Collie - Rough and Smooth Description
  The Collie is a lovely, active, and agile, long-coated sheepdog. Its lean, blunted, wedge-shaped head gives an impression of lightness. Its face is chiseled and the top of its head is flat. The muzzle is long, smooth, well-rounded, and blunt, tapering to a black nose. Its ears are 3/4 erect with the tips folding foward and its eyes are dark and almond-shaped with the exception of the blue merles, in which the eyes are blue or merle. Its body is slightly longer than it is tall, trim, but muscular. Its chest is fairly wide and strong. Its tailbone hangs down to the dog's hocks. The Rough Coat variety has an abundant double coat that forms a mane around the neck and chest. To look its best, it needs regular weekly grooming. The Smooth variety has a one-inch coat that needs very little grooming. The hair on the head and legs is short and smooth on both varieties.
