|Well, by impulse I meant my tendency to visit dogs in shelters and want to take them all home with me. I currently have a mixed pack. One...Samoa is probably part Aussie or BC. He has some of the tendencies you describe, but is also mostly mellow. His issues might be with something like ceiling fan staring or fear of loud noises. Today I found he hates the car radio because I have turned the radio on to distract during storms. I think he thought past that and surmised a storm was coming, so started to cry.
Dubs...a Corgi mix...is very needy and insecure. She is beautifully responsive to commands, but a little bundle of nerves and often for no apparent reason.
Both of these dogs are from county shelters.
In the past I had a mixed breed Aussie/ACD and she was fine...though had to be kept busy and needed to be watched around children.
My future self...with this future dog...will be retired, and I own my own house with big fenced back yard. Working with my dogs has been my hobby for years, and I guess I am considering turning up the focus on that and really WORKING with a dog.
But reading the posts from Tiller and the nonsensical "legitimate breeder" on the front page has me thinking I'll be back at the shelter when the time comes for this special dog.
Oh, and your blonde and white is lovely. Two out of my four are yellow or buff...so it is a favorite color. I saw a stunning black and white BC lately and I guess he has been on my mind.
