Default Have you met my Border Collie?

My Border Collie:


Conversation of the day:
Agility Judge: That 24" Border Collie's run was really nice
Steward: That's no Border Collie that's Mira the FLAT-COAT!



I guess one black blur can look much like another haha

Judge was very nice though and flagged me down on the way to my car afterward to tell me what a really nice Flat-Coat Mira is and that she has a bright future ahead

Nice of the judge to give you a compliment though!

Haha! When I was looking at the picture I thought the thread title was like a trick question, XD

Flat-Coats are nice, from what I've read, but I've yet to meet one in "real life".

LOL, that's too funny. Super nice of him to compliment her (and you!) like that though!

You'd think the judge would have noticed an absence of white hair ... not too often to see a solid black BC!

I think she was seeing more how she runs agility lol -- Mira beat all the BCs...closest dog any height was a 20" BC who was 9 second slower

Well, you know that if a dog aces agility it HAS to be a BC

Since there are many that have only one white area of very small patch of white, I see the mistake possible. Really if one does not know your dog.

Yeah the conversation was relayed to me, I didn't hear it directly, I can't say.

Exactly.

Seriously, though, I could see how she would make that mistake. Flat coats aren't very common around here (I've never met one), and especially since she ran so well (retrievers are usually not as fast as herders), it's probably a better assumption that she would be a BC mix.

And congrats on the awesome runs!
