  1. Put the toys away, tell him "That'll Do" or whatever command you choose to use and play only on your schedule. How long have you had him? Remember you are the boss. If you are giving into his pushing you to play you are only rewarding his requests. Lie down and stay are good reinforcers.
  2. http://www.bordercollie.org/boards/index.p...ic=9189&hl= THANK YOU SOOO MUCH EVERYONE! You have really helped ease my heart. Above is a link from a post a year ago, about Buddy playing with my Hubby for the first time. It was wonderful rereading it and all your kind words. Back to work tomorrow, but I promise to check in on weekends from now on.
  3. Thanks everyone I knew you would understand, when no one else would. I miss my shadow following me around the house. Briar and Rob keep looking for him too. It will take time. They definietly know that I need them close and they are so aware of when I need to touch a head or scratch an ear. Other than missing their Buddy they are both doing great. Briar's one kidney is still going strong and no seizures either. Rob is still my fishing pal and can read a trout stream as well as any human angler. Hope you are all doing well and I promise to check in whenever I can. Thank you again for all your kind thoughts of Buddy.
  4. Monday, Jan 21st at 2AM, we said goodbye to our old boy Buddy. Though he was only with us for 2 years he brightened each and every one of those wonderful days with him. We miss you Buddy, but know that you are waiting for us at the bridge. I haven't been on in a long while and miss you all very much. No access at work and a busy life makes it hard. Just wanted you all to know about the loss of our wonderful old gentleman, because I know you all more than anyone would understand the big hole in my heart right now. He went peacefully in my arms. Bless his old heart.
  5. LOL! Sandra they just know that you are paying extra special attention to those 20 meters and will be sure to see them!
  6. Welcome to the boards! Oreo is one pretty lady!! Senior dogs are the greatest!! We took on a 13 year BC mix when we bought our new house in addition to the two BCs we already had. Our Buddy is wonderful. Oreo looks like she is sooo happy to be home at last. Alaska's right, your fate is sealed! Like the commercial says, You can never have enough Oreos!!
  7. He's a cute little twirp whatever he is. I think you guys are right on some hound being in there and maybe some pitbull. He's is awfully cute!
  8. Yep bath rugs here too, cheap and easy to wash. Rob's gets washed often he gets car sick
  9. I just found this thread! WOW, She looks wonderful! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, to both of you for help this sweet old girl. From my old Buddy to Lady - Welcome Home!
  10. I'm with Paula, I just stand them up in my freezer. I do run the kongs through the dishwasher after each use, so they are clean when I fill them again. RDM, the Woo definitely needs some bling. Red Dog is way to dignified for that though!
  11. You should come south and spend a day playing at the lake with us.

  12. Good for you for doing your research and and BIG THANK YOU for considering only rescue/shelter!! All I can say is take the time to find the dog that is right for you. Consider an older dog 3 to 5 years old (which is still way young in a border collie). We have three dogs which have the run of the house and dog doors to their yard and they are home alone for up to 10 hours during the week. But when we get home there is no sitting and watching the news in our house. It's out the door to the park and lot's of play and interaction. They are walked a minimum of an hour in the morning before we leave. It may sound bad but if you are willing to dedicate yourself outside of work to your dog it can work. Good luck to you and let us know how it goes. As far as camping and fishing our Rob is the best fly fishing pal in the world!
  13. Poor guy, thanks for taking him on. Our Briars seizures are totally under control at this point and not a big deal to give her meds twice a day. Make sure he has lots of water on hand, the meds make them thirsty. And have a bit of vanilla ice cream on hand in case he dose seize, the cold and the sugar help them recover.
