A Ramble with Shadow

Posted in Home, Photography, The Ranch by leahyetter on December 8, 2010

My favorite walking buddy around the ranch is our border collie, Shadow. He works here on the ranch herding cattle and lots of times he herds us when we take him and the hound dogs for walks. But when it’s just me and him, we walk side by side.  And during these cold winter days, it is so hard to entice him out of his insulated dog house and straw bed.

After begging, milk bone bribing and a little tugging on his collar, he eventually joins me on a ramble.

He patiently sits and waits for me to get my photograph of the landscape I’ve framed up or a portrait of the horse I’m visiting with. His big brown eyes stare a hole straight through to my heart.

Then he does a little dance and hams it up for the camera when it’s time to move on to the next scene. Shadow is definitely a loyal friend and fun subject.
