Minor Updates

I have just a few minutes to spare right now, so I thought I’d muse a little bit.

Dali’s still here with us. The person who was going to come visit her found her charming, but hadn’t filled out an adoption application yet, so we couldn’t start any official paperwork. They still haven’t filled out the [...]

Being Thankful on Thanksgiving

Today is USA Thanksgiving Day. I don’t have the cycles tonight to get all philosophical, so this’ll be brief.

First, I’m really thankful that I’m surrounded by Shelties and by Sheltie-loving people — especially Barbara, who is the best thing that ever happened to me!

Second, I’m very thankful for all of you wonderful folk who read [...]

Might Have an Adopting Dad!

We have a very nice university professor interested in adopting our girls, Daisy and Ginger! They both just had dentals and blood panels on Friday of last week. Daisy’s total bilirubin was above normal…I have to try to find out what that means for her future care. Joe, their potential adopter, will [...]

Stevie Nicks is Making a Comeback!

It seems as though the typical rescue person has little or no empathy for those who can’t keep their animals. But being in rescue, at least for me, has changed that. I don’t see how I can cherish the Sheltie who needs help and not have similar feelings for those whose hearts are [...]

Please, Sir, May I Have Some More?

I remain apologetic for the long gaps in blog posts, but life has taken on a, well, life of its own. My day job has gotten busier (short term, I hope) and Barbara has been having extremely severe computer problems, but we’re moving back towards "normal’ (whatever that is).

Anyway, I’m in jolly old England this [...]

Another Newbie

I’m still traveling, so this will be very short.

Barbara told me that she got a call about a Sheltie and two Collies that had been left in a "lean-to" behind a house up in Heber (a town up in the high country behind the Wasatch Mountains in Utah). The people had apparently moved out of [...]

Confidential Note to Blog-Spammers

I have a very good spam filter on this blog. In the two years the blog has been alive, only a single spam message has ever gotten through (and only a handful of non-spam messages have been filtered out). I review every message that the filter catches and approve the very few that are genuine [...]

Sage: Ultra-short

Barbara mentioned tonight when we talked (I’m in California on a business trip) that Sage has been able to take herself out into the yard to go potty and to walk herself back into the house…although she sometimes gets confused about how to get onto the ramp leading up the two steps into the house.
