Just an update, after an email with Ms. Minor over an episode Bennie had, she noted the following:

We are hoping to send samples for our genome scan very soon. We are just waiting until we get enough normals dogs for study controls. If you know of any border collies 8 years or older that have been used for field work or other strenuous activity without collapse please send them our way.

I see this was posted relatively recently, but thought I would bump this up in case there are any others.

Border Collie Collapse (BCC) Genetic Study

There will be blood sample collections for the Border Collie Collapse (BCC) genetic study in conjunction with the Optigen CEA 20/20 clinic Wednesday 9/26 and Thursday 9/27 during the 2012 National Sheepdog Finals in Klamath Falls, OR.

The study is looking for normal/exercise tolerant stock dogs to be used as study controls.
Requirements for the genetic study include a short submission form, a small blood sample, and a pedigree (which can be sent separately).

During the 2012 National Sheepdog Finals there will be no age requirements for normal dogs; however, dogs older than 8 years are especially helpful.
