Hi all, I have wanting a dog since the last 3 years and border collie is the breed I always had in mind. I am now looking at a pup (second time this year) and going in internet I started panicking again so I need advice to definitely give up or just go for it. This is my life: I am 30, I work fulltime, office hours, in medical research. I have my own house, with a medium sized garden, live in a village quite close to open spaces, parks and hiking routes and love outdoors activities (go running 3 times per week in the mornings, although I could make it everyday if that would suit best the dog, like hiking, cycling and walking). Also like reading, cooking, meditation and home stays on weekend evenings. I am not a couch person myself and enjoy mental estimulation (for what I think I would enjoy training a Collie). I don't have family around to leave the dog with, I could be getting a dog walker 3-4 times a week. I have to decide this week and need your advice. Many thanks!
