    Aoow, cute!

    I have always wanted a Collie. Was definite that my first dog was going to be a Collie.... and then my OH and I went to the local dog rescue and fell in love with couple of Lurchers instead .

    Still want a Collie as well though

      I love collies too!!.We had one when I was living at home, she was a cross with a spaniel. Lovely dog, so loving and gentle.Sadly we had to have her put to sleep when she was 13 because of a brain tumor . I still miss her to this day and thats over 20 years!. I now have another collie cross, she is crossed with an Australian Kelpie and again she is very loving and obdient. We got her from a farm in Brecon. Her name is Ruby, but incidentally if we had got a boy collie he was going to be called Bryn.

      My dog is also my baby and I love her to bits

      Your dog is beautiful

      Her as a puppy

      I think collies are great dogs.
      I've got a Collie x and i love him to bits. He is so clever but a bit more chilled out than the pure bred Border Collies. I love his eyes the best.

      Here's him ( Fidel ) as a 6 month old pup



      And now as a 3 year old





      We got him from a dog rescue and he is brill!!

      I rehomed my first border collie almost two months ago now. He's a real cuddle monster and has a naughty streak but is generally well behaved.

      Photos I took when we had snow in December:

      Big Border Collie fan here! Have had two who have both sadly left us now but they are a great breed if you can handle their intelligence and exercise needs.

      Haven't got a photo of our first collie on the computer unfortunately but here's Bryn who left a big whole in our hearts about 18 months ago

      Beautiful dogs, but why is there a green dildo on the last link behind the collie.

      Not appropriate and rather worrying if I may say so.

      I love collies and all the herding breeds! That's my little Sheltie boy in my sig.

      I think I'm going to end up having a BC one of these days- I adore their intelligence and lust for life. Any dog I own would be trained for agility and whatever else it enjoys doing.

      I've still had no explanation as to why there is a conspicuously placed DILDO behind an innocent looking collie.

      It is disturbing.

      Thankfully he doesn't mind the rain, only bodies of water. Collies definitely have a lot of character eh?

      I tried to find somewhere in Coventry that did agility classes but didn't turn up anything suitable. Would love to be able to get Harley into agility.

      I have a Border Collie X labrador and he loves water! Can't get him out of it! Like we walk past a stream and he jumps in and waits there for us to throw him a stick or ball! He loves fetching in the water! Or chasing birds in the sea!

      I LOVE collies! They are just adorable, so intelligent (my dog managed to pull a pot full of sauce off the hob and lick clean the whole floor )very thankful and great companions!
      Always wanted a dog, got a border collie and labrador X (the mother looked like a golden retriever but they said she's a lab) after nagging my parents for 2 years, free to a good home! Named him Oscar. He was the last in the litter but so cute, I dont know why. Got him home and he had worms poor thing. Went to agility classes with him to calm him down. He used to be soo hyper! After only 3 years (hard work training him!!) he is a little calmer I just love his active personality!
      He also get on so well with my Westie, Hamish. Can't understand how I lived without dogs before!
