Welcome to the Meadow.  I am Lad and its hard to believe that no collies has been  here longer than I have been.  Many cool things happen here at the Meadow.  Lots of fun, playing, BALL playing, running, chasing, barking and Ginger plots going on all of the time!

So, come on in and I’ll share a few things with you!



When we arent playing one of our favorite hangouts is on the couch.  Here you see my brother Skylight with the sisters Branwen and Ellie.    The couch is a great place especially if dad is laying there trying to read…..

000_0003Here we are having a meeting with Dad…. we are discussing plans for our next play during a game…. part of the organized games we have…

000_0003then there are walks….  my mommy Hallie with Uncle Trevor years ago…

Yes, we have lots of activities here!  But, there is only one that is important….  even though the Hammock generates the most activity…. this is even more important!!!

Soon it will be 6 years since Trevor left us and this is a memory I will always laugh about….

I took Trevor to the Pet Store to pick up a few things I wanted and as he strolled in people were pointing and saying “A Collie!  Just like Lassie!”  Trevor of course ate it up and we picked up a few items I was looking for.  As I carried the items we turned a corner into a new aisle and there in three low wire bins were doggie treats!!!  The multi-colored bone types and Trevor saw them right away and made a beeline to them.  Now, the store is smart for they put them where the dogs can sample them for they know if the dog loves them you will buy them.

Trevor walks up and sniffs the first bin and snorts in disgust and with his muzzle he flings them on the floor and stomps over to the next bin.  I am busy picking up the treats and Trevor sniffs the second bin and snorts even louder and flings these treats all over the floor also!  “Trevor, stop!”  I tell him as he stomps over to the final bin.  By now I can see he is smoking mad!!!  He hates food he does not like and he sniffs the final bin as I pick up the second bin of treats from the floor.

He snorts loudly and really flings the treats this time.  I am snickering for he is on a temper tantrum now.  He looks at me with fire in his eyes and I promise to buy him something good as he turns away and snorts again.  All of a sudden I hear water and turn to see Trevor is leaving his opinion of their treats as he waters the support pole next to the bin.  Now I am horrified…. but he looks at me with this evil glee in his eyes and grins and I can’t help but laugh .

I get up and say lets go and Trevor stomps down the aisle and we turn the corner where he is met by several women who make a big deal about how pretty he is and he quickly starts grinning and is his happy self as he eats up the attention he is getting.  Finally, the women move on and we go to check out and as the lady takes my money and offers Trevor a treat….. the same treats he hated. He snorted and turned and I gruffly said; “No, Trevor, not here!”  He pouts and then I hold out some beef jerky treats which he loves and he happily ate them as we left with him strutting happily out with me.

So, that was the day Trevor was naughty.  Otherwise the guy is one big happy collie who is usually very, very well behaved.  But, that day he made me laugh … although he had terrible manners…..

Trevor has returned since that day to the pet store and even though he still hates those treats he just snorts and walks away now….  although I can see him look at me and read his mind that he would like to tell them again how he feels about those rotten treats…. LOL

I promise Dad, even though those treats stink I will not water the post this time!

Good Friday

Today is the day that Jesus died a terrible death to pay for our sins.  Even us collies recognize this and react accordingly.  We watch each year as it grows silent on Good Friday here and as the old Guy goes deep into prayer, the Bible and contemplating it all. We have our own thoughts…

  • – You know dad, if you humans had only listened and obeyed he wouldnt have had to do this…. but we collies love you humans anyways!

-Everyone should take a moment today to thank Jesus for his sacrifice.  I wish we collies could go to church too.,,,,


-The Good News is he died because he unconditionally loves us all, just like we collies love you dad….  although at times we do have to blush….

-Even I, the future world dictator, take time to be thankful today.  When I come to rule the world you will have the day off from your labors in supporting me to worship….  Good thing he forgives you….   I Ginger never forgets….  But, seriously take some time to reflect upon what was done…

33 And when the sixth hour[c] had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.[d] 34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” 35 And some of the bystanders hearing it said, “Behold, he is calling Elijah.” 36 And someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink, saying, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down.” 37 And Jesus uttered a loud cry and breathed his last. 38 And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. 39 And when the centurion, who stood facing him, saw that in this way he[e] breathed his last, he said, “Truly this man was the Son[f] of God!”
