  1. Ok how cute are those 2! Nothing cuter then babes and poochies... well maybe add a lamb for cuteness over load.
  2. Meeting Buster Kenzie not so sure of him. I'm out! Lexie loves him. Come on Dad we are having a moment! Can't really call it a dog pile. Foos
  3. Kris I am so sorry for your loss. You were a good human to Jazz, and I am sure he never regretted adopting you. I know nothing said can ease your pai,n just take comfort in the rest of the pack. It is so true when they leave us they take a part with them. Sending [[[hugs]]] from my crew to you. Foos
  4. Them some ugly border collies! *Snickers*
  5. Wow there is a lot I want to say. I will keep it to a minimum. (hopefully) First the dogs, I would personally applied the alpha'tude. A paper bag or something in hand and my inner monster's voice, would have applied my rule! This sounds harsh but i had a rescue and my pet that were doing that same thing. Nothing worked until i got fed up and chased towards them with a Wal-mart bag in hand screaming profanities! The fighting never completely stopped but they were no longer out for blood. If i said "quit it" they would after that. (Some dogs just can't get along though and for that i would be at a loss also) Second the pound, You need to go down there and demand your property back. Go as far as speaking with everybody in the chain. Be forceful in implying they seized your property without your consent. You are being scammed by the county, you should make a point of that to everyone. (They are profiting off of your misfortune) Your dog did not bite you, you got bit for placing your hands into a dog fight. We've all did it or something as ill thought out, no shame in that. You need to explain to all of them that, and you can "observe" your dogs at home. (they are current on shots) I wish you good luck in finding a good home, until then I would just make sure they know fighting isn't acceptable behavior. Get down to the pound and stand up against them. They rely on the inaction of residents for easy money. Call them PIRATES and demand your property be returned with and apology. I cannot stress this enough, be a pain in their back side until you get your dogs back.
  6. Does the world really need another mini any breed? Some people really do deserve a boot in the @$%!
  7. Ouzo is IMHO to handsome for his own darn good! Anda needs to ugly him up to give all the other dogs a chance! Good job Ouzo!
  8. Great pictures, makes me wanna break out the SLR, someday I'll upgrade to a DSLR instead of my old broken down digi.
  9. Sending Mojo from M.O. Whether it is the cause or not, I'd ditch that ball.
  10. I hope you didn't type that in front of the dogs! I'd have to add appreciating nature for what it is into this equation. Something about the natural world always makes me feel grateful to be alive.
  11. Conformation IMHO is just a beauty pageant for dogs and their misguided owners. I look at it like this, I own this flashy tool that is claimed to be "top of the line". It looks real nice and seems sturdy, but when I look closer it is just flash. It wasn't built for it's intended use, but marketed as such. This is what the AKC is doing, and the reason alot of "working" people despise them, and the rescue folks dread them. They offer nothing to the dogs besides a standard "look" and a increase in popularity. This is just how I see it tho. Foos
  12. Welcome a board! You've found (IMHO) the best BC forums on the intra-webz! You can find every type of BC person here. We may not always agree, but you can rest assured everyone wants what is best for your pup. I am no expert... heck i am barely a novice in BC related topics! But i know for a fact that you can do both agility and stock work with a dog. I knew of a frisbee dog who also enjoyed agility and stock work, was he the best at all of them? lol umm no, He was a good agility dog, great frisbee dog, and a train wreck with stock! Only BC i ever saw run from a lil itty bitty lamb. But you can see the happiness displayed as he worked. (stock) I think you should at least give it a go, been plenty of folks here who discovered the joys of shepherding. Plus the relationship you will build with your dog is priceless. If it isn't for you, no need to feel guilty about it. I, myself just didn't have the patience for it. Although I do plan to try again someday. Zag and Syd loved it, Syd was actually pretty good at it. I learned out of it all, I suck at handling, but I am a good pet owner... and i am ok with that. Please do be careful with her (as a pup) being out in the field. Those horses and lamas could harm her badly. Now it is my duty to inform you of "The People's Border Collie Gallery". It is a great place to show off your BC *hint* If you have some pictures, some of us would love a look see. *hint hint* Grats on the lil fluff ball and again welcome!
