Meet "Mya". She lives down the street from us. Her person is on vacation. I met Mya for the first time early this morning as she was standing out in the street barking. I called her and she came right to me. The number on her tag came up as a South Dakota number and her owner said he's on vacation and she must have jumped the fence. He said he'd call his pet sitter and find out what the heck is going on. When he called back, he said he couldn't reach the sitter so I offered to let Mya stay the day with us since she is having such a good time and "Missy" adores her.
I don't care if her owner ever comes back. She belongs here where the fence is too tall to jump and she has a playmate.
I love, love, LOVE border collies! This is the second border collie I've found roaming the streets. Before I started this blog, I wrote a "note" on FB about a border collie we found roaming the streets one night downtown while we were at a concert. It was a weird reunion with his peeps as he had been stolen from them two years previous to us finding him. Border collies don't sit still very well. I don't imagine Mya will be with us longer than today but if her owner never came back, she'd be mine. I'll leave you with a few pics I shot this morning.
Don't you just love dogs?
