MikaismyBC Posted September 5, 2006 Report Share Posted September 5, 2006 Hello, I have a 10 month old BC. She is an awesome dog and I love her very much. Only thing is, I've heard (and knew before getting her) that it'd be a lot of work for me to care for her. Well that doesn't seem to be the case. I wasn't working when I got her, and spent a lot of time with her. She seems very happy. I walk her every day, no questions asked, for atleast half an hour, and usually an hour on weekends, even in rain and heavy snow (canada). Only thing is, when we aren't out having fun, she basically is relaxed and sleeps. She's responsive, and not sick...She's just not exactly this little insane dog I was prepared for. She's very calm and loves people and other dogs, I may have socialized her too much. We also play a lot at home. Is it possible she's just a "lazy" border collie? When she's left alone at home, she doesn't destroy the house or cause problems. She does like to follow me everywhere tho and make sure I can go to the bathroom, eat, do laundry, shower, etc safely heh, and I like that. She's also quiet and well mannered (except on the leash sometimes on walks, working on that). Oh and she likes to guard my house when sitting outside with me. Is it possible I give her enough stimulation and love that she's just happy? or could I be doing something wrong? Sorry bout the long post, thanks.
