My boyfriend Max has a Border Collie called Jess - after Jess, the Border Collie who is the Dog's romantic interest in Footrot Flats, a very Kiwi comic ***** by Murry Ball. Unfortunatly because Max went away to uni he had to leave Jess with his parents. Max is adamant that we will get a Border Collie puppy as soon as we are able - Jess will probably be too old to handle a move by the time we are settled. We are already discussing names and we would like to pick another name from Footrot Flats - but given the nature of kiwi humour most of the names aren't that original!
I have never had a dog and given the energetic and active nature of Border Collies I think Im going to have my hands full! But Im looking forward to it! :)
