Willy is six years old. He is a Border Collie hound dog. I got him at four months of age. Willy and his siblings were in a little red wagon at the Whitesboro, TX Peanut Festival. There were about 9 pups. Their mom was too old to continue nursing them, and was becoming ill, so the family needed to find homes for them before six weeks.
Willy catches tennis balls, frisbees, and other items that are thrown for him, and considers that his favorite pastime. He also has a job: keeping the squirrels up in the trees. There are about 100 trees around here.
Willy, in this picture, has just sniffed a bush where a bobcat marked the night before. This location is on the edge of the property. All the dogs protect the perimeter, day and night. We have a camera we move about that lets us know what animals are lurking in the night.

What a cutie! Aren't dog's funny about the squirrels? I grew up in a heavily wooded yard in the middle of a residental area. Our dog would drive us (and the neighbors) crazy trying to keep all the birds and squirrels out of the yard. The jays used to rile him up on purpose - it was hillarious to watch, not so much to listen too. Glad your guy has lots of yard to protect and plenty of critters to keep him busy and happy.
