My wife and I decided it was high time we got our first dog, Darby, a new friend. We so looked for a few weeks and found a Border Collie from the same rescue we got Darby from. So now we have added Jack to the family!

http://picasaweb.google.com/gremlyn1...ziy7L-9Mab0gE#

He is a little timid still. He was an outside dog for his first few years on a ranch in Texas. The owners moved to California and could only keep 4 of their 6 dogs He's starting to become more accustomed to his new surroundings, but I expect it'll take him a couple of weeks to get start really coming out of his shell. He gets along very well with Darby, who just wants to play with him all the time. He's not so sure about that inside, but it starting to play more outside. Glad we could give him a home for Christmas

Awesome! I don't know what I'd without my two dogs Kaya and Eddie. For work today, I have to hike 8 miles round-trip to our remote backcountry lodge in the Adirondack High Peaks for routine maintenance, and of course the dogs come with me. They love the woods! Maybe there'll be enough snow to ski out and back...

Border Collies need lots of exercise! But they can be great dogs and fun to play with if you train them well. I'm sure he will bond tightly with the other dog in a few weeks. I love those pics. The first dog looks so happy to have a playmate!

Congrats, but geez, what a way to take away what few shreds of dignity that an animal that licks it's own private parts has, by posting pictures of it in costume on the interwebz.

Why not just go all out and get them this...



You know, if the other dogs see those pics, they are going to kick your dogs asses.
