The Border Collie is a
herding dog breed developed in the Anglo-Scottish border
region for herding livestock, especially sheep. It is the
most widespread of the collie breeds.
In 1915, James Reid, Secretary of the International Sheep Dog Society (ISDS) in the United Kingdom first used the term "Border Collie" to distinguish those dogs registered by the ISDS from the Kennel Club's Collie (or Scotch Collie, including the Rough Collie and Smooth Collie) which originally came from the same working stock but had developed a different, standardized appearance following introduction to the show ring in 1860 and mixture with other breeds.
Here at the Highland Games,
they kept everyone's attention as they stealthily herded
the sheep and the ducks with such grace and precision,
that the ducks never once flapped their wings, but simply
walked away from these intelligent and gentle dogs. You
could here everyone say under their breath, "I Want One!"
