Since Mira isn’t really a suitable playmate for Watcher (despite her claims to the contrary) today we brought home another collie! Ch Keeper of the Stars, at the ripe old age of three, was tired of being a show dog and seems pretty happy to retire to the country with the new name of Echo.
Watcher so far seems happy, in that swirling exuberant collie fashion that collies have. Echo is a little overwhelmed I think, going from a show kennel to a big new yard with new people, an (overly enthusiastic) new playmate and a bunch of strange, hoof stomping creatures in the back field. He doesn’t seem displeased though, so I think he’ll settle in just fine. He’s already set to work adding his mark to the fences, with Watcher’s help.
Welcome to the farm, Echo!
