The Guinea Pig Becomes A Puppy

Yesterday, one day earlier than expected due to the adverse weather conditions, we collected the newest member of our family. His name is Merlyn and he is a Blue Merle Border Collie. He comes from the same breeder as our other Border Collie Chia.

I first saw him when he was three weeks old and he looked like this...........

He looked so much like a guinea pig I wondered if he would turn into a proper Collie. But he has and he's so cute.

Chia doesn't think much of him but I'm sure as he grows she will get used to him. He's so small at the moment that I'm sure she is still running with the guinea pig theory!

Oh, Merlyn is adorable, I hope I get to meet him one day.

Oh boy is Merlyn (love the name btw) ever cute. Can't wait to meet him and I'm sure Chia will get used to him real fast.
Lots of Love

Oh wow,
He is a darling and I can really hear him asking for a cuddle. You've been so patient waiting for him and now you have the reward of undying love.

You know, of course that we too are owned by a collie so i know how that feels :>) They are the best.

It may take a bit of time but I'm sure that Merlyn and Chia will become great friends.
