I had a Scotch Collie, she lived to just shy of 15, bit of trouble with cataracts, but otherwise super healthy. She was a dream dog, intuitive, biddable, eager to please. I miss her every day. I had the chance at a Scotch pup or our Saint, dh's dream was the Saint. I will own another collie one day, to me they are the ultimate breed.
This Sandi and I in March 2010, she passed in June 2010.
