By February 27, 2013

Best known as the film and TV character Lassie, the Collie is among the more popular dog breeds, and for good reason. These are gentle and loyal dogs that get along remarkably well with children. Sure, your Collie may not be able to tell you that someone fell in a well, but he will act as a guardian to his loved ones.

Is this the breed for you? Learn all about the Collie dog breed. Every Collie I have known has been silently watchful, gentle and stoic under distress. Most of the Collie owners I have known will tell me that they will always have Collies. Of course, this is often the case for enthusiasts of nearly any breed. However, to me, there is something about the Collie that is remarkably noble and wise. Do you have a love for this breed? Talk about your Collie!

First collie I had was from an Idaho farm. We had just moved there and my 8 year old son was temporarily in a body cast and confined to a wheelchair. I thought a puppy could ride with him and help him make some new friends …. and it worked. There was a parade of kids wheeling him to school and of course the whole family loved that dog. There have been two males and two females since, sort of in succession.
