Bella and the Boys

I don’t have a photo of this event, but everyone tells me to post the story of how Apache’s brother Sarge also from Sheltie Rescue of Utah, herded Bella back to us when she ran away. To start, I had a bad experience when Bella was a puppy getting off leash. I had [...]

Bella and Apache

I finally downloaded photos from my camera so I can now show pictures in this post.  Sorry it’s taken me so long, like most people I snap away with my digital camera never to really look at the photos for several months or years.  I did discover some happy dogs when I did finally look [...]

Ahhh…the sweet fragrance of a…wet dog?

When you’ve got 10 or 12 or 20 dogs in the house, smells are unavoidable. And not all of them are as lovely as “wet dog”, either We get dogs who are incompletely (or simply not) house-trained, dogs who are old and have incomplete control of some bodily functions, and dogs who get [...]

Shelties I Have Known: Annie

We’ve had two Annies in our lives. One, about which I will write another time, was ours. She was amazing and I look forward to telling her story.

This, though, is the story of a rescue named Annie.

We were contacted by a person in St. George, UT, who said that he had just taken a Sheltie [...]

Rescue Fatigue

Our good friend Cynthia Heyman (a/k/a Cynthia Blue) is taking a break from Collie Rescue, as I just learned in this post from her blog, Tip-Tail. For those of you who don’t know, Cynthia is Collie Rescue of Utah. Barbara is on her board of directors and helped Cynthia formalize her Collie rescue work (e.g., [...]

Gone At The End

Barbara told me when we talked today that Ginger’s reached the end. And I’m still in Australia. That sucks.

They were at the vet’s a couple of days ago and Dr Cox (at Cottonwood Animal Hospital) opined that Ginger might have at most a few months left. There’s no one thing that’s identified as being the [...]

Recent fundraising activities

If you’ve read the last few postings in this blog, you’ll know that one of the major consumers of my time, and Barbara’s, was the 2008 ASSA National that happened just a couple of weeks ago. We’ve finished doing the numbers from that event and are not unhappy…not a bit. National Sheltie rescue made about [...]

Down (under) and out

Greetings from Sydney, Australia! in a previous post, I said that I was in Dublin, Ireland, and was on my way to Australia to scuba dive and then for two weeks of technical meetings. Well, I returned safe and sound from diving – which, by the way, was absolutely incredible! We spent about half of [...]

Take a short breather

I must humbly apologize for the lack of contribution to the blog. Spring has sprung and between spring grooming and yard, critter care, I don’t have time to do anything it seems! This is a breather moment for me and really just a big excuse/avoidance in regards to a rather messy house. Like [...]

Ginger

About a week ago, this woman called Julene (one of SRU’s board members) about a Sheltie that she wanted to relinquish. Turns out that this woman’s mother really owned the Sheltie, whose name is Ginger, but had become unable to care for her. From the information we got, it would seem that the owner had [...]
