Conventional wisdom says that young puppies come to us as blank slates. Full of promise and limitless potential, ready to be molded into your ideal companion as long as you do your part – provide lots of love, the right amount of discipline, and appropriate training along the way. If you’re a caring, responsible pet owner, there’s no reason that your puppy should not grow up to be a model canine citizen.
You’re going to be committed to him or her for life
I’ll be committed to helping you in any way, shape or form for the life of your puppy/dog, therefore it’s critical that you assume the responsibility to see to his or her needs, which means physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ll be providing you with ample training information; please read it and apply it daily.
When you are thinking about buying a Border Collie, educate yourself about the pros and cons of the Border Collie breed, and what is required of you to have a successful life with the pup you purchase.
I want to commend The American Kennel Club for acknowledging we Breeders, who strive to breed dogs, who are able to demonstrate their genetic abilities throughAKC sports.
The American Kennel Club wishes to acknowledge those individuals that have excelled at breeding dogs that have proven to be outstanding in AKC sports. The commitment to preserve, protect and improve a breed represents the very essence of the AKC. Thompsons Border Collies received the award for Herding, Border Collies.

Treat me kindly, my beloved master, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me
From time to time, people tell me, “lighten up,
it’s just a dog,” or, “that’s a lot of money for just a dog.” They don’t
understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved
for “just a dog.”
There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept from fear and apprehension. One of these days is yesterday, with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday. We cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is beyond recall.
