If you happen to be a Border Collie you spend a fair amount of time waiting.
Far Guy went to a meeting, it was too cold to go to town so Chance and I stayed home. We waited, and he sighed, and sighed some more. He is just not himself without his best buddy.
Even though it was below zero we went out to play ball.
He waits for me to lob the ball in his direction.
Ah he is a happy boy now, his tail is up and he is so proud bringing back that ball.
He ignores me and my camera, but I still capture the snow melting off his nose.
We played until he was cold and ready to quit, he dropped the ball and went and curled up right in front of the door so I couldn’t possibly go inside without him …his signal that he was done. I did a few more chores outside while he patiently waited for me.
It was –38 F on Thursday morning…that is –38C. Friday our high is supposed to be A POSITIVE 30 F or –1C. 68 degrees difference in 30 hours..now that is unbelievably weird weather worth waiting for. I pretty much have to see that 30 degree weather to believe it. So we are waiting…
