  1. http://www.glenhighlandfarm.com/aboutghf.htm Such a wonderful place that loves Border Collies.
  2. yea love this young girl so much I am like a over protective parent that is paranoid.
  3. Also this.The Border collie is one of the breeds that has a particularly high incidence of IE. Suggested incidences of IE in dogs vary from 0.5 to 20% in some severely affected breeds (Podell 1995, Mellersh 2010). From data on estimates of total dog population in the UK and on the percentage of all micro-chip registered dogs that are Border collies (Lucy Asher, 2011, personal communication), we estimate that the UK population size of this breed may be around 400,000.
  4. Gloria this heart breaking video along with my sheltie is why I wanted to learn more. Ladd my sheltie is gone and cant imagine losing Ziggy this way. Maybe a worry wart but this can be a heart breaking devastating disease. Thank you for sharing your comments.
  5. bconace. That was a terrific article thanks for posting, Stop just lurking and join the fun.
  6. I just happened to notice that some dogs are more susceptible than other I had a sheltie that had it. It was more of a generl knowledge question than a specific case. Thank you for the responses.
  7. Again didn't want the stalking statement to be an issue. I know now what that that was about but I will leave that to your imagination. Laser light was way over stated. I have one dog that loves the laser a rotti mix. I took the BC out with her and learned a fast lesson. BC had no interest in the point, The BC circled around and in a blink snatched the light out of my hand it was the source and not the point. after a laser extravaganza as the BC ran around it was and is a lock up toy. She wanted the source and not the point dot.
  8. Thank you Mum24 Very nice some of the questions I asked have had awesome results a lot of them are from inexperienced owners. BC are awesome cant love our girl more. Even with the 101 phycology she needs. I get so down on this sight sometimes. you know I was actually stalked by a poster at first I hung in there I was even put on time out. I am here only because I had the desire not to be chased away and read posts for what they are worth. Some very good. some bad but my love for the dog and not the people have kept me on this sight. I want the best for my dog so I will and willing take all the opinions agreed or disagreed as long as I take away something that makes my pup better.
  9. Really Gentile lake you guys ranted for three pages all I did was said enough you got your point across.
  10. she was even chastised for the sock obsession. Well guess what have 3 of 4 dogs that want my sock its your scent they need. Dogs are an odd bread. None the same just give your all to help people politely without ranting. I am not trolling I just feel sad that a potential good poster was chased away. So what help you thought you gave her was minor compared to the help she may have needed in the future.
  11. You put the thought there I think she would have been fine without chasing her away. No matter what she said the advise was there and she seems to have given it some serious consideration. She is right this thread was hijacked. Everyone forgot about the poor poster trying decide on a border collie.
  12. I am not sure she did ignore the warning. I didn't read anything she said that gave me that indication.
