You stinkin Collies!!!!  I shall return!!!

dscf4850

dscf4845Wow! It actually worked!!!  That will teach you you stinkin tree rat!!! Come back and you’ll get it again….

Unbelievable!

dscf5015Who would’ve thunk it?  The old guy took my advice and superglued a acorn onto the tree… it drove that squirrel nuts trying  to get that acorn off there… muwahahahahahahaha  Perhaps the old guy would like to be part of my plan for world domination?  With his thumbs and my brains… we would be unstoppable…..

Our First Collie

Our first collie McKenzie was a really smart collie.  This led him to do wonderful things that would amaze us. Unfortunately it also led him to do some of the most unbelievable things we ever saw also.

Mac was a big, burly Tri-color who had Mahogany mixed in his fur. He went about 80 pounds and was a lot of fun and made me laugh endlessly.

I’ll never forget the day we taught him to sit.  I put him in the middle of the room and said sit and pushed his rear end down as I said so. He looked at me trying to figure out what I meant. When he was sitting I gave him a treat which he loved.

I then repeated this and he was studying my face as we went through it again. The third time I said sit he sat!!!! I gave him the treat and praised him and made a big deal about him doing it!  I said sit the 4th time and he did it again. He was so smart!  We practiced a few more times and I knew he had it.  After all, McKenzie when we brought him home pottied once in the house and I showed him it was a no-no and put him outside and he never went in the house again!!!!  He was one smart guy.

Now, as you will see my friends Mac was always thinking.  I turned around to go and do something else and Mac ran around in front of me with a look of glee on his face and stood in front of me and sat! I told him what a good boy he was and laughed and gave him a treat.

I then walked past him only to have him repeat the performance again!  Heck, he could do this all day and he was so proud of himself!  So, I gave him another treat.  He again repeated this and that was when I had to teach him that he only got a treat when I told him to sit.  That was fun for he figured that out quickly too, but he didn’t like that.

My McKenzie has been gone for 16 years now and I still miss him everyday.  He was one fun loving and smart guy who taught me a lot about life.  All my collies have taught me a lot…..  But, Mac was the first and someday I hope when I go to the other side I will meet up with my big guy who loved life and lived it with gusto and fun!  His biggest lesson to me was to relish the time you have with those you love for in a blink of a eye they will be gone forever and that loving life and those around you even when things are not good in life is what to dwell on.  So, relish your families and your dogs or cats and love them like each moment could be the last you ever see them, for as was Mac’s case, it could be.
