What breed are you?
100% Border Collie
How old are you?
Four years old last October
What is your full name?
Do you have any nicknames?
Chancy, Buddy, Dude
Where do you sleep?
Where ever I want, the couches all have washable blankets on them. My favorite place is right in front of the door on the landing. I can nap there and no one can sneak off without me.
What is your favorite thing to do?
PLAY BALL! I love to herd the ball. I do not play fetch..lets get that straight right now. I HERD! I head out and circle around and hide behind a tree and wait for the ball to be thrown, I intercept the ball and bring it back.
What is something unusual or interesting about you?
I do not like rawhide chews and I take them and hide them in the couch, under pillows. If I can get by with it I sneak them outside and bury them so they are gone once and for all.
Who is your best friend?
Far Guy and Miney ( my sisters dog)
Did you go to obedience school?
Yes, but only because Far Side insisted. She even got us a personal trainer named Megan, I did not like Megan..so I closed my eyes and pretended she didn't exist. Far Guy didn't like Megan very much either...because she made him practice stuff with me. Far Guy and I like to make our own rules.
Can you do any tricks?
I can sit, lay, stay, shake, play dead, and heel off lead. I know what "safe" means, a verbal command to sit my butt down next to Far Guys leg. I have a large vocabulary, I listen to everything that is said. I know when they are going someplace without me, and I pout. I know the difference between the pick up and the car. I will track and find Far Guy, but not Far Side...she makes me listen and obey...I don't care if she is on her own in the woods, she will eventually figure it out. Far Guy..now that's another story..us guys got to stick together.
Note from Far Side:
Anyone that is thinking about getting a Border Collie, should spend some time with someone that has one. They need jobs. I don't say that lightly either, they are happiest working. If they are not mentally and physically challenged everyday..they can be troublemakers. Chance is not a high maintenance dog, but he still requires 20 minutes of heavy ball play outdoors several times a day:)
