"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."

                                                                            Friedrich Nietzsche

Border Collies are known to be quirky.  People less understanding, call them weird. I prefer to use the above quote. Perhaps we just don't hear the music they hear. Perhaps they are in a world of Dr Seuss and Horton really does hear a Who.

So when Mesa began chasing invisible things in the yard, my first thought was that she might be chasing shadows, but her movements were too quick, too erratic, and often over a mud puddle.  I soon realized that Horton really did hear a Who, or rather she saw one.

Mesa's newest sport is chasing tiny flying insects that are so small I cannot even see them unless the lighting is just right. She spins and pounces and snaps in her hunt of the elusive "no see 'em."

 I watch her in the yard, darting here and there at apparently nothing and I think about the lesson I can take from this. Don't judge others. Perhaps they can see beyond us. Perhaps they can hear the music.

LOL!! My Gideon started staring at my bathroom floor and then spinning around and acting crazy. It took me about 2 minutes of pure terror(thinking he must have a brain tumor)before I saw the tiny crazy ants on the floor.

Hahahaha! I understand. I really thought Mesa was chasing shadows. I remember watching one catch raindrops one day. Fascinating creatures.
