    Riley

     

    Meet Riley. He’s a 12 year old Smooth (short) Coat Border Collie who is being cared for by Dogs With Manners Rescue. He is visiting the “Tarantula Farm” in Southeastern¬† Colorado where we have been staying for the last three weeks. He looks a lot like Rain’s dad Slick except he is 10-20 pounds lighter.

     

    Riley loves playing fetch.

    Riley is serious about balls. If there is a ball around, he is focused on it. If there isn’t a ball around, he will find something for you to throw for him. He lives for fetch and Rain loves to run with him as he chases the ball. Even though she knows she can get the ball before he does, she wouldn’t dream of it.

    Rain has really taken to Riley. Even though she is a free range dog out here on the farm, she normally stays within a about 50 feet of the camper. Ever since Riley got here, she has been going over to his pad and hanging out. I totally missed it, but I was told that they were snuggled up together under a tree two days ago.

    They are a lot alike, and I think Rain knows it. Right now, her favorite place to be is about a foot away and behind him. Not only do they look alike, but they have a lot of the same mannerisms. It is almost like fast forwarding and seeing what Rain might be like 11 years from now.

  • Throw it! I’m Open! I’m Open!

    Posted on by Rain Dog

    After our bike ride yesterday, I was ready to take it a little easier today. Nothing tragic happened. I am just not acclimated to the elevation, and it makes climbing up the hills a bit tougher than I would like it. So, the alpha male, Rain and I took a nice, long walk.

    Border Collie Mind Trick

    Rain attempts the "Border Collie Mind Trick" Pick up the ball people!

    Since we ere going walk slowly, we brought Rains new favorite obsession along, a Kong Air Dog Squeaker Football. When she hears or sees it, her bottom jaw starts quivering. She would give herself a stroke chasing it if we didn’t pace her. As you can see in the picture on the right she doesn’t think we throw it enough, so she is trying to use the “Border Collie Mind Trick” to get us to throw it.

    I love you and the ball, but mostly the ball.
