OMG OMG!!!! Is anyone out there!?!??!!? Pleeease!! I have to tell you what happened last night!!
Well, Hubby and I have been considering getting a dog for ages, and we've been weighing up which breeds are most suited to us etc.... anyway, after much research and thought and discussion etc etc, we decided on a Border Collie.... well yesterday I happened to buy a newspaper, and it had a littler of puppies being advertised in it!!!! So, (of course) I rang up - the breeder was a wonderful lady and very friendly and helpful... so we arranged to go up the same night and see the puppies!! We told her we were interested in a male....
We got there, and there was 8 little gingernut and white puppies waddeling around!! I could've taken them all!!! We saw the mother and was wonderful, very calm and laid back, VERY friendly
Anyway, I fell in love with one little boy, and real chunky little guy with chocolate and white colouring.... and naturally hubby fell in love with a different one.... soooo what else could we do?? WE BOUGHT THEM BOTH!!!!!!!!!! The one hubby liked is gorgouse too, he is much more red/ginger than chocolate and doesn't have much white, just a thin ruff around the neck and white paws..... they both have blue eyes and are totally GORGEOUS!!! They are only 4 weeks old though at the mo, so we have to wait another 4 weekes before we can bring them home... but at least that gives us time to prepare!!! We are also going to sign up to do agility training with them when they are old enough
As soon as we have them home next month - expect PLENTY OF PICTURES!!!!! I'm just SOOO EXCITED!!!!

And HOW many cats?

What are you guys going to do - move into the garage?

Seriously, it's great that you'd getting doggies to go with the kitties. Four weeks is ages to wait, are you sure you'll manage?

The Bod-menagerie grows in leaps and bounds! hahaha

I hope the kitties allow them thru the door.

Congrats on your soon-to-be new additions , Rhea

I'm looking forward to the day when I can add a dog to my little fur family. Thankfully, neither hubby nor my son show signs of dog allergies.

Have you decided upon names for the little cuties?

Yup, we have decided that the chocolate chunky one is to be called Murphey (my chioce) and the little gingernut is going to be called Rye (hubby's choice) now I want to go buy name tags and toys and bedding and treats and and and!!!!!.... :laughing:

(oops, I just spent £30 on Amazon buying doggy books... shhh!!! )

Cool name!!! Now you HAVE to get a dog... can't let a good name like that go un-used!

Rhea how fun! Those puppies are SO cute! Guess you better sit the kitties down and have a heart to heart talk with them... Great names, BTW. But what else could we expect from someone with cats with names like yours!

one good thing is that since border collies need something to herd (they are working dogs as you know) they can herd a group of fekines!!!!
post #16 of 38
That paints a great picture - Bod coming home to find her kitties all lined up in a row waiting as good as gold while the doggies stand guard.

Who knows though - maybe it'll be the kitties standing guard over the doggies . . .

:LOL:.... yes.. well... we are planning the intro's veeery carefully!!! :LOL:
post #18 of 38
Wow - you have chosen some very high energy dogs! Are you planning in training them in agility trails. Border Collies do the best at that! You are so lucky to be getting the new additions, but where are you going to sleep. Pretty soon you will need to buy a bigger house again!

Rhea, You'll have to learn all the whistles needed to teach those babies how to herd kitties. It should be great fun at your house! I hope you're still saving the spare room for me--although I don't mind a few kitties cozying in, as long as they don't have mouse breath!

You are really going to have a full house now. :LOL: :LOL: Mika and I are going to get more kitties and a dog or two when we move into a bigger house in the future sometime.
