pets melanieWhat is your pet’s name?
Melanie (Melly)

What is the breed of your pet?
Border Collie

How was your pet’s name chosen?
It’s a reference to Gone With The Wind. I have a cat named Scarlett.

What is a fun or quirky fact about your pet?
Melly is third generation Scottish border country Border Collie. They were bred and required to work all day in the hills and valleys of the rugged Scottish border country, sometimes running 50 miles or more a day, oh my!

Do you have a favorite walking route, etc.? What is it and why?
For now, we take a spin around the neighborhood. Melly is just a puppy and gets tuckered out fast. However, see above, she may have me running a marathon some day!

Does your pet have a special talent? If so, what is it?
Melly has a knack for agility. We have a mini agility set in the yard that includes a tunnel, weave polls and a jump pole.

If your pet was a famous human, who would they be?
Why, Olivia de Havilland, of course!
