Sweet Dreams

Sweet dreams are made of sheep.
I don't know what Holly dreams about, but when she is deep asleep half off her bed with her little paws going like she is running through a grassy meadow, I imagine that she is chasing sheep in dreamland.

I think every collie owner can relate to this one. The mad dog, full speed run around the yard for no particular reason, it goes by many names, we call it zoomies.

Hero Holly

Thankfully I have never been stuck in a well, but I'm sure if I ever do Holly will save me. Right?

The Round Up

My cousin has a cluster of pugs. The first time Holly met them, she spent a good deal of time moving them from one part of the yard to the other. Do your dogs round up other animals?

Thank You

I think a lot of people will be familiar with the collie burp. We like to believe that it is a compliment.


Holly is an "outside" dog that spends most of her time inside.

The Hunger

Holly always wants whatever we have in our hands, even if it isn't food!

Anatomy of a Collie


Holly loves playing with other dogs, especially her weimaraner friend Duke.

Mirror Mirror

Holly has had her fair share of bad furr days.

The Anchor

Holly has earned herself a nickname of The Anchor over the years. She likes to walk, but it has to be at her own pace, and sometimes breaks are necessary.

Bathroom Lifeguard

Who else has a bathroom monitor? Holly likes to keep an eye on her humans to make sure they don't fall in.
