Thanks Leann for barking in to tell me about Storm blowing onto the Dog Each Day site!

Storm (then known as Orly”) was rescued from a shelter in Slidell, LA following Hurricane Katrina. The Carolinas Bearded Collie Club took him in and contacted me, knowing that I was looking for my first Beardie and that he would be the perfect dog for me. I brought him home on September 24th – which happens to be when the eye of hurricane Rita made landfall in Texas.

Storm is the most fascinating dog I have ever met. He is intensely observant and keen: a clever fellow who picks up on the subtlest changes in his environment. He is also a sensitive guy and highly attuned to his Person. While not immediately apparent, his sensitivity and intelligence come with a very definite stubborn streak. Fortunately, I am just as sensitive, stubborn, and hopefully as intelligent as he is, so we have fun matching wits. – Sarah

This is what the artist, Larry Merrill, had to say about Storm.

Thank you for sharing. Sarah. You take some very fine photographs – Storm looks like a pro at posing for you. Beautiful dog!

Congratulations Storm and Sarah — for the marvelous portrait and for finding each other!
