  1. Yeah I'm going to have to get her a cone I already know it >.< I know, I hate that she has to be in there at night but since stray cats wander into the backyard and raccoons as well, I don't want her getting hurt or biting one and end up getting horrible sick. Once we get a bigger place she is for sure staying inside with me at night. She is well trained and she likes to hang out inside for a bit with me before she starts scratching at the door to let her out to use the bathroom after she's done she either stays outside or comes back inside and sleeps.
  2. So yesterday, September 16th, was my Eevee's birthday. I'm still sad that's she is so big already because it feels like just yesterday she was first brought home. And what a lucky coincidence that Snapchat had birthday filters yesterday! Her first night with me. She was so small... November 13t, 2015. (((
  3. That's the thing, our backyard is cement, the only places for her to be able to dig is behind the shed but it's a small patch of dirt surrounded by recyclables. She literally rips the metal. I've made an appointment for her to get spayed this week so I'm thinking during that week she stays inside my room with me so she isn't out in the cold. She does have a dog house for privacy. But I'm going to drop her off to get spayed before I go in for my new job orientation and my mom is picking her up. I know she's attached to me as I am attached to her, she runs up to me when she sees me and jumps into my arms nearly knocking me to the ground.
  4. We live with my stepdads family until we get a place of our own and the house is separated so our half is a lot smaller so we don't have room for anything. It's more of an apartment than a house for us. She is crate trained and house trained the only problem is we just have no room inside our house.
  5. Well she's in our backyard with our other dogs and our German Shepherd is neutered but I haven't had time to go get her spayed. She has toys, but I do think she's just bored of those toys. She had an elk antler that she absolutely loved but someone stole it recently. But no, no puppies. Our Terrier recently had puppies so we have a house full of tiny fluff balls. I was thinking it was separation anxiety. When she escapes the kennel I hear her outside my window and Whenever she comes into the house she'll go straight to my room (she was an inside dog her first few months) so I'm thinking it is that. The thing is my room is ridiculously small and crowded. She is house trained so she wouldn't have problems with peeing/pooping inside. But we're moving soon so when we do move I'll be keeping her inside and outside. I'm starting 2 new jobs soon and I want her to be okay with me being away for hours. She won't be alone of course, we have our other dogs and my mom or brother will be taking over the walks for her once I start working. Is there any way to ease her into not seeing me for hours at a time?
  6. So I recently purchased a 10x10x10 metal kennel for Eevee and she goes in there when I go to bed. I take her for walks/runs daily so she gets her exercise and she plays actively with our other dogs. However my mom noticed that she somehow managed to make a hole at the bottom of her kennel and squeezes through the hole. My dad fixed it and turned the side where the hole was against a wall but shortly after she made another one. Is there a reason why she does this? She doesn't spend all day in there and only is there at night or if she gets in trouble. She's very calm and if she isn't playing with our other dogs she's asleep under our patio table. Could she be in heat? She was bleeding a month or two ago. She's going to be 1 on September 16th.
  7. I only ask cause I knew someone who had a Border Collie and her dogs paws got really bad abrasions from walks.
  8. Next Friday I finally get to bring home my first BC puppy. I bought everything I would need for her, except food (I can't decide which to buy). I am currently unemployed and do not attend school due to some health issues, so taking her on walks and runs (when she's older) would be no problem at all. I do plan on taking her to the park with me and small walks around the block, does anyone buy their pups shoes for small walks and park trips? I would walk her around my house but a shed is being built in our backyard and the fence is being changed and cement being added in some places in the front yard. So basically my house is a construction zone so to speak and the only places to walk through is a good portion of the backyard for our two older dogs, but that has their houses, food bowls, water, etc. I don't wanna keep her from getting small amounts of exercise, though i do plan on playing with her daily, I would like to take her on small walks to get her used to being outside and on a leash early on. Since my house is off limits, would it be okay for me to get her some shoes and take her on small walks and to the park? Thank you!
  9. Thanks everyone! I will be sure to post pictures when I get her. I already take lots of pictures of my four dogs as is, especially our new arrival, a male Yorkie I named Hulk, as in The Incredible Hulk. >.<
  10. Hi there! I'm new here and I am getting my first Border Collie puppy on November 13th. I was wondering, I've been doing a lot of research especially when it comes to puppy/dog food and was wondering what would be best to feed a 2 month old puppy? I've read that it depends on how the dog reacts to the food, I have 4 other dogs; 2 of my dogs eat Pedigree and the other 2 eat Iams and they have no problems at all. I've read that feeding Border Collies raw is best in terms of health. But I have also read some prefer to cook up their own recipe when it comes to feeding them. I'm ready in all ways for my new puppy except for food because I don't want her to get sick from the food. Is it just a trial and error sort of thing? The current owner is feeding the pups Purina Puppy Chow which I want to steer the puppy away from as I have bought this brand and it made my dog, in his puppy days, very sick. Thank you!
