Pamela Gallup, NM 10/25/2011 6:28:51 PM I am a Boarder Collie owner and i LOVE the breed. My husband is a rancher and the breed was his dream dog. We aquired one as a pup and i knew nothing about Boarder Collies. I never had a dog before myself and he did'nt fill me in about this breed.OMG what did i get myself into? I went to the book store and bought a book on them.Good thing i am very active outdoors and am a runner, i started taking Lexie for runs every morning with me and when we'd get home i'd work with training her. We live in the city and have the room for her so i city trained her and my husband ranched trained her. She is so smart and sweet, every in town knows Lexie cuz she is very socialized. One of her favorite activities is soccer, i take her to the multi- purpose field at the high schooland i run the outer side of the lined field and kick the soccer ball out to the field, she chases it ,cuts it off and rolls it to wherever im at on the field, she never tires of playing soccer. She brings us so much joy . I'll never own another Breed of Dog . I find it very theraputic working with her.
