That kills me!
We get it all the time at shows when I bring Cobain out for our "Meet n Greet" section.
I try to deter the average person/family from Border Collies but I always get things like "Oh it's okay I used to have one a long time ago" or "He's so calm!" Yeah that's because he just spent the last half hour running his ass off, and on an average day I dedicate like 3 hours just to exercise and training.

I just found out Auggie's mom died last month.
I don't know why she didn't tell me sooner.

I had a husband and wife approach me at our last show asking about Aussies, how much they cost (always a bad sign), and how hard they are to live with. I was polite but hammered home that 90% of the time they're not a breed for beginners. I'm pretty sure I was able to dissuade them, but they seemed pretty smitten with Cohen.

Mia is having a good day. We went to the park from 10-11:30 and she ran off leash the whole time without any troubles and despite it being in the mid 80s. We had a blast.

I've actually not had a single person say they want a dog just like Abrams. I feel kind of hurt now.

Guess it's a good thing he's so physical and enthusiastic about everything. Dissuades the faint of heart.

A few days ago my cousin (whom is just finishing up her education to be a vet tech) posted "I'm never owning another animal again. All they do is break your heart "


My mom just texted me with context.
My grandfather's elderly dog took off last week. This dog is 14+ years old, and has lived on this property his entire life without ever running. He's presumed dead.

I used to hate this dog. My 2 dog bite scars are because of him. But he taught me a lot. :'(

So I told Josh. As I said that I mentioned the "I will never own another pet" and said, "I will probably say that when..." and pointed at Cobain. The freakin' choked up.
Gah emotions and sadness :'(

RIP(?) Buck

My friend's dog got attacked yesterday at a park. Not even a dog park, a people park. Not a "dog fight" attack, but 3 dogs attacked to kill. 3 hours of surgery, seven drains, skin torn from the muscle, an amputated ear, and while he looked stable this morning apparently, he crashed this afternoon and got moved to the e-vet. He needs some serious good vibes for the next 12 hours or so.

I can't even imagine. My dogs may never leave the house again, at least until I find kevlar suits for them to wear.

So freaking scary, and it makes me hate people so **** much. You can't tell me dogs like that had never given ANY warning that they maybe had issues.

Earlier in the week we had someone rush in with their two year old Maltese. It was DOA. A Labrador had come over to say hello while at the park and bounced on it. Just bounced. No malicious intent at all. And it died almost immediately. Internal injuries.

So sad. The owner was in hysterics.

Best of luck to your friends dog.
