As you’ve often heard, there are always two sides to every story, right?  Well, in this case, the two sides should be pretty identical!  Friday’s The Daily Post photo challenge was to post a picture which illustrates symmetry, and after browsing my photos, I landed on the following one as a good example of such balance.  The photo depicts Rorie, a beautiful collie girl who belongs to a friend a client.  Not only is Roro’s face nicely balanced, so is her personality (how very collie of her).  When I spend time with Rorie, she is gentle and loving, as she follows me about and looks at me with longing eyes in hopes for some attention.  Let something stir her herding instinct, however, and off she goes with a rapid run, hop, and fervor to gain control of whatever needs to be gathered and brought back to order!  Two halves that have made a wholly wonderful companion.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry

  1. What a lovely Post. By way of contrast, our Ray is the most affectionate cuddle with us, and the most unfriendly attitude with strangers. He is such a relaxed “chill-out” dog inside, and 75lbs of energy outside. He can focus on us with amazing discipline, unless he senses a squirrel and then we don’t exist. He was rescued by a shelter and later he adopted us. He really is no work living here, and yet he is an ongoing work in progress. Such contradictions ………. but that’s Ray.


    • Thank you so much for the kind comment! Ray is a lovely dog and reminds me much of Prince, my German Shepherd. The GSD is the ultimate study in contrast, isn’t he! The most vibrant picture that this conjures up is that of protection dogs who can take down an assailant with complete confidence one moment and tolerate a toddler pulling on their ears the next! The level of judgement and understanding they have is simply amazing. Thanks for the read and follow!
