OK, I’m sitting at my desk and just happen to have my camera sitting near me. That’s rare enough that I should take advantage of it and show you what some of the new (or new-ish) kids look like.
Here’s a head shot of Sage, that poor girl whom we weren’t sure whether she’d last the first night she was with us. Well, she’s doing pretty well, I’m pleased to say. She loves wearing her coat, which keeps her warm, but she’s a sloppy drinker (which is why her ruff looks straggly).
And here’s a shot of new boy Max. It seems very difficult to me to take a usable photo of a black (in this case, bi-black) dog. Some people can do it, but I’m not one of them. Forgive the Photoshopping and consequent distortion of his coloring, but that’s the best I could do in order to make him actually visible!
And here’s a picture of Maggie, who is (as you can see) significantly overweight. But she’s very sweet, although a little shy about asking for attention, and she snores very cutely when she’s curled up in her little bed at night.
Some time back, we believed that Stevie Nicks, a lovely (but Collie-sized) Sheltie we placed a couple of years ago, was coming back to us. For a while, it looked like that wouldn’t happen, but we got the bad news a couple of days ago when our very own Marie Lister called us to say that she’d just seen Stevie listed on KSL.com! Barbara immediately called to remind Stevie’s dad that the adoption contract required that Stevie be returned to Sheltie Rescue of Utah, which he was delighted to do…along with her terrier “sister”, Jill, because he wanted them to be placed together into a new home. Well, they arrived today. Stevie is as sweet and smiley as always, if a bit more mature, and 2-year-old Jill is, well, a terrier of some sort and a real sweetheart.
