Keira does a lot too. Only around dogs though. Or cats. Or other animals. Never for noises or humans. I think with her and animals it's a minor insecurity thing (with other dogs) and excitement/prey drive (cats and other animals). She's always raised her hackles easily, even as a young puppy. It's never gone away. The general public automatically assumes it's aggression, but it's definitely not. Oh, and she raises them when she's cold too.

I think I've seen Quinn put her hackles up maybe once or twice!

Dally does it more often. Not really when she's playing, but if she sees something suspicious or she's out in the field and smelling coyotes from the night before she'll put her hackles up. She reminds me of a dinosaur or something because she has such a thick, bristly coat to begin with and it looks like big spikes when she gets all hackley - her hair stands up over her shoulders, then flattens, then along her spine, then flattens, then at the base of her tail.

I've only seen Charlie do it twice, but I attest that to everyone else having short/soft hair. The first was warning the OtherCollie in the stove door that they were not welcomed, and then when she heard something in the hallway and body blocked me.

I think it may be a bit of a puppy thing, because they're so often overaroused. All of the puppies in Gracie's class did it when they were playing.

Also, Grace's is freaking awesome -- it's a big mohawk ('cause now she has her big girl hair) all the way down her back. It's hilarious and I love it.

Virgo always went all hackly whenever she was excited over something. If Sawyer ever does, I can't tell because of his coat length and the way it parts down his back.

Morgan hackles very, very, VERY easily. Same as Didgie, it's the full deal - neck to tail. And anything can trigger it.

"Did you near that noise?" *hackle*
"There's somebody outside!" *hackle*
"Are we going for a walk?!" *hackledance*
"I'M GOING TO RUN NOW." *hacklezoom*
"Nothing is happening, so I'm going to pretend I heard a knock at the door." *hackle*

I've never seen the paps do it but I think it's because of their coat. It's so long and silky and Mia's parts down the back.

Nikki did it all the time only she was defective so it would just poof up on her butt. Yes, you are such a scary dog with your big huge poofy butt!
