Battenkill Books has a little coffee machine near the armchairs. Gibson has inspected it. It's quality stuff, he thinks. He doesn't drink coffee (and I shudder at the thought of a Border Collie hopped up on caffeine) but he does enjoy hospitality. He'd crawl inside you if you let me. Crawl inside and turn around three times and lay down right there by your heart beat. These dogs are not easy dogs to live with, and not for everyone, but they are the dogs for me. Intense, dramatic, obsessed with their work...sometimes bite. Sounds like a farm girl we know.
