|I'm converted, its official, I am in love with Border Collies! Never thought anything would replace cats in my heart but I have to admit that after our visit to Rosmarinus Border Collies they are coming pretty close.|
|It was a glorious day which greeted us on the morning of our trip east to Norfolk. I was particularly looking forward to this project of Steve's which would see us being introduced to 7 week old Border Collie puppies and Steve getting the difficult but enjoyable job of photographing them. 7 puppies all in excited spirits met us on our arrival and initially they all came out to play and be photographed.|
Their breeder Rosey has quite a number of Collies, and we have visited previously to photograph her adult dogs and her herd of sheep and lambs. It was soon apparent some of the puppies were very bored by all the attention and decided to make an escape towards their kennels. One puppy in particular was not keen on modelling and when Steve and Rosey changed location this pup made a run for it closely followed by me. Instead of forcing pup to go back to the photo shoot I decided to sit down in the sun and keep him company, there are worse jobs LOL. After a brief period of playing he settled down next to me and fell asleep in the warmth of the day, good plan I thought.
|It wasn't long after, that puppies were in need of a rest and of course lunch so Steve took the opportunity to photograph a number of the adult Collies. Another period of puppy photography, but this time as individuals, followed, by which time Steve, myself and pups were just about ready to drop.|
|On our departure I did wonder about sneaking one away with me but knowing Rosey and her dedication to her dogs I wouldn't even have got to the end of the road....shame...maybe one day if I talk nicely to Steve!|
