2Stroke-What Kind Of Collie Am I?
#1
Hi all, my name is 2Stroke/soxxi and I'm a unlike collie!
I have an extremely long tail, my coat isn't as long as a border collie but flat and smooth also. My nose is very long and pointed also! My owners and Aunty think I'm border collie cross Argyll collie!
Help please!

Its very hard to tell from your picture but bear in mind border collies come in all different sizes, shapes andcoat lengths. Just look at the 2 in my signature. Zeus is a large rough coated blue merle. Kelly is a small smooth coated black and white. (see not all borders have long coats). Something about the shape of your head in the 3rd picture reminds me of a labrador though

Never heard of an Argyll Collie. Looks like a smooth coated Border Collie to me. This is my Teagan, ISDS registered and KC registered on the Border Collie breed register, she's a smooth coated Border Collie.

I tried to look Argyll Collie up but I couldn't find anything about them anywhere, I'm very interested now.

I would assume that Cumulous here is misspelling a dog's breed. I have even seen BC owners call their dogs Boarder Collies, so it's not too surprising. Or Argyll could refer to a particular line of working dogs, I'm doing research on that right now.
EDIT: 'we looked up the breeder of his dog, Julie Metz, Argyll Collies, and bought our first male from her.' Quoted from Braeton Collies' History page.
'His dam was line-bred on the Argyll family of collies.' Quoted from Rainforest Collies' Past page.
Apparently Argyll Collies were a line of show-bred Rough Collies. How I love the internets.
