Samantha is an energetic Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix who is a complete workaholic, if “work” means chasing balls and sticks. This is her at Trout Lake in Vancouver waiting with crazed anticipation for the ball to be thrown. She has a slightly cockeyed ultra-alert look and is full of breathless energy and face licks.
She is the most extraordinarily communicative dog I have ever known. We have long conversations about many things, mostly about how much she hates the microwave because the beeps annoy her ears and why do the crows always taunt her and fly away? Also, fireworks: why? They are horror. She can rant about fireworks for hours.
