Border Collie? No thanks! I am sure they are great dogs, but I have even better....Yorkies, Kuvasz, German Shepherd, Siberian Husky, and a Schnauzer!

I see you have tried every breed. Have you found one that you like best ? You know I always wanted a Yorkie but Mama would not let me have one :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Vibrant, brilliant, beautiful, mischievous....that's border collies!! Great video!
That birthing scene brought back alot of fond memories. I have assisted my female in a few births it's so exciting!!!:cool:
Come on Belle you need to add one to your menagerie!;)

Texasbelle 08-16-2007 11:22 AM

My favorite breed hands down is the Yorkie. I just love them which is why we have four. Next favorite would be the Kuvasz! We've had a Border Collie and she drove us nuts constantly herding the horses. She never gave the horses a minutes rest.

Pokie, if another dog shows up at this house Mr. Belle will likely take out the fool who dared to bring it here and I will help him. We have more than enough.

Pug Bowling

Do all pug's eyeballs look as if they are looking in opposite directions??:confused: :duck:

My sister just bought a couple of new shi tzu puppies for my niece and nephew. Those kids don't let their puppies go. :laugh:

Texasbelle 08-16-2007 09:08 PM

I wonder what kind of dog you get if you breed a Shi tzu and a Bull dog?:D

I think thats a Boston Terrier youre thinking of there, Pokie.

We just lost our 10 year old Border Collie mix, "Allie" was her name. She was my wife's dog, the wife havin rescued her from the dog catcher as a puppie. Are they like our children? Hell yes, they are indeed. My wife is beside herself with grief, takin it very hard. I swear to God, that was the smartest dog I'd ever seen in my life, hands down. Such a loss to our family, it just makes me sick to think about it. We're a family of animal lovers, like many of you. Seven cats, two dogs and a beta fish, each a much loved member of our clan.

Its fair to say that I'm obsessed with death now...have been since my father died seven years past. I've studied just about every facet of it, read about all of the various ways that it impacts the individual, society, business, viewed images of the dead from the very recent to the not-so-recent, some of them extremely disturbin. It was not until late last night, as I sat at my desk viewing thumbnails of "death masks", that I realized why I've been doin this all these years. I've been trying to de-sensitize myself to it! Over-exposin myself to it was nothin more than a defense mechanism of sorts, an attempt to "up-armor" my soul. Just a copin strategy of which I'd been previously completely unaware. A rare moment of insight into my own psyche.

So far, its been a limited success.

Pocahontas 08-16-2007 11:20 PM

My heart goes out to you Al....so sorry about Allie! Our family feels the same way about our dogs! Oh it is so hard...especially after it first happens and you keep looking for them around every corner!!:(

Hey Al you are wise to look at things in a real way. I hope you find what it is you are looking for. Tell you wife I will have a litter of Border Collies next spring from my female. You are so right they are soooooooooo smart and until you own one you could never now. :peace:
