from the archive: tor & the bug

dogs, from the archive

Most people know that the Border Collie is considered as a highly intelligent breed. In some cases, like with Sirius, this means that they’re very eager to please and easy to train. In other cases, like with Tintin, “intelligent” means a great curiosity about the world, an insatiable apetite for everything new, and a great attention for even the tiniest of details. Which, I suppose, is why, earlier today, Tintin spent about fifteen minutes playing with a price tag sticker that I’d pulled off a box, and also why he tried to climb through the window in pursuit of a sparrow a couple of days ago…

The stunning young man in the photos below, Mr Tornado of Mastamariner, is a very intelligent boy indeed. At first, I thought his cleverness was of the Sirius kind, but then I witnessed the following scene and realised that he’s a bit of both… ;)

“Huh?! What’s that?”

“Oh my god, it’s a BUG! Everyone, PANIC!”

Thamesis: “What’s all this commotion about?”
Tor: “It’s… It’s the most terrifying thing, Tam-Tam! It’s probably better if you don’t look!”

“Maybe if I lie very, very still, it won’t attack me…”

“Psst, bugsie? Are you still alive?”

“Argh, it MOVED! Grrr! See my gleaming fangs, Mr Bug? Yes, you’d better watch it!”

Thamesis: “Border Collies… Sigh!”
