I got dante from the same pet store i got my last border collie... I was really upset because he had just passed away and i walked in with the intentions of telling the owner of the store (A friend) what happened and looking at the puppy's (not buying one) to cheer myself up... Anyway in the pen in the middle of the room with this one little border collie pup who was getting older... he had beautiful big brown eyes... what you have to understand about my last dog... buster... is that he was abused as a pup and all his body was always sore and as a result he was aggressive when touched and fearful... he was in pain and unhappy so it was only my selfishness keeping him alive and I ended up choosing what I thought was best and getting him put down... I blamed myself for his pain... (and still do sometimes) but no one could help him... anyway he wouldn't play ball or play at all and he was always even as a puppy, shy and fearful... then I sore dante... oh he was beautiful... he stole my heart... he was running around and he came right up to me and bounced all over me and even played fetch with one of his toys while we where in the store (and tipped over his water bowl and a whole bunch of naughty, puppy things) He was everything that buster wasn't... friendly and loving... just loads of fun... cheered me right up... I could see in him that buster was in bad shape when we got him... he never played even as a pup... I went home that night and talked to mum about it... she thought it was a good idea for me not to hold onto the pain of my loss and move on... and we went back the next day and he was sitting there waiting still... on the way home he peed in the car which i thought was funny :D already naughty... I named him Dante mainly because i like the name...

Finally back from the vets only to be told I cannot exorcise at all for a week. No walks. no games. sleep all day and defiantly no excitement of any kind. I am also not aloud out with star and i can only eat table spoons of food at a time so i don't choke due to the lasting paralysis... oh well... a whole week of laying around watching TV with my humans isnt so bad right?

I got a damn paralysis tick on my shoulder and now cant walk or barely even move. Mum took me to the vets and now I have to stay there until I can walk again.
