I know of someone who's writing a children's book about working dogs and would like photos for the book. So far the only pics I've seen of herding dogs are of ACK breeds and not real working border collies.

 

I know we've got some fabulous photographers here so thought I'd ask here.

 

Her first book, Getting Eddie Ready https://www.amazon.c...i/dp/1546575669 is about a pup being raised to be a service dog. I haven't seen it and can't speak to the quality.

 

If anyone ha any good pics of border collies at work that they'd like to share with her, please PM me and I'll put you in touch with her. A sample pic might be helpful.

 

Here's her original request:

 

So I'm putting this out there. Recently my Eddie went from a hopeful Service dog to a therapy dog, and I am putting together a kids book about how being different can help us find the job that is right for us. I would love to get some picks of dogs doing jobs such as hunting, water rescue, carting, police work, search & rescue/scenting etc. Everyone must sign a model release for their pup to be in the book. I cannot use the picture if you did not take it.

 

Later posts indicated an interest in herding as well.

 

I'm assuming she'd give credit for the photo, but you might want to confirm that with her.

 

Thanks!

Check on FB with Christine Koval, Dave Imas, Maureen Scott Robinson, Jenny Glen, Betty Gillis (or Texas Sheepdogs), Michelle Dobbs, or The Gather - all have fantastic photos.

Thanks for the suggestions, Sue!

 

She really doesn't need a ton of pics and will probably end up using just one, which is why I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone wanted to participate. But if no one does I'll definitely have her check out these folks.

Anything I have that's nice enough to offer was taken by someone else so that's not an option.

Thanks, Gloria!

 

I especially like the last picture, with the dog and sheep close together. But you and she can work it out together.

 

PM coming now.

Not sure where on the internet I found this years ago.  May be nice for the story of a pup in training!

Cute!

 

But she needs pics that she can obtain written consent to use. Otherwise I'd pass it on for sure.

The author says she hasn't gotten any pics or emails from either of the folks who'd said they could provide some pics.

 

If you're no longer interested in doing this, please LMK.

 

Thanks.

Thanks. I think she got something. We've parted ways over some differences on another matter, so if she doesn't she's on her own now.

 

Actually, she'd expressed some misgivings about children thinking the dog was hunting or killing sheep (I told her that's what captions and text are for), so I'm not sure if she'll include a pic of working border collies at all. :rolleyes:
