Will you Play With Me?

Will you Play With Me?
Captured at Farr Bay and Bettyhill Beach in Sutherland. I was trying to take a low shot of the beach and Clachan Burn when I was photobombed by this beautiful old border collie! He brought his stick for me to throw for him. There was no sign of an owner anywhere, - I guess he was just a beach bum!
When we left the beach he ran ahead and waited for us to open the gate for him. When we got to the car park we saw a man and another dog and he ran up to them so I asked if it was his dog. The man replied that no, it wasn't and he thought he was ours! He went back to his beach with the newcomers without a backward glance and my new friend was gone! He was so cute I think he took a little bit of my heart with him!

As this is on Farr Bay I could not resist adding a song by Tyler Farr called

'I wish Dogs Could Live Forever'

Thank you very much Edna. I could not resist it either. We never found his owner but I guess he lived close by and fancied another day at the beach! You don't know how much I wanted to 'dognap' him!!!
2 weeks ago.
Edna Edenkoben club
has replied to Ecobird club
I can imagine! But then again the dog might not be too happy about being dognapped, especially if he fancies yet another day at the beach and you live far away from it (well, I don't know if you do, but I do, so dognapping beach loving dogs is out of the question for me) ;-))

Ecobird club
has replied to Edna Edenkoben club
For me too sadly, and added to this we live in a retirement flat and can't have dogs here. I did have a back up plan though - my son is animal mad and he would have loved to give him a home, - and I could borrow him!! Again he is too far from the beach though and it would not be fair on the beach bum dog!!

Edna Edenkoben club
has replied to Ecobird club
Well, I live in an apartment (not retirement yet), but I can't have dogs either. Perhaps a fish or a guinea-pig ;-)
Lucky you that your son might want to keep pets for you, but given the situation it would really not be fair to a beach bum dog as you said. Perhaps next time you could try dognapping a countryside dog? ;-)

Ecobird club
has replied to Edna Edenkoben club
It is not really fair on a countryside dog either really. You would need to take him back to the country to give him nice walks. Maybe a fish - but you can't throw a stick for a goldfish and even if you could he would probably forget where it came from-)))).
My daughter had a goldfish once and I was moving house with her. She was in the front seat clutching the goldfish bowl and all was ok until we had to go over some pretty vicious speed bumps! There was no cover on the bowl so you can imagine what happened. The fish stayed in the bowl fortunately but a lot of water didn't!! Poor thing must have been pretty stressed out!
No - I think a fish is out!!

Thank you vey much Rosa. As I was bending to take a low shot I think he took it as an invitation to play!! Either that or he wanted me to take his picture! He went back to the beach but I get the impression this is a regular trip for him and he knew exactly where he was going. As you say he looks very well cared for, - he just likes making friends on the beach!! He made my day though.
