Last weekend, we became the rescuers and fosters of five puppy mill dogs! I’ll blog about that whole deal separately, but this post addresses the almost-instant sadness that derived from one of these rescues.
A small tri-color (almost bi-black, but she had small amounts of sable around her muzzle) Sheltie girl came to us in obviously [...]

This is little Evie letting Sly know to back off of her Valentine’s Day bandanna. Believe it or not Evie is as sweet as they come, a real little Mama’s girl who I adore. But…don’t mess with her! – Barbara
