Coming to a theatre near you

It’s a rags to riches story, featuring a border collie from the wrong side of the tracks who finds love, happiness and all the frisbees he can carry when he wins a game show designed for dogs only.

George in the movies

Or maybe it’s just a fake movie poster from Big Huge Labs.

Either way, it sounds fun to me. And no, I am not smoking anything crazy! It’s just good clean fun. Plus, see who it's directed by? Yeah. George Clooney.

Other border collies I’ve seen lately include some cute puppies here and a puppy from Norway. I’ve also made the acquaintance just today, in fact, of this border collie owner. If you know of any more border collies that you’d like to share, let me know in the comment section.

Have a great day, all. Until tomorrow, then . . .

So, is making a movie poster like building a baseball field? You know, if you build it they will come? So, if you make it George Clooney will show up to direct? I'm just wondering if you need an assistant?

Does George give autographs? I assume your husband is in charge of the makeup. And speaking border collies, did you see that P-dub's family has a new one too?

Hello Kate this is Delwyn.

I am saddened to tell you that my border collie- of paddle board fame, was hit by the garbage truck yesterday.
She was only seven and had given us much joy.
It is a quiet house today.

I don't have a border collie, but my tri-color Aussie is sometimes mistaken for one! I am going to post some new photos of him soon, right after I find some time and brain power to apply some texture to the one photo that seems to be screaming for it. Thanks for the search tips; I found several sites. Unfortunately, the only free ones I could find on Michelle Black's site (GREAT textures!) come with an order.

George's movie will be right up there on my list of "to see" next to Marley and Me which I'm still waiting on to come out in Norway!!! Have you seen that film yet?? I just crack up everytime I see the previews on You Tube for it, especially where he is hanging outside the window and Owen is holding on to him so he won't get away and Jennifer is driving the car and the dog has his front paws out on the road walking...hahahahaha....I get serious belly laughs from that! I think it's cause Marley reminds me of some of the rascals I've lived with!!
Very cool that you mentioned my blog in your posting today- Humble thanks too you!!! I have to make one small correction, baby J.E.N.N.Y. isn't a border collie- she is a lovely tri-coloured Aussie girl!! Doesn't really matter though, I confuse the two myself sometimes!! And she didn't sleep with me last night..tried..I honestly tried but she started looking like she was going to leap from my bed..so since she didn't settle I just put her back in her kennel to serious protests!!! I felt bad..
Have a super weekend!!!

My brother and his family is owned by Janis Joplin. She's 10 years old and one of the smartest dogs I've ever met. Yup, she's a Border Collie. Here's a photo of her:

Teehee! At first I thought "labs" the dog breed, since we always had labs here at the manor. I thought, wait, George isn't a lab. It took me a minute to get it. ;^)

Deb said...

I love it! Your post brought me a big smile today.
I would definetely stand in line for this new release!

My friend has a border collie called Jem. She rescued her from a farm in Shetland Islands, where she was going to be put down because she didn't like working with sheep. She is a very shy gentle dog and has made the most marvellous pet - I wonder if she has any idea how lucky she is.

I love putting my dogs on the blog! If they only knew!

I am still laughing at this! Indeed our beloved pets are the stars of our daily dramas: We do adore them!

My uncle used to have border collies. I have a cute pic of the dog on the back of my cousin's pony. We had an Australian Shepherd, which is very similar - my favorite dog ever!
