Hi Dawn,
My mom thinks collies are the most wonderful dogs in the world. In fact she thinks I am the most wonderful collie in the world except when I get diarrhea butt. My previous owner did not feed me right so I have a very sensitive stomach, but mom makes me special food to help my digestion. I have two pals who are at my nini's house who are shelties. They are very different from me....a little neurotic at times and barky but they are great pals of mine. I think you have a very good knowledge between collies and shelties. I hope a nice rescued collie like me can find a way to your home someday in the future and find a great family to live with just like mine.

I get what I- want or I walk!

Well said! Not much mention of the other side of the collie coin....smooths! Our coats are even easier to care for then the rough coats!

Yeah, collies aren't Lassies, they're even better. Or at least Alva is. But my enthusiasm about dog training could be an explanation...

I've been asked a couple of times: "So, this is that middle-sized collie, right?" What? Middle-sized? Like there was miniature and giant version of collie breeds among smooth and rough collies... I do understand that laymen can confuse shelties and collies and think shelties are mini-collies but where on earth they have found that idea of some middle-sized collie? Maybe it's a confusion too. I tell them that there is only one breed called rough collie, the other is smooth meaning shorter coat and what they think as mini-collie is actually a totally different breed called shetland sheepdog. So no other Lassie-look-alikes in any size. And then they answer me that Alva looks so small. That collies were bigger when they were young. I'd say those people were smaller back then. Alva is actually 1 cm over the breed standard according to FCI (but fits in the AKC standard, would even be small).
