Being Thankful on Thanksgiving

Today is USA Thanksgiving Day. I don’t have the cycles tonight to get all philosophical, so this’ll be brief.

First, I’m really thankful that I’m surrounded by Shelties and by Sheltie-loving people — especially Barbara, who is the best thing that ever happened to me!

Second, I’m very thankful for all of you wonderful folk who read [...]

Might Have an Adopting Dad!

We have a very nice university professor interested in adopting our girls, Daisy and Ginger! They both just had dentals and blood panels on Friday of last week. Daisy’s total bilirubin was above normal…I have to try to find out what that means for her future care. Joe, their potential adopter, will [...]

Please, Sir, May I Have Some More?

I remain apologetic for the long gaps in blog posts, but life has taken on a, well, life of its own. My day job has gotten busier (short term, I hope) and Barbara has been having extremely severe computer problems, but we’re moving back towards "normal’ (whatever that is).

Anyway, I’m in jolly old England this [...]

Another quick update

Lessee…

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. [...]

Well, this is something new…

Friday afternoon, the phone rang. Well, it rings many times a day, including on Friday afternoon. But this one was different.

I could barely understand the person on the other end when she started talking, mostly because she was sobbing so much at the same time. Her first words were: My Sheltie has just been diagnosed [...]

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 [...]

Nota Lota Action

Not much has been happening, rescue-wise, in the last couple of days. We got a call from Jeff, the man who adopted Shadow, reporting that she’s settled in and is having a great time. You might recall that, in the same week, they adopted another rescue Sheltie (named "Kali") from Sheltie Shack in Kansas. Well, [...]
