Border Collies here are rare, for some reason no one goes out of their way to drive long distances to buy one and instead go for German Shepherds. They are wildly popular breed around here.
Anyway this guy comes at my house to ask my dad is he could borrow his dog to help herd his sheeps cause his dog (a German Shepherd) is too rough with the herd and he herd that my dad had Border Collie which are number one herders.
My town is really good at making stories. I have a Border Collie, not my dad. My parents have a mix breed (German Shepherd/Labrador/Husky) and he told the man exactly that. He wasn’t going to make a decision that concerns his daughter’s dog and do you know what that guy had the nerve to tell my dad? He told him that he was the father and I had no say in what he decides.
No way I’d let some stranger borrow my dog. Hell no. If he wanted a herding dog, he should have bought a Border Collie and anyway if he had any dog handling skills, he would have trained his German better.
