Origin of Collie Dog Breed

Someone asked me where the name for the Collie dog breed comes from. After a little research it seems that the most likely origin is from the fact that they were Scottish sheep dogs, and the word collie may be derived from the work coaley referring to the black faced sheep common in Scotland.

Do you have any interesting Collie stories?
