Dogs - Border Collie
The Border Collie originated in Scotland in the gentle hills which form the English/Scottish border. "The Borders" is the name of this area. The dogs were bred to herd sheep and are still in use on sheep farms today. Sheep dog trials have shown how these well-trained dogs respond to their master's calls and whistles. They can separate one sheep from the flock and herd it into a pen, or guide the whole flock wherever the shepherd requires the sheep to be.

Border collies have a high intelligence and are the top herding breed. An extremely alert and energetic dog, he needs to be kept occupied or will become bored. Bred to run at top speed to round up wandering sheep, a border collie needs a big yard and
of exercise. He thrives on training and input from the owner.

PROVERBS 12:10 "A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal"
||Coqui belongs to Margie Morrell, South
Africa. She loves chasing a frisbee!
a sheep wanders off and gets separated from the flock, a collie will
pursue it and herd it back to safety. A sheep is a valuable animal. The
shepherd is so happy when the lost sheep returns! The Bible says that we
are often like sheep that wander away from from the church flock. It hurts
God when we reject his love and teachings. He is overjoyed when we repent
of our willfulness and return!
