We've just been all the way to New York to meet this little girl. She is a five day old border collie and will be coming to be our personal trainer next month. Mike was devastated when we lost our previous BC in April. I hope he can remember what life with a puppy is like!

By the way for anyone who doesn't know, New York is a tiny village quite close to the original Boston in Lincolnshire!

Sue I am just reading this and realizing you lost your wonderful Meg. I am so happy that you have found a puppy replacement. Such an adorable little face. I hope this new family member brings you much love. I send a big belated hug to you for your loss of Meg, and a big hug of congratulations for your new puppy gain. Sharon

So pleased that you are getting another. Do you have BC rescue centers in England?

We have one not too far away but they only seem to have dogs with big problems and we didn't feel up to that.

Beautiful baby!

Love Border collies! And, yes, they are sooooo smart!! Looking forward to pictures! Even the ones when she gets into trouble!

Congratulations on your new family member ,who will find things you never knew that you still owned.You now have 2 months to puppy proof your house.Electrical leads are great to chew ,thankfully a lot of computer related items are now wi fi ,so less to remember about.
Put Maisie out side, as soon as she wakes up or eats ,this will help to cut down on toilet clean ups.

How sweet. Son n law lost his BC over a yr ago and is still devastated. Haven't been able to talk him into another yet. My daughter says if he had to choose between her and Tippy Tippy would have won hands down. She was so very smart and went with him everywhere accept church... I loved her also and really have missed her, she came everyday to see us.

Ahhhh Mike is much the same.

how cute is that......

She's gorgeous Sue. My Amy's dog is called Maisie too, but she is a Groodle. (Golden Retriever crossed with a Poodle) Mum's new puppy is giving her a run for her money and is like a whirlpool! I do hope she settles down - her name is Miss Lily Rose! Good luck with your Maisie. Love Chris

Oh, sweet puppy breath! Lucky mom and dad and luckier Maisie.

"Twubble" made me laugh! Think I'll name my next puppy that.

by pennyhal2 02 Sep 2018

It's hard to fill the hole in your heart left when you lose a fur member of your family. But, a new puppy can warm your heart again and bring new adventures to your home. I want to know what your are going to name this darling little girl?

by sewdeb 02 Sep 2018

I wish you many years of happiness with your new family member! I, too am glad you clarified WHICH New York, since I was wondering why you didn't stop by to have a visit! :-)

by crafter2243 Moderator 02 Sep 2018

She will fill the void fast in spite of all the work ahead. I am glad you stated where New York js located. At first I thought "Wow that is a long way to go, to pick out a puppy".
My girl is 13 years old and past the average age of a German Shepherd.
The thought often occurs to me.......what would I do.
I hope we will see future pictures of Maisie

by antjemaus22 02 Sep 2018

I want one - but we are too old to start again. I had one a long time ago.I am jealous!!

spendlove by spendlove 02 Sep 2018

This one is to stop us getting old!

pennyhal2 by pennyhal2 02 Sep 2018

Never too old! Find a rescue group for the breed you'd like and see if they have any "older" dogs available.

by mops Moderator 02 Sep 2018

Sweet! I remember you wrote about Meg at 7 weeks: food goes in one end and appears at the kitchen floor a little later. Apart from that, I hope (s)he will be a bundle of joy!

I remember that so well. We had Meg for 13 years and she will be a hard act to follow!

by dragonflyer 02 Sep 2018 sweet! Have you picked out a name yet?
