    What a happy trade!

    One of the ladies at work had 8 border collie pups she was selling. I traded her my first ever "Trip around the world" for Sadie. She is 8 weeks old. My granddaughter is in love! (So are the rest of us)

    Fabulous trade. Puppy & DGD are adorable! Quilt was very pretty too but tough to be cuter than those two

    Great trade! We had a border collie for 16 years, they are wonderful dogs. She grew up with our kids. They are smart, be prepared to keep one step ahead of them!

    What a cutie pie! I love the tri-color markings. Make sure you give her a job to do. Border collies are super smart and need a job to keep their mind occupied and use up all that energy that has been bred into them for herding sheep, they have been bred to think for themselves. If you don't supply a challenging activity for them, they can become destructive. Basic obedience first. Get her enrolled in a class as soon as you can, the are never too young to start. Then you can look into Agility. Agility is a great thing to get involved with. It is good exercise for you and your dog, gives your dog confidence and is a ton of fun and border collies excel at it. Kids can do it too so make sure you involve your DGD.

    Great trade! Be prepared to be herded every chance she gets!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    The lady I work with has a border collie...every time Wheel of Fortune comes on, Mollie will run around the table as the wheel spins. She is nuts about NASCAR too -- they have to make sure she is outside if they want to watch either of those shows.

    We had a Border collie named "Bandit." He was the best dog my boys could have had. He was loving and playful till the end. Love those eyes..... Bandit stole our hearts.

    Perfect trade! Border Collies are amazingly intelligent, and as others have said, you have to train them and always be one step ahead.

    Love the colors you chose for your quilt! I hear Border Collies and Poodles are the smartest breeds of dog. Good luck with the puppy! Very cute!!!
