  1. Hi, I have two border collies (3-year old male - Cody and a 1-year old female -Zoey, who I'd like to get involved in herding. My initial interest is recreational and I want to do something constructive with them. They definitely need more stimulation than I am currently providing them. Cody definitely is the priority because he is much higher energy. He is well behaved (with the exception of on the leash when bikes or runners pass by). Extremely intelligent (as expected). Does anyone know of any herding instruction in the Bucks County or surrounding areas? I would certainly travel 1 - 2 hours for lessons. Thanks in advance Andrea
  2. Actually, those are my friends' children. Around 9 or so she gets the zoomies for about 45 minutes. Then she gets pooped and falls asleep in her crate.
  3. Thanks... she is a real darling. She's a pretty mellow pup - whereas Cody was like the flying rabbit from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". They're getting along fairly well. I'm very lucky; both of them are wonderful.
  4. Be careful what you ask for, I have tons of pics. I'll post tonight.
  5. Like humans, dogs have two sets of teeth in their lives. The 28 baby teeth erupt through the gums between the third and sixth weeks of age. Puppies do not have to grind much food, so they do not have molars. Puppy teeth begin to shed and be replaced by permanent adult teeth at about four/five months of age. Although there is some variation in breeds, most adult dogs have 42 teeth, with the molars coming last, at about six or seven months.
  6. Hi all, I justed wanted to let you know I got a new border collie pup. Cody now has a little sister. She is absolutely adorable and has a wonderful temperament. Cody is being a wonderful big brother and is treating her quite well. A few growls here and there, but he's being a sweetie pie. Unfortunately I haven't settled on a name yet.
  7. I'm currently working on my dissertation and I feel pretty guilty when Cody brings his 1)balls, 2) stuff alligator, 3) stuff eel, 4) frisbee, 5) yadda, yadda.... to play. I try to take 15-20 min breaks to play with him. What's nice is that I can study outside in my yard while the Codmeister plays
  8. Well, since I haven't heard from the breeder for several days I think I'm going to go with a male pup. Now I just have to find one.
  9. I am definitely interested in 9522. Love the tummy rub position. I'm not sure what the cost is for IH.
  10. Sounds like you're covering all the bases. I'm sure you determined that the other dog is up-to-date on his vaccinations. I'd still consider getting a tetanus shot.
  11. Okay, so here's a question... would a submissive male like Cody do better with a female or male? Cody is quite attached to me. I am the only human in the family that he lives with. Which is a natural segue to.... If there are any single, bc lovin' guys out there, let me know! j/k
  12. I went through my emails and the only statement made was that she wouldn't place another male in a companion household that has another male. Cody has a bit of work to do with getting comfortable with children. I want to optimize the chances that my next bc will be good with children and adults as well. Cody is good with adults - men and women.
  13. She really didn't elaborate on why she wouldn't place one of her males with Cody. Cody is not dominant at all. He is neutered. In fact, he can be quite submissive with female dogs. My friend's coon hound mix often humps him and I have to intervene. He just looks at me like, "Mom, what is she doing? Tell her to knock it off." Sometimes he'll respond by getting away from her and wrestling. I can go through the initial email and see if she provided an informative explanation. She knows what I'm interested in... I like cuddly and affectionate dogs (but I'm sure that it's hard to tell so early on).
