WARNING re: Don’t Give Dogs Children’s Stuffed Toys

I got the following from the national Sheltie rescue mailing list. I didn’t find anything on snopes to refute it, so perhaps it’s for real.

Last night at agility class, a vet, who is a fellow agility student was telling us about a case she had this week. The dog ate a child’s teddy bear [...]

2010 ASSA National Post-Mortem

Whew!

The 2010 ASSA National Shetland Sheepdog Specialty dog show is over and we’re back at home. Actually, it was over almost a week ago and we got home very late Sunday night, 21 March, after a long but beautiful drive home from Tucson on mostly 2-lane blacktop roads. We’ve spent this week doing a bunch [...]

Horrible Week, Sort Of

Just a brief report from the 2010 ASSA National in Tucson, AZ (USA)…

First, sales are down. Horribly down. We’re just over 50% of the sales we normally have by this time (end of Thursday). Barbara and I would be better off financially if we’d just stayed home

Second, some time yesterday between 2:00 PM [...]

It’s Quiet…Except for the Panicking

We’ll blog more about the details later, but I wanted to tell our readers that we set some kind of new record last week. In one week, we placed for adoption six (6) dogs! It happened so fast that I found myself quietly crying one evening because I couldn’t remember all the details and I [...]

Outstanding Embroidery at a For Rescue Price — Thank You Black Spool Embroidery!!

These smiling folks are Vanessa and Bob Black who run the Black Spool Embroidery Shop. But they’re so much more than that and I only know the tiniest sliver about who they really are.

I can tell you that they’ve been supportive of Sheltie Rescue since before we were a Federal 501c3 and have [...]

Porter Leaves Spay and Neuter of Salt Lake After a Long Day

Tiny Sheltie-boy Porter had his neuter and dental (and vaccinations and heartworm testing) on Wednesday. Here he is leaving the veterinary clinic still looking a bit woozy.

 

He was shaking when I put him in the car so I wrapped him up in some fleece and put him on my lap while I drove home. [...]

Anyone recognize these two new beautiful boys?

Recently we’ve gotten in several Shelties picked up as strays that I’d normally think owners would want back.

These two handsome boys were running around a neighborhood in West Jordan together. One man took them in and kept them in his garage and looked for owners. This gentleman found himself in [...]
