Puppies new competition

http://www.bordercollie.org/core.html

Our pup Ace is a Border Collie.
If you didn't know, Border Collies are natural herding dogs.
They were bred to be working dogs on farms.

They have this ability to herd other animals without barking. It's really an amazing thing to witness. It is said they can "hypnotize" cattle or "mesmerize" animals with it's intense stare. We call it the Border Collie stare.

Since we don't happen to have any sheep or other livestock around our little Chicago suburb homestead, Ace tries to herd whatever he can.

He attempts to herd our cats....
kitty does not find this amusing

He attempts to herd the kids.....
Tony does find this amusing

But Ace now has some new competition at our house.

Mid December, I am going to start babysitting a set of twins.

One of the twins, Marcus (not his real name-Mac made up the twins Blog names), seems to have the mastered the border collie stare.

This is a common look on his face. Almost like he can stare you into doing his will....

Feed me now!
You will give me my Binky!

I will dominate the world....



this is Mac holding his brother, we'll call him Brogan (I know....maybe if Mac gets over these weird names now, I'll have grandchildren with normal names).


Can you guess who is who?

"Give me your toys"

It's a good thing there's two of them. The Hubby and I are absolutely baby crazy so we've managed to produce a bunch of baby obsessed offspring. We will definitely be fighting over baby holding time.

Marcus and Brogan's mom and dad are pretty understanding about my blogging addiction issues and she has generously allowed me to blog about them every once and a while.

Can't wait to see who wins the first stare down.











I don't think puppy has a chance.
and sorry for all the puppy stories.
I promise to take a break for a while.

Those babies are absolutely adorable. I go thru phases of wanting a baby, so I need to come and hold one. Actually I always want a baby -- it's the rest I don't want (toddler, prepubescent, teenager...)
Ace is adorable. Jenny is a boarder collie mix and she barks constantly...

I am laughing over that stare!! And, they do have a similar stare going on....spooky.

I choked on my lunch when I got to the STARE pic! I remember those days.... I mean, when MY kid did that...not me! I don't bug out like that (very much....okay...some

I'm jealous of your baby time! That's so awesome. Hope you have tons of fun with the babies AND the pup. So much cuteness in one house!

Woo hoo, what a cute post! I'm not sure who is cuter, the twins or the puppy!

Good luck with the twins-- that sounds like quite an undertaking. It sounds like you'll have everything under control :)

Beautiful blog, beautiful family!

I had to recently wipe out my Windows Vista and re-install it with XP because it became too virus infested and completely failed. Now I am looking into how I can prevent these issues. I love to download fonts, but I don't exactly want to pay $20 for them. I used to use DaFont.com and I loved it, but now I've been looking at reviews and such to make sure. There's only good reviews, but I can't be sure those are legit. I know Yahoo! Answers isn't exactly the Library of Congress when it comes to this stuff but I would really appreciate a second opinion. **So what I'm asking is whether or not DaFont.com is virus free? Also, is 1001FreeFonts.com virus safe as well? Thank you.** [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]
