Heather Varty would like everyone to meet Bailey the Border Collie! Get to know him better in his ‘Intros & Hellos’ profile below! 🙂
What is the name of your border collie?
How old is he?
1.5 years old
How did Bailey become part of your family? (adoption, breeder, etc…)
Was adopted as a puppy from a dog trainer whom had an accidental litter.
Does he have any special talents or tricks?
Bailey is great at learning commands. He learnt twist in 5 minutes and now doesn’t stop spinning. He has a huge obsession with sticks and once found a log that had drifted through the river and managed to drag is around 50ft before admitting defeat.
What is the one thing that you love the most about having a border collie as a pet?
The thing I love the most is how loyal and comforting he is. He will protect you but also give you so much love in return for the slightest bit of affection.
Do you have any interesting or funny stories to share about your border collie?
Bailey once stole a ball from a young child and ran across a huge field with it because he thought it was his from home. Mom wasn’t impressed having to retrieve the ball to hand back to the child. Bailey also fell off a canal path and had to be fished out.
What else do you want people to know about your border collie?
Bailey is a great companion and would not live without his best friend, star. The black and white cat. They are inseparable and we love the bond they have.
