Meet Chess, an ath­letic bor­der collie liv­ing in Ten­nessee

Southern Living (USA) - - Home & Garden -

“Chess will do any­thing for a Fris­bee!” says owner Ash­ton Bemis. “I keep hers on a shelf in the laun­dry room, and if she’s bored, she’ll go whine at the door, beg­ging to play.” Bemis de­scribes her dog as driven and says she loves learn­ing new things. Chess has built up quite the ré­sumé too. She com­petes in “toss and fetch” as part of an in­ter­na­tional disc league and is also train­ing for com­pet­i­tive agility tri­als.
