What I great shot! I love it- I also have a border collie but I always say that he didn't get the memo telling him he's a border... he could care less about balls, frisbees, or sheep, and he's very chilled out- but he's a sweetie regardless.
This is the picture of the week, I know how much concentration it takes for a border collie to just lay there and watch the ball and not run to get it! Fabulous catch!!
There is nothing like an Eye Dog for concentration. The one you have photographed looks just like "Dog" in Murray Ball's Footrot Flats cartoon from New Zealand.
How cute! I feel sorry for that ball should it happen to move! Great picture.Sunny :)
What a great shot, and dog. Look at those eyes.'Wonderful.
Well, there's one ball that will never get out of line!
Super shot - I love the composition.
