Lucky is a 4 year old Collie mix. She was dumped out of a van at a swap meet. I took her home with me to her forever home. She always greets me with this wonderful smile and all her unconditional love. The guy who dumped her off gave a precious gift to me.
Gee Gee is 5 years old and a Great Pyrenees and Collie cross. Gee Gee's mother was found in the country with 3 puppies in the middle of winter. When we brought Gee Gee home, she was terrified of people, very withdrawn and shy. Now she is the belle of the ball!
We have a group of people come to our acreage in the summer to have play dates, practicing obedience and agility and Gee Gee is such a good girl in every way. We have a lot of fun with her.

Cody is a 2 year old Collie mix. We got Cody 1 year ago from a rescue in New Jersey. He picked us out as we checked out all the dogs. He kept running back and forth in the cage to get to us each time we would round the bend again to check them all out. It was "love at first sight" for both of us. He loves playing with his dog friends where we live, going to restaurants (ones where they allow dogs), and he loves to play with his Kong when stuffed with peanut butter. Cody is training to be a service dog for me, as I am wheelchair bound and would like to be able to take him everywhere that I go.

Our one year old Lab, Border Collie mix (Borador) dog Lou loves to roam in the woods behind our house. He will find water to jump in on every one of our walks.
Tux is a 10 month old border collie/lab mix, who we got 1 month ago. He likes to run around the yard - jumping for his bone. We had a lab mix for 15 years and lost him about 9 months ago. We decided our family was ready for our next puppy! All 4 kids are loving Tux, our new addition:)

I had to have Flenters, my dog of 13 years and 7 months, put to sleep on Friday 25 November. Needless to say, I was heartbroken. Initially I thought I would wait until I have made peace with his passing, but I just missed having a dog of my own too much.
Roxy is an 11 month old Lab/Border Collie Mix. She was a Christmas present for my husband last year. He was out of town for three weeks, and when he came home I had the house decorated for Christmas.
