    Origin:
    The Bearded Collie, affectionately called the Beardie, was developed in Scotland as a herding dog. It was developed as an independent worker, able to make decisions concerning the welfare and safety of its charges without depending on the shepherd who might be miles away. It is also one of England's oldest breeds. The Bearded Collie is also known as the Highland Collie or the Mountain Collie.

    Choosing the Best Location for your Cat's Litter Box

    Make sure your cat's litter box is the single most irresistible repository for his or her deposits. You know that which litter box you choose, what you fill it with, and how you keep it clean are important to your cat. But did you know litter box location is also a big issue for many cats? Like us, most cats prefer someplace private for their toilet. Anyplace where there's a lot of noise and people coming and going is not appreciated.

    Caracal
    Signature member
    by Caracal
    The sand cat is my favourite animal. This animal is not only cute and fluffy but it is a very intelligent animal as well. There ears are extremely good at detecting movement, as the furry little creature hunts at night.
    The sand cat will excavate a den with its bare paw. The creature sweats as it looks at its new den, as if saying I am one with the paw.

    It then takes pride and sits in its den until dusk. When night time comes it goes out in search of its favouri...

    by David

    Origin One of the earliest tales of this breed is from 943 A.D. when Hywel Dda tells of a black sheepdog taking the sheep out to the field in the morning and returning with them in the evening. The name "Border" Collie originally comes from the sheepdog's home in the border countries of Scotland and England. The original Border Collies were rough on the livestock and difficult to control. The breed needed tempering, and it received it in the form of a cross when Adam Tefler set about t...
