It is I, Chance the handsome blogging Border Collie. I had to chase Far Side away from the keyboard again..
This is part of my yard. It is my area to patrol. I keep one very chunky squirrel on the move. He likes to eat the birds seed.
I am the perfect backdrop for snowflakes. There has been snow in the air everyday this week. There is an old wives tale that says â€œIt must snow three times on the tail of the robins before spring truly arrives.â€ That old wife is in big trouble with Far Side.
Far Side ran onto another legend about the Robin:
Legend has it that it got its distinctive red breast when it tried to pull the bloody thorns from Christ’s head as he hung on the cross.
I donâ€™t chase birds..especially legendary birds..Border Collies are not bird dogs. Right now I am sharing my yard with Juncos, Purple Finches, Chickadees, Nuthatches, an occasional Robin and a Downey Woodpecker. Far Side calls the Juncos snowbirds..soon they will be out of here. I watch the birds come and go..and keep one eye out for that bird seed stealing squirrel:)
