This is another reason why I am not getting much time on site at the moment – this is Willow – our new pup – we have had her for a few days – she is ten weeks old and wonderful. The whole house has come alive with her antics. She is as bright as a button (which is to be expected as her dad was trained in mountain rescue in Wales – both her father and mother are the most gentle, well behaved border collies you could ever wish to meet, so we are looking forward to giving Willow a happy and fulfilled life for many years to come. Steven is absolutely besotted with her (though luckily he is much more strict with her than me!!) It is 18 years since our last two border collies died within 6 months of each other and I was so broken hearted, it has taken a long time for me to find the courage to have another but, do you know what, I am so glad I finally succumbed – she will do us nothing but good.

This is not the best of pics but have you tried capturing a border collie pup full of energy – I had to wait until she was totally “zonked out” LOL – bless her little white paws.

    I love Border Collies! I had one when I was a young girl. I’m sure your life will be filled with much love and laughter. My little dog fill our life with so much. In one way or another she always makes us laugh!

  • Hi Maria – I know how you feel about borders – they do get into your blood don’t they, so full of energy and intelligence and, as you say, so funny. Sue
