Border collie ACEOs x 3 - photo story: Recipe for Life



Monty: Ooh, look - it's the Thorns of Life!

Rosie: No, it's not - it's a load of cactuses.

Monty: Cacti. And it's symbolic of the Thorns of Life.

Rosie: Symbolic. Shymbolic. Bleugh.



Monty: And now - you add a Border collie to the Thorns of Life and see what happens.

Rosie: Prickles in your paws probably.




Monty: No. Add a Border collie and then Bask in the Garden life has become.

Rosie: Life has become a garden because there's a Border collie in it?

Monty: That's right.

Rosie: Oh, well. That's right. That's what I've always said. All along.

Monty: Yes, Rosie.

Border collie ACEO - The Hollymutt Fairy



Monty: Yayyy - it's the Hollymutt Fairy!

Rosie: Do you think that get-up is uncomfortable?

Monty: Nah - not for the Hollymutt Fairy.

Rosie: But it looks all spiky...

Monty: Well, it would be spiky and uncomfortable for anyone else but not for the Hollymutt fairy.

Rosie: Right. Is that a life lesson, Monty?

Monty: Uh... Um... Yeah. I think...

Border collie ACEO - When Christmas trees were tall



Rosie: What does that mean? Christmas trees are ALWAYS tall.

Monty: It means that they were taller when we were smaller. It's symbolic of how time takes us from puppyhood to full on doghood and how we change and how we see things differently.

Rosie: That's daft! I mean, they get taller if you lie down too. And they get smaller if you're further away.

Monty: I despair.

Border collie ACEO - Just call me Rudolph



Monty: Ooh, look, it's Rudolph the red-nosed reinpup! Yayyyyyyyy - Rudolph!

Rosie: That's not Rudolph - that's that annoying little pup from round the corner. The one who's always squirming into our garden and pinching our rope knot. What's its name? Hmmm - Sebastian! That's not Rudolph.

Monty: Don't be mean, Rosie. It's Rudolph.

Rosie: But it's not Rudolph...

Monty: Rosie, I don't often put my paw down, but this time, just humour me - it's Rudolph.

Rosie: Yes, Monty.

Monty: Boiled bones! Rosie! (puts paw on her brow)

Rosie: Shuddup.

Monty: Yes, Rosie.

Border collie ACEO - Holly, bold and jolly



Monty standing upright, paw on chest, declaiming:

Here’s a poem by Christina Rossetti, about holly and other plants…

A ROSE has thorns as well as honey,
I’ll not have her for love or money;
An iris grows so straight and fine
That she shall be no friend of mine;
Snowdrops like the snow would chill me;
Nightshade would caress and kill me;
Crocus like a spear would fright me;
Dragon’s-mouth might bark or bite me;
Convolvulus but blooms to die;
A wind-flower suggests a sigh;
Love-lies-bleeding makes me sad;
And poppy-juice would drive me mad: –
But give me holly, bold and jolly,
Honest, prickly, shining holly;
Pluck me holly leaf and berry
For the day when I make merry.

Rosie: Humphf. So - A Rosie has thorns as well as honey,
I’ll not have her for love or money - is that so?

Monty: Um. Er. It's only a poem, Rosie.

Rosie: Humphf. What about a Monty, then? What about a Monty? A Monty has, um, has smells as well as fur and I'll not have him for bones and gravy. Hmmm - well, um, mabye for bones and gravy... But I wouldn't have him for spinach. No! See!

Monty: Yes, Rosie. Actually, life would be grey and sad without you.

Rosie: Urk! Shuddup, Lunkhead!

Monty: Yes, Rosie.

Border collie ACEO - Trailing clouds of magic



Monty: Ahhhhhh....... Santa Claus, reindeer, presents, candy bones, starry nights, snow on the rooftops, children pretending they've been good all year. Yes, it's good to be alive.

Rosie: Did you post my letter?

Monty: What letter?

Rosie: My letter to Santa.

Monty: Ah ha! You DO believe. I knew it!

Rosie: No, I don't. I'm just humouring you. Did you post it?

Monty: Yes, Rosie.

Rosie: Okay. Now, don't forget the lengths I go to to keep you happy Monty.

Monty: Yes, Rosie.
