My girl will be 12 in few weeks. I can see her slowing down some but she still thinks & acts like a puppy emoticon

If you make up your mind to be happy there's no reason why you shouldn't have a fairly good time.

Hi, I'm Violet and I love border collies. Never even had a dog til I got with my husband almost 12 years ago and he had a border collie Angel that I fell in love with. She was 3 when I first met her and I got to know her for 8 more years and we became best friends until she passed away 3 years ago at the age of 11. Now my husband and I who have two girls ages 2 and 5 just got another dog 14 month old border collie lab mix named Buddy whom has already become a part of the family. Loves the girls and especially my husband who when he gets home from work gets trampled by two little girls and this little guy not to mention his wife.

Hi everyone,
My girl is 13 now. She looks good but after "guarding" my grandson for the day, I could see she was exhausted. I'm crazy about her and am trying to make the most of our days together. She also went through many families and was wild when we got her but she settled down pretty fast. She's very smart like all B.C. We also have an 18 year old feral cat (indoors) and her 16 year old nephew. I love them all!

Glad you found us! Riley is a pretty boy. My girl will be 10 in June and she's my joy, still acts like her puppy self. Oreo has never shown aggression to any one or other dogs (even when they try to attack her) I know when she was a puppy and we'd run from her, she would try to herd us nipping & scratching our ankles. I was always paranoid when kids came around because of the running.
Now, she just likes to herd the lizards in the yard, lol. emoticon

Just found your BC group.

We have a 12 year old bc x Aussie shep. We found Riley at a no kill rescue. He was about a year old and we were to be his 3rd (and final) family.

His first family bought him from a pet store. They were a working couple who were told by a store employee that "Sure, he would be fine in a crate all day while you are at work." You can imagine that did not last long. They brought him to the no-kill.

He was then adopted by a family with kids. A few weeks later the mom brought him back saying that he was aggressive. Whenever she would hug her boys he would bark and growl. Well, he has been with us for 11 years. He only barks and growls and tries to interfere when were wrestling around. He has NEVER gotten agitated from us just hugging. He's tried to insinuate his way INTO it and make it a group hug. But never been aggressive.

He's favorite thing to do is to help herd the chickens it at night and stand guard at the horse gate to make sure Zander does not leave the pasture. (He is SURE what he is doing is a very important job.) ;)

He doesn't act like he is 12 years old. I know we don't have much longer with him. I can hope for another 2 years. When the time does come, it is going to leave a huge hole in our family.
