yorkie kind of spoiled
As some of you know I recently got a new dog. A rescue Border Collie(BC).
Until then I never realize how spoiled my yorkies were nor did I realize how much of a slave I was to my yorkies.
Honestly, this new rescue always has this look as if she would to do anything to please me while my yorkies always has the look as if they want know to what I can do for them to please them.
This BC would eat anything I put in her dish or give her. My yorkies hold out for better food or treats and would look insulted if I offered them something they are not intrested in eating at that time.
As for going outside to potty. "NO", they can't all go potty at the same time even though they are all outside. When they are ready to go outside, they demand I open the door for them or when they are ready to come in, they demand I open the door to let them in. I'm offiically the "door boy" or "door girl" in my case. Not with this BC.
As for sleeping arrangement. My yorkies takes the best spots on the bed. I'm usually sleeping in a little corner of my bed so I not to disturb them. This BC would move aside to make room for me or get off the bed.
Honestly, this dog is such a contrast to my little one. I like my new BC a lot. She is a lot sweeter dog but doesn't have the independence or spunkiness of my yorkies. Plus they are cute as anything!! I hate to say this but those are 2 traits I like in a dog. What can I say? I'm glutton for punishment.

LOL - that's too funny! I don't think I'd know how to handle a "normal" dog!! I'm used to being abused too! Well, your Border Collie is in for quite a treat, it won't be long before he's pushing you around too - you'll see!!!

I agree Yorkieagility, it seems I've always had dogs that were fairly compliant. But not Bo, boy he bulldozers his way through just like he owns the place and has from day 1! Maybe they're just really confident little pups?? Whatever the reason, I am thouroughly smitten!!

So glad to hear of your newfound happiness in adopting BC! My Sampson (Rotty) is adopted also. He was very abused...even shot directly in the face....blind in one eye. He is definetly the gentlest pet I have! People tend to want to baby Yorkies because they are small....turn them into little Princes and Princesses. However, they are fiesty and brave because they were originally bred to kill rats. They are small so they can fit into pipes and drains and brave (most of the time) so they will not back down, but kill the rats. Who would have guessed?!?
