Can we have a pets section?

Here are some photos of my new border collie puppy. Actually, I only took one of these photos (her lying in the grass), but I like the other two because you can see her mismatched eyes.

Oh, and she's not as innocent as she looks, I've got lots of fang marks in my arm! But I still love the little hairball.

I've named her Indi, but her registed name is Legally Blonde laugh

Hope I made these thumbnails correctly, too.

Here was our delinquent when she was a pup.
Yes - aptly named Panda (no thumbnail of this photo)

This is my dog Mickey, he is a half pug half terrier, and he sometimes thinks he is a cat!!! Although sometimes you could swear that there is a human inside him with all the facial expressions he pulls! smile

Crystal- I love little Panda, didn't she grow up to be handsome! Border Collie's make great b/w photo subjects wink

Does she need a lot of grooming? I'm wondering how hairy my pup is going to be when she grows up, she already has a pretty thick coat of fuzz.

Grooming is not too bad with borders. Panda has very soft fur around the ears which tend to knot up a lot. Get the pup used to brushing etc very early. Particularly the tail and back of legs. Then there should be no problems.
We would only ever have 2 borders together (if space permits). They make great companions to each other and tend to keep out of mischief more.
Hey Michael, just love the antics of your dog!
And Mickey sure look mischievious enough to really get into lots of trouble!

yea thats pretty much how he escapes the house. parents have tried evrything to keep him in but he ends up jumping over that fence to the ground with is a good meter and half. hurts himself all the time. i think hes scared of the wind and likes the shelter from it round the front of the house..

Mickey is very mishievious!!! And spoilt rotten. smile He will do anything to run like mad out the front door to chase cars and will do anything to get what he wants. smile

Michael, my dog would not even be able to jump up on the thing, let alone keep the balance to climb it! smile Very smart dog.

I wish I could have two border collies! But, there is always someone home at my house so Miss. Indi is never by herself. We're also going to puppy kinder, and after that, obedience and agility.
Mickey is a little sausage, I love him!
And Hammer- I've never seen a dog do tightrope before. He looks really impressed with himself up there too.

Hi everyone! Love the pictures of the Border Collies and the tightrope dog, that made me laugh!
We have 2 cats, who I firmly believe think they are human.

This is Deemy (a stray we adopted)

This is Tassie (named so because she looked like a baby devil)

This is our cat Bevo, 20 months old and possibly the best behaved cat I've ever owned. We adopted him from the Sydney Dogs Home the day before he was due to be put down.

Just gorgeous Rob! I had a grey rabbit 'Metro' (don't ask!), and he was fabulous! I toilet trained him to go in a kitty litter tray in his hutch, and on hot days he would stay inside the house, hop over to the back door when he needed to 'go', would do it in the compost heap and then come back inside again...smart rabbit. He would love to sit on my lap and be scratched behind the ears, and got on well with the cats and dog! They make great pets, and a wise choice with 2 females!! wink

Wow Jane!!! I can't believe how much Tango has grown... amazing and just so very cute. laugh

My little Jilly-Bean has just turned 9 months old and runs the household with military precision... we get "told" when things don't get done when they're supposed to. laugh
