Jake, border collie

My dog is sooo green, he never uses electricity! As a matter of fact, he runs from anything that uses it, ie; vacuum, hair dryer, mixers. He also is an expert at recycling! He will pick from the trash anything that is edible, (or not) and use it for his own purpose! Then, he is kind enough to fertilize our grass. He doesn't mind walking wherever we go, and thinks keeping the earth clean is a pretty good idea!
