THE JUMPING DOG

14 The Jumping Dog

 

WHAT IT IS

 

When the International Olympic Committee announced the first ever canine Olympics was to take place in Salk Lake City, Utah, this Shetland sheepdog from Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania began training immediately.

Canines are allowed to enter three separate events. Hopes are high throughout the United States that this dog will take home gold in the high jump, silver the hundred meters and perhaps even a bronze in treat eating.

Sapphire took this photo on a cold, snowy day near where the Amtrak came to an unscheduled halt and where several canines were training.

 

WHAT IT IS NOT

 

There is a small mammal research farm several kilometers from our Wanapitei home, on HWY 537. Sapphire was asked by the owners of the farm if she could drop by and take a few photos to be used in an upcoming promotional pamphlet the farm was planning to create.

The story of this jumping Shetland sheepdog turned out to quite interesting. The dog was herding up a group of chipmunks which were to be shipped to Oslo, Norway to a large banking institution. What exactly a bank was to do with chipmunks was not made clear to Sapphire.
