Here's Caitlin MacLennan, a female (rough) collie G.E.L.F., standing on a beach against a rock (you can see a wave hitting the beach in the background). I chose to draw her using only a mechanical pencil because I don't have the proper colored pencils to have drawn her in full color. Caitlin is 5 ft 6 in, about 115 lbs or thereabouts, she's a 25 year-old Gen-1 G.E.L.F., has the typical fur coloration and pattern of a sable-colored rough collie, and a similar personality and temperament.

Enjoy this bitta fluff from Scotland. :D

I drew this using a 0.5 mm mechanical pencil with HB lead, various blending and shading tools, on Georgia-Pacific's "Everyday Copy & Print" paper. Text added with Micro$oft Paint.

I can't say no to a collie and I love the ear tufts.

I had you in mind when I drew Caitlin since I know you love rough collies. ;)

Thanks. I wanted a rough collie since I was five but my parents said they were took much work grooming so I never got one (Blame watching Lassie as a kid). As a adult I was able to get myself a border collie.

My dad's brother and sister-in-law had a rough collie when I was growing up. I don't think they had any more of a problem with grooming than I had years later with my 3/4 wolf and then with my Malamute. With my 3/4 wolf, I quickly discovered that wolf hair gets everywhere--I wouldn't doubt that somewhere in my house are still traces of it. Same for my Mal--when she blew her undercoat twice a year, it becomes a part of your diet, whether you want it to or not. I raked so much hair off of both during those times that I could have had somebody knit a sweater or two out of it. No joke. I'll tell ya, a 170-lb giant Alaskan Malamute has a LOT of hair.
