of dogs.|
Wanting to get a few face shots, Andy called Mini over to where he was, and she decided to take the shortest route to get to him, never mind what/who may be in that path:
Stella was caught a little off guard
Mini looks so dutiful and Stella looks so surprised/offended/taken aback.
|Here I am! I came as soon as I possibly could.|
Of course, any time we are in a pasture, it doesn't take long before the does figure out we're there and come on over to demand their share of the attention.
|Alright kids, you can go visit, just please be safe...|
So there they are. It was a little bittersweet to find them after we had lost her. I sometimes think of what could have been, what was supposed to be, and all of a sudden, there's something in my eye. Wait, both eyes...probably just pollen, or dust, or something. But, I also think of what was, and the good of having her here, and I know that eventually, that will be mostly all of what I think of when I remember her.
