They were some of the Tucson dogs we brought up with us. Ginger died in 2015 from anal cancer. I got her when she was 3 months old from the Humane Society in Tucson and we rescued Spot from a home where he was chained up. Border collies should never be chained because they are a working dog and it is very cruel. He was a good boy too. He was 13 and we lost him in February of 2020. He and Ginger were best of friends!! He was very smart!! I miss him. He was 13.
