Exactly what the title says. Whenever I go somewhere and mention that I have a Border Collie, most people say things like "I am so sorry for you," "bless your soul," and "why would you ever get one of THOSE dogs?" Even when I went to the local dog bakery to get food, one of the workers who I see there all the time made a comment about how I'm "crazy" for having a Border Collie. I mean, it's good that most of the people I've run into are "scared" of owning a BC, though... because they definitely aren't a breed for the typical dog owner who expects their dogs to entertain themselves. There are so many BC's on Chaz, though, which is strange. I guess it's because most of us on here are "crazy dog people." lol. I'll definitely admit that Rory has his moments, especially now that he's 8 months old and in that "teenage stage." I've never owned a breed larger than a chi before, so I'm still unsure if it's because he's a larger breed, or because he's a BC. He's really not that bad, though... he definitely doesn't merit anyone "blessing my soul" for having him, lol. So, BC owners, have you experienced this before?
