Roux, Roux, Roux-be-o

This is Roux, a tri-colored border collie, on the first day in her new home.

All legs and possessing the energy of a locomotive, she's about 5 months old, based on estimates from our vet, Dr. Jim Rundell.

Gumbo, her older white and black-ticked border collie brother, thought it was great fun to have someone to play with for a few days. After all, Lucy, Gumbo's chocolate lab cousin, usually stays for a day or two.

However, Gumbo figured out that Roux wasn't going away and spent a few days pouting to us and trying to rip Roux's face off when we weren't looking. Eventually, Gumbo figured out that Roux could be a full-time playmate, and they are the best of buds now. Their nickname is Mr. & Mrs. Snarleyface and their mantra is:

"Rip, Rip, Rip

Run, Run, Run

Snarl, Snarl, Snarl

Fun, Fun, Fun"

OK, so I'm catching up. I missed this on the first read. You have ANOTHER Border Collie now, right? No empty nesting for you two, huh?

Yep -- another rescue. Two are actually easier than one - they entertain each other with their boundless energy. I think I have the word "SOFTIE" tattoed on my forehead.... or some other "S" word....
