Mug Shots in Black and White

We have a mob of black and whites around here. They are our beloved border collies. You can't go anywhere without seeing a whole gang of them together running, jumping, digging, chasing animals, and generally causing trouble.

Each of the gang has a very unique personality. If the mob ever got arrested by the dog catcher, I could tell you how the wanted posters would read:
Name: Duke
Age: 9 years
Mob name: "The Old Man"
Wanted for: Excessive loyalty to Randy Sue, Dependability for finding lost cows in the backcountry, Caretaker and babysitter for sick or lost animals
Name: Buddy
Age: 5 years
Mob name: "Where's Ian"
Wanted for: Excessive loyalty to Ian, strange markings that make him look like he is wearing pants, being hopelessly in love and obsessed with Aspen
Name: Lily
Age: 4 years
Mob name: "Barky McBarkerton"
Wanted for: Excessive loyalty to Justin, Extreme obsession with and loud barking at large birds, Food guarding and gorging
Name: Aspen
Age: 4 years
Mob Name: "Little Lover"
Wanted for: Excessive loyalty to Randy Sue, Cuddling in bed, Constant desire to play instead of work

Thanks for your post. It is a tragedy to destroy rare native habitat to keep animals in captivity, in exhibits, and to build a gondola ride.
