Sorry for not posting yesterday, but I got a bit busy sorting things out with our new foster and spent most of my energy trying not to throttle the owners. (Pictures to come)
Our latest foster is a 10 month old Border Collie (we took the summer off and are now addressing the ever present waiting list ... unfortunately, this guy got bumped to the top). This particular guy came into a vet clinic for a Euthanasia appointment ... great, eh? 10 months old and the only people you've ever known have already given up on you. We haven't got much details yet but the reason why they are getting rid of him is because he is too active.
"TOO ACTIVE"? You've got to be kidding me.
*HEADDESK, HEADDESK, HEADDESK*
What did you expect out of a Border Collie?? Why did you get a high energy dog if you didn't want to have a high energy dog?! Argh! How dumb can you be??
I have said it once and will say it again ... if you don't research the breed, you will be disappointed. If you don't know what you are getting into, then figure it out!
Some days I just want to shake people! Sure, that poopsie poo is ever so cute at 8 weeks old, but PLEASE spend some time learning about the breed before you bring them home! Good grief.
This pup's entire world is crubling around him and all these people care about is whether they will be reimbursed for his costs because he is purebred.
