Mele, Ohana and Keike

mele_keike_ohana_august_20_2018psHawaiian names are so appropriate for these darling, sweet, beautiful pups!
Meet Mele, Ohana and Keike.  These sisters were born approximately July 1, 2018.  We are close on the birth date because they were just 7 weeks when they came into our program.ohana_august_20_2018 (2)ps

Mele is all black.
Ohana is black and white.
Keike is black and white with white on her face.
Isn’t it nice that they are easy to tell apart?
Since I took the photos I surely am glad for that!
I take all these photos, get home, download them from my camera and sometimes keike_august_20_2018 (5)psI can’t tell who is who!

These photos were taken just less then a month ago so the pups are a bit bigger but they still look the same.

From looks and behavior we are guessing they are Border Collies or Border Collie mixes.

If you are thinking of adding a border collie to your life, it’s worth doing some research.
This is a great breed, I have one, but they can be such a handful if you are not prepared.mele_august_20_2018 (1)ps
I absolutly adore my border collie – but, we compete in agility and rally and freestyle and do trick training and she is a TDI dog so we are visiting the cancer ward in the hospital every week.  Border Collies need people who will stimulate them mentally, ie, train, and have access to lots of exercise which is usually directed – as in agility, herding and such.
In my experience, border collies are not ideal living with small children because children don’t want to be herded about and don’t like being nipped when the border collie is trying to move them.  It’s a border collie thing.  It’s not that they don’t like children, just that they can’t be herding the little munchkins about and let’s face it, generations over so much time to produce a dog that can herd sheep is going to herd.
