These Collie Calendars present a picture of a breed with true balance, each part being in harmonious proportion to every other part and to the whole. Collies are considered one of the most beautiful breeds because of their elegant appearance. Sometimes referred to as the Scottish Collie, the Collie is of Scottish heritage. They come in two coat varieties, Smooth Coated Collies and the Rough Coated Collie with the only difference being the length of their coat. Rough coats will occasionally produce smooth coats in their offspring. The Smooth Coated Collie looks like it has a crew cut. Rough Coated Collies have always been more popular than the smooth, and the personalities slightly differ in snappiness, which may be why the Rough is so much more popular. Collies are medium sized dogs with either long fluffy fur, or short smooth fur. They have long faces and elegant bodies. They come in colors of sable and white, tricolor, blue merle and white. Their personality gives way to their popularity, as they are very gentle, loving, affectionate and friendly. Much like the TV collie named "Lassie", Collies will strive to be with their families and endure difficult hardships to remain loyal to their owners. Forever immortalized by "Lassie" (who was actually a lad!), they are a true family dog that enjoys human companionship. Collie Calendars.
