My family just got a 3 month old smooth coated, BC last Friday.
Now before I get the "oh foul newb in the BC world" Let me say, I have had some BC experience. I've babysat BCs before and I spend more time with my next door neighbor's BC than they do. I've loved then for their intelligence and energy!
The lady we got him from found him as a 3-4 week old pup with his eyes still shut. She bottle feed and babied him along. She also trained him quite well, He knew a few comands and was house trained.(for the most part ) HE loves to herd our 5 weeks old kittens, it is the cutest thing!
