Are your new clients not turning out as well as you'd hoped, Hosta?
I've had Border Collies most of my life, usually 2 at a time. Some are easy to train, like my lovely Tigger who died last year. Some less easy. But I had one, years ago, who seemed untrainable and he killed chickens and small animals. The dead creatures would be left under the oak tree, one time it was a dozen of a neighbours chickens. We had 3 acres and it was really hard to keep him in, some of the boundary was hedging and he always managed to wriggle through. He also had a tummy problem, constant diarrhoea. I took him to the vet who said he was inbred and not normal. He said I should have him put down, so I did. Still cried though.
Been gardening, bottom trellis bed, not quite finished, but it's too hot.
OH is back from Norfolk this afternoon.
