Arrival Story:
We had decided on a smaller dog after having a Rottweiller/German Shepard mix for 4 years, then an Australian Shepard for 14 years. So I started my online search for smallish breeds, and stumbled across Shetland Sheepdogs in a Bi-Blue Coat, and I was smitten!! So I found a picture of the most adorable little bi-blue sheltie puppy and made it into a full screen picture and turn the laptop to show my husband!! His first thought was that it was another Aussie, but I said no this is a bi blue Shetland Sheep dog and would be about 1/2 the size of Mick Dundee (our Aussie who had crossed over the rainbow bridge 3 years ago). He too was smitten!! SO I started searching for bi blue sheltie puppies for sale, and found some, BUT discovered we couldn't bring ourselves to sign up 14 years of dog that we hadn't "snuggled" before he was ours, so started my local search, and looked at several litters before finding The Curriers' just down the road from my Dad's place. So we went and looked at the litter of 3 when they were just 6 weeks old (they'd had their first shots) baby brother was already spoken for and baby sister was too shy, but Seamus was PERFECT!! He came over to see us, but not too fast or soon, and after few test sniffs he walked over to about 3 feet from my husband, looked him square in the eye and pooped on the floor!! I knew this was the pup for me HE knew who to go to for #2!! So we put our money down, took some pictures and headed home for two very long weeks of Sheltie anticipation!! (and shopping). I should include that previous to picking out Seamus I visited Amazon.com and bought every Sheltie training book they had!! and read them all (and only spent about $25 total including shipping). This was probably the VERY BEST thing I did toward getting a new puppy, and would recommend it for everyone!!

We met Seamus' parents, as well as his siblings and other doggy family members as well!! We spent hours both at the pick out visit and the pick up visit. I also sewed a small blanket/mat for Seamus out of our old work jeans washed and dried it with our clothes, and then spent a week or 10days putting in my chair, and my husbands chair in each of our vehicles, I also put it on the floor at the breeders house when we picked Seamus up and let his "birth family" human and K9 walk, sit, lay etc on it the wrapped him up in it for his ride home!! The minute we got in the truck he settled right down on his blanket in my lap and went to sleep! After about 30 minutes we were at my Dad's house so out he came blanket and all to visit "Grampa" . My dad has alzeimers so I had sent him a picture of me olding Seamus (the day we chose him at the breeders ) a long with a note explaining this was our new puppy, and would it be okay if I brought him with us for Easter dinner. This registered with Dad and he was anxiously awaiting our arrival (for days according to my sisters who care take for him) He asked many times aday if this wasthe day the new puppy was coming to visit!! After a few hours at Dad's (2 new dog friends and 15 new family members) Seamus and blanket were back in the truck this time in his "travel" bed and over the hill another 30 minutes or so to my Mother in Laws. Same thing blanket and all! 4 dogs 15 family 6 teenage girls!! He was the best loved Easter treat of all, and he seemed to enjoy it, and still at 7 months LOVES teen girls!!
