  1. Sigh. I just switched to TOTW from Diamond because of the recall... Don't think it is on the list, but I expect it to be soon. This is why I am so eager to get my herd of cattle going. And our goat for milk. And our chickens... And the garden. I'm going to enjoy it so much when I know where all of my meat and such is coming from and then I can stop getting all of these darned emails about recalled dog food. Amen to the day I get 100 acres...
  2. Thought you guys may like to see these. They are pretty cool and clever. This shop offers several other breeds as well. http://www.etsy.com/shop/PopDoggie?ref=top_trail http://www.etsy.com/listing/90222641/border-collie-dog-breed-magnet-set http://www.etsy.com/listing/99275225/border-collie-modern-dog-art-herd-you Hope you enjoyed!
  3. Well, I am members of both this board, and an ACD board; I spend hours going through pretty much the first thread ever posted to the current ones. Hubbie thinks I am crazy. I think my best bet is to both go to herding trials, in addition to maybe even fostering both breeds. It is funny, because there are people on this board who have had ACD's and now pretty much only have BC's and on the other board, there are people who used to have BC's and now only have ACD's. I think it is a personality thing. I think that in the end it is finding a dog that fits into your lifestyle and your own perso
  4. Thank you for all of the great responses! And thank you for being so friendly, as some forums would just blow me off for not being a regular. I do like a dog that will stick like glue to my side and is specifically devoted to me. That is actually a really strong trait that I am looking for. What I like about ACD's: They seem to have more of an "off" switch, from what I have read. For example, after work is done, or if they don't have a job one day, they are okay with it. They don't obsess nearly as much over work as a BC, from what I have heard. I'm sure that it depends on the individu
  5. Alright, so I've never introduced myself here basically because of the fact that I do not have a BC. The main reason I joined this forum was to educate myself more on the breed before I made any decisions. A little history about myself: I am the old age of 20. I have owned dogs every second of my life, and up until three years ago I had pretty much no education on health testing, feeding good food, ect, ect. Well, because I am now a dedicated forum member to three separate boards I am learning new things every day. In the fourth grade I signed up for my first of five years with a dog 4H gr
  6. Oops. Sorry, that was my bad. It's a shame, he is gorgeous and sounds like an awesome dog. And I know that my Boxer would love having a friend... I am going to shoot the guy an email and see if I can't get an update on whatever happened to that young man.
  7. Male Black/Merle BC in Fort Collins, Colorado. Found him while I was browsing Craigslist... Sad. He is neutered and a little over a year. http://fortcollins.craigslist.org/pet/2926311718.html If I wasn't renting and had the place to have another dog, I would get him in a heartbeat. However, I don't so I hope someone on here knows of somebody who wants this sweet boy.
