  • I don't. I'm not even really a dog person. But I have always wanted a collie. Or a Collie-lite, a Shetland Sheepdog. I guess it's part of my obsession with all things Scottish.

    I think my Feline-Americans would had a goat if I got them a dog. And I don't have a fence...I feel very strongly about no fence, no dog, especially where I live.

    I've seen pictures of Blue Merles. I bet s/he's gorgeous.

  • I love collies and rough collies. That said, Lassie aside, they are close onto the dumbest canines there are! Be sure not to leave anything around that can hurt them or would be bad for them to eat. Even things other dogs will instinctively ignore, they WILL try to eat. (Most dogs will never even notice mushrooms/toadstools in the grass, collies will eat them every time, and it has killed some of them.)

  • Collies are actually very intelligent. My husband and I had 3 collies when we first were married 24 years ago and now we have a Shetland sheepdog-sheltie and her name is Gracious Girl Sadie Jen Len she isnow 9 years old and is such a baby I love her so much. It is amazing how much Sadie is such a good girl she loves being outside with me as I do my yard work...she can be a little sneaky when she gets nosey about something going on around her and then she tries to sneak off lol...I have to keep a eye on her....I know her every move.....


    I don't mind the hair.....if you know how to keep up with it.
