The Belle Show

Two minutes of pure Belle, doing what she likes to do best, walk around the room until I relent and get up and let her out. Which I did right after I shot this video. She got to the door and said “No, I don’t want to go out, you idiot…”

So we went into the kitchen and I asked her if she wanted a “fishy-cookie” (as I called her freeze-dried fish treats), and she said “Yes, of course I want one, or two, I love those smelly things, Mummy.” So she got 2 small ones. After that, she settled down, for maybe 10 minutes and then she was up again. Talking to me again. I went outside with her and she came with me this time, and we sat outside, taking in all the birds and chipmunks and flora that is our world here at Crow Cottage. No sun today, just some overcast skies and a little warm but not hot like it has been. We can handle this, but I am really waiting for fall this year, more than I have in a long time, because this has been one long hot summer.

Belle said to say “hi/woof” to you all, BTW, but of course she waited until my camera was put away before saying it!

Collie Dogs!


Bex & Belle

kip11feb16 004//

I think I could turn and live with animals…

They are so placid and self-contained,

I stand and look at them sometimes half the day long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,

They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,

They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,

Not one is dissatisfied… not one is demented with the mania of owning things,

Not one kneels to another nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,

Not one is respectable or industrious over the whole earth.

~ [Walt Whitman, from “Leaves of Grass, No. 32”] ~

    I’m used to you posting about these entries on FB. Maybe I missed it.

    Loved hearing you talk!

    Poor Belle. Looks like she needs some ear scritches and maybe having a toy to play tuggy with. Glad you two could get outside and enjoy the fresh air!

    Very cute Bex and I like the way she finally decides to lay at your feet. Sweet collie. Mommy loves me.

    Hot as blazes in these parts but has not gotten up to 100* yet this summer (heat index yes, but temp. no).
    Puts a whammy on what I’d like to be doing. Can’t wait for fall which is what I say every year.

    Well, off to look for a place to live. Never ever have had this much trouble. Sigh.

    What a beautiful girl! So glad you found each other.


  7. I love the video, seeing Belle, hearing your voice, and getting a glimpse of a great relationship.

    It is raining here in Ontario, Canada today, and a welcome rain it is. Cooler here too, at last. It has been quite a summer for hot weather here on the eastern side of North America!
