Border Collie painting 7"x5" - Moving Day - The Border Collie Way



Monty: Aaaah - it's moving day - having to say goodbye to old holes in the garden and old bones and old, worn spots on the carpet. Sad innit?

Rosie: Not at all - it's saying hello to new holes in the garden and new bones and new, not-yet-worn spots on the carpet. It's exciting!

Monty: Yeah, I suppose. Anyway, that dog's doing it right isn't he?

Rosie: Well, as long as they haven't forgotten his toys and his owners and as long as they don't get dirty paw marks on his kennel.

Monty: Arf!

Border Collie ACEO - Border Collie Sez #1 - or - Sez, the Border Collie #1

I was asked to revisit 'Sez' who was around a few years ago - (not on the internet). Sez is the fount of all Border Collie wisdom. Sez is dog and bitch. Sez is fat and thin. Sez is happy and sad. Sez is all Border Collies. Sez is the distillation of all the nuggets of thought, all the precious pearls given with doggy breath passed on to me by my various Border Collies over the years.

Border Collie ACEO - Dog n Mog #10 - Dog's Easter Mogget



Monty: What a brilliant job that cat makes of being a hat!
Rosie: I want one!
Monty: Well - they're friends. I mean, what cat in its right mind would want to lie on your head, Rosie?
Rosie: I want one! I'd be nice to it.
Monty gives Rosie sideways look full of suspicion.
Rosie: I would. Don't be like that. I'd be really nice to it if it'd lie on my head.
Monty, nails in mouth puts up warning sign: Beware cats. Don't believe her.
Rosie bites him.
: Srrunch!
Monty: Arooooooo
As his howl echoes around the neighbourhood all the cats for miles around look at each knowingly and chuckle, cattily, together.
Question:
Will Rosie get her cat hat?
Answer: Catty chuckle.

Border Collie ACEO - "In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it..."



Monty: I want an Easter bonnet too!

Rosie: Yeah. And me.

Monty (suspiciously): You, Rosie. You want an Easter bonnet?

Rosie: Yeah. As long as it's got an unsuspecting lamb on it like that one.

Monty, sighing: Might have known...

Border Collie watercolour painting - 7"x10" - '...and the lonely sea and the sky'



Monty, sitting on haunches, paw on chest, sombre tone, reciting:
"Sea-Fever"

I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.

By John Masefield (1878-1967).
(English Poet Laureate, 1930-1967.)

Rosie has her paws over her ears. She has no discernible soul...

Border Collie ACEO - Evening magic



Monty: The tranquility of it all...

Rosie: Tranquility? Tranquility? How can it be tranquil when you're sliding off the page?

Monty: I expect Susan just scanned it in crooked... Just lean over to the side and it won't look crooked.

Rosie, leaning over to the side: Aroo! That works!
