Co-operating dogs.

I took this picture tonight whilst we were out for a walk. I can always rely on Tommy to co-operate so it was nice that Tess did too as she goes about her life like she has ants in her pants so I'm sure it was a tremendous trial for her to sit still for ten seconds while I took the picture.

With regard to last nights video someone commented about Tommy getting a go with the ball. I will tell you that Tommy got to play ball a lot of the time but it just happened that while I was shooting the video Tess was doing the catching. It was funny earlier because Vicki was throwing the ball in to the sea so they both chased after it but Tess would wait at the waters edge and let Tommy go in to the water for it and would then want the ball from him when he got back in dry land, she didn't get it though.

Tess is growing into a little lady, isn't she?

my sister has two little half terriers. they love to play ball. when you toss it they both go running after it but the girl dog gets it first usually because her brother lets her push him aside. she'll play with it for awhile then let him have it. the boy dog will be the one to bring it back. he puts it on the ground and pushes it with his nose to you. sometimes though, he will get it first several times in a row. his sister doesn't like that and will get rather pissy with him until he lets her get the ball first again. the girl dog will play ball with herself sometimes, throwing it up in the air, letting it bounce and then catching it again.

I have 52 years experience of living with sheepdogs and I can categorically tell you that Tess has naughty ears. But, I expect you already know that.
