(This is the last one for today. You might be able to discern that I’m going through a bunch of old email containing things I’d intended to post but never got around to doing it. This one is also from the RecycledShelties Yahoo group. The author is unknown.)
Now that I’m home, bathed, settled and fed,

Considering a pet from rescue? Note to adopters
