    If anyone is interested in seeing my Border Collie puppy "Rookie" that I acquired on NFL DRAFT DAY at 7 weeks of age...
    he is now almost 5 months and fast as lightning. Here is a picture from about a month ago.

    He's Very Cute!

    Border Collies are one of the smartest dogs too.

    Cool, he's going to be a very pretty dog. It must suck to have a dog that is smarter than it's owner. :D

    Absolutely.
    You're not supposed to get them leaping before 1 year of age because their bones need to fully develop first. But I've already begun getting him excited about the frisbee by rolling it along the ground and having him grab it from my hand on command. I also take him to the local riverfront here and toss the frisbee and tennis ball, etc. in the water. He eagerly dives in and runs out after it and swims it back. He loves the water and is a natural so far.

    Doesn't hurt that he's a chick-magnet, as well.;)

    I had a buddy who had a dog (Cain) that caught frisbees. He had different colored bandanas that he wore every day. It ws always kind of cool.

    I'm in between dogs right now. But as soon as we get a house, I'm gonna get me a border collie. Smartest dogs ever. I already have the name picked out. Boy or girl, it will be FIDO.

    They're smart...
    but VERY intense.
    Their herding instincts are very influential.
    If you have children or other pets, they will try to herd them and pester them often so you have to keep on your toes to keep them in line. They are also very active-minded so they require activities to keep their little brains busy. If not, they will find their own mischevious ways of entertaining themselves.
    But that aside, don't let me dissuade you. They are wonderfully affectionate, fun and eager to please. Not to mention brilliant.

    Chip off the 'ol block eh Quick? [IMG]

    Great looking pupster. He's got a very mischevious look about him. The picture looks as if he's in between getting into something yet contemplating other little disasters he can create. You can't go wrong with this little fella, he's a stud already. Keep us posted I like seeing him grow. Thanks.
