Collie in Disguise

I frequently get asked what kind of dog Isa is. As far as I can guess, she seems to be Golden Retriever and Border Collie? Whatever kind of herding breed she is, she is basically a collie with gold-colored hair. She doesn't have any retriever instincts- it took some effort to teach her to fetch, and she *hates* getting her feet wet. (Although apparently most collies like water as much as retrievers do.)

We started herding sheep about two months ago, and so far she's apparently doing everything right (as far as I know. bringing me the sheep without biting them anyway...)
