Dog of the Day: Atticus the Border Collie

Atticus is the dog of a coworker of mine. Such an adorable dog… he loves everybody, and everybody loves him. And he’s sharp as a tack, but he’s also just a bit willful: the first time I saw him, he was all excited, and he decided he didn’t feel like sitting. He’d do any other trick, but he didn’t sit until someone took out a dog treat. And then, as you can see below, he was delighted to sit, for just as long as the treat was on offer.

Two more pictures after the break.

He's obviously well-trained, and I bet when he isn't meeting twenty new people he is very obedient.

Look at that tail. Border collies have poofly tails, but that one is just amazing.

If I had a dog to bring to work, I don't know if I'd get ten times as much done, or nothing at all.
