Are Welshies supposed to cross?

There's nothing specific in the standard, but they should have a long efficient stride that covers ground well, so they should track up.

"The Welsh Springer moves with a smooth, powerful, ground covering action that displays drive from the rear. Viewed from the side, he exhibits a strong forward stride with a reach that does not waste energy. "

I was going to say that because of their wide standard, Border Collies can be sable - really pretty colouring on them I might add, and blah blah blah about giving people the benefit of the doubt...
But then I went and found a few pics of Trey on here (not creepy I swear), and yeah....Border Collie? I don't see any reason whatsoever why people would say that!

I put other catahoula have a variety of types and he is very easily recognisable but he really isn't the type I prefer.

I don't get it either. The only thing I can come up with is they aren't super round like a lot of shelties. The other option is they're not monster over-sized, but that doesn't really make sense either since a BC is typically going to be larger than a sheltie anyway?? I really have no clue, but it's so frequent there must be something to it.

"Baby collie" happens too since they are "really small" for shelties. That one at least sort of makes sense.

Steve is 100% Sporter Collie typey. Narrow, fine-boned, very angulated behind, very high (read: crazy), and merle





Bean isn't so sporter-collie-ish, which makes sense as his dad is from conformation stock (but was never shown in conformation).

But I think it's pretty clear he's a Border Collie.

I know a sable show line border collie (awesome dog!) and he looks nothing like a sheltie.

I get asked if Summer and Mia are shelties though so maybe people just don't know what shelties are. I know someone with an oversized bi-black. I'm sure she gets BC all the time!

My favorite with Summer is still 'toy collie'. Well.... after chinchilla.

My Dogo is very typey, for grilled cheese and tomato soup. All the people tell me so.
