Dog show and tell. Love it.

Behold, the oxytocin-addled eyes of the (soon-to-be) Korinji watchdog.

I noticed that. I'm partial to black dogs...

This one is half-Lab, half-Border Collie.

Mine is half Weimaraner, half Border Collie.........and the only sign of the latter is the white chin, which makes the poor dog look old before his time. :)
Sadly, he also has the brain of the Weimaraner!

Interesting mix. We had a Border Collie and he was a handful and a half! Never had a Lab but they seem very mellow.

It is interesting. Seems to combine the best of both breeds: intelligence and energy of the collie, though dialed down a few clicks (and no herding behaviors). Affectionate, bonded nature of the lab: constant eye contact and problem-solving with reference to the humans. Comfortable in water. Perfect hiking/camping companion.

This one was a shelter rescue, but I'm told the mix is being done intentionally now because they do so well.

In the UK new 'breeds' have been created which were formerly just 'cross breeds'.
Anything crossed with a poodle acquired an 'oodle' suffix and a hefty price tag.
I have redesignated Max as a 'Weimarollie' . Sadly, although a brilliant new breed in principle, he failed to acquire a single brain cell from the Collie side, except for the 'stalking' creeping motion. :)

I think it is time all pedigree breeds were assessed for genetic health problems and compulsory cross breeding introduced.
Border Collies used to have a healthy amount of cross-breeding going on, and in fact are better described as Working Sheepdogs; ours was huge and had a touch of Golden Retriever back in his ancestry.
It is a crying shame our Kennel Club has introduced a breed standard for them as 'Border Collies', so in the coming years they will become increasingly more sick, deformed and stupid.

Sounds perfect. I loved our Border Collie dearly but it would have been nice if he had liked the water better, and wasn't such a spazz. :smile:

I hope all you dog lovers clean up after your pets, don't let them bark all night, don't assume that everyone loves them as much as you do, and don't let them off the leash in the back country. Otherwise, they are no more than extensions of your selfish egos.

So there.

Fully agreed! My extension is heavy, Newfoundlander.
May all beings have happiness and the cause of happiness.
May they be free of suffering and the cause of suffering.
May they never be disassociated from the supreme happiness which is without suffering.
May they remain in the boundless equanimity, free from both attachment to close ones and rejection of others.

Can I still use my hound Max to track and destroy feral children whose parents need the above guidance? Pretty please? :)

I promise only to feed Max one pussy a day........I call it my 'Trump' rule. ;)

I have a cat too, love it. Dog and cat live in harmony together. Sometimes they can even help each other, like this dog helps these two discussing cats.

Totally agree. We clean up after her, she never barks except if a stranger comes to the door, and then it's a single "woof". And she is never off the leash outdoors, ever, unless it is in our fenced running pen.
