How many of you are Border Collies of different colors? Do people ask your owner what breed of dog you are and then not believe then when they find out you are Border Collie just cuz you aren't Black and White? blue dog

Every Single day... And there's the "No you're wrong, that has to be a collie/golden/insert other breed mix".

Granted from mom as a genetics major and coming from a family of all black and whites (well dad's tri with brindle points) no one can figure out where mine and my brother's red sable came from.

I'm blue and white, I haven't been confused with a different breed, but my litter brother was called a husky when he was young, he's a slate merle and see below for my daughter.

Like Happy, we're also told Ava couldn't be any part Border Collie because "Border Collies don't come in that color" laugh out loud

More people think she's a purebred Brittany than even half Border Collie. It annoys me because if you see Ava side by side with a Brittany they look nothing alike. No similarities in the slightest, aside from the fact they're both dogs.. haha

ETA:
Oh, we've also had one person insist that she had to be some kind of spaniel because "No other breed has that white blaze going up the nose." confused (I don't think there's an emoticon that can match the face I made when she said that. LOL!)

Hey, Teddy. I see that you like playing with that red-holey ball. Do Moss & Tessy play with it too? We purchased one several years ago. Jackson rolled it a few times and never touched it again. Georgie would pick it up and toss it (only because he knew he'd get a reward for doing so), and all Clemmie did was sniff it and move on. Just curious if all of your crew like it.

I always seem to have a few new toys to play with too. My mom & dad keep a bin of toys, acquired over the years, and recycle them. Oohhh.....roo-roo.....haven't seen or played with that one for months or possibly years!
