  1. I know of a 2 year old femaie who is being fostered because original owner could not handle her. She is being brought to sheep this weekend and has lots of folks helping look for a home for her as her foster has asked us all for help. She is in Louisiana and I can forward you the contact information and pictures. She is bred from herding lines. And with a herding person now.. Diane Barrentine

  5. Yes, Lex is still lost. I am getting 5 or 6 calls a week, as I have him posted just about everywhere. I have driven hundreds of miles looking for him. Lots of nice folks looking, lots of BC's look like his picture unfortunately. Sightings happen pretty regularly still, which is encouraging. Thanks for the suggestion about the lost and found site. The In Defense of Animals local, Duck Hill, MS director Doll Stanley and a friend encouraged me to start a FaceBook Page for lost and found animals in our tri-county area. I did that Lost and Found Animals of Carroll, Montgomery and Grenada County, MS. There is a pretty good group of folks around here to have had their dogs stolen, or come up missing without a trace. But I am praying and looking, and I do thank everyone for their continued prayers that the right person finds Lex and I get him back! God Bless,
  6. I am unable to use two rooms for Saturday and Sunday in at The Lounge Hotel and Bar, PENRITH for September 17th and 18th. I have a room a double from Thursday nights through Monday, that I also cannot use. The cancellation policy is very liberal for these rooms and I can cancel them anytime before 2 days before the arrival date. I will be there with a small group of family members and would be happy to work with anyone wanting to go. I am also going to Scotland the weekend before, which I would encourage anyone thinking about going to do both as they are so close geographically and in time! I would be happy to have a new friend there who would enjoy the trials, and would help you with the details of your trip, if desired. Please contact me here and we can arrange how to get together off the board, Diane Barrentine www.theloungehotelandbar.co.uk
  7. I like that idea, hopefully I can find the time! Diane
  8. Thanks for all of this and again to Karen who has been posting and crossposting. I have put him on my FB page about 10 times since June 7th. He is very friendly, but he is also a big chicken, but not afraid of thunder like some of my other bc's! But he is very submissive and comes up to folks and immediately rolls on his belly to be scratched. I broke him of this by only petting him when he was sitting, not upside down on the ground! He was raised and lived happily on a sheep farm 120 miles from here for the first 6 years of his life. His old owner taught him everything about herding sheep, and won all kinds of USBCHA trials with him in Mississippi/Alabama. The old owner was ready to move on to his younger dogs and was convinced that Lex would be a good fit with me and my young dogs and could teach me a lot, which he did. I bought him last July. We have run ASCA, HTDA, AKC and USBCHA trails and done very well at all kinds of courses and I had gotten as far as possible in 11 months on sheep, ducks and cattle with him as my & our ability together allowed. Lex made me a 200% better handler, and I have two young females that I have owned since birth that I am still working, and the lessons I have learned with him have made me much better at handling both Sadie and Hannah. I have contacted every vet, hung posters all the way to his old farm. Been to every center of every little town on the way and talked to plenty of folks, hung flyers, truck stops, UPS, FedX, all postal workers along the roads have been flagged down by me and educated, along with of course every mail person in our county, that was the first place I went after our initial search was to my mail carrier and the post master in our little town. IF he does show up somewhere I am hoping that someone will do the right thing and take the reward money I I will pay to get him back! Aren't there plenty of great border collies out there! I will find them one! Or give them one from my next litter!!! Again thanks for everyone's comments and help! Pray the right person finds him! That is my prayer just about every minute!

  9. I am still looking for my 7 year old male, unaltered, Border Collie, Lex, last seen chasing a deer from our farm in deep woods near Coila, MS in Carroll County which is between the cities of Greenwood and Winona, MS. Nearest 4 lane Hwy 82 and Interstate 55 is 20 miles away. Lost June 7, 2011. He is black and white with blaze between the nose and one ear tipped and one pricked, 37 lbs, freckles on legs and stomach and a few on his nose. USBCHA open trail dog ability on sheep, whistle trained and very friendly, not dog aggressive. He will come to his name and will search for stock. None of the farmers around here have seen him to date. He may be traveling to his old farm 120 miles from here in Macon, MS. He is microchipped and when he left here he had a collar on with my number and reward on it. I have advertised in all local papers, animal shelters, animal control officers, vets in North Mississippi and Jackson and Memphis, TN. Picture ad in the trade winds, talked to animal communicator who says he is alive. Inserted flyers in newspapers and have 40 posters hung around the county/cities on the way to Macon offering a reward. He is posted on several lost dog sites including Find Fido and Dog Amber Alert. I have posted a picture here. Any and all help or suggestions would be appreciated. Please cross post anywhere! Thanks, Diane Barrentine
