I was scared the rancher would shoot him. Hes with a great family with three little boys. They love him to death.
Thank you on the compliment on Jes. I groom her myself so it means allot!

He is gorgeous though, I love the tri-headed whites.

I love your aussie, I have a tri male aussie as well. I always loved the red merles, they are stunning! And Jessabel is lovely, impecably groomed! (the dog groomer in me always notices)

Beautiful dogs, everyone. It seems like working dogs are the most common. We raise and train border collies for cattle work. Here are just a few of our current dogs.

Here is our main man, Bill

Here is one of his pups, Radar.

Here are some of our older pictures.

In this one, I got bored one winter and trained a sled dog team.

And here is how we used to train our puppies. We kept the Angora goats so that the puppies could learn to bite without hurting the herd.

And last but not least, "Get him Duke!" LOL.

And a couple of videos from this summer. I was playing around with my new camcorder.

I love Border Collies. Your videos are amazing.

Here are some pics of my dogs. we have 5.

Blanco (chow lab mix) Blanco is a rescue who was severely asbused. It took my husband 6 months to even be able to touch him. He is our outside dog. Great around the horses but loves the taste of chicken a lottle to much so we have to put him up when the chickens come out.

Sugar (yellow lab) is another one we took in. She had severe separation anxiety when we first got her. She is a mess. She likes to take dips in the horse trough. It is hilarious. She is always wet and muddy in the summer.

Tucker (black mutt) is our youngest. My sil calls me one day and says hey they have puppies up here for free. We had just moved had plenty of room and I said why not. She brings home this weak (he had been pulled off his mama and had no milk all day) pup with no teeth and eyes barely open. I bottle fed that dog for 2 weeks until he learned to lap. He is super smart, but really flighty.

Sam (Shepherd) is our oldest female. She will be 9 next montha nd is starting to have some real arthritis issues. We may not have her much longer. We have tried supplements and antiinflamatories and nothing seems to work.

Tex (boxer mix) is our resident lazy dog he is asleep on the couch as I type. Not sure what makes him think that is ok since he just started doing it. He is our oldest dog. he was pet of the week on our local channel when we lived in Arizona. I waited for 3 hours to adopt that dog. i got there at 8 when the shelter opened to tell them who I was there for even though the kennel didn't open till 11. He loves to play ball, and talk back. he can also sing.

I would have more dogs if my husband would let me.

Wow! That is so cool how y'all's dogs can work livestock. My guys are security and companions. I love the Angora's! I plan on getting a doe to cross my Boer with !!

Well, first, here is Marcus. He's my best friend, we go hiking together all the time. He and I race through the neighbor's hay field, me on the four wheeler. He sometimes works the goats. I L-O-V-E THIS DOG, I trained him myself. He knows how to 'whoa', 'walk, trot, and canter'. He does Automatic lead changes, and is such a sweetie!

Now, here's Marcus's twin brother, Max. He's ******ed, with ADHD. And has a bladder control problem. We just keep him around for Marcus. I personally don't like this dumb dog. He peed on me while I was laying in bed evil:. Yes, I was mad.

Annnddd, Misha.

She's a yorkie, but rocks! She's the greatest.

And here's my city dog, Emmy and Frank.

Here are my ranch doggies

Tori and Jag, my frenchies are the best ranch doggies. Note Jag fell asleep on Tori's back while she guarded the property from vicious bunnies.
