Sheltie Nation

The Master of Disguise!

Many exotic species—chameleon, zebra, Lady Gaga, just to name a few—depend on camouflage for survival.  But few are as cunning as castaneus canis, commonly known as the “Cute Sheltie.”  As patient as it is gifted, the Sheltie has mastered the art of blending into the environment so completely that it can fool chipmunks and squirrels.  In this photo, for example, Toby has cleverly assumed the shape of a leaf.

Where did Toby go Christine?
