Nora vs. the iPhone

There is never a dull moment in my life.  There was never a dull moment before Nora the Border Collie came  bouncing onto the scene, and now that she is here I know I will never have a dull moment.  Nora is the kind of girl that commands attention, and she has no shame in how she gets it.  She is obnoxious, persistent and very much in your face constantly.  I have been teaching her how to perform some fairly simple behaviours and where she is very smart and a quick learner, she is stubborn and if she doesn't want to do something there is no amount of treats and praise in the world that will convince her otherwise.  Owning a dog like Nora has humbled me as a dog trainer, and I love this bad animal so very much!

I was trying to get a picture of Nora for the blog.  I just wanted a cute little picture of her face, similar to the picture above.  I asked Nora for a sit.  She obliged.  Then I thought wouldn't it be so cute to video Nora playing with her ball?  (Planet Dog if you are watching, do you recognize that ball?!)  Well, Nora hell bent on being a brat rolls around her ball for a second before taking off with my iPhone!  I was going to erase the video, however when I played it back it ended up being quite funny.  So, here is a laugh.  Sit back and enjoy, I have to go throw the ball again!
