    See the little pink spots on the nose? Watch out for sunburn there. Collies/sheps are prone to this, my collie Katy had her issues with it. I tried putting sunblock on there, but you know how a dog is with stuff on thier nose. She'd lick it off in no time. Ended up that making sure she could chill inside the house fixed the problem.

    That dog is awesome.

    Also seems to be a symbol of the rebirth of your new life. Take care of yourself and new family and there will be plenty of good times for many years to come.

    Ah caught you smiling at me, That's the way it should be,
    Like a leaf is to a tree, so fine.

    Ah all the good times we had, I sang love songs so glad
    Always smiling, never sad, so fine.

    *As we walk down the country lanes, I'll be singing a song,
    Hear me calling your name.
    Hear the wind within the trees, Telling Mother Nature 'bout you and me.

    Well if the sun shines so bright, Or on our way it's darkest night
    The road we choose is always right, so fine.

    Ah can your love be so strong When so many loves go wrong
    Will our love go on and on...

    * Chorus

    My, my la de la come on now it ain't too far,
    Tell your friends all around the world,
    Ain't no companion like a blue eyed merle
    .

    Come on now well let me tell you,
    What you're missing, missing, 'round them brick walls.

    So of one thing I am sure, It's a friendship so pure,
    Angels singing all around my door, so fine.
    Yeah, ain't but one thing to do Spend my natural life with you,
    You're the finest dog I knew, so fine.

    When you're old and your eyes are dim, There ain't no old Shep gonna happen again,
    We'll still go walking down country lanes, I'll sing the same old songs,
    Hear me call your name.

    Awesome looking pup there Dan and she has great coloring. I have a black and white Aussie and he's a fantastic 4 legged friend. A very loyal dog that likes to project their master(s) to no end. Be warned though, that they like to play incessantly and will drive you crazy sometimes trying to get you to play with them. They have an undying energy...mine can go on a 3 mile run with me and not even pant when we get finished.

    If you are keeping her inside, make sure to get a crate as they stay 'pup minded' for about a year and a half and the crate makes training them even easier. Also, keep a variety of toys available or your furniture and walls will become a favorite outlet for unused energy.

    I'm sure you've already read about most of this already, just thought i would reiterate it just in case.

    excellent choice in dog!

    I was going to post a link to that thread, but the SG search results for "bullsh|t" were too numerous

    sometimes you have to think outside the box to get inside the box .
