Who could be immune to the charms of this little mug?

Who could not love this face?

Or at least tolerate this face?

And this fuzzy butt!

I can't believe everyone doesn't just fall and gush over this cuteness personified.

"Believe it."

Briar has not only not warmed up to Mesa, she has decided that Mesa is indeed, a Mini-Me version of Lily, whom she despises.

Thus by default, she despises Mesa . . .

. . . who really is a Junior version of Lily.

Briar has decided she doesn't like any of the Border Collies. She loathes Lily, whips Cowboy's butt when the mood strikes her, and tolerates Trace until he does drive-bys, nipping at her as he races past. It's sad really, since they used to play together, but as the Border Collies got older, they got more cliquish, and as Briar gets older, she gets more grumpy and less tolerant of other dogs. Just about the time the board of Barbed Wire Border Collies, Inc. met and decided to approve Mesa's membership application, Briar decided the pup was definitely a Border Collie, something that would grow to be a know-it-all-micro-managing-back-biting-sheep-intimidating-holier-than-thou canine upstart.

Thus, there will be no cute pictures of Briar cuddling with Mesa.

"Nooooo.... there will not...."

 "That's her loss. This toy is neater than a Kong!"

I love your blog, I missit if you get busy and can't write something. So sorry that Briar doesn't recognize the wonderful dogs that the Borders are, but you can't please every canine on the farm. Lol. It will be fun to watch the little one grow, she is very unique in her coloring even for a Border.

That is so sweet! Thank you! Yes, I wish Briar would like Mesa too, but she is getting older now and except for playing with Dillon when the mood strikes her, she really doesn't play with the dogs. And since babysitting Border Collie puppies is not in her job description, I can't really complain. If Mesa were a lamb, she'd be completely safe.

I have 4 girls that are more territorial than the boys- I worry about not bring around if they got out of their areas. We recently started a program of back to the '60s love fests with treats and Ma and Pa being the alphas - only time will tell if it works, but it seems to have a little promise. Only problem is that I growled at a co-worker when she took the staple gun from my desk when I was involved in typing. At least I didn't grab her muzzle.

Well, no one can claim that Briar is dumb or slow. She figured out that Mesa is a Border Collie just as fast as the Border Collies did.
