    Haha. I was about to say about the same thing... "I have Border Collies and I'm not on speed."

    Saga is way less active than I am. When we go for walks around the lake here, she wants to call it quits after one round.

    Murray is an ACD/BC mix, so I'm going to guess that he will be more active than me, which is good, because I want an activity buddy.

    ...at 15 1/2 Rosey can out-go me. LOL

    As it is she goes insane if she doesn't get multiple long walks a day (she can miss one or two days, but otherwise? ANNOYING)

    Hehehehe. Yeah. I just watched Pan zoom like a maniac in a circuit around the living room, including bouncing off the back of the couch. This was after I took her out for her bedtime pee at 2:30 am. Mind you, half an hour later she is now curled up on the couch asleep....crazy dog.

    I'm a bum, but Tiffany is maybe even more of a bum than I am. Walks usually end up with me carrying her.

    Tiffany is definitely more of a sprinter than a marathon runner, haha. She'll do her zoomies around the living room for a few minutes, then she'll nap for several hours.

    I wouldn't say Quinn is WAY more active than me, so I voted somewhat. Like me she is able to stay in for a couple days without going crazy, but any longer and we both start getting a bit edgy. She definitely brings out the more active side of me though and encourages me to do more. We currently aren't doing much of anything now that I have a 2 1/2 foot splint on my leg LOL, but we normally do a lot of hiking and training, especially in warm weather.

    Slightly more active, but I am an active person myself and that normally includes the monster to some degree too. He just has these randoms spurts of crazy, and I do not. :)
    The only difference being I like the land more, and he just goes nutty-bonkers to go swimming. I'm not a huge water fan myself.

    (Ok I admit, coffee has it's effects on me!)
