Many people think "black and white" when they hear "border collie"
They also have colour variations, blue, chocolate and red.
My Lucy was a red merle. Typical of Borders, always close by. Even though she was my dog, she was a great family dog.
Wally, a friends best friend is a standard black and white. Another faithful dog, not taking his eyes off my friend.
Another friend has a wonderful Border.
Border Collies are so faithful they will guard your settee when you're not seated.
They are adventurous when not guarding your furniture.
And are very social when out and about. When I spotted this trio I thought they were a family but they had only met that day.
Another friends very faithful Blue Merle. He will not leave her out of sight.
What I find with Borders is that they all have nice owners.
