Otherwise, we now rescue French border collies instead of British or Irish ones.
You could always branch out and start "saving fallen women". :lol:

Cue the old gag.
I did Reef but as they say (almost) in Animal Farm - 5 dogs good one fallen woman enough!

What's wrong with Zeus, Bacchus or Frigg ? :D
Nah...the first is too full of himself, then you propose an alky or a horned Viking type-ess :roll: Cheers!
Picky :D
Absolutely! :D
The fact that there's a highway to hell but only a stairway to heaven speaks volumes for anticipated numbers, as well as failing to conform to current mobility standards 8-)
Be alert.....your country needs lerts!

Loup-garou - admiration for your hobby, but it probably brings you a lotof pleasure too.
We had 2 border collies while in France. The male was a handful - they can be quite neurotic. He chased cars, tractors etc and although we'd tried to train him out of it in the end he chased one too many. He was brilliant at herding sheep.
The female was much loved, but also rather neurotic, about food mainly. She almost completely lost her hearing at age 14, and developed dementia after that. She would have hated it here in urban England. but I still miss her a lot.
I watch videos of border collie rescues in the UK.
