ItsADogsLyfe Posted January 14, 2012 Report Share Posted January 14, 2012 I bought a DVD at Tractor Supply for $5 and it has 10 movies on it. At least two of them are either about or have Border Collies in them. The first was Owd Bob, which I know has been discussed here before. Was funny the dog that was supposed to be a "champion" sheepdog in the movie, could not work sheep at all. In fact it looked like the dog was entirely obedience trained as it ran with tail up in the air and never once looked at the sheep. Second movie I watched was "The Proud Rebel" with Alan Ladd and Olivia de Havilland. Watching that movie I was very impressed with the work the dog was doing. I told my daughter, "that has to have been a good working dog". As the movie was made in 1958 I looked in my Arthur Allen book and found "King" who was an actual champion working Border Collie in the 50s. Was very much a contrast between the two dogs in the movies I watched. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
