Are you sure she isn't one of those really cool teacup BCs?

Okay, just kidding. People are stupid.

People think Marlowe's a puppy all the time. He's just small, but very much an adult. I've had him for almost two years and he hasn't gotten any bigger, so I don't think he's gonna! He's from working lines, as long as he's got working ability, he doesn't have to be gigantic.

I've also had people tell me Conrad must be a puppy (um, he's 7) because he has big feet. Where do people get these ideas from!?! Some dogs just have big paddle feet, just like some people do. They don't make size 14 shoes for no reason!

I love the people that argue with you- it's fun. It's one thing to ask, but another to argue.

Well, your mini border collie should come hang out with my mini shelte.

I hate people at dog parks, beaches or stores who will argue with you. I took Lily to the dog beach and this guy started talking to me asking me if she was a lab so I said No she is a lab rottie mix. The guy then argues with me for twenty minutes and then proceeds to tell me that I 'have no clue what I am talking about and obviously dont know my dog breeds' Uh ok guy. I dont know my dog breeds? dude I knew my dog since she was first born. Shes part rot. 'No no no! I have been breeding Labs all my life! She is pure' OK whatever you say but I dont know my dog breeds? and you do? Ok... So I can definately feel your pain.

I think it's kinda fun when they argue with me about things other than her size. I had someone once argue that Dakota was "one o' them seein' eye dawgs" because he was wearing a leather harness. They almost argued with me about my vision!!!! Can you imagine? "Are you sure you aren't blind?"

The only person I've ever argued with was a guy who said his (purebred looking) border collie was a purebred springer spaniel. No friggin way was a dog with a straight, slick coat and PRICK EARS a springer spaniel. It just doesn't happen.

I've been having pretty much the same coversation with people lately regarding Dance as well. It's extremely annoying. Apparently Tollers are supposed to be 60+lbs and I have a "miniature". Stupid people.

You'd think they'd learn to listen to the owner of the dog, who probably knows far more about the breed(s) we own than they'll ever know.

I can't seem to convince people that Sawyer is an Aussie, because he's not horse sized and doesn't have blue eyes or a ton of copper. Apparently all Aussies are 70 pounds, much broader and they have to have orange on them or they're not really Aussies. I'd love see what people would call a black bi Aussie!

I'm also told a lot that I'm mean for docking my Border Collie. Sorry, as far as I know, my Aussie was born this way.

I know what you mean though about these monster overweight BC's. It's gross.
