Ben and Scout

My 6-year-old border collie Ben, with puppy Scout, shortly after we brought Scout home from Border Collie Rescue of Northern California last fall.

Now Scout is 5 months old, as tall as Ben, and they have become inseparable. They roll around the house and chase each other around the yard in a blur of black and white.

Scout's worst habit is stealing vegetable trimmings out of the compost pile (the base of celery stalks, rotten eggplants, egg shells) and bringing them inside to play with under the kitchen table. ― Barb Newton
