Cooper the Border Collie

Reader Ben. D. was kind enough to send us over a few pics of his Border Collie named Cooper and a note…

Cooper the Border Collie

Cooper seems to have a bit of energy…

The dog pictured is Cooper.  My family has had Border Collies since I was a child.  I have had 3 since I’ve had a family of my own.  All have been raised from pups and I don’t know if it’s my aging mind set or lack of memory, but it seems Cooper has the energy and defiance of all my other dogs combined.  His mother died when he was 4 weeks old so we’ve had him since.  He is now 7 month’s old and I’m assuming he is in the “terrible two’s” stage.  So far training has been a battle.  However he does “sit” on command, just for a second. It’s a start I guess.  He really has a very sweet personality, but then he gets that evil mischief look… and off he goes.  It’s just my wife and I now and we decided to take things one step at a time. Right now we’re revisiting the leash and walking.  Problem is he has an issue with a collar. Once it on he’s fine.  He’s worn a collar since we’ve had him.  It’s just a literal battle getting it on or attaching the leash that he has a problem with.  He rolls over, he tries to spin around wildly, etc.  Anyway, I degress, it’s nice to see this site.  It’s been very informative.”
