    Just seen an ad on our local facebook page. A photo of a pure white, maybe 14 week old, collie pup. At least they said it was a collie. Wanting a farmer to take it one day a week to help with socialisation and training. Loses me.

    Kind of day release for dogs. Maybe they're hoping one day a week on the farm will teach the collie to be sheepdog when he's older. :D

    Hope the poor little thing isn't a merle to merle mating. There's been a few lately, a number of which were deaf and/or blind.

    How odd...... Saying that i was asked he other day if there were places that would foster a dog for a year. I said you'd be exceptionally lucky with foster homes being like hens teeth, and probably be prepared to pay. " Pay ?????" Was the response I got...... The dog in question is a non pedigree Stafford, so it's not like they are thin on the ground.

    It has been vet checked apparently and is ok as it has a black nose and eyes.
