I got my first border collie in '85 done agility and obed. Took on a problem 9 month old collie in '92. Worked agility and fly ball. Then an unwanted terrier puppy. in '96. Did a bit of agility.

I desperately wanted another bc puppy when original collie died, but had a baby! Then just as 2nd collie coming to the end, i found a stray, a 6 monthish old corgi x came along, which was never claimed, so no bc pup for me and anyway, terrier was old so lots to cope with there.

Terrier died a few weeks before Christmas, she was 17 so had a good innings, but now is the chance to get my collie pup.

The local rescue, had a litter of bc pups in over Christmas. I have visited twice and reserved a puppy to collect on Thurs. our home check has been done, but I am feeling really anxious about it.

I have worked with dogs as a trainer for 10 years prior to having my dd. I worked agility and obedience so have lots of experience, but I woke this morning, thinking what am I doing?! We only now have one corgi x who is so easy it is unbelievable, for the first time in over 20 years we can go off for spontaneous weekends as mum can cope with one easy dog.

What am I doing getting a boisterous collie now. Am I mad? What would you do?
