15 Things All Border Collie Owners Must Never Forget

#1 Don’t be upset when I jump for joy when you come through the door.

I only live for ten or fifteen years. You are what makes that time enjoyable. It’s hard on me when you go away.

#2 Give me time to understand what you want from me.

I don’t always get it right on the first try, but I promise I’m trying as hard as I can.

#4 Don’t be angry with me for too long.

And please don’t lock me up to punish me. You have your friends and family to keep you happy and entertained. I just have you.

#5 Talk to me.

Sure, we don’t speak the same language, but the sound of your voice brightens my whole day.

#6 Remember that I’ll never forget how you treat me.

Teach me that humans are made of love, not pain. And don’t ever let me forget it.
