When you are thinking about buying a Border Collie, educate yourself about the pros and cons of the Border Collie breed, and what is required of you to have a successful life with the pup you purchase. Ask yourself what is the function, that you’re wishing your Border Collie to fulfill.

Actually, because of their nature, they’re not suited to many human individuals. Be aware that they can be the dog from heaven or hades. Ask the br ..read more

A Poem by Dr. Karen B. Thompson 1991 Imprisoned is the mind that searches not, encompassing preconceived prejudices and opinions. Above and beyond it is intangibly sought never to be totally reached but ever a continuation. The door it is locked, I seek the key there is fear, despair and anger yes!

I know and feel it’s presence about, it is enclosed awaiting within our temple! Dr. Karen B. Thompson 1991 ..read more

Some of my saddest m ..read more

There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept from fear and apprehension. One of these days is yesterday, with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday. We cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is beyond recall. The other day we should not worry about is tomorrow, with its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promises, and perhaps its poor performance. Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control ..read more
