border collie play, ears..etc..


I let Cricket play outside while I ran to throw in some laundry and when I got back, she was playing in the water. YIKES, I was worried about her not liking water. She was bobbing and diving and digging, I wish I had the camera, it took me a few minutes to go and get it but she was still playing. I had the video so cute with Splish Splash for the music, but you tube muted it, I uploaded it straight onto blogger and it kept failing, so today we get to hear the dogs playing and no music!

Can you believe the holidays are almost over? How did another year go by? I am a little sad that here in this house we all go back to our "normal" schedules tomorrow.

I have another new obsession, CRICKET EAR WATCHING. She is teething and lost her first two baby teeth-time is marching on isn't it? I would have put money her ears would be low and look a lot like Breeze's ears-then awhile ago the ear set started drifting slowly higher on her head....but they tipped very low, then a few days ago when she would shake her head and get some air...they would look prick for a couple of seconds,...and now she is wandering around for sort periods of time with one ear up and one ear down and the tip point is getting higher and higher, sometimes both ears are prick for a few seconds, and sometimes they both look like they are hanging at the sides of her head for a few seconds..WHAT WILL CRICKETS EARS END UP LIKE???? No one knows...but you know I will be watching, LOL.


I am pretty biased but I think she looks so cute what ever is happening with those ears!

Oreo's ears did weird things too. Started out folded, both were prick at one point, but I kept folding them down with my fingers! LOL. Don't think it did much good.

In the end, he has one up one down. I think it's charming. Cricket's will be too! She just precious.

Ughghg, I have a video of Cricket playing and for some reason I did not realize it had not uploaded, whoops!

I saw the video when I read your post on google reader, but when I came to your blog to leave a comment, no video. Weird.

My husband wanted to know what Cricket was trying to find in the water. I told him that I thought she was just bobbing her head in there for fun! Silly girl.

how funny your hubby said that-that was my first thought for sure three was some toy that had got in the water, but no, all it was was muddy water. That video was driving me nuts it was the oddest thing

Cricket was so cute playing in the water bucket! The digging and the mud, not as cute - LOL!

We've been reading about the state of Haku's ears too - I never realized border collies had such ear issues! I think they are cute no matter how they end up!

I love confused dog ears. She's getting SO big - I can't believe how much she's grown since you first brought her home and how much her ears have grown, too, LOL!

Wow, your dogs really arent that dirty from playing in the water and dirt. Cricket is just so cute no matter what the ears are doing. Diana
