  1. Now that I got that post out of the way before people show up to my house with pitch forks and torches...... We only had a flash of insanity that I know would have been mostly negitive, which is what I expected and hoped for to reassure myself that it wasn't a good idea. Thanks to those who did so without leaving a bloody mess behind... I do have to make mention though that when we did do our own research on BC's for almost a full year... we started looking for a breeder. We contacted dozens across several states and the overwhelming answer was DENIED. We were looking for mostly a famil
  2. Ok after 3 posts -- I get the idea... We will definatly NOT breed her. It's early in the AM and I guess my inital hesitation was correct. Best I post this prior to getting burned at the stake. Thanks everyone....
  3. As I am writing this I am shaking my head thinking, "What are we getting ourselves into". As with our previous posts about our BC Kaycee going into heat, we had a long discussion about the "possibility" of maybe breeding her once....The problem is neither of us have any experience with this. Now I have begun to do some reading through out the internet just as we had no idea about BC's before we got Kaycee. We also were involved in "visiting" Kaycee the day after she was born and every week there after. I am looking for any and all advice and whats involved in to process from beginning (stu
  4. I had to post this for all the humor it's worth. My Wife and I decided to go out on a cruise last night with our neighbors and we left of 2 dogs at home as we usually do. Well, earlier in the day my 4 y/o daughter insisted on putting together a ABC puzzle we got her a few years back. She layed it all perfect out on the floor so proud of herself and we thought nothing of it. Our daughter then went to the grandparents house for the evening and we went out about 8pm. We return @ 3am and find the house in perfect condition we left it. We let the dogs out, played a little and just as soon as
  5. Our BC was doing the BC crouch and stare at about 9 weeks -- here's her photo from then:
  6. Our BC loves ANY ball she get get her paws on. They say BC all need a job to do - hers is to fetch and play with any ball 24/7/365!!! She loves her jolly ball which is the only ball that seems to last long enough without being completely destroyed, but even that is slowly coming to an end. She is small herself, 31 lbs, but has a knack for destroying any toy with in days or weeks. The jolly ball for now seems to be sufficient, but will keep my eye on this thread to see if someone has any ideas...
  7. Here's a web site that has quite a bit of border collie stuff, stickers, and you name it.... Border Collie Stuff Web Site
  8. Here's Kaycee's Right Back Paw when she broke it 6 weeks ago and the other picture is from 2 weeks ago when she had the cast removed. Kaycee was only less than 6 months old and jumped in the air to catch a bad bounce outside and landed all her weight on this one foot. If I just had heeded peoples warnings about age and jumping - I probably would have been more careful...
  9. I'm sorry to hear all that has happened to both you and Jin. Jin I'm sure will recover -- he just needs some time and reassurance. As far as training goes - this may be a perfect opportunity to look into some formal obedience and look further into possibly trainign him as an assistance type dog. There are dogs out there for everything from siezures, blindness any many other disorders. Why couldn't Jin be taught about your condition and what to do in those emergencies. As intelligent as BC are it should be to hard, its just getting the proper education. How to find that - I'm not sure --
  10. Now why didn't anyone think of saying this earlier??????????
  11. As far as this post goes -- even if you live in Canada -- it does get warm - especially if the car is in the sun, most of Rangers rules actually apply in almost all climates
  12. Very Well Said!!!! We take Dixie and Kaycee just about everywhere -- even short errands. They love picking up my daughter @ school. We go to the bank and they get "cookies". Or we'll make an extra trip to petsmart and let them walk around and get some social time in with the "people". On hot days we mostly leave our dogs @ home -- if I have to take them with me - we leave the air conditioning on high and park in the shade and its usually for < 10-15 minutes. Never longer -- I'm paying for central air -- someone mind as well use it right??
  13. Great to hear!!!! A Sprain is not such a big deal -- although once again -- keeping them still is.... at the very best, just keep Bess from doing any rough play in the house -- We use a tether thats screwed to the wall stud and has about a 8-10 ft length. Keeps them somewhat confined without having to be crated. Best wishes!!! Erik
  14. Sorry to hear your puppy is hurt. Our Kaycee (6 mo old) jumped in the air to catch a ball off a bad bounce and twisted mid air and landed all her weight on her back foot. Fx all 4 metatarsals We just had her cast taken off last week (wednesday) after having it on for 4 weeks. We were told that the 2 pins inserted in the 2 middle bones are still healing and to try and keep Kaycee still. Do these vets know anything about BC's!!!!! You can't crate them all day and they just can't possibly sit still for more than 5 minutes. Shes racing around the house and wants to play ball 24/7. We te
  15. Just wishing a Happy Easter from Our Pack to Yours!!! Erik, Jenn, Leigh-Anne, Dixie & Kaycee
