#400 Joker, Male, 14-15 Years Old
Hi, My name is Joker. I’m somewhere between 14 and 15 years old. I was dropped off in far west TX when BCRR and my Foster Mom (FM) found me. According to FM she has a soft spot for us old ones! She has nicknamed me “Old Soul”. After getting to my FM’s house and meeting the other resident Border Collies, I settled in on the nice soft doggy beds. Sometimes I just can’t decide which one to pick, although the ones with a bolster seem to be my favorite. The other old lady in the house, my foster sister, and I hang with FM each day and follow her from room to room. FM says I’m a talker, as I like to make noises when she talks to me and she thinks it is so cute. I’ve also done much better with getting around after loosing weight and getting some arthritis medication, and my feet trimmed. I’m going to a Doggy Spa for a bath and hair cut, wow, a first for me, can’t wait! I learned to use a doggy door, and have not had accidents in the house. I have found I still like to play with balls. Although I can’t see as well as I used to, FM gives me real short and easy throws and I do try to catch it, and once in a while I actually do! If I miss one, I just find it and bring it back so we can go again. My tail is wagging a lot more now and air conditioning is WONDERFUL. I am a charmer, an old soul, and will follow you anywhere and everywhere around your house. I like to be brushed and petted and sit at your feet. I do have some arthritis, and have cataracts and trouble hearing, but that does not slow me down. If you want to help an old man in the twilight of life… I’m your Border Collie!
