  1. What a precious little girl! Looking forward to seeing more of her here on the forum!
  2. OMG she is precious!! Love puppy pics! Can't offer much advice as to the peeing. Only thing that comes to mind is maybe she wants to pee on something soft and absorbent the way the grass is outside? Outside of her crate, is it flooring or carpet etc? Good luck and let us know how it goes! And welcome to the forum! I'm new too and have gotten some great advice here.
  3. First off...what a cutie!! As for the zoomies, Rylie was and still is the exact same way! He is now 6 months old but has done the evening zoomies all along. I discovered by trial and error that he needed to go to bed much earlier than we were taking him to his crate. His last meal is about 5 PM and after a short playtime, he goes out for a potty break and then more playtime inside until about 6. Then we start with some more gentle play or snuggles or light training and by 6:15 or 6:30 he's into his nighttime crate which is in the bedroom. At 10 when I am going to bed, sometimes he whines and g
  4. Just from what I see in the photo, I see pit and maybe lab mix. I'm sure others might have better ideas.
  5. Thanks! That's what I figured but then thought there might be more to it. I will start doing that when I add photos.
  6. Cute photos! Our cats agree with your cats!
  7. Thank you Flora & Molly and Lawgirl. Not sure how to do the Rylie thread. Not too familiar with the ins and outs of forums.
  8. I hope you all meant it when you said you loved pictures because here is another one of Rylie!
  9. Perfect! I love the way choosing names just clicks when the right one is found. I haven't heard of that film so will have to check it out!
  10. Rylie having a taste of sheepskin from his favorite tug toy.
  11. Anybody down your way use Border Collies for hunting? Mine is very good at it.

      I really have no idea. I guess I only see or hear about people with retrievers and coonhounds but then I'm not much in contact with anyone that hunts. I don't see why a border collie couldn't be trained to hunt as much as any other dog though. As smart as they are, they could probably be trained to take the shotgun or rifle and do the actual hunting! Wouldn't that be something to see! :lol:

  12. Well I know they are all individuals but Rylie at exactly 5 months was 33.2 lbs and not fat at all. I would say his weight is about where it should be, not fat nor thin, just muscular and sleek. There is a photo of him on the Gallery if you'd like to see him.
  13. Urge to herd, we don't have foxtails and I have definitely examined his pads and between his toes. I have been reading a lot about Pano and I'm beginning to agree with GentleLake that it very well may be Pano. Regardless of what it is, I have no idea how I'll be able to keep him quiet and calm until it clears! I haven't let him do any running around today and right now he is bouncing off the walls! We have done some training and puzzle treat dispensers and other calm activities but he really has a lot of energy!! I may need medication for me for the duration of this!! lol
  14. Well GentleLake, I was going to take Rylie to the vet but he is closed for Thanksgiving until Monday. I'll hooefully be able to get him in then. He still plays fine some and then will limp. The other night he snuggled and slept next to me on the couch for about an hour and then when taking him to his crate he limped fairly badly. When he had first settled on the couch earlier, he wasn't limping at all. So I want to find out what's going on! It's the fine for a while and then the limping that definitely says something is going on!
