Default New Dog Day

Meet Gabe or Gabriel, the latest addition to my family. He's a Border Collie, and right now seems happy to be here. I've not had a puppy in decades; all my other dogs came to me as rescues. But I'm used to Border Collies; we've had three.

That's so great Jim. Got to love dogs. Our family has always had dogs. Just bought my adult daughter a Cavalier King Charles puppy. We lived in England for years and had a Cavalier when they were little.

So cool for you. I am a big dog lover. I miss having one.

I like most dogs but I especially like Border Collies. They are so smart.

I envy you. Enjoy the new member of the family.

Hi Jimmy,

Very cute dog! Our next neighbor has a border collie that is a couple years old and yesterday they just picked up a new, 5-week-old border collie puppy. I just met him today. Just incredibly cute little dog.

Those border collies just run and run once they are big enough! And they are pretty fast, too! They try to outrun our car each time we drive out of the driveway. We always let them win!

- Glenn

That's a great looking Border Collie, congrats!
I have a real soft spot for Border Collies, I grew up with one, who, was very very smart.
I hope the two of you, have a very long & happy life together.

Congratulations! Great looking dog. My significant other had a border collie for years, she feels they're great dogs - smart. Best of luck!
