I agree with everything you said, except this. I see a lot of biiiigg and long Westies in the ring nowadays, its a shame. I've seen so many nice, compact dogs be placed behind others because they are "too small" in the judges eye.

I am not worried about the future of the Border Collie. There will always be collie-ish dogs around no doubt. The breed will change and adapt just like any other species over time but completely vanish off the face of the earth? Unlikey. At least not until humans do.

I think the Cardigan and Pembroke will make it, too.

they're very portable and sweet little dogs (if by "sweet" I really mean intelligent and drivey, but very bonded to the family)
