Well, we’re finally back from our trip. As planned, we spent two days driving to Louisiana to spend three days with Jim’s mother, who’s 95 years old. We left there on 31 July and drove the remaining 850 miles to Clearwater Beach, FL in one longish day. The next 19 days were spent doing a [...]
I have a recommendation to make to everyone…get yourself an angel who’ll look after you as well as Steve is looking after Peyton. Another package came for Peyton with more duck treats! And I now know that Steve has a great sense of humor because in the box addressed to Peyton, along with the treats, [...]
Hi, The discussion on iGive and related issues is great. I can’t believe how quickly the pennies add up! Go Patti!
In the meantime, our rescue Sheltie Peyton-boy, who’s been with us awhile, got a package from Steve in Florida! Peyton was turned over by his family because they could no longer care for him. He [...]
Imagine our surprise this afternoon when we brought in the mail and there was an Express Mail envelope addressed to Peyton!
Some weeks ago, a man in Florida (a lawyer, as it happens, but that’s not particularly significant to the story) saw Peyton on our adoption web site and was really touched by the caption below [...]
As our readers know, Barbara’s laptop was stolen at the ASSA National a few weeks ago. We’re incredibly happy to report that a hugely generous gentleman from the Houston area has donated a new laptop, which is probably going to arrive here in the next couple of weeks!
But being without a laptop means that Barbara’s [...]
We’ll blog more about the details later, but I wanted to tell our readers that we set some kind of new record last week. In one week, we placed for adoption six (6) dogs! It happened so fast that I found myself quietly crying one evening because I couldn’t remember all the details and I [...]
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 [...]
…should be in a forever home!
Peyton is a really great Sheltie boy. He has a fitted mahogany sable and white coat that’s just a little bit “curly”. He isn’t the “in your face” kind of Sheltie that some people love and others don’t like so much. He loves being near us, but doesn’t climb up [...]
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 [...]
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. [...]
