Border Collies are not really lap dogs, but Billy thinks otherwise.
He occasionally 'leaps' onto my lap from a great distance, often without my having noticed his launch. Luckily (?) Lady Magnon was at hand with her iPad to immortalise this particular leap; performed whilst I was busy sketching.
Thank goodness he's still reasonably small and light; otherwise I might be speaking in a much higher voice.
Yes, pets don't seem to care about men's sensitive spots at all.ReplyDelete
They need telling!Delete
Nice photo - I didn't recognise you though.ReplyDelete
Nor did I. Where's my hair gone?Delete
Such a lovely post today you both look wonderful.ReplyDelete
Princess Agatha Tallulah is still getting comfortable living here. She just jumped up in my lap yesterday ! ! ! and she is starting to talk and answer me and is enjoying getting cuddles but on her terms. She is such a sweet gud dug. We love her.
Billy still has a few faults, but he's a real pleasure to have around; even if he does jump on me.Delete
He wanted to help you sketch!ReplyDelete
I think it was the opposite. He wanted me to stop, and play with him instead.Delete
That is just adorable.ReplyDelete
Who? Me or the dog? Don't answer!Delete
Lovely picture... he is a beautiful animal.ReplyDelete
But, then.... as far as dogs are concerned, I am extremely biased!
Nice portrait of an aging artist, too... sort of Rembrantish!
More of the ageing; not so much of the Rembrandt.Delete
Good to see you without your hat. Must confess I had begun to think you even wore it in bed.ReplyDelete
Billy looks a lovely dog his expression ‘I’ve got his attention, now what?’
It's beginning to get cooler here, it'll be glued back into place before long.Delete
A lovely picture of you both.....first time I have seen you properly! Our schnauzer is a " lap dog".....luckily smaller than a collie, but still quite a surprise when he jumps up while I am snoozing!ReplyDelete
Yes, that's the worst bit.... when you're having a nap. It's happened to me a couple of times.Delete
Yes, he wanted you to stop for sure.ReplyDelete
It worked. Not much I could do about it.Delete
Good photo, one for the archives. His glossy coat contrasting well with your shabby chic fleece!ReplyDelete
Have a good day!
I wear my 'ratting' clothes till they drop. Billy has an interesting coat!Delete
Your last paragraph says exactly what I was thinking as I was reading the post, lolReplyDelete
He has a very special look in his eyes, a combination of innocence and wisdom.ReplyDelete
He has a lovely face. When you look at him close-up, he really is beautiful. Difficult to photograph though.Delete
What a lovely photograph ..... has your beard had a trim ?XXXXReplyDelete
Yes, quite recently. I feel naked.Delete
Happy man, happy pup.ReplyDelete
He gets nicer by the day.Delete
A lovely sight...but what about the sketch?ReplyDelete
A pity...you'll have to start another....Delete
What a brilliant idea it was to present you with this chap - he is a beaut.ReplyDelete
He certainly makes life interesting.Delete
Yes, I agree that the unexpected launch is a play for attention... and usually works. Our cats do this also. Jump right onto the book, knitting, or computer keyboard! Lady M did good to catch that shot.ReplyDelete
He's not a big dog, but too big for this sort of trick. I need to be wary.Delete
A great picture. Well done, Mrs. C.ReplyDelete
Yes, it's a good shot.Delete
