|Just wondering, because Cirrus has always been this way: When she chooses a place to rest, she lies down away from us most of the time. When we get too close to her, she yips and moves away, even if you just moved your toe! Does your collie do that?
In contrast, our black German shepard Rook is like glue to us, following me everywhere in the house, and always wanting to be close to us to the point of leaning against us, or on us, in the bed, and cries when he can't be near us.
Plus, when we walk the dogs off leash, Cirrus tends to sniff, snoop and wander and not really aware of how far she's going, seemingly so focused on the smells that she doesn't know how far she's getting, and then Rook stops for her. Rook, on the other hand, wanders a little bit, then runs back to his pack leaders.
Is this just how collies tend to be? And why they say GSDs are really loyal? I wonder if GSDs are more pack-oriented with a higher need to be with the leader than collies? Hmmm...
