Smooth Collie. We've done a lot of research and they are the right size and temperament for us. DS1 is about to start secondary school and is desperate to have some responsibility for him (although could be a her). DS2 is a little more cautious but this will be so good for him.
Very exciting! Dh is very keen on getting a smooth collie (we already have a Toller and he thinks a smooth would be a good fit with our lovely but rather wussy boy). We’re hoping to go to Crufts to meet a couple of breeders who dh has been in contact with so might see you there!
