    I love this dog. She thinks she is a lap dog

    and snuggles as close as possible to me as I fall asleep. Then, only when I'm in a deep sleep, does she leave to assume a guard position although sometimes I wake up and she is still snuggled up against me.

    I have three Border Collies,

    they are incredible dogs and truly the only breed I will ever own. I can't imagine any other breed... Once you (successfully) own one you never go back. But they certainly aren't for everyone! I try so hard to educate people... Just because MY dogs are awesome doesn't mean you...

    Taffy The Blue Merle Border Collie

    We've always had Border Collies in my house. Our current one, Taffy, is nearly for years old. He's such a huge sweetie and is nice with absolutely everyone. Furthermore he is exceptionally intelligent and hilarious at times. A great dog - can't imagine our household without him!

    My border collie is not a full blood border collie, but some type of mix. I can tell she is mostly border collie, but doesn't look like a typical one.She is smart and I love her to death, and I can't imagine my life without her waking me at 4am to go outside.
