You should write a book. I loved all the info. I'd love to hear more about our dogs whenever you want to post. I can't find much new and exciting on the web. Or, maybe everyone doesn't want to hear about them? Could you recommend some good reading? I didn't know about the white collar. My big boy is light so the white just mixes in. My baby does have the white collar. She started out black but it slowly turning a light gold. She has white feet, white blaze, and a little white tip on her tail. She is extremeley fiesty. She walked up the basement stairs today - something her big brother has neverdone.
