    I am an avid sheep dog gal and Certified Master Groomer, so anything dog is most interesting to me. But too, I love fishing, fishing, and oh, did I say fishing?!

  1. Thank you for looking that up for me Julie, Id found that post too in my search, but there are not as many pics as I remember. But it was worth a try. Perhaps I can go back in my old blog around that date and see if I have any in there. Think I was still blogging fairly regular then. Been enjoying the pics of your young dogs. Be fun to see how they progress. Thanks again!
  2. Hi All! Just needed to ask a quick Q.of Julie P. And Rebecca Shouse. Do you gals remember when Becca had that nice BBQ and work day at her place a number of yrs ago? We took a lot of pics that day, and Ive lost all my pics on a busted computer and can get them back. I brought my tools and table out and groomed Becca's Chinese crested and Laura;s little brown dog that day. I looked in the archives, but cant pin point the date. It seems like it was in june. Can u gals direct me to that thread or a date and I can find the pics? Thanks!
  3. Border collies have the "Teflon" type of coat that sheds dirt easily and always looks glossy and clean. But please, dont discount what a good professional groom can do for u and your dogs. Finding skin and allergy probs, sores, ear and or physical ailments that a person may miss or not nitice in time. Teeth and anals are ck'd and done, ect. Seeing a good professional groomer from time to time, a very good idea, and keeps folks like me working!
  4. I handle many breeds of dogs large and small daily. I do things to them they dont really care to have done. If/when, one takes a dive for me, they immediatly know its wrong and go submissive. Some to the point of peeing a little. Face licking and hand licking with an almost Im sorry smile on thier lips. Yes. I believe guilt is an honest asupmtion of what the dog is feeling
  5. Nice vid. Love the kinda values they are teaching thier girls : )
  6. Another troll bites the dust. Shame his poor collie will continue to get bitten by beer cans. You can only be helpful to those who genuinly want help.
  7. I would suggest a pin brush, but the type that has the round bubble like tips. Also wouldnt reccomend any human shampoo at all, as the ph is set up for humans and not for dogs which will dry the skin and coat out more. Change in dog food perhaps? A dood product for replenishing skin and coat is a remoisterizer, that you can delute and spray on, or use after bathing. Its like hand lotion for dogs. I will try to find the link to thier website and post it. Great product, and my go to in the shop for dogs with no actual skin prob other than dryness from elements.
  8. Heres a question for you mike. You claim to know dogs and have had many and trained many thru out your life time, so what breeds have you had, and for what purpose and to what level have you trained them?
  9. Laurae, i was looking for the "like" button! Oops. Lmao. No, new OP. We're all stupid. Dont mind us. We know nothing. Im sure your "breeder" ( cough) can advise you much better. Sounds as though you'll believe anything they say, but us? The history on this board says nothing of the experience this crew holds right?
  10. If your dog is indoors, the heater tends to dry out the coat and skin in winter. Talk with your groomer to help find a grooming regimine to restore skin and coat quality. Brushing with the proper brush, ( as some brushes tend to break and split coat)regularly also helps bring up and distribute the natural oils. As well as adding a suppliment.
  11. It does beg the question tho, why a Collie for a gaurdian job. Certinly since youve done all the research and taked extensivly with the breeder (and i use that term loosly) would you choose a herding dog for a gaurdians job. Id really like to know who your "breeder" is, that they would assure you that your purposes for obtaining a collie were in line and on target for this breed, as no reputable breeder of any consequense would allow a pup to go into a stuation such as your describing. Or are you just being a troll.....
  12. I started out with 4 of them but lost the 2 hens after the first yr. So just had the toms. They were grand farm yard buddies. Followed me around like a dog they did. But b/careful when it storms cause they really arent very bright at all, and will drown them selves inna storm looking up at the rain! Mine roosted with the chickens too in the hen house and the chickens didnt seem to mind at all, and the 2 toms got along famously as well. Enjoy them, they really are sweet critters.
  13. here ya go girl! From one turkey to another! lol this was one of my turkey pets too. I luv em!
