    Bit of a wild guess, but I think your dog looked liked a working bearded collie, from back before they became fluffy show dogs and were basically just a variation on the border collies.

    I know that I'm going to be a wreck when it's time for my border collie, Grace, to move on. She's eight years old now. The time we have with them, like anything of real value in our fleeting lives, rushes by.

      to a bearded - I always told folks that was the closest match that you could easily find. Her ears articulated and she had a longer snout. I think, as I mentioned somewhere here, that she was a throw-back to the Catalan dogs - probably brought by the Spanish when they brought over the Churro sheep (the Navajo still tend those sheep). her is a link to a Catalan.

      my best to you and Grace - give her a hug for me and Par.
