Hot Weather Tips For Your Border Collie & You

Woof, woof, from me and my human. It's been a while. I am happy to tell you all that I have successfully become a well trained, well adjusted city dog.

My human's new job has him working 10 hours a day, during which time I am kenneled. Trust me though, this isn't a bad thing, in fact it is the safest place for me. When he says, "Time to go.", I willingly go to my kennel on my own.

Spring went by so fast and summer is almost over! We have had record breaking temperatures this year, with 23 days so far being +30° C or higher! Yesterday hit +38° C! Unless you are from a desert area you'd have to agree that is hot!

Speaking of hot weather I have some tips for you and your human.

3 Reasons To Choose A Border Collie

There is no doubt, in my mind, that a Border Collie is by far one of the most exciting and rewarding breeds to choose as a life time companion.

This does not mean a Border Collie is for everyone. They do not come without the price of considerable commitment on the human's part.

That being said, and as the proud companion of an incredible Border Collie, let's take a look at my top reasons to choose this breed.

My Dog Is A Kleptomaniac!

I did not want to believe it. It couldn't be true. Could it? My precious Ali a thief? Not just a thief but a kleptomaniac!

Spoil Your Pet!

Spoil Your Pet Month!

In celebration of spoil your pet month and this week's Wordless Wednesday BlogHop I decided to share some pictures of Ali & friends.

Thanks of course to BlogPaws for hosting this each week! It is a great way to connect with many new people in the community.

Ali & Friends!

Spoiling Ali is easy. It requires only 2 things. An open space and a throw able object. Adding some friends to the mix only makes it better.

Happy Valentine's Day!

How Do You Show Your Pet Love?

Valentine's Day does not have to be exclusive to people. Many people express their love and friendship for their pets on this day as well.

I have seen many great examples of celebrating the day with your pet. From delicious treat recipes to photos and contests.

It's Complicated..

Or so Ali would tell anyone that might try to woo her from me.

Spring Is In The Air!

We have had an unusually mild winter. More spring like weather than winter weather. Knock on wood that it continues. There is a lot to be said for being able to be out in a T-shirt, this time of year, in Canada.

Ali got to enjoy the day down at the river bottom. I was able to get some good pictures of her as well.

While I did not bake her any special treats or get her a present I know she enjoyed this gift. All dogs love getting out but I feel as though it is extra exciting for a Border Collie.

Ali is always a good sport when it comes to posing for pictures as well. Nothing but patience even when I can tell she would rather be off sniffing out rabbits.

Happy Valentine's Day From Ali & I!

We wish you all a great day today! And feel free to share with us how you celebrated the day with your pet(s).

Agility & Your Border Collie

Agility & A Border Collie.

Dog agility is a very popular sport on a competitive level. A quick search on Google or YouTube will give you an idea of just how popular it is.

Another thing you are likely to find is that certain breeds tend to excel at this sport. It is no surprise to me that a Border Collie falls into this category. Their athletic abilities, intelligence and skill at working with their master from a distance makes them perfectly suited for the sport.
