I have owned Tri Coloured Rough Collies for over 40yrs. Each time we lose one we say no more but it never happens and another one joins our family. I show pedigree cats, Maine Coons, Norwegian Forests and British Tipped so our dog has to like cats. I have had one rescue Rough Collie some years ago and she came through the Sheffield Group. She was 6yrs 6mths when she came to us and we lost her when she was 3 months short of 16 so she was our longest one. We have very recently lost George who was only 8yrs old and that has been a very great sadness to us as he was so young. We could just go out and buy a puppy but we are not as young as before and we are both retired and thought that it would be nice to give a home to a rescue, of course it has to be a Tri and must have lived with cats, lots of them!!! Because of our animals my husband and I have only had 1 holiday in the last 23 years, I just love being with my animals. We have not children so they are our babies.
