Last thursday I drove with the boys down to Cowley alberta that is very close to Crow's Nest Pass. All the way down there to pick up a dog. An adorable border collie/akbash. She is very tall as tall as our newfoundland/ lab. She is hugely skinny though. Every time she eats it's twice as much as our big guy. Also she is scared of everything. Loves the kids and is coming around with Q and I. It's depressing that people treat their dogs this way. Isn't she beautiful?
