Sienna, Zen-Cat, and Rio Visit Cottonwood Animal Hospital Monday Afternoon

Sienna is being prepared to spend the night at the hospital.

It’s true that sometimes nobody has a medical condition to address but more often than not in rescue, somebody needs medical attention for something. Sometimes there are multiple dogs needing attention. It can range from anything as [...]

Arthritic Bailey and Asocial Shelly Become Playmates!

Bailey’s arthritis is so bad that she can barely walk.  When Bailey does walk, it’s with a very lopsided gait.

Shelly has always had weird relationships with other Shelties here…never really friendly, frequently unfriendly.

But Shelly has decided that she really likes Bailey which in itself is just wonderful!  Check out how they play together and decide [...]

Does Your Dog Chew His/Her Nails?

Here’s another gem I got from one of the various Sheltie lists to which I belong. I’m not sure that I agree with everything the writer says, or if she covered all aspects of the subject, but I thought it was worth our readers’ attention. What do you think about this subject?

Pet Nail Biting: Necessity [...]

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 [...]

The Sailor Home From the Sea

I’m glad that MandaBear posted the other day, ’cause it would otherwise be about a month since the previous post. Can you tell that we’ve been overwhelmingly busy?

A brief update (very brief, ’cause my day job is screaming my name):

I was in Clearwater Beach, Florida for 28 days, working on our sailboat. Barbara joined me [...]

A Little Angel

While Barbara and Jim are gone we agreed to bring one of the recent arrivals to SRU home with us for a few weeks.  Her name is Angel and I just had to share a picture that we took of her resting on the lawn yesterday.  I think she has such pretty markings on her [...]

What Me? Get MY Paws Wet!

I don’t know about your guys but we’ve got a household of kids who are very unhappy about going out in rainy or rainy-ish weather for fear of getting their feet wet! Feet wet! They eat poop, lick their private parts…I know we prefer to say that they’re cleaning themselves…are they cleaning those [...]

Tommy’s Getting a Job!

Ok, this is officially a teaser. Tommy’s getting a job pretty soon, but I am not ready to tell anybody what it is or when it’s going to happen. All I can tell you right now is that it’s not a traditional Sheltie job and that the woman in California who helped us rescue Tommy [...]

Ok, I feel like a Blog Hog, but…

One more thing about Rusty. Are you bored yet?

Rusty has become my official (ok, not so official, but official in my house) service dog. He has two important jobs. OK, maybe more than two.

1. He must retrieve the remote control when it’s dropped and return it to the mommy quickly. Ditto with the water [...]
