  1. Most people own property and then get a dog. I was offered to rent part of a house from a Border Collie Owner. I was allowed my own dog. I developed a real bond with my Border Collie and then had to get rid of her as my landlady's husband did not like the dogs together while I was out. Landlady did not mind and the dogs were fine together when I was around. Pet friendly rentals are scare where I live. So, if you love Border Collies like I do and can't afford a place, think long and hard before renting a place. Vancouver, Canada

The dog was left for 45 minutes as the stop took longer than planned. 10 minutes is all it takes for a dog to pass away in a warm vehicle. Please keep your dog safe and enjoy the coming summer
