I'm going to GET it!! by ShelleyVPhoto I'm going to GET it!! by ShelleyVPhoto
Snipe continues to be one intense dog... When he is set to a task, he does not quit! In this case, the ball is getting in his mouth one way or another! Determination, Ball Obsession, Craziness wrapped into one moment! His expression kills me everytime I see this photo! I loved it from the first moment I saw it on the back of the camera.

I love this expression as well but I chose the other photo to use for a drawing as I didn't want people to think Sniper was possessed by a ball demon!!

Wow, what a shot! Talk about intensity...but we are talking Border Collie/cattle dog. It goes with the territory. I know I've had both plus and Aussie/Border Collie. Great dogs.

Thanks! They are great dogs. :) I've owned Border Collies, Aussies, and BC mixes my whole life. I love the drive and intensity, it is a part of my daily life living with them and wouldn't change a thing!

I have to agree. His expression is unreal! LOL... I love it! It looks like the ball is accelerating away from him and he's absolutely confused.

Tooooooo cute.
