Hello from a 'Newbie'

Post by Jann on Fri Feb 06, 2009 3:48 am

Very Happy bounce Hi there - I recently moved into the Barnsley area (Oxspring) from Bonny Scotland where I worked as a Shepherdess for 8yrs.

I have a rescued German Shorthaired pointer (aka the mad pointer from hell affraid ) who came to live with me 6yrs ago because her owner said she was 'out of control' .... six years on .... I agree! lol! No ... seriously, she is bouncy and very energetic but has responded well to training and is a very devoted dog (devoted to her dinner ... devoted to rolling in pooh ... devoted to slobbering all over me ... Lol)

I also have 'The Wonder Dog' ... a working border collie who has been my right hand for the last 8yrs ... he is called the wonder dog as he always has me wondering what he will do next .... lol

The 'Old lady' of the family (no, not me!) is a cross beared collie with a mop .... sensible, faithful, gentle ... but has a compulsive disorder ... she just HAS to eat pooh .... doesn't matter what sort of pooh .... No .... enough said lol!

And then there is the Springer .... .... rescued from being pts because he is ... a springer! Nutty as a fruitcake, but happy and jolly and silly and .... great fun! bounce

I had my beardy clipped (I have only had her a couple of months) as she was so matted up that it was impossible to get a brush through her coat without hurting her .... I guess I will have the joy of the full long coat when it grows Lol!

Yes, ours came totally shaved due to matting approx 12m ago. It has taken a bit of a 'power struggle' to sort out the grooming but we're getting there. He's a young guy so we have had puppy coat to deal with too!! Hope yours is settling down ok, she sounds great, a real beardie except for the 'sensible' comment. Ours is nuts!

Mine is an older lady - she is pretty calm and sensible most of the time .... but she has her moments Lol
She is totally obsessed with herding the Springer (not very sensible to start with ... ever tried herding a Springer? ! Lol) ...... and the Springer is totally obsessed with chasing the Pointer ... it is hilarious! Pointer ... Boing! Boing! Boing!' ... Springer 'Boing! Boing! Boing!' ...... Beardie .. 'Boing! [stand and stare] ... Boing! [stand and stare] Boing! Lol ...... and the working collie follows at my heels like a sweetheart ... all that 'Boinging' going on around him Lol

Hi Jann, welcome to our forum, sometimes informative, sometimes helpful, sometimes mad but we always try to keep it fun!
I've got a Border collie cross and a full collie, he came from BARC just over a year ago all his posts are on here he had a little problem.........he attacked other dogs, but he's much better now and definitely worth the effort and hard work.
Thanks for joining and i look forward to reading about your rampaging lot!
