    1. how the hell did you get a boarder collie to be an apartment dog? is she old? my girlfriend had to give hers back to the BC rescue because “Holly” couldn’t stand to be separated from her.
      (This breed is one of the most neurotic breeds ever- I’ve seen some whose chief pursuit is to watch water drip. If it doesn’t keep a regular drip flow, they start to freak out and bark at the tap til it does.)
      Anyway- how does she tend to the exercise and stimulation needs of this hyper-actively intelligent breed?

    2. I had a border collie until she died a few years ago. They’re the nicest dogs ever!

    3. Shes the calmest damn thing. She’ll kinda growl/low bark conversationally when people come in or whatever, but almost never really loud and agitated. We let her out a lot to run around on the apartment front lawn, and she catches Frisbees and stuff and loves tug of war, so that’s how we tire her out. That and the occasional running.

      Also we teach her tons of tricks, like high five, play dead, roll over, find all of her toys by name, and all of the apartment mates by name, and the cat as well. They play awesome together, and just do the basic chase / tag shit back and forth across the apartment, but never enough to knock shit over or anything.

      All in all we treat her intelligently, and never really hit her or anything, just stern voices and a ‘time out’ box that she has to sit in when she does something bad. Best and smartest dog I’ve ever had.
