A Lovely Evening with Shelties at Dusk – video

Gosh, Jim and I actually went out for dinner last night.  Totally by accident because we had a meeting to go to that was canceled just as we were getting ready to leave the house.  Jim suggested we go out anyway…we’d already taken the 15 minutes or so that it takes to settle everyone into [...]

Look at these Collies Play in the Snow!

I stopped by foster Mom Julene’s house today to microchip our two Collie-kids and I was amazed at the difference in them now that they are acclimating to being in her home and having her yard to run in and her miniature horse to marvel at.  They are definitely younger than originally thought.  They were [...]

Two Collies from Ephraim – One’s a Color-Headed White Female!

Two Rough Collies, one male and one female were found as strays in two different locations in Ephraim.  When brought together at the dog shelter it was apparent that they knew each other.  We can’t help but wonder if they know Nell who was found as a stray, at around the same time, in Salt [...]

Adoption Day for Nash and Missy!

Oh, happy day! We recently got a phone call from a senior-ish couple down in St. George, UT, who had adopted another Sheltie, Lizzie, from us several years ago. We knew that these people were special, because Lizzie was very fearful, was a bit of a biter, and had known health problems. In spite of [...]

Dakota’s New Adventure

Well, we’re down to 13 dogs (for today, at least — we may get another one tomorrow). Dakota just left with a fantastic retired couple from near Twin Falls, ID. For the moment, it’s a "foster" situation, but everybody believes that it won’t stay that way for long…it’ll turn into an adoption. (In fact, the [...]

Busy Weekend!

Wow. Where to start?

Yesterday morning, the lovely people who rescued Daisy (a/k/a Daisy Mae) three or four years ago (and nursed her through the loss of her leg — which was caused by her being hit by a car, not an infection as I suggested yesterday!) brought her over to our house. Daisy was a [...]

Just a Quickie (Goodbye, Shadow)

Barbara told me on the phone this morning (I’m on the road until the end of next week) that Shadow will be adopted this weekend, probably Sunday. She’s been talking to a family who lives in California but who happens to be in Colorado at the moment. They have just adopted a (young female) rescued [...]

Senior Adopts Puppy

Well, today was Tessa’s adoption day. Mid-afternoon, a slightly elderly man (let’s call him John, since that’s his name ) and his son (we’ll call him John too…same reason) came over for the older John to meet and adopt Tessa. Barbara had done a very careful pre-screen of this gentleman and we’d agreed [...]
