My dream dog.

On another NOTE:

Amanda has a good post today:

here is my response:

My dream dog was a horse named Big Ben.

I dreamed I would be riding in Spruce Meadows, riding a big chestNUT just like Big Ben.

Instead I have a big NUT named Kaleb.

But for real, I always loved shepherds as a kid, my Nanny had one and we were best friends - we slept together, ate milkbones together, and even used eachother as a pillow. Once I even took off when I was 2, I went down the street to go play with a ROUGH COLLIE that lived down the street, my mom found me and I had it in a headlock, hugging and kissing it.

Once I knew the horse dream was over, I wanted a Jack Russell, and got one :) I wanted to do agility though I knew nothing about it, besides seeing a trial at our stable and seeing it on TV.

Then K came around, Pete's dog. LOL

A Border Collie was never in my sights but I have one now and she is everything I never wanted, but at the same time, everything I could possibly ask for.

I am unsure I am a ONE BREED person, I am too A.D.D. to put that much focus into one breed.

I love all my breeds for their attributes and how unique they are.

Though all three are different, they have similarities, which more than the breed itself seem to draw me in:

- JRTS and FCRs are noted for their sense of humour and fun loving spirit, Gyp just happens to have a sense of humour, she is silly and wiggly
- Odd, but they are of british decent (so am I, among other things - a different post topic HAHA)
- I love the smooth lines and athletic look of these breeds
- They are noted for their high activity and energy level, plenty of endurance
- They are breeds that are still bred for working ability, the flat-coat being one of the few dual-purpose dogs in the sporting group, the same dog in the show ring, is the same dog in the field.
- Low maintenance grooming!!!
- And they are cute.

So I guess I didn't really answer your question Amanda. I love all three breeds I have, and I will always have a variation of this combo.
