Border Collies are the best and smartest breed of dogs in the world, rivalled only by poodles. They are herding dogs originating fron England, and typically herd sheep and cattle. Extremely energetic, agile, and athletic, they excel at canine sports such as flyball and agility.
Border Collies are very, very cute. If not cute, then attractive. If not attractive, then you're crazy. They're furry, most often black-and-white, but occasionally liver-and-white or lemon-and-white.
