I love border collies, especially watching them on agility courses.
Honestly, if I know she was pregnant I don't think we would've adopted her. but since we did and no one told us at the shelter that she was, we assumed she just had her pups and was abandoned.
So when we found out she was, we thought about taking her back just because of the stress of having to separate her and our other dog. She became very protective of us and would get into fights with the other if he came around either of us. I couldn't handle the thought of taking her back just because she was pregnant even though it was stressful. She is a great dog and mom, why judge her because she's pregnant? So when she gave birth dh and I were so very relieved because the pregnancy part was over, now we just have to wait for them to grow.
When they open their eyes dh says its very important for us to socialize them, so that'll be a blast for the kids to play and run with them.
The hardest thing for me will probably be when we have to adopt them out. The mom or hormonal part will come flooding out. LOL But like I said we'll probably keep 1-2 pups. we starting to think that they might be crossed with Boxer. a few have a white tummy and the brown body and dark faces. We'll see.
