  1. If you are going to bring up the past, then go to the 4th page, post #72, she is a beautiful dog, just not suited for our family. I walk her, take her for bike rides, she swims whenever she see's water, we go out lots, and yes she is an inside dog as has been for 99% of the time I've had her. Border Collie's are just so active and she's not for us, Period.

  3. I have loved my 3 year old BC for over a year, but still find her difficult. I have managed to train her in a few areas, but feel she really needs ' work' to do. Does any one have sheep that she could learn to round up? She has been around sheep before but doesn't really ' know' what she is doing but I'm sure she would pick it up. She is such a lovely girl, great around other dogs and children, just don't feel she is right for us. We are in Boise, Idaho.
  4. So sorry to hear of your loss. Lance will have left his friend with lots of good advise for ways to love you just as he did.
  5. Four years ago, a neighbor kindly minded my then eight month baby, while i went to a kindergarten intro. I came back to find my son had been bitten by her dog, his face looked awful. My son was holding grapes and you know how young babes are, he was holding them out and the dog wanted one and as my son went to eat the grape the dog also tried to get the grape, hence his face being bitten. This dog was some little yappy thing, and she also had two very big dogs, outside, all of which are 'vegetarians', and were given grapes as treats. I am forwarding this article to her, although she has given her dogs grapes for years.
  6. You know, I am seriously thinking of getting some shoes for my older dog. We now have wooden floors, but she just can't keep up, she keeps skidding and slipping over, that certainly isn't good for the old hips!
  7. Sadly, my dog was born without a nose She doesn't always get the balls in the day time, and as for bringing them to my hand, no chance - so much for the smarter breed!
  8. It is still dark in the mornings, and still dark early in the evenings, and Sophie is not content with just walking, but we have lost lots of balls. Surely someone knows of a ball that lights up when it is bounced, or something similar? I've thought this for years, do you know of any?
  9. I give my dogs a pureed veg side dish, with carrots, cucumber, and celery, and they both eat it, but if, by any chance, a lump of carrot gets into their food they won't eat it????
  10. Lunar, Love the animal 'card', way to go! Sophie, Lucy and I wish you all the very best Christmas time. And thank you all for your love and support.
  11. I took Sophie out this morning, and after a run about, I got back into my car and drove off down the quiet road we were in. As expected, Sophie ran after me, I then turned round and she ran after me again, and then I had Sophie (BC) and Lucy (16yr GS) get back in the car, at least she got some good running in. I used to do that with Lucy when she was younger. When we close to my moms, I would let her out of the car, and she would run behind the car, again on a quiet to dead road. Muy mom didn't like me doing that, but no harm done.
  12. My Sophie has recently learnt to ring a Christmas bell that I have hooked over the patio door handle, for that purpose. Good, ah? Yet my 16yr GS, when she 'needs' to go out, she has to go, now! and sometimes lately I haven't seen her need, or woken up in time, not nice.
  13. After a nice walk with the kids and the dogs, on the way home my 16yr GS was walking like a crab, I let her rest a bit and she does walk a tad sideways due to bad hips. I even tried to carry her some of the way but apart from her being heavy, she didn't appear to want me to carry her. It was a slow walk back but once home I noticed the carpet and lino in the kitchen had blood traces on them. Must have just happened, as we never saw this on the side walk. I checked out Lucy, and her pads on the dragging side were bleeding, I feel so bad! She has never done that before, perhaps it is time to take shorter walks. Any advice?
