Border collies are the absolute smartest of the breeds...

Does she herd people into groups as well. My son's border collie used to 'herd' kids into a small group if he let her.

She's better at herding me. Sometimes my wife or I might say something about going to the dog park, meaning after a while. Dogs don't really understand "after a while;" they only understand "dog park." So from the time the words are mentioned until we actually get in the truck to go, any movement away from the door to the garage is accompanied with nips to my heel, while any movement toward the door to the garage is accompanied by gleeful circling.

When in camp and we are outside thay're on leashes.

In the car , windows down about an inch and if its hot the a/c is on with remote start.

If the trailer is with us when we stop we put them in the trailer with the windows cracked and the Maxxair fans on.

I have a Pomeranian/chihuahua mix that does the 'gleeful circle' thing. He also seems to understand the 'inside voice' command when he's going nuts to convince me to let him out or feed him. He and his brother throw themselves into laps for belly rubs and have a habit of flailing there forepaws together starting at their nose like they are running in place to get attention. The other dogs have picked this 'pet me' signal up and use it as well. Dumb animals I think NOT.

McDave - loved reading about the intelligence of Lupe. While it made me a bit jealous (my sweet Daisy can sometimes be described as intelligent as a bag of hammers, bless her heart) - I realize there are different intelligences with breeds who emphasize one thing over another.

As a bloodhound, Daisy's "snout smarts" are second to none. The idea that she would lay quietly watching a deer pass by is ludicrous :-)

She would howl and trumpet at the top of her lungs and sniff her way to find that huge funny looking dog! Then she'd play with it and love it like the sweet bucket of sugar covered in fur that she is.

Camping's a blast with her when you get her on the trails for a walk. New smells in new locations are a real joy for her. Here's a pic of her enjoying the trails around Watkins Glen, NY and then being a little tired back in the trailer :-)

As an update to our Rescue. We just received IRS Non-Profit standing as a 501c3 AND we are close to being approved as a Network Partner with Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab Utah. We also are full, seems January is a big month to abandon dogs, we have 60 dogs and 40 puppies almost all of whom were going to be killed by various Animal Control Agencies as they too are full. Many of the puppies are not even old enough to go to homes, only 4-6 weeks.

So, each day we train the less than sociable ones trying to prepare them for their new homes.

We bought our first RV years ago so we could take our Labrador at the time and Golden Retriever at the time with us on vacations. Best decision we ever made.

My Best

Bud

IMHO, anyone doing no-kill rescue at that scale* is doing God's Work....

We have 4 rescues in our little pack of doggies, and we're at capacity now.

Please keep up the good work...

*fixed a dumb, dumb typo caused by auto-correct at this point. Sigh..

Border Collies are a special breed and, like you said, very smart! She did well in finding you!

Thanks rmkrum, its what I would have done years ago if it paid, ha. Unfortunately new truck and AS may sit for this year, breaking up a fight between a dangerous Pit and an American Bull Dog I blew a disk and do not want surgery. Still function, but not well and driving is not very comfortable. Time will tell. Thanks for adopting, four is more than enough.

Be well,

Bud

Ouch! Take care of yourself.

We've always had rescues. They all seem to appreciate the second chance as well...

Looks an awful lot like a border collie on the left. That eye contact is impossible to ignore.
