I'm a simple man, no fancy stuff for me, I like my mates to be down to earth, honest, loyal and trusting, not like those 'orrible cat things.
Anyway, my favourite dog is a border collie, just like this one:
I think I love these so much as I used to have one as a kid then my mum and I moved to a flat (apartment for the Americans out there ) when I was 10 and my mum didn't tell me we couldn't take Ben. I didn't realise for a couple of hours on the day of the move, and didn't speak to my mum for 3 weeks in protest once I did eventually realise. He was a good mate, I'd tie his lead to my bike and ride around our estate (yes, as in Teenage Dad).
I miss him and work commitments mean it would be unfair to have a dog right now in my life and they'd be lonely all day by themselves.
