The Black and White Border Collie is named Dottie from the black dot on her haunches. The other beautiful lady is Nattie, so named because of the swarm of gnats around her when we first saw her, abused, badly beaten and seriously injured, staggering from dehydration and starvation in the sand hills of South Carolina. We found Dottie on the way to my Mom's for Christmas dinner inn 2002. On the fifty mile trip to Mom's, as we approached the pull off on the Edisto River, where Tibby usually indulged her last cigarette before we arrived, she agreed that we were late and needed to keep going. At the last possible moment, I suddenly swerved, braking hard and turned into the landing. As I sat there, engine running, Tibby said, " I thought we weren't going to stop?" I sat there staring ahead at the observation deck over the river and told her that I had no idea why I had pulled into the parking area. Just then we spotted the 6 week old border collie pup, peering cautiously around the deck, cold, scared, and starved. Go to my wife's website www.tibart.com to read the stories of their introduction into our pack. They are our "children". Both are so intelligent and intuitive that I am humbled in their presence.


Nattie died 27 August 2007 at the ripe old age of 13. A true friend, with whom I had the privilege of sharing the journey of life and will always remember fondly. She was a strong, quiet,and loyal pack member, who graciously allowed me to think that I was her pack leader. I will always look, as I get up out of my recliner, to be sure I don't step on her. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SPIRIT!
