“Dutchess…DUTCHESS… Don't do that!” as she cocks her head from one side to the other. Then it appears she wants to argue with me and barks, not once, but twice and then turns her head to the other side. Standing in front of my recliner she wants me to get up out of my comfortable seat and get “her” ball from the ball drawer.
Dutchess is like a 3 year old human in a Border Collie body…I really do believe this. Last night, it was her turn to come in for the night. She, along with Abbie, Annie, Meg and of course Clancy, were all getting ready to come into the house and bunk down for a night of sleep. The only thing bad about that is you feel guilty leaving the other three dogs outside in their cozy kennel. It’s tough to stay in the kennel because I'm sure their music is too loud or it’s on the wrong station. The ceiling fan is on too high and is causing a draft, or the new Memory Foam dog mats are not as hard as the old ones.

She is so comical and has more facial expressions than any dog I have ever seen and she certainly knows how to use them to her advantage.
It’s so odd that she and Molly are half sisters born only 2 weeks apart on a farm in Kentucky. Molly is refined and elegant, not causing any trouble and will always do everything I ask. Dutchess is boisterous, unruly, disruptive and many other things that I don't have room to list. She ALSO has a heart of gold and will always flop over on her back in my lap wanting me to rub her belly.
