Would You Like Some Coffee?

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.

I don't have a border collie. I have a mutt with only a few breeds evident out of the many that have been contributed, but you described her perfectly with this. If it is ok with you I am stealing this (borrowing, quoting you..?) to describe her. It has been hard to come up with the right words and you have done it! Of course you are the professional writer with the brilliant blog and how many books under your belt?

We've had four BC's in the last twenty years. Not a better dog in my opinion. They do need a job and will not make a good choice for a city dweller.
