A friend of mine recently told me about Pet Talk and I decided to register and look around. My name is Kelly and I have 2 border collies, Riley and Rebel.

Riley is a black tri female, who I am currently doing agility with. She is showing such great potential, and we have our second fun match on the 23rd of this month. Wish us Luck!
-Here are some pictures [or well.. alot] of Riley;

Rebel is my red merle male. He is such a goofball, and whenever I need a good laugh I go to him. He is one of the most expressive dogs I've ever met.
-Here are lots of pictures of him;











04-09-2006, 01:55 AM
and here are some pictures of them together;

Your BCs are absolutely gorgeous!!! Wow, you're a wonderful photographer :) Welcome to Pet Talk! I hope you enjoy being here and I hope to see a lot more of you and your beautiful dogs. Rebel is awesome at catching his frisbee, my dog, Tango rarely jumps that high! My name is Devan and I live with 4 dogs (Winston-Doberman, Tia-Dachshund, Morgan-Rottweiler & Tango-Border Collie/Toller).

04-09-2006, 02:06 PM
Welcome!!! your dogs are gorgeous!!! :D

04-09-2006, 03:48 PM
Welcome, Kelly! I'm Erica, my boy is a goofy 4 1/2 year-old BC, appropriately named Gonzo :p... not quite as coordinated as your two! I do Flyball & Agility with him, and we tried Herding but he's just too hard for sheep/ducks. I'll be getting a blue merle Cardigan Welsh Corgi girl May 19th, from a working/conformation breeder in Washington. I would LOVE another BC someday (especially after seeing how cute your 2 are together!), but this Cardi/breeder is perfect for my family right now.

WOW. Your Border Collies are stunning!!! Riley & Rebel are definitely 2 intelligent, active BC's - I'm sure they really keep you busy! It's awesome to see another BC member here! I always try getting Frisbee pics, and fail miserably, but yours are amazing. Sorry if you mind me asking, but where do you live? It looks so pretty! :0)

04-09-2006, 05:17 PM
I don't mind you asking at all!
I live in Pennsylvania, and we have about 2 acres of land :) Its perfect for my two! :)

Thanks for all the compliments, everyone! Keep an eye out for more pictures; I took a boatload today :D ;)

WOW, I am in awe of your Border collies!!!!! :eek: :D:D:D They are gorgeous, some of the best looking dogs I've ever seen!! And I have a Border Collie of my own too--Blaze (see my signature), and he's not near the athlete it looks like your dogs are! (even though he'll play fetch/catch all day, and is pretty athletic anyway) Gorgeous photos, thanks for sharing and welcome to Pet Talk!:) And don't BCs rock??!! I love 'em!!!!!!!! :D:D:D;)

04-09-2006, 06:55 PM

This picture is STUNNING!! Riley is incredible! And so is Rebel too! ;) Just curious, but how big are they? Blaze is only 40 lbs around 19/20" tall, and I always thought he was a little on the small side...:)

Rebel is about 21-22 inches and about 40-45 pounds [I need to remeasure/weigh him]

And yup, Border Collies do come in red merle. :)

Welcome to PT! You can see my three dogs in my signature and avatar. Your dogs are beautiful. One of my dream dogs is a Border Collie. I would love to own one someday but they are very active and I'm not sure if I can provide as much excersize as they need. Rebel is astonishing! I love how high he can jump! My dogs could never do that! Did you train him to do that? Rebel is adorable, he is so graceful across that jump. Please share more of your dogs, I'd love to see more!!!
