Border Collie Panting
by Paul Ohara
This is Benji.
He is an 11 year old Border Collie who still acts like a puppy!
I have had Benji since he was a puppy and I've enjoyed every day I've had with him.
When i first got him I went all the way to the Welsh Mountains to collect him. His mum and dad were fully working farm dogs and little Benji was the runt of the litter who nobody wanted, but as soon as I seen him I wanted him.
He loves to go to the park and play fetch and meet new dogs of all ages and sizes, even though he does get tired.
He is a strong dog - he has survived parvo twice and he had a bug in his bowel that could of killed him.
He is a very obedient dog, he does all of the basic commands and few more like herding my 4 children when they stray a bit too far when we are in the park.
He is very gentle with all animals, especially his new best friend, Crispy the duckling!
This picture was taken just before he dived into the lake!
