GIVE ME A KISS and THE IDLE MIND IS THE DEVIL’S WORKSHOP

I am giving Nikki a kiss.

This is the Milk Bone cookie trick, the test subject's name is Chris.

If any of you, my loyal followers, were here, RIGHT NOW, I would give you a hug with my two front paws, and a kiss, because I am a sweet guy.  And Chris, one of my most loyal followers has taken that a step further,  She places these tiny Milk-Bone cookies in her mouth and allows me to g-e-n-t-l-y remove  those tiny cookies with my sparkling white teeth.  I am VERY gentle.

My Dad is learning, the hard way, that my very creative Border collie brain needs things to do.  Any object that is within my reach is interesting enough to chew on…for example:

My Dad’s water sandals…the buckles and connector parts were quite crunchy…

My Dad’s dress shoes…he can still wear them…as part of a Halloween costume that has something to do with zombies…

The driver’s seatbelt in the Scion xB…My Dad was not in the car at the time of that project…

My Dad's seatbelt in the Scion xB.  He was not in the Scion when I did this.

I had been caught working on this leash three times...last night we had a breakthrough!

A roll of gray duct tape, two television remotes, several winter gloves, one of My Dad’s referee shoes, my dog bed, several leashes, an embroidered Border collie tissue dispenser, a shoe shine brush…I believe that is all…what?  Oh, yes.  My Dad just reminded me that I have chewed on some black ink pens…on the carpeting…all under unfortunate conditions…

The seatbelt has been chewed on?  Are you asking me or telling me?

Now that you bring it up, yes, the hamburgers were very tasty (and so was your seatbelt...)

  1. This post is funny with the captions but it isn’t funny when you must replace costly things. Been there and gone through that with my Border Collie Rocket who lived to be 13 or 14. He chewed every bed that I ever gave him. But he did not go along for rides. My son’s BC. Lady did minor damage to her bedding. I now have a
    BC X Great Pyrenees and she chews on anything that she finds on my property. She is my outside watch dog and a pretty girl I feel for you having to replace those seat belts.

  2. I love your blog! It’s FAB!!! I love Border Collies and have one myself! I also love to see the BC’s perspective as it’s really funny!

  3. Very, very funny post. Tom, I’ve just recently become a proud Mum again to a 3 month old Hunterway pup, and he’s attempting to chew everything in sight too. Am in the process of compiling a blog post and photos. Dee 🙂

    • Ahhh…the New Zealand Huntaway….a handsome dog! So happy that you have a dog to keep you company. Magic and I went to southern Illinois on an investigation….his first time in a hotel. Magic told me he will be posting about this trip shortly. Happy to see you smiling! -Tom and Magic
