*NOTE-A correction to the Liverpool game. It is not Sunday, but Monday at 3 pm EST on talksport.com*
Each of our collies has had a quirk about them and here are a few of them I’ve noticed through the years;
Trevor loves Apple Crisp, it is his favorite food!
Lad tries to talk trying to make words, changing his tones of sounds and at times it sounds like he is having a conversation in a different language!
Big Hallie used to sit in chairs and in the car like a human on her backside with her back legs sticking out like a human’s does.
Niamh used to run so fast around the room she could run across the wall sideways!
MacKenzie used to try to sing along when we sung Doggie in the Window.
Lad focuses on his ball for it is his toy! Its like all he thinks is Ball, Ball, Ball,
Branwen’s favorite toy is a plastic baseball bat she loves to chase when I throw.
Lil Hallie loves her “brain cover”…. its a doll hat that she plays with always….
Lad likes to sit at the dinner table at meal times… waiting for his plate! LOL
Mick can open doors using the handle
Lad is an escape artist and will escape only to go after me.
Skylight is our main stud, but will not breed unless he has privacy out behind the shed! LOL
Niamh, Hallie, lil Hallie and now Hallie’s daughter Trisha and her daughter Ginger all like to sleep with their back legs facing the opposite direction of their front legs. if that is not weird enough they then twist their heads off to the side so it looks like they have a broken neck. The first time I saw this I thought Niamh had met a horrible end!!! Now, I just look and shrug my shoulders… crazy collies!
Big Hallie and her look alike grand-daughter lil Hallie curled up next to my pillow on the same side and would put their head on my shoulder till I fall asleep. Then they both would jump down and lay in the same place where they can watch me. Now, Big Hallie died less than 24 hours before little Hallie was born! Strange…..
Every member of my family has reported seeing MacKenzie…… after he died. Myself, included.
When we bring home stuffed animals for the collies to play with, Smoke always adopts one as his baby and will not let any other collie touch it. He will carry it in and out and sit it under a bush while he plays and no one had better touch it. Then, one day he will take it out and put it under the big Maple and leave it and never look at it again. It is like it grew up and he was letting it go!
There are many other tales and quirks my collies have had through the years… these are just some of them!
