I suppose my love of dogs all began with a Border Collie. When I was little more than a bundle of smelly nappies, my mum and dad came home with a Border Collie puppy called Sam who then became a constant companion for the first 16-years of my life. It was always normal for me to have a dog around.
The Border Collie is synonymous with rural farming life. It’s a working dog of the pastoral group of sheepdogs - bred to work sheep, with innate herding instincts. Indeed, my Sam was never happier than when he was ‘herding’ me and my 3 siblings on long rambling walks in the Lake District during our summer holidays.
This card capture the life, brightness and alert nature of the breed and I’ve added spits of colour in a move away from my signature white background to convey the energy and movement of the Collie. It’s all about action and being ready to go to work!
The Border Collie card, from an original watercolour painting, is available on it's own or as a pack of 5 or 10 card.
You can also get your hands on this design as a print, mug, coaster, magnet and keyring...you're spoilt for choice really.
