We're going to look at puppies tomorrow. *gulp* It's a breed I've always been afraid of, due to their high energy and intensity. But, not a day goes by here where we're not moving sheep, cows, geese, goats, etc. and it seems my wife and I are always saying "Don't they make dogs that do this?" I think we will be the right kind of home and farm for a border collie. It's also cool because my wife and her family are from the "Border" between England and Scotland, so maybe that's our subconcious draw to them? I've only ever had retired racing Greyhounds, so you get to avoid the whole puppy stage. My wife has been through it, though, and assures me we'll survive. Advice? Wish us luck?
