  1. He sure is a handsome one. I like the split face! Lisa
  2. Thanks for the info. I've only been to one trial. It was at Away2Me farm in Puxico, Mo. I didn't know much of what was going on - mainly just curious. Lisa
  3. Wish I could meet them. I bet they're very high-in-demand people!
  4. I checked out the USBCHA website. That's neat to think my dogs' grandpa is doing all that!!
  5. Thank you!! I've just realized this must be the same Jack & Kathy knox that are listed on my dogs' pedigree!
  6. I have 2 dogs that have "Ettrick Meg" as their Dam. The parents of Meg are Ettrick Tweed & Peg, both owned by Jack & Kathy Knox. Thanks for the info. Lisa
  7. I'm new to all the BC pedigree stuff. I was looking at my dog's papers this evening. Can someone tell me what "Ettrick" means?? I asked on "Google," but it didn't tell me anything. Another question . . . what does "IMP." mean, like Imp.Don or Imp.Meg?? Sorry - this is probably a kindergarden question to most of you. Thanks for any responses. Lisa
  8. Can anyone tell me when Jack Knox has another clinic coming up??
  9. Thanks for your posts. I was really hoping no one suggested shooting the dog! I know six bc is probably too many for me, & I could handle one or two a lot better. Three of them (Sophie, Bear & Rebel) are pups out of Sadie, my first bc that past away in February. I can't bear to part with them. But I get mad at myself because I don't have enough time to spend with them all individually. My horses are very jealous. I need to spend more time with them too. Not enough hours in the day. Harvest, kids & keeping a school bus schedule. I'm ready for summer break already! I'll tr
  10. I have 4 bc of my own. Recently I acquired 2 more: one female, one male. The female is a littermate of my 21 mo. old male "Max." The owner of the other two & I had talked on the phone about our dogs when they were just pups. In August she called to ask if I would could provide her dogs with a home, as her husband now is very ill. She knew I was aware of the needs of a bc, and didn't want to take them to a shelter. Our local shelter (50 miles away) is a kill shelter. I agreed to take the dogs after visiting with them, but prayed I wasn't making a mistake. The male is about 16 mos. o
  11. You have picked a great breed of dog! Whether or not you keep it as a family pet will have to be up to you. I have six bc, and 4 kids. They keep me very busy. My kids are ages 11-18 though. When you can go back to the pet store, look for "Popular Dogs Series" magazine. They have them on lots of different dog breeds. It will say "Border Collies" at the top. There is lots of info in this magazine. It answered a lot of questions I had with Sadie, my first bc. As for the leash, ONLY when you can watch him closely, let him drag the leash with him. He will get use to it quicker. After
  12. Thanks all for the info. I looked at the pictures on the petfinder of "Bear." He's a very pretty dog. I'd like to know more about their temperment if anyone actually owns one.
  13. Has anyone ever seen a border collie/great pyrenese (spelling?) cross???
  14. We had some much needed rain here lately! But it was accompanied by lightening & thunder. We only have to have a little rumble in the distance & my 19 mo. old "Max" is ready to come in the house & hide. He has learned to come up on the front porch to the french doors, put his paw on the door handle, and bingo - the door flies open. In comes Max. This week when it was thundering he was joined by my other BCs, who are only 7 mos old. I had already locked the deadbolt on the door. I let them out of the kennels when I heard it thundering & they come up on the porch. I feel s
