Brothers and Sisters V

Sister Ally

"Ally is 35 lbs and measures 22 inches (from floor to shoulder) – she is long and lean. Her fur is very wavy and her tail fur is long and fluffy. She has very uppity ears. We thought we had smart border collies before – but Ally is unbelievable. Ally has quite a personality – she likes to squeak when she yawns and rolls over on to her back when she is sleeping.

She isn’t the least bit graceful for a girl – she just flops down like a sack of potatoes when she’s tired and runs and down the stairs like an elephant. Her eyes have so much expression because the white shows quite a bit.

We absolutely love, love, love her! We feel so blessed to have adopted such a wonderful puppy. Thank you so much!"

Brothers and Sisters IV


"At nine months, Gin is 35.2 lbs and she's level with a side table we have that's 20" high. She's the PERFECT border collie for us, and we are so, so, soooo grateful that we were allowed to adopt her. You know the old saying: "Dogs aren't our whole lives, but they make our lives whole"? Well our life is incredibly enjoyable and full with this comical little border collie in it. Thank you TDBCR :-)"

Brothers and Sisters III

Brother Paddy:

Paddy loves to swim and splash in puddles. He enjoys pinecones and leaves as much as his kongs and balls. He currently weighs 34lbs and measures 20" at the shoulder.

He has not yet acquired a taste for panties.

"Hoot Man Bad Dog"

22" at the shoulder and a whopping 43lbs of bones and hair!

"Hoot's new name is Hootman Bad Dog. He's been super naughty & pesty this week. He makes up for it (mostly) by also being uber-snuggly. He just smashes his ill-mannered little head into my chest and leans in for a good scratch. He's actually been a great dog- drives us nuts a lot, but we haven't had a puppy around in 8 years. We're spoiled on our nice older dogs :)

Hoot has recently started showing intense interest in stock. He definitely has great feel for sheep- I think he's going to be a quiet, powerful stock dog. I'm still planning on sending Hoot out for training this winter. Then hopefully we'll hit the trial field next year."

For the next several days I will be posting updates on the all the Peanuts Gang!

Here's Sagan at 9 months. He's just under 20" at the shoulder and weighs about 35 lbs. Phil says Sagan prefers the motorhome to sheep :) He's a dog who likes his creature comforts.

Christ on a cross!

Oops, nope - my bad. It's Dexter on a basketball.

Even in mid air he is awkward.

His favourite thing to do is to intercept the ball when I am kicking it for someone else, snatch it out of the air, and take off it with it.

The results are sometimes a little goofy.

Dexter started 2X2 poles today

No bending, no more than two poles, just driving straight through for the tuggy at the other side.

He's very proud of himself!
