Our Borders Likes and Dislikes

Our Border Collies are all different with different likes and dislikes

 Lets start with Ziggy our puppy

 

Name Ziggy
Age 6 months
Siblings Shaggy age 10 and Scrappy age 5
Family Human Mom, Dad, Brother and Sister
Likes Loves food, loves snacks and ginger biscuits
People Very people friendly, loves to say hello, cries if you don’t say hello whether you are stranger or someone she knows. Loves Katie her human sister.
Quirks Odd kink in her tail which goes to the right, tiny white beacon on the end of the tail. This tail seems to long for her body, she wags it all the time, banging it against anything in the way, you sure can hear her coming with it.
Fun Loves to play and loves to see people, very friendly. Loves her slipper, given to her when arrived, to play with.
Talking Loves to bark at anything, not a quiet dog at all, moans and groans. Can have quite a barking conversation with you at times, (wish I knew what she was saying).
Listening skills Likes or sits and watch and listen to what is around her, will occasionally look at the tv if something catches her eye
Stimulation Loves to play with her slipper, lemons, stones, sticks, anything that she finds interesting, can easily stimulate herself and play. Ziggy does things her way, creating her own games.
Digger Yes. She loves to do gardening and digs, pulls out grass (seems like she is trying to find the Crickets that are hiding under the grass, not sure but sounds like this could be what she is doing), seems to be looking for something.
