My dog

The other day we took our dog to the Wadi Degla Protected area and I learned a few things I did not know about him.
First of all he is afraid of heights! Just like his owner and no it's not James. The second thing I learned was that when he is finished playing he will get back in the car and he will not get back out. We stopped while driving back to the entrance because I spotted sea shells (yes in the desert) and James and I got out of the car and went out of eye sight of our car we left the doors opened and continued to call him trying to coax him out with not luck.
I have also learned that if we go for a long walk around town Jac Pott would prefer to take the elevator instead of walking the steps up four flights of stairs (come on really if I can take the stairs he can) Maybe he has jet lag too.
I don't know what to say about all the cats that we come across during our walk. The funniest thing that has happened while walking is that we came across a puppy sleeping and Jac Pott didn't pay it any mind and the puppy once it hears us jumps up yelping like we hit it (of course we didn't) and runs then once we are a good way down the road starts barking like it finally found its nerve. Jac Pott still is not paying any attention to all of this. For the most part our walks are very uneventful thank goodness. We get asked alot if Jac Pott is a wolf he is not he is a pure bred border collie. While he has never hearded he has the instinct to do so since both parents were working championship sheep and cow hearders.
He has learned the sound of the elevators and knows when someone is in them. We had him groomed the other day and instead od using clippers like they do at home they did it by scissors and it looks really very good.
