  3. Personally id never touch feck all with collie in it again....my youngster never switches off/relaxes its a f***ing nightmare,paranoid as hell and very temperamental...beddy cross all the way next time.I suppose if you know the collie used its a different matter....either way id rather go without a dog at all ...

    Can't understand anyone crabbing man,dog or book....nowhere does he assume expert status or imply the dog was a world beater.It was nothing more than the tale of a man and his dog.Never saw the dog run or met the man ,but that's irrelevant...it is what it is...a book...to be read and enjoyed as such.Dont get why a man/dog gets pulled down ,can only assume it's jealousy....no matter what he put the miles ,time and graft into both dog and book and should be congratulated on it.By the way I'm not one of JDs superfans,I own several of his books and I've said before on here ,some of the content put us in a bad light...
