  1. It's so good to hear your guys progress with your dogs. With the 20 total we had only 2 that are failing to connect. The ones that are in homes are doing great. The 7 that are still with us 1 needs a high energy home with lots of directions. She was wild from the start and she was way too much for an a pet adopter. 2 poss 4 are ready for special needs type adoptions they are needing understanding homes who will encourage them. They prefer to still be somewhat invisible if they can. The other 2 are different not willing to accept humans. 1 will tolerate it if you can catch him. The other takes 2 people to try to get him if get away in the large yard which is often and really doesnt care to be part of the dog pack. Routine is not for him. Does your guy stick his tounge out between his teeth? almost all our dogs do that. It's pretty endearing in a way. Originally I thought they had undershot jaws but, they dont.
  2. That is so cute. I am always dying to know why border collies do that. Even Kirby (medium grade mix) did that his whole life. Think of it this way at least he didnt mouth kiss him. I was holding bags and got one of those from Suggy tonight.
  3. I did see that Actual working dogs are exempt but, I wonder how you prove they are real working dogs? It talks about a 3rd party hired inspector. From what I read it leaves alot open to intrepretation. When Pas laws went into effect there were some who killed or sold off their dogs in other states but, plenty are still operating there is one I have been reading about regularly who has untill oct of 2012 to comply with state regs but, they cant enter the facilty without gas masks it's not heated or air conditioned. It almost seems like they made it more messy since they cant immediately close bad mills. They got lucky that the only guy they ever agressively prosecuted in this area was also a drug addict and he assaulted a prision guard and a nurse over his meds. Otherwise he may have been paroled in a month. despite thumbing his nose at the state over and over.
  4. Is there a link to what the signed legislation says? I clicked on a bunch of things on the page for 1451 Mostly I'm curious. I know in Pa all breeding kennels are supposed to be in total complience with the state law but, so many waivers of hardship have been given out some for another 18 months.
  5. There is one more boy who looks like this guy who is red tri the girls are already spoken for all are adorable
  6. These are the texas babies as they are getting old enough to leave the nest. Their mom is also adopted.
  7. Tell your wife not to feel bad, with the scared ones here they will run up all excited with the rest of the group to see me and then I'm not allowed to touch them. The super scared guy (on the previous page) loves to stare directly at me. He is studying me closely at all times but, the closest he gets to me is 10 feet away.
  8. I'm curious what everyone is doing with their dogs who are nearing 10 or over 10 in reguards to booster vaccines. My state requires me to rerabies every 3 but, I wonder if they have had all their shots in their life if it makes sense to do them in old age. I dont have time to finish the whole series now but, I'd rather hear what people do or have done.
  9. Burdock when susquehanna county humane was super rescue friendly we had alot dogs test neg for hw and pos on the lymes. It depended on the vet but, some did the 2 weeks of doxi and some did nothing unless symptoms showed of lymes infection. (Genie did the doxi) She will always test pos so I'm told even if you do the doxi.
  10. Their sister was adopted yesterday at the best friends adoptathon. All we have left now is boys aside from Meg who is a bounce back for being way too hyper a girl and Lousie who's pups are almost weaned. The other girls are all doing great in their new homes. We have adopted out our one young boy and one is ready to be adopted. I'm unsure How the last 4 will fare. The brother a twin to the one pictured is submissive he shows you his belly all the time. 2 more very prety ones are ghosts you would never know they were even in the yard. We are working on them but, it will be a process. I enjoy hearing about others process with them. I hope to post puppy pics tomorrow. They are way too much.
  11. That pic is from the day they arrived in April. I really have to wonder though what happened to this man last year that so many pups survived but, werent sold or placed. Alot of the most scared are more like Kelso in that when they think you cant see them they play happily but, when they see you they hide. This guy is just learning to be a peripheral of the dogs. He cant take treats or join the group to come when someone arrives he only stands and watches from a distance.
  12. This is one of the boys I'm talking about they also have a black and white sister but, their mom was a black tri. They were born some time last summerish. This guy is our toughest he wont get with the program after 7 weeks. The closest he comes to me is 8 feet away and it takes at least 2 people to catch him if he gets away in the big yard. Their coat has an unusual wave to it in the shaft. Like it will never lay perfectly straight and smooth.
  13. How old did the vet think Taff was? I'm curious as I'm wondering if he is the dad to the boys we have here with the large female(who I thought was a male) who went home. They have similar hair and are Red tri. Physicially they are big like the mom and more aussie red but, the coat style seems like them.
  14. I would think you'ld have no trouble in tx getting a border collie. Our puppies are 5 weeks and many of the dogs from the texas seizure were more pregant in the beginning of April. We have found alot to like in all 14 of the dogs we recieved. Many are already adopted into good loving homes. Plus Tx is a place for pure breds in rescue. We are still getting requests to take dogs from there. Watch your petfinder look at the border collie rescue boards frequetly and check craigs list. I'm sure you can find the perfect border collie with a bit of looking BTW I probably have your perfect dog from the texas seizure but, she is now in Pa. She was adopted but, too much dog for the couple. She needs an agility home.
