Brogan Perkins would like to introduce her two lovely border collies, MIlo and Mack McQuoid who live in New Zealand.
How old are Milo and Mack?
Milo – 2yrs (3 yrs on 9 March 2017), Mack 2yrs (3yrs on 25 November 2017)
How did they become part of your family?
Both dogs came from breeders in New Zealand
Does Milo and Mack have any special talents or tricks?
Milo is great at the usual tricks: roll over, spin, down etc and at ball play. Mack is not as good at tricks but is incredibly fast and a great jumper he loves jumping into your arms.
What is the one thing that you love the most about having a border collie as a pet?
I love how involved they are in family life. You can’t do anything without them being there.
Do you have any interesting or funny stories to share about your border collie?
The other day when I came home Mack had somehow got my dress off the washing line and had his head and one leg through the arm hole and was wearing it like a dress!
What else do you want people to know about your border collies?
Mack loves our cat Sirius Black. When Sirius was a kitten and we were familiarizing them I thought Mack had a high prey drive but it turns out he just wanted to play with him. They are always chasing each other around the house. Milo is a quirky dog with some typical border collie traits he hates bees/wasps, pegs being taken on/off the washing line, us igniting the gas stove the list could go on. He is also is quite a fearful dog and has fear aggression towards other dogs which makes it hard sometimes. He has his friends which is good he can still socialise with some dogs but it has meant Mack missed out on a more socialising due to being younger. Milo is getting better with age though.
