    Default Darby Met His Match

    I had a friend drop by last night, she just got a border collie.
    He is 11 weeks old, he is HUGE.

    I tried my best to snap a few shots of him and Darby playing, at first Darby was scared of him but then he got pretty comfy.

    We let them out in the backyard and I could of strangled her when they came in he was filthy but not her pup cause he just isn't as low to the ground as Darby.

    It was fun. Sir Dudley wanted nothing to do with him.

    His name is River

    They looked like they had a blast! I just adore Border Collies. My grandpop used to breed, show and obedience compete with them. They are soooo intelliget. He even trained his dogs to herd his golf balls as he played the course

    oh bless - looks like Darby had a wonderful time

    That's the problem with these low slung sporty models - they do get rather muddy

    River is gorgeous, I hope they will continue to be friends even when he's older...

    Dudley, I don't blame you sweetheart for keeping out the way...leave these youngsters to the rough stuff



    Leah, so sorry to hear about your friend's puppy, that's tragic

    What a great experience for Darby...but I don't blame Dudley!! River is precious and looks like they had a great time getting dirty together.

    Was River herding Darby at all? 15 years ago I took my dogs to visit a friend who had a puppy Australian Shepherd and that Shepherd, kept herding my two dogs under my chair. She wasn't happy until they were in the place she thought they belonged. With me!

    I can just see the racing around the house from those photos! Border collies are very pretty pups and so active too.

    Cute shots!

    Linda,

    What beautiful pics, looks like fun was had by all and why worry about the dirt as long as they had a good time

    Maxx's best friend is a Border Collie and they run around like loonies together too, it's great fun to watch them

    A friend of mine has two Border Collies and everytime we're over there, they herd Katie. It's so funny to watch! She'll finally look up at me like "Help Mom!".
