(Ottawa Dog of the Week for November 22nd/10)
“Meet Shadow! Like most border collies, he considers himself an athlete. Shadow enjoys running, playing ball, frisbee and tug and swimming. He has been taking flyball and agility lessons and is considering starting dock dogs. This year he also tried his paw at herding sheep. However, the comment section on his herding instinct test only read “funny little dog”. This may not be something he should pursue. Perhaps Shadow’s favorite hobby is chasing shadows on the floor. He hasn’t caught one yet, but he’s determined, so watch your toes! Shadow turned 2 years old on August 25th.” – Shadow’s mom, Roberta.
