Today’s chuckle

This has absolutely nothing to do with dogs (well, except for the fact that dog people are all a little crazy), but a doggy friend of mine sent it to me.

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director how do you determine whether or not a patient should be [...]

Hiking With Shelties

One thing I really love is hiking in the Wasatch Mountains (or just about anywhere there are mountains). When I have a Sheltie who is reliable, healthy, and fit, I like to take him or her with me. I love taking my Shelties up into the mountains in the winter when there’s plenty of snow [...]

Simone Continues to Improve

I stay up later than Barbara does most nights, because I just don’t like going to sleep at 10:00 or 10:30. Instead, I like to watch another movie or read or something. For the last several weeks, when I’ve not been traveling, I’ve been making a point of keeping Simone downstairs with me when Barbara [...]

Beautiful Evie Models Her Mom’s Gift

[photopress:Evie_gives_Aunt_Barbara_a_workout__Small_.JPG,thumb,pp_image]

Evie helping Aunt Barbara get in some much needed aerobic workouts!

When Evie first arrived here she would never have played tug with anyone.

When Evie came to us she was so frightened and shy she wouldn’t go outside without me and certainly wouldn’t stay outside if I didn’t stay too. Her previous family said she [...]

Upgrade Blog Software

I don’t think anybody will notice, but I upgraded the software that runs this blog from WordPress 2.2.2 to WordPress 2.3.2. There aren’t any functionality changes that are known to me that would affect SheltieTales, so that wasn’t why I upgraded. The new version is primarily a security release.

Unfortunately, for reasons that completely escape me, [...]

Happy New Year to Sheltie Rescue

Last night, the Utah Shetland Sheepdog Association (USSA), held its annual holiday party. For a variety of reasons, this year’s party was held after Christmas instead of before it. To take advantage of the fact that four of Sheltie Rescue of Utah’s board members would be at the party, Barbara scheduled a short SRU board [...]

My Yummy Quarter Cup of Coffee this Morning

[photopress:Jackson___Evie_the_usual_suspects__Small_.JPG,thumb,pp_image] My day starts with the whines of either Evie or Jackson. They sleep in our bedroom every night but they’re crated, otherwise they’d be dancing all over us and the bed all night long. I need my sleep. I slide out of our waterbed careful not to step on Big Shelby [...]

Busy Christmas Day

Barbara and I had a very enjoyable, but busy, Christmas day. While everybody else was chowing down on turkey and fixin’s (or perhaps turkey-flavored kibble), we were doing the Sheltie Rescue thing.

First, we went over to Cottonwood Animal Hospital to retrieve a recently-rescued Collie who’d been staying there for a few days being neutered and [...]

Christmas Puppies?

It’s that time of year again – in fact, it started several weeks ago: Christmas, the largest of the gift-giving events in the western world. Ah, the love, the joy, the sharing…the gifts!

Unfortunately, far too many people think that it’s OK to surprise their kids, their spouses, or others with a brand new, cute-as-a-button, adorable [...]
