  And so we have Thunderphobia!
Posted by: BCMixs - 10-24-2007, 09:12 PM - Forum: General Border Collie Discussion - Replies (10)

I wish I could send these thunderboomers and rain out your way Daniela & LJ! Then maybe I wouldn't have a 45 lb panicked border collie trying curl himself into my lap! Tongue

So, I have thunderphobia to deal with too. Greeeeeat! Neither Indie or Woobie will go outside and go potty and I know they really have to go! Gonna be fun trying to sleep tonight with Indie all over me and panting like he's run a marathon. Yay. Supposed to continue throughout the night. Sad

  training tips for our new addition?
Posted by: autumnday - 10-23-2007, 05:03 PM - Forum: General Border Collie Discussion - Replies (6)

Hello,
I am new to this forum kind of thing, so please bear with me....
That being said, here's my (or my dog's) story.....
Our beloved Rotweiller became ill and we had to put her down last month. Sad We were very bonded and it has been hard on our family to be without our good friend. Hense, after about a month, I was searching for a new dog. After scouring websites and a few trips to the shelter, we saw an ad on Craigslist for a cute small black dog. It has been a great fit for our family but we are trying to figure out what kind of dog she is.
I saw an incredible match today and I stopped the woman and asked her what kind of dog she had. Border-Collie Lab mix. Black with the little white patch, longer legs, shorter coat, high energy, skinny stomach area. I still don't know WHY my dog has no tail. Vet said, could have been born with none. My dog is 37 lbs, just about 1 year old. Smart. Bonded to me right away and follows me around. Her ears a little smaller and her eyes have a little Pit. Mostly she is remarkably like the Border-Collie Lab mix I saw today.
Our dog is badly in need of training. She seems very smart and engages with us. What are some great tips on training so she can go for a walk with us, etc.

These are some pictures of, i guess, English Shepherds. But if you look on the second page you'll see a BC in a couple pics as well:

  Problem with the Registration Form
Posted by: Brandon M - 10-23-2007, 12:25 PM - Forum: Off-Topic - Replies (4)

I've gotten a few e-mails from people letting me know there is a problem during registration. I just figured out what it is and will try to fix it today. It's the anti spambot security code that asks "What color is milk". It dissappeared from the registration form when I put the new templates up, yet its still required.

  Richmond passes no chaining ordinance!
Posted by: BCMixs - 10-23-2007, 10:12 AM - Forum: Off-Topic - Replies (5)

Richmond passed an ordinance last night that limits tethering a dog outside to no more than 1 hour per day. I think it's great. There's probably alot of pet owners who don't see a problem with this but I think it's cruel to leave a dog tied outside all day.

If you haven't seen her work, definitely take a look, she's quite talented. And maybe, if she says there's enough time, that could be the Christmas gift you've been looking for! Wink

Good on ya Michelle!

  Forum Changes
Posted by: allbordercollies - 10-22-2007, 02:25 AM - Forum: Off-Topic - Replies (10)

I set up a different forum template, with some new features. There will be another feature starting tomorrow which will let us upload pics into posts rather than using the BBCode image tags. So they will show as thumbnails with links to the full size picture.

There are different color schemes for the forums so you can pick a color scheme in your Profile Options under Preferences where it says Board Style 8) Im going to add some smileys too.

You have GOT to be kidding me!!! That is THEIR problem, THEY did it, THEY didnt make the laws. Why in the hell would you spend that kind of money on a spanish speaking mutt when there's MILLIONS here?!?! You know how many spanish speaking dogs are in MY shelter? This is an area of roughly 200k people and my shelter has nearly SIX hundred dogs and about FOUR hundred cats. Give me a break when those dumbasses have more dogs than people, they'll do something about it. Adopt from home. Im so irked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We do not NEED another countries' dam homeless dogs, we HAVE OUR OWN!!!!!!!!!!!!
