If this is the book that the movie "Babe" was based upon, that probably deserves mention in this article. Also, is the dog a border collie (as in that movie) or a regular collie (a la Lassie)? I would make both of these corrections myself, but I'm not familiar with this book and don't want to assume too much. --mwalimu 20:36, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

I don't think Fly is described beyond "collie" in the book, but I just flipped through it and from the illustrations she is clearly a border collie. Actually, I'm not sure if Lassie-type collies come in black and white, or if they're even used for herding sheep... they look rather big and fluffy for that! -- KDelany 00:34, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
I just checked the Rough Collie information in Hall, Derek. The Ulimate Guide to Dog Breeds. Edison, NJ: Chartwell Books, 2002, p. 285.
"Colours are sable-and-white, tricolour, or blue merle". I believe sable is brown, in this context. -- KDelany 00:39, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
I've seen Rough collies that were mostly black and white, but I think we're splitting hairs here. The point is, if we're pretty sure she's a border collie, let's go ahead and say so in the article. --mwalimu 04:13, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
