The Collie Flower Bed

"Mum, why do I have lie in the flowers, why, why, why? You are so MEAN! I am a big, strong, male dog who likes to do cool stuff like extreme squirrel chasing and tennis ball exterminating... not lying around in giant daisies, that's for sissy girl dogs!"


Actually, after a moment's reluctance to lie down, Barney relaxed, even, to my amazement, closing his eyes for a couple of minutes... probably exhausted after long sessions of swimming and running around for hours at a time over the past few days :) Of course, the moment I told him I was finished, he leaped to his feet and ran off to continue being a proper "boy dog", not a sissy collie flower :)


Barney and I would like to say Happy Independence Day, to all our human (and canine!) friends in America! I hope you have a fantastic day :) I hope everyone else is having a good weekend too. Oh also, I'd like to say Happy Birthday to my step-mum, Mel, whose birthday is tomorrow!
