Our Border Collie just had her 1st birthday and I think my husband has hated her since aout a month after he brought her home. She is hyperactive and prone to naughtiness when bored (exactly like our 4yo daughter). She doesn't bother me too much, in fact she is loose 24/7 to keep goats and chickens safe and she does a good job....even got nailed by skunk coming to cat's dish in the woodshed. She doesn't want much to do with "heel" but she prefers to circle and stop and stare. She and the cat have finally become a bit tolerant of each other even But one thing that drives everyone in the neighborhood crazy is her predator drive. A major trail crosses our property and any and all ATV's and snowmachines and our own plow truck that are running in the yard are to be pursued and bitten and barked at viciously. IT IS SO ANNOYING!!!! Now the plow truck has brakes fixed :goodjob: and hubby has decided to let LilyPup ride in the truck with him and she won't get out when he is done. so we leave the door open and eventually she decides her ride is over. We will be getting a box on the ATV for her to ride in too.....I'm sure she's thinking "It took you this long to figure me out!! Stupid humans!"
