    Now THAT touched my soul or whatever it is inside of us that's primeval and adventurous.
    I'm thinking of the time my very best dog, a male collie I named Travis, and I were walking across my snow filled pasture heading for home, it was early February, before the turn of the Century. There was little light still in the western sky when we heard it echoing down the canyon. A wolf howl pierced the quiet surroundings. Travis stopped in his tracks, turned around and walked away from me, oh, about 20 feet, stopped again, faced the canyon and let out a wondrous and long howl. It was answered. A little time past, there were no more howls, Travis turned around, looked at me for several seconds, I said not a word, directly he came back to me on a little trot. I petted him and he and I made our way back to the warmth of our log cabin.
    I often wonder what they said to each other, for surly they communicated.

    Thanks Tugs, this guy was a 110# white factored Blue Merle Collie. He was a herder, back then we had cattle. Yes, he was a friend and loyal companion.

    Great looking merle. In one of your recent photos I noticed a tri-color in the background. I've got a couple also, a female tri and a male sable.

    That's nice ~

    Oh yea, I got a male Tri, we bonded early.

    Today the pack is a Tri (now fully grown), a female Sable (a rescue collie), and another Blue Merle:

    You can hardly see the Merle in the above picture, he's a real split face, one blue eye, one brown.

    NIce looking pal you got there S-n-G

    This is my hound dog, he likes to go out on the boat with me. I fish and he lays around and sleeps. Every once in a while he will open one eye and check on me, then back of to snoozing again. Couldn't really ask for a better friend. He likes it though, I couldn't keep him off the boat if I even wanted to.

    For my 50th birthday, I thought I was getting a rat terrier. Turns out she's a redfish terrier. P1010032.JPGP1010040.JPG She'll swim in a 50 degree winter surf to assist me landing a bull red. Many squirrels have met their demise in my front yard also.
