Hi Wendy, welcome to the team!! emoticon

Hi Jane, welcome to the team!! emoticon

Isn't it funny how they can sense the water and love to play in it? Oreo loves to play in the lake and she knows as soon as we get in the truck where we are going. Once we get to the water, she starts pushing me out so she can swim and play with her frisbee. emoticon

Hi, I am Wendy from Oklahoma. We have a Border Collie, Mele (pronounced Meelee). My husband found her abandoned or lost, on the side of the highway in Texas as a young little puppy about 5 weeks old. For an entire week, she had to travel in the truck w/ him, until he was able to bring her home. She is extremely smart and protective; she is also VERY stubborn. Her FAVORITE thing to do is to go to her uncles house to play in his pond. She even knows the way to his house because once we go "straight, instead of turning right" about 3 miles from his house, she goes berzerk. Mele has an older sister named Riley who is a Cocker Spaniel. Sometimes, I swear I can see Mele roll her eyes when Riley acts goofy.

Hi Jenn, welcome to the team and Sparkpeople. This is an awesome site and of course, I love this group!! :-)

My fur-baby loves loves loves the water. We go down to the lake every weekend, and as soon as we start pulling down the drive, she's pushing me to get out even though we're not there yet, lol. Her favorite is fetching her frisbee from the water, I had to buy her a floating one because she kept taking her regular one out and it would sink.

Sorry about the loss of your grandfather. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone,

I am amazed how many different groups there are on Sparkpeople. I am new to Sparkpeople and just joined the Border Collie Lover group now.

My beautiful boy is named Edmund (or Eddie for short) and will turn 13 on October 3rd. Do all Border Collies love swimming? Eddie can't get enough of the lake. Sometimes, we have to go out and 'herd' him back to shore because he heads straight across the lake and doesn't always stay near shore. He doesn't like being 'herded' by his family though, even if we only do it because we worry he'll go out too far to swim back to shore. He does help me keep fit with all the swimming I have to do just to keep up with him and ''herd' him occasionally.

I'm 37, almost 38, and live in Toronto, Ontario and cottage near Parry Sound, Ontario. I have a lot of weight to lose and have been side-tracked for the past three weeks because of the death of my grandfather. We were very close, but I am trying to keep busy and take it one day at a time, although sometimes I see something that was important to him and lose my composure for the part of or the rest of the day.

Jenn.
