My brother just isn't always on top of the facts concerning his border collies. Jake, the one he has had for a long time, is AKC and of course has his "manhood" because no one should mess with-your "manhood" LOL!! Then bro was given a female border. She is AKC but the owner moved and didn't leave the papers behind with her. I knew the owner, and saw her papers displayed in his business. anyway, a in Feb the female had 10 or 12 puppies. Bro is keeping one, and still has 2 males to get rid of. Female went into heat and he "thought" it lasted 14 days. So he kept her separate from other dogs for 14 days. Then he got really really busy and wasn't watching her as closely, didn't notice her gaining weight or anything. He heard a noise last night. She had dug a hole and given birth to 9 MORE PUPPIES!!!! So he is hustling to get rid of the last 2 males. Drama Queen Lucy wouldlike one, so I will take one to her this weekend or next. Then I am not sure what he will do with the other. I am, of course, because I strongly recommended getting her spayed, but "dogs can't go into heat that soon, and even if she does I can keep her from getting pregnant." Famous Last Words. The puppies are full border collie, because the only male she was around was my nephew border collie. Hmmmm..... This is the same Daddy Dog that bro told me wouldn't know what to do with a dog in heat, ROFL!!!! Anyone near OK want a border collie around Christmas??
