Pronunciation: mel-lan-col-lie

Sentence: Jake, a border collie, hated being left behind and felt melancollie and dejected. So the highly intelligent and talented dog who could control a flock of sheep or geese with just a look, would also use his stare to control his owner, making her feel very guilty for leaving him.

Etymology: melancholy: tending to promote sadness and gloom + collie: herding dog originating from the British Isles - Border Collies in particular have a distinct "gaze" that they use to control sheep, geese, children or anything that moves (except for cats, who stare back at them and refuse to be herded)
