I'm not so sure you have heard my kids when I have been on the phone with you. They are monsters, always want to say hello, think everytime the phone rings it is grandma. Pains in my butt.

Oh, you'll love this! Have you ever checked out Project Gutenberg? (http://www.gutenberg.org/) A wonderful, huge collection of full texts of copyright expired works - all free!

Rofl! I get the "constant and recurring snouts" poking me, then the big chins laying on my leg, getting progressively heavier the longer I ignore them . . .

My dad was talking about this, thanks for the link.
Yes everyone, I consider the book's Lassie to be the real Lassie, the original.

My Azlan is a sable, I've always loved that colour. People always ask me if I got a collie because I liked Lassie as a child, but I fell in love with the breed at an animal shelter! The original puppy I was going to import was a blue merle, very pretty I really do love that colour, but the breeder was less than good.
They are such great (but weird!) dogs. Azlan's tail can move as if it has no bones in it, I could literally tie it in a knot if I wanted to!

Lol, I always think it is funny that the "lassies" in the movies were in fact "laddies" and were actually quite large examples of the breed so that the children would still look relative in size as they got a little bigger during the course of filming.

"Laddies" have better coats overall, which was the reason for using it on film. Or so I have read.

You know it's odd. I love the merle color in Aussies and in Catahoulas, but not so much in Shelties and Collies. I don't know why. But I love the sable in Collies. Daniel's collie, Chase was a BEAUTIFUL example of a sable but was worthless as a stud because he was truly a runt (his top weight through his whole life was 35 pounds and was 24 when he had to be put down) and only had 8 teeth his entire life as well. He had some sort of liver and kidney disease and by the time he was 5 was on a doggie vegetarian diet because he couldn't process animal protiens. I'll try to find a good picture to post of Chase sometime.

Actually, it's because females are camera shy or something along those lines.

It is because the males have far more coat than females, and also males do not "blow coat" when they go into heat and end up looking like plucked chickens.
