We’re surrounded by stumps. Stumps of old dead cedar trees. Dark hollow eyes—cuts that at one time held springboards for loggers of long ago— watch me. Witch’s beard hangs from tree branches. A raven caws as if to frighten me away. No, I’m not scared. Not this time. I have Bruno and Tabu at my side and we’re determined. An odour warns me of a bear fresh out of hibernation or skunk cabbage cooking in a swampy pond. If it’s a bear, I could make noise and scare it away, but that might attract…

Dima, Tia Arden’s black and white Border Collie, has only three legs, but true to her name which means powerful warrior, Dima lunges forward. Handler Tori Stewart strains to hold her at the start line. The blue light changes to yellow, to green. Dima takes off. She races to the first hurdle and clears it. To the second hurdle. The third. The fourth. She hits the box with her front foot. Boom! A tennis ball flies out. Dima swiftly snaps it up, turns around, and clears each hurdle once again…

Sharp puppy teeth followed me up the stairs like a shark out of water, nipping at my heels. Drawing blood. Every night, as I climbed the stairs to go to bed, my new pup was tight on my heels, delighting in his little game. Bruno’s behaviour had me bewildered, but after a chat with our trainer, I had more respect for the little guy. I learned that Bruno was just exercising his instinctual abilities, doing what Border Collies have been bred to do: herding—one of the oldest canine professions…

Tabu spots the opening in the ground. She whines and barks her little body is like a tight muscle, writhing, twisting. In the dark recesses of her mind, she must hear the howls of ancestors urging her on. I put her on the ground. She sniffs the earth. Picks up the scent. She's off. With her nose plastered to the ground, she runs, looking like a mini-rhinoceros, chasing the invisible scent line right to the hole, disappearing into the tunnel. She's gone. Tabu, my Cairn Terrier, is one ...
