  1. He is so stinking cute! Congratulations! He sounds like a blast . I love puppy exuberance towards the world.
  2. @Lawgirl That is a solid equation! Im beginning to think I need more border collie stuff. I only have a hoodie and a shirt with border collies on it plus my phone case. Ooo and a figurine. Definitely need more border collies items
  3. I feed 4Health currently. They have gotten raw before, premade raw, homemade food, grain free kibble, totw, Fromm, Victors, and I have currently settled with 4Health. - I hate how messy raw is, it doesn’t travel well, and the price is wayyy out of budget for me. I was always concern they weren’t getting all their nutritional needs with just raw and a LOT of people I know who feed raw also do supplements(Oils, vitamins, digestive enzymes, etc...). - I loved homemade but it’s time consuming and doesn’t travel well. I would like to feed victors again. I like that it was “made/sourced in
  4. I adore border collies. I think they are the best breed out there for me. But I don’t think they are a good fit for most people. As long as I can satisfied their needs I hope to have border collies for as long as possible. My sadness I can’t afford more border collies.
  5. Those are awesome! Thanks for sharing.
  6. I more worry about the general public then theft. I try not to leave my dogs outside unattended but if I do I have direct line of sight to them and it’s for something quick.
  7. Cressa has definitely been acting older. More tired... more senile moments... Not as hungry... however she still wants to be included in activities and can still go for 30-40 minute hikes. She just had some more blood work done and it wasn’t too bad. Her creatinine levels are still high but her other levels are still good. The vet thinks she is still just borderline stage 2/3 kidney disease.
  8. Autumn is my favorite time of years. One of the reasons I love Pennsylvania. It helps that it’s great for pictures. Cressa who is over 15.5 years old. She is the grey one with a blue eye. Valek who is going on 8 years old and is the bestest boy ever. Parker who is 4 years old and knows without a doubt he is a good boy. Some of the pictures Include my sister dogs: Eli who is 10 and is the red head Rosco who is a shepherd mix and is 12 years old.
  9. @D’Elle I was hoping to get him interested in disc so I could do competition with him. He is a ton of fun to interact with. I was hoping/dreaming of playing disc with the terrier when Val gets too old to play and prior to growing out another border collie. I know he doesn’t HAVE to. I got the terrier to be a companion and he excels at that. Just curious how to get him to have interest if possible. @gcv-border you are right. When it’s something the terrier has to think about and repetitive he loses interest really quick. I’m planning on getting him into a nose work class since he would
  10. I hope it’s ok to post this here since it for a dog just not a border collie. My terrier is a super fun dog. He is a little over four years old. I have had him since he was 4 months old. He is super athletic and energetic however he has like no toy drive. He doesn’t typically look for toy. The only time he “wants” a toy is if Valek has a toy then it’s the best toy ever. However saying that even if my terrier gets the toy he doesn’t hold onto it. Typically he will drop the toy once the game of chase is on since he wanted the “chase me” game and not the toy. Everything I read says use a tr
  11. Oh and I also give Val a chore. It’s his job to find his toys, pick them up, and bring them to me for me to put away.
  12. I love the wobblers and the egg. My sister swears by those monster mouths. Val will make up his own solo game with tennis balls and sometimes he just loves laying on his back squeaking them ... other times he hides it under a blanket so he has to find it again. One game Val enjoys is me getting his toy and putting it under a solid object(bowl, tubberwear, etc) and letting him figure out how to get the toy. Or I put a couple treats in an empty cool whip or oatmeal container and let him figure out how to open and get the treats. The bones are antlers or marrow bones. Something that tak
  13. I haven’t given her any additional supplements, so other then the broccoli that’s chopped up it’s would need to be in what she is eating. I was tempted to look at powder supplement. My line of thought was to get her to eat again and I didn’t want to fight her on another pill. Lol I generally just buy groceries store basic eggs and since I think it’s typically bleached the shells aren’t safe to eat? But I could be wrong?
