    So worth it. I hope you enjoy that puppy as I'm sure the recipient of that beautiful quilt will enjoy it.

    That was a super good trade. Wonder which of you thinks that she made out the best? :-)

    Awe, so sweet. Beautiful DGD and puppy, and of course, the quilt is pretty too! My mama had a border collie mix named Sadie before we moved here, and she was the sweetest dog ever!

    First off, the quilt is beautiful and the puppy is adorable. What a great and happy deal for both of you.

    I sure which I could find a good deal like that. I want a Newfoundland and my hubby wants a Malamute. And either one is so very expensive and hard to find where I live. We have not had a puppy around for a long time and both of us are ready.

    My folks had Border Collies and they are indeed a very smart breed. I think you can teach them anything. I agree that they are never too young to start training, however they can be too young to take to classes. Not physically or even mentally, but the problem is getting enough vaccinations in them to keep them protected. I lost my show quality, very expensive and very very special German Shepherd puppy awhile back to Parvo . He was up to date on his shots and still got it. He was four months old and we were so bonded that it broke my heart. I took him to a class at a park to start socializing and obedience training. What a bad mistake. You just never know what viruses might be lurking. Sorry to be a downer, just a warning to be careful.

    What a great trade. I purchased a border collie three years ago. She is the best dog ever. I cannot imagine her not being in my life. I am glad I got her after I retired, as she needs a lot of attention and a job to do. Hers is to make sure there is a ball at my feet constantly. It does not matter whether I am cooking, ironing or just watching tv.

    Someone told me to put a bell at the back door, show it to her and then take her out to go potty. I put a wind home low enough for her to ring it. I took her over to it, rang the bell, opened the door and took her out. Then we went back in and did it again. After coming in the second time, she went over and rang it on her own and I opened the door. She learned that was all it took to let her out. Potty training complete!

    Have fun with your dog. You will love it.
