Life at Boulderwood:
Burtee, our Border Collie

What is black and white, has no tail, and is the king of 80 pasture and forest filled acres of land??
There is no doubt that Boulderwood wouldn't be the same without our miracle Border Collie.

When he was just a young pup he was run over by a car but was nursed back to health by mama Murko and papa Jim.  Now, at 5 years old, he welcomes every visitor with boisterous barks and a toothy smile (really!), enjoys hearty homemade turkey and sweet potato dog food, loves a good staring contest and, yes, boasts his own boulder!
There is one thing that Burtee might be longing for though.....sheep.  Sorry, Burt. As long as the coyotes are wandering the Berkshires, herding the humans and the chickens will have to suffice.
