Border Collies Are Focused… On Something…

, , , , , , | Related | October 27, 2020

My high-strung border collie mix has to go out on a leash due to a bad habit of chasing after bunnies, squirrels, cats, turkeys, and deer. Today is no different, and he takes me all over the yard, sniffing and barking every few feet, even though nothing is visible to me.

During one such circuit, he stops to stare into the trees and sniff dramatically. A tiny movement near my feet makes me glance down.

Our neighbors’ tiny tortoiseshell cat is staring up at me, standing less than a foot from my dog. He has not noticed her in the slightest.

I love my dog, but the best and brightest he isn’t!
