The young couple has a beautiful Border Collie pup called Sabre, soon to be sixth months old.
He greeted me outside the house, pulling hard to get to me. Most of the time I was with them he was flying all over the place or barking at the young man in particular. He barked for him to throw a toy.

Laser lights, usually cat toys, are DANGEROUS to dogs! They should come with a written warning on the packaging. I went to a gorgeous little Cavapoo yesterday, called out because the people couldn’t understand her odd behaviour. They showed me this video. The six-month-old puppy runs about frantically looking for something, highly Read more…
Border Collie Holly has several of the more difficult traits in Collies without work that I go to, bearing in mind that I only go to dogs that need help in some way. This won’t represent the majority of their breed out there. A Border Collie, being a Border Collie, Read more…
