It’s been a while since I’ve been active on here! Life has been a whirlwind as of late, and so many new things are happening, personally and professionally! I’m so excited for the upcoming months, especially once the mountains are easily hikeable again 😁
The prettiest Mama Singe ❤️
Answering some FAQ
1. What color is Singe?
Singe is a blue and white tri color, which is the dilute version of a black and white tri color. You can really tell the difference between black and blue when you see Ego and Singe side by side.
2. When will you find out if she’s pregnant?
I believe around day 25 after the breeding you can do an ultrasound and around day 50 after the breeding you can do an X-ray (pulled from google).
3. Are the health tested? Any titles?
Although I’ve answered this in a previous posts I’ll answer again for good measure. Ego and Singe have hips, elbows, eyes, ears, and full DNA panels done. Singe competes in AHBA herding and USDAA/UKI agility. Ego has 4 trick titles, competes in AKC, USDAA, UKI, and is training for obedience and rally.
4. Why did you pick singe?
My biggest priorities were structure and temperament. Singe is beautifully built and improves on all of Ego’s faults. She also has such a great off switch. Ego is the easiest dog to live with and I wanted to preserve as much of his biddable but driven work ethic as well as his killer off switch as possible.
5. Are puppies available? How do I get one?
The waitlist for the litter is full. I will never use Ego’s IG to advertise puppies (his or any others). If people are genuinely interested in a breed, please research breeders and lines. Don’t just get a dog because the parents look cool or you saw it online. Responsible breeding is about making sure puppies and owners find the perfect match. Border Collies are not the right breed for everyone and I could never support someone getting a breed or a dog based on looks or without doing any research.

After two weeks of wearing a cone and being restricted to leash walks because of some sutures on his leg, this kid was so happy to let loose this weekend. I sat on this hill throwing sticks for Tooky and just watching Pippin race back and forth hunting and digging and it was just the most lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon ❤️❤️ Hope you guys had a good weekend! #pippintheadventurepup
Found some deep powder & high peaks this weekend ❄️
Did you know that a squirrels big bushy tail has a bunch of uses??
It functions as a built-in blanket in the winter and as a sunshade in the summer. The tail also helps them balance and can be used for communication. Hrmm I think I need a bigger tail tbh...

I recently came across this memory from our month long adventure around New Zealand’s magnificent South Island. We flew into Christchurch, rented a van and took off exploring without really anything booked or planned. It’s not always the smartest way to travel but I love how it allows us to follow the best weather and stay in certain areas longer than we may have expected. We took a last minute detour to see this gorge and honestly didn’t expect it to be as blue as we’d seen in photos. It was absolutely pouring rain when we arrived, so we found a spot to park the van and waited out the weather. We went back the next morning and walked the trail out to this amazing gorge, which turned out to be just as vibrant as all the photos. It was still lightly raining but we managed to snap a few photos before moving onto our next destination. For those planning a NZ adventure, I have a blog post from this trip that I’ll link in my bio. It’s one of my all time favorite destinations ✨

I always wonder why birds stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on earth... then I ask myself the same questions. 🦅
Me: I have no time to get anything done!
Also Me: starts The Office all over again at season one
Ava hasn’t been feeling too hot lately. We took her to the vet and she’s on some antibiotics now, hoping she can kick whatever sickness she’s got to the curb soon. Poor girl. 😞
My Alaskan/Canadian friends will laugh, but this arctic air is too intense to do anything outdoors today! It feels like it's in the teens (F) and we're just snuggling under blankets looking forward to when this weather passes. As usual, Virginia weather can't make up its mind!
, it’s been a while! 🙊 Truth be told, the past couple of weeks have been some of the hardest for me as far as my photography goes. For as long as I can remember, I have always compared my work to others... though not necessarily in the “traditional” sense. The scenery in Los Angeles, or lack thereof, has become one of the biggest roadblocks I have faced yet. Don’t get me wrong, there’s so much beauty in the city... but when it comes to photographing a dog in it, it’s quite a challenge and I am not afraid to say that I am not good at it and I do not enjoy it. I’m a sucker for those picturesque landscapes and waterfalls, yet to get that, I’d have to travel almost two hours, which is not doable as a full-time college student. Needless to say working with what I’ve got has become something I’ve had to focus on and it’s certainly been a struggle. I’m still not entirely comfortable but every day I’ve pushed myself to step outside my comfort zone. All of that said, if anyone has any tips on photographing a dog in the city and/or ways to get back into enjoying (and not feeling as if it is a task) what I do I’d appreciate it.
aka the only one I’m going to brave the freezing temps to play with! 🐺🐶🖤
