Last year we had to put our 19 year old Border Collie down. She had the loveliest temperament. Just a nice, sweet girl who loved to chase squirrels. We took her to a sheep farm in Didsbury one day where the farmer taught us owners how to teach them to herd. But... (never start a sentence with but, but...), she was allowed into the area and immediately started herding, even though she'd never ever seen a sheep. She was amazing and I still have the video
We still have a 17 year old Giant Pom (an oxymoron if there was ever one) and a 16 year old Beagle. The Pom is starting to tremor, which the vet said was predictable at this age. Not looking forward to his end as he's just adorable.
Anyway, couldn't respond to the other thread about name-calling, so thought I'd say hi this way. I haven't been on here for a few days and just noticed that exchange. I, too, would like to know what dastardly names I called him.
