Missy arrived here Sunday evening at about 10:00pm. What a long saga this darling girl has been through! I carried her inside and set her down in the room in which all the dogs eat (previously our formal dining room). The room smells great to dogs because of all the kibble and dog treats we [...]
In December, we lost 10 year old Chloe to acute renal failure. The vet said it was caused mainly by long term use of Rimydal. We took our Mattie in for teeth cleaning last week, had blood work done and she showed stage 1 signs of Kidney Disease. Vet said take her off anti inflammatory [...]
We have been fostering Buffy for nearly two years. He has been a good companion for Mattie since Chloe died in December of kidney failure. Buffy has struggled with weight since before we got him.

I’ve got a horrible sore throat and cold right now and I’m limiting my activities so it seems like a good time to try to catch up on the many sad and many wonderful things that have gone on since we got back from Florida in August. It still seems like just [...]
This post is going to be a mix of what’s new in Sheltie Rescue and what’s up with where we sleep at night.
