Kind of a random question but has sheltie popularity gone down recently? It seems like when I was a kid there were a lot of shelties around where I lived. We had ours and I know a few of our neighbors had them. I remember running into them fairly often while we had our three. I don't see them around anymore outside of agility. I run into papillons more now than I do shelties. Of course they are very well represented in agility. Also, I have sheltie withdrawals lately.
