Border collie puppies in my future

While Joss was alive, my husband and I would often say -- he's lovely but no more border collies, they are manic. Ummm. We are picking up our two new border collie puppies on the 23rd. A neighbour of a friend has a litter and we have chosen the two who would not make good sheep dogs. They are lovely. But will need lots and lots of training. However, I do know that once properly trained and being exercised, border collies do make lovely (if slightly manic) pets.

The neighbour also explained where I was going wrong with the mole! I have not been setting the trap properly. As the lawn is once again looking like the Somme, I am hopeful.

There is a beekeeping meeting this afternoon and my fingers are crossed about getting more bees.

They're beautiful, Michelle. Have you decided on names, yet?

Michelle, They are gorgeous! :)))

Nell Dixon said...

Oh, they are so lovely! Fingers crossed for more bees too.

Caroline said...

Oh my! They are gorgeous!!!! Are you going to name either of them after any characters' in your books?

ADORABLE. And border collies do make good pets, you just have to give them lots to do. It is the same with most working breeds or high energy breeds. They are like kids. They get into the most trouble when they are BORED. LOL.

I am glad for you though. :-)

Michelle - they look beautiful! You know I am a big fan of the border collies, I am very jealous.

I am so glad you have taken a little time before getting new puppies. How exciting!

Do you have names?
