This blog is in memory of our beloved Border Collie Tippy who died on July 28th 2010. Every Sunday over the course of the next few months I will post memories and pictures of her life with us, both as a working farm dog, family pet, best friend and work mate.

A Strange Thing To Do.

By the time you read this I will have revisited the places in these pictures, unfortunately there was no one to lay out my waterproof trousers on the bench for this time.

After seeing the first picture I am now trying to figure my mind set. I remember it as a very horrible day of constant rain which stopped as we approached the bench so Tippy was already very wet just as I was so there was hardly any point to getting her to lay on the bench instead of the wet ground but not only did I put her on the bench I also lay out my trousers for her to lay on. I know I do tend to share with my dogs when out walking so I guess I was just treating her as an equal. She sure does look like she was ready for a rest though!

The second picture was taken just a bit further long the trail and she was back in to her stride and wondering why I was so slow.

  1. What a sweet bonding moment. I think dogs love to rest on our clothing, and soak in our scent.

    Tippy does look quite wet, her hair all curly.

    Seems like you had similar weather yesterday.
