I am glad you found me. My name is Patti and I have been raising Border Collies since 1996, when my sons were quite young. I often joke that my kids were raised by border collies, but its kind of true. Alex used to sit in the puppy pen with a book and a lap full of puppies. Erik went on the work at a Humane Society and loves putting his puppy days experiences to good use. He has even taught me a few new tricks. My youngest Collin can still be occasionally talked into coming over and giving me a hand with chores. And now I have 3 happy and fun grand kids to help with the socializing.
