Lovely dog i also had a border collie when i was a kid ..Its so sad when they go though i am on my fourth golden retriever at the moment and he will probably be my last dog unless i get a toy variety..
Nice to have the memory, cinnammon! I've never had a dog since I was a child on a farm, where we had lots of dogs over the years, including border collies. We had one called Major. They are great pets.
