Caillou the Wonder Dog

Most of our dogs are old. Ol' Buddy was the youngest at eight, but then Caillou wandered into our lives. He's a two-year old collie.
All the old dogs love to walk in the mornings when the grass is still damp with dew, and the air is fresh with a crispness left over from the night. But when the summer sun gets high in the sky, the old dogs prefer to lie in the comfort of our bedroom.
Each evening I go out to the field and spread corn under the apple tree for the deer. I try to get the dogs to walk with me, but they won't have any part of that. Caillou is the only one who goes with me. 
Tonight as I ambled back toward the house, Caillou ran up behind me and grabbed the plastic corn cup out of my hand.
I chased him down and wrestled it away from him. He wanted to play. Here is a short video of Caillou the Wonder Dog doing his little fetch trick.

  2. Gorgeous pup!
    At least he brings the stuff you throw back to you. Ours just run like hell to get it before the other dogs and then flop down with the ball and chew on it.
    Beautiful place you have there!

  6. So beautiful. I am a collie woman through and through. But, of course, I never met a dog I didn't love.

    Love,
