Kimbo had organised the whole affair in secret.
Having landed at Toulouse airport, he drove to the breeders home, then presented me with the above on arrival here yesterday afternoon.
Was I surprised? I should say I was!
Billy was born on December 19th (I think), and, as you can see, is that greatest breed of dog; a Border Collie. I've had more dealings with Border Collies than any other breed, and I adore them.
I've already tried him with "Away" and "Come by", but he still has a little to learn.
