You've never seen a smooth BC? Google, girl! I think they're gorgeous dogs, very sleek. That isn't a good picture of Rose, but she has the BC eye and she definitely moves like one. A little heavier bone than most BCs have, but anything goes in the "ranch lines" that I imagine she came from.

A lot of people think the smoothies (esp. prick eared ones) are mixed with ACD. Flop-eared ones are suspected to be mixed with lab. Honestly, a lot of the "BC mixes" I see in rescue are probably purebred BC, just with smooth coats.

Yup.. so many BCs now have the overly full and thick coats that people can't even recognize a beautiful pure smooth coated BC anymore. Sad.

I petted a show BC at the trials yesterday, her hair (yes a bitch, they typically have less coat!) was almost dragging on the ground.

I gotta say I love Dakota's coat. He's just what I think a rough should be - long, thick (but not poufy, more slick and glossy) but not a foofoo coat. I brush him once a week and his coat stays in great shape, mat-free.

Mm, I wouldn't call her outgoing by any means. Friendly, yes. Her foster mom said she was shy in new situations, terrified when she came to the foster home and very slowly came out of her shell. She warmed up to us after just a short period of time. Definitely friendly, just needs some confidence.
