Fall seems like a good time to try sepia tones

Bear is locked and loaded:

My what big teeth!  And while Wick wants that ball, she knows better than to stand between a Bear and his ball:

Seabird Island Sheep Dog Trial

Robbie at the shed:
When sheep get stuck

Lou asks a ewe to move along:
You should find your friends

Lou now asks all the ladies to move along:
Recess is over

KE Tye backs his ewes up gently:
You are getting sleeeeppppy

Linc and his flock:
Blue eyes hypnotize

Imp Keen is very keen:
Keen beans!

Jen wants her run to start NOW:
Is it time yet?

Jill rounds the post with great pace:
She'll be comin' round the mountain ...

Tess and Diane set up for the shed:
Steady now ...

And get the shed:
That's a shed!

Wake me up when September ends

Another summer come and gone ... Just thinking about it makes Bear tired:

He tries to get up, but alas he's tangled.

Finally, the three musketeers are all together for a photo:

Labour Day Ball Chasing

Yahoo! No work today!

Even with my eyes closed, I look nutty!

King of the park

Wick loves the pink tennis balls

And it keeps the tongue hidden

When good dogs meet bad sheep

Ladies, I said MOVE!

Lou and his kitten, Buddy
Such a big tough dog

Two different reactions to the fireworks

Bear couldn't care less.  He is focussed on the cake in the oven.

But 50 minutes is a long time to wait, and he drifts to sleep ... again.

Wick is hiding in the panic room.  Hey, let's add to her misery by bringing out the camera!

Twice as Wicked

Wicked met Nancy Gyes's fabulous agility dog, Wicked, at the recent Northwest Regional USDAA trial.  Come on, when you meet another dog named Wicked, you HAVE to take a picture!

Really Wicked

Sunday morning at the beach

Finally, a sunny morning and the tide was low. The dogs are filthy and there is sand everywhere - all in all, an idyllic few hours in paradise.

Bear with his ball

That's a whole lotta wet dog.

The gruesome twosome - Bear and Wick

Wick doesn't get the ball ... again

So she plays her favorite game - dig and catch.

That's nice, Wick.
