Barbara checked into the hospital at about 1:30PM on Monday of this week for her shoulder replacement surgery. She walked out of the hospital at about 10:00AM on Wednesday to come home. She’s irrepressible–I keep catching her carrying bags of dog food, poop-scooping in the back yard, so many things she shouldn’t really be doing. [...]
Two or three days ago, as I mentioned previously, Jackson came back to us from his temporary foster family. Those of you who know me reasonably well are probably aware that I’m not happy that Jackson came into our program at all. He was one of those dogs who have been presented to us as [...]
It’s only 10:00 in the morning and we’re already up one dog. At about 9:00, a couple and their 3-year old daughter came over to drop off their 7-month old puppy, a tri-color Sheltie named Cole. Their reason: He’s too shy and runs away from their daughter. Well, they’re a nice family, and the daughter [...]
Well, for a few days, since Tzar died, we’ve been down to an even dozen dogs in the house, about as low as we’ve been in over a year. It just couldn’t last, could it?
Since Barbara got back home yesterday afternoon, we’ve learned that Cassie’s coming back to us. Her family’s unhappy that she hasn’t [...]
Some weeks back, some of you (OK, one of you) said that you’d like to see some pictures of our sailboat and maybe some pictures of us sailing. Well, that subject’s got little to do with Sheltie rescue (except that it costs approximately the same amount of money), but here goes.
Our sailboat is named Dream [...]
Well, I picked Barbara up at the hospital at about 11:00 this morning, after which we went straight to a pharmacy to pick up some prescriptions for her, then home. She spent a while setting a recliner up in which she plans to sleep (under the theory that sleeping in our waterbed might not be [...]
Just a quick note to let everybody know that Barbara’s surgery today went extremely well. As soon as it was over, her doctor came out to the lobby and told me that it went very easy, no problems, no complications. And, by the time she got back to her room (about 45 minutes after the [...]
Well, tomorrow morning is when Barbara goes under the knife again, so we’ve been pretty busy the last few days trying to get the house and everything else as ready as we can. Of course, I’ll have more to do while she’s in the hospital to prepare for her homecoming (probably by Wednesday or Thursday!). [...]
It’s busy around here! This morning, Barbara went over to the vet’s office to retrieve the Fab Four who arrived on Sunday. By the time she got all four of them loaded into the car, somebody had peed in the driver’s seat (so Cottonwood lent her a towel on which she could sit while driving) [...]
Wow! Yesterday, a very nice woman named Pam came over with her sister and their mother to meet some of the dogs. The first one to whom we introduced them was Shelbee — and I haven’t seen Shelbee that excited in a very long time. She really connected with Pam right off the bat, and [...]
