"This is Billie the Border Collie. She is our patient, loving, five-year-old Border Collie. We named her after the jazz singer Billie Holiday. Rare for a Border Collie, she is a city dog. Every morning, her dad takes her for a 10-mile run down by the river. She loves hanging out down by the sandbar and fetching sticks in the river in the summer, and rolling around in the snow in the winter. She was very well socialized when she was a puppy, and is a wonderful girl! Everyone in her family, including her five brothers and sisters love her very much!"
