Avon is very handsome and appears to be lots of fun! Kisses to his little freckled nose! (By the way, I have freckles and my grandmother always told me they were marks left by angels kissse!)

I'm certain Avon is a lovely dog and friend, but this picture reminds me of Jack Nicholson in the Shining....possessed! I'm sorry Avon had a hurt paw, and hope he has sent those demons packing.

Whoops, this is the Jack Nicholson pic. The other was his Cary Grant suave and cool and collected affect.

Should I give up? I hope three time is the charm..

Strays are irreplacable. Some of the best dogs I've ever had were just that, sometimes the best things in life just happen along. He's obviously a Beautiful Border mix, great picture this one!

awww- she looks just like the border collie in "Snow Dogs" called 'Nana'

Avon looks like a great dog! - and you must get plenty of exercise into the bargain. Our neighbour used to breed Border collies and would train 8 of them at a time. They are great, very intelligent dogs.

Gorgeous dog - and I'll bet he's as smart as a whip.

What a wonderful dog! I would give nearly anything to have a border collie. I love all the pictures, as well.

Avon is one handsome boy! I love the wet dog photo! He looks like he has a great life full of fun and love!! What a beauty......

Border Collies rule!!! I have two, both rescues. Wouldn't take anything for them. Absolutely gorgeous! If they let us give biscuits for the adult dogs not just the puppies I would give him eleven.

what a cutiepie! I hope his little paw is ok!

I couldnt pick a favorite! Such decisions to make in the morning! Avon you look like a ton of fun, and have more beauty than I can handle. Kisses to you Avon!

Avon is adorable and he does remind me of Nana from snow dogs.

Thanks for all you comments. Of course there is a little of this and that in his background as well as border collie, or at least I assume so given the spots :) The extensive bandages are for a fairly minor cut on his paw pad but it wasn't healing and we had to bandage over the 'knee' to get it to stay on given how active he is ;)

I see what you mean about the water, the mud and the snow. Avon is really in his element with these. He is a handsome dog and so full of life. Thank you for rescuing him. Hugs and kisses.

p.s. Avon is often taken to be a girl's name in the US, but he was named in the UK after a male character in the sci fi show 'Balke's 7' :) Fortunately he Avon is secure in his masculinity and doesn't mind getting called 'she' a lot ;)

absolutely beautiful dog and very intelligent!!! I love the wet pictures too, lots of kisses

Oh, Avon looks like my Calvin...he was my constant companion when I was in high school. While they take lots of attention and need lots of exercise, border collies are the most amazing dogs. Enjoy the bathtub Avon!! You are so handsome, even covered in mud

Sweet faced beauty like my late Max. My kids called him "big daddy pimpin" because he had all the females in our neighborhood ( 2 and 4 legged absolutely crazy about him.)

Jul 13, 2007 kukie
Hi Avon, you are a super cute doggie, I love your colors!
Belly rubs for you
Jul 13, 2007 pjamas10
aww what a pretty dog! love the fluffy ears!
Jul 13, 2007 sylvanbliss
What a long way you've come, Avon!

I picked this picture because of the toothy smile and look of complete trust. As if to say, "I hurt my leg but you took care of it for me and I know that everything is going to be just fine." Tub, snow or mud, it matters not....too funny! I didn't know Border Collies were that interested in water...have fun, Avon!

What a beautiful dog.

Avon is so cute! Love his bathtub bed!

He's gorgeous!

Border Collies - the best - love them - I did have a mix once but everyone thought she was such a beautiful border collie there was no thing as looking like a mix as far as she was concerned.
they are smart and full of vigor. He has led quite a life starting in Scotland and moving across the big pond. Give him a cookie for me
Because he is a border he deserves 15 biscuits
Jul 13, 2007 mo
Aw, what a sweetie! That's fantastic that he loves baths... normally you have to wrestle with them(even though they like swimming) and I wouldn't want to fight a determined collie. Sounds like a real love, I hope you enjoy him for many, many years to come!
Jul 13, 2007 mtframsey
Some of my most special friends are from Scotland (human and animal alike). Aye, you have a fine Lad there!
Jul 13, 2007 JaxMom I know it took alot for that beautiful boy not to grab this bisquit so I know he is very well trained. You have done a great job with him, it's obvious. He has such joy in his eyes and such spirit around him. Avon, you are a handsome boy and you keep on herding those that need it. No matter what they are. Hugs and kisses.

Jul 13, 2007 Woofins
Phwoar!!! what a good looking boy you are. I'd have puppies with you any day - Love Maesy the spaniel! A whole box of biscuits to you my man!!!
Jul 13, 2007 sandi
What a handsome lad Avon is! :P I chose this pic because I had a cockapoo who love to lay in the bath tub also and adored water in all forms. Avon sounds like a wonderful fun loing dog
Jul 13, 2007 sandi
:oops: that is supposed to be Avon looks like a wonderful fun loving dog, not loing :)
Jul 13, 2007 ckporter73
Well Mr. Avon, if you love mud as much as your mum say's you do, it is a good thing you love the bath tub too!! What a wonderfully happy little pup you are. Many kisses on your freckled nose from San Diego.
Jul 14, 2007 Lizsterr
Cute!!! I love the face in this pic! I hope his paw is all better. Kisses and belly rubs!
Jul 14, 2007 laurenluvsdogs

Avon looks so clever and handsome. Bit of a traveller - all the way from Scotland! I see some Spaniel in him - no wonder he likes water and bathtubs! Grat pics.
Jul 14, 2007 iamme
Aww!!! He's got a booboo! I hope it's all better, but I love the smile!!! Best to you and him for a happy life together!
Jul 15, 2007 BTLabs
Avon is such a good boy to leave his bandage on! We tried a sock on our Lab tonight after treating a hot spot on his foot but even with tape around the top it came off! I just love the intelligent look on his face. It's like he might say something at any moment!
