Counting Heads

I feel terrible that I haven’t blogged in many days. I have some pretty good excuses (e.g., my day job’s overwhelming, I’ve been working on a new version of the SheltieRescueMall web store, the 2008 ASSA National Sheltie Specialty is coming up fast, blah, blah, blah), but so what…

I thought it might be fun to show everybody a video that we took late in 2007 – of Tommy (our blind and deaf white Sheltie) and Jackson (a Corgi we rescued) playing. They played very nicely with each other, and Jackson figured out how to play with Tommy so he didn’t get scared or [...]

Sleep Gently Sweet Polly

We miss you more than there are words to describe. I needed you to be in your crate at meal time to bark at me to remind me that I hadn’t given you your breakfast or dinner yet.  I need you to be on the ottoman next to the bed each night.  I need [...]
