This is my collie, Blaze and one of his best friends, Mittens. Mittens was raised by my previous collie, who passed away, so I think he just equated collies with safety. Blaze is also frequently claimed by my other tuxedo male Tux, who loves Blaze, but barely tolerates us. Blaze has a very sweet personality, and doesn't understand why anyone wouldn't like him. My mainecoon Coon doesn't like dogs, he tolerates their existence so long as they leave him alone. When Blaze was a pup he ended up getting too close and attacked by Coon, and is now unfortunately mostly blind in one eye. He gives Coon a wide berth most of the time now.
