Nov 30 – Phoebe in herd dog mode.

One day I need to take my camera when I go to get the mail.  Phoebe usually stops half-way down the drive and waits.  Sadie accompanies me.  Phoebe will often stalk Sadie on our return and seeing it head-on like that is pretty impressive.  She does that border collie/aussie “eye” thing and just zeroes in.  Sadie avoids her eyes and slows way down.  Phoebe waits and waits and then pounces and rushes Sadie.  There’s usually a little growling involved and some chest bumping, then they run off together and find something to investigate together.  Sadie is truly a blessing for Phoebe.
