I saw a fat collie today. It was awesome. Lassie was a rough collie I think. Jaws tells me that Lassie was actually a female, and I figure this is because they didn't want to show dog balls on TV. I also remember being told that in the old black and white films they used to slather little Timmy's face in vanilla ice cream so the dog would lick him.
Collies are very intelligent dogs and easy to train. They are so easy to train there are now ABC Dog Shows. The "ABC" standing for "Anything But Collies".
I did zero research for this article.
