Just want to tell you about this amazing dog. Some of you may remember when I wrote about Midge the Border Collie owned by Paul. I met them once on a Walking Forum meet up in Derbyshire on a camping weekend, in September 2011. Read about it here. Walking Stanage Edge.
I wrote this about him.........
Mitch the border collie came along with his owner Paul, (forum name mananddog), isn't he adorable. Midge was a star, everyone loved him. He came from a Rescue at a young age, and had been living in a totally unsuitable home with a small garden. He was never taken out for walks, so he was very nervous. This breed of dog has boundless energy, superior intelligence and needs to work, unfortumately some people do not understand this and think it's ok to heep them as a pet. Paul managed to build up his confidence, and train him to his own commands, similar to what a sheep dog would learn. It was a joy to watch the two of them work in perfect harmony, Midge desperate to please his master and enjoying every minute of it.
Paul has a blog all about his travels with Midge, you can read about his other long walks if you like. Travels with Midge. He has started another blog about this trip, but hasn't been able to put much detail on it just yet. I shall be looking forward to reading it when it is completed. Paul and Midge Blind Faith.
I think this is pretty amazing, I love doggy stories. Midge is a dog in a million, ten million in fact. As Paul says, he is the best dog in the world.
