    DefaultHappy Birthday Mr. Vermont... NLR

    Believe it or not, Vermont turned 1 y/o today. I still canīt believe how fast time goes by. He was 3 m/o when I took him home.

    He went from this little fluff ball with pointy ears:



    To this large fluff ball capable of "carpeting" my hardwood floors during shedding season




    Itīs been quite an experience learning to live with a Collie... unfortunately there arenīt any Collie forums to find help with them. they are certainly no Labradors or Lab like in temperament...

    During this year, Iīve learned the following Collie "traits and antiques"

    1. Easiest puppy to housebreak, like Homer.
    2. Doesnīt matter how much you brush them... tangles magically appear from time to time
    3. They are not Lassie... my teenager is a bit dumb LOL. Seriously, the Labs are way smarter than him
    4. Hearding yellow Labs is fun
    5. Running away from a "full speed, tail docked, turbocharged yellow Labrador girl" whenever she decides to play "Lab style"
    6. He gets along incredibly well with Misha and Homer
    7. He LOVES everyone else more than he loves me. Collies are not "one-person" dogs
    8. Collie is synonimous to "sensible soul". They are such little girls when it comes to corrections
    9. Collies are very agile and fast, he can jump and run like a horse... but heīs scared of climbing ONE step of my stairs...
    10. Collies donīt eat... Its a PITA to get this dumb dog to eat.... and those of you with more than 1 dog know that you canīt leave the food there or a "starving" black Lab will eat it.
    11. Heīs a clowny, happy, playful, gorgeous dog with not a single mean bone in his soul.

    Happy birthday pointy nose!
