My Border Collie/Kelpie - Dingleberry

By

Victoria, Australia

Posted April 26, 2016

Dingleberry, our black and white Border Collie has been a wonderful companion for six years. We purchased her at birth and she was trained as a puppy. She is half an Australian Kelpie so she tends to round up all the rest of the animals on the property! She has a little brown under her ears which shows she is half Kelpie. She gets a long well with all the cats, in fact they are great friends and they sleep together and cuddle up when it is cold. She loves company, doesn't like to be by herself much. She loves tummy rubs and always wants to be touched or patted, otherwise she will place her paw on you to remind you that you have to give her a cuddle. Dingleberry barks when she hears a car arriving in the driveway. She is very affectionate with strangers and loves to meet new "humans". In my case, she would not be a very good guard dog! She has her favourite squeeky toy to play with when we are not home, but when we are she loves a game of catch! If you want an active, playful and affectionate dog, a Border Collie is for you! For a snack, she loves her dried pig's ears.
