They're absolutely adorable!

The garden looks lovely, they must be having the time of their lives

Please give them all an ear tickle for me thanks for posting the pix. What are their names?

Blue merle collie = Ruben (after Ruben Xaus, bike racer)
BW collie = Rossi (after Rossi, bike racer and god)
German shepherd = Keira - that was her name when we rescued her
Staffie = Frankie (after Frankie Chili, bike racer)

Notice a theme here?

I'm so jealous you have a blue merle - they are such beautiful dogs! I can't wait until we buy a house and I can get one - got a few years to wait for that though

As he's a collie he is a handful. Also his eyes are not blue - but I don't care as they are prone to problems if they are. There are a few blue merle breeders across NZ, of collies and a couple of other breeds too. It's all to do with a recessive gene, apparently in the dogs, not the breeders

How lovely!! They could nearly be twins Very dark black GSDs are not that common - I haven;t really seen another over here. Ours was a rescue dog in the UK and we brought her here.

Just fab, looks a great troop to keep you busy...

Our boy is finding it real hard to settle in as you can probably tell Lord of the manor springs to mind....

If I ever get there and any of your dogs need a place to stay while you're on holiday I'd gladly look after them! I miss my dogs so much
