Gotcha Date:
February 28th 2005

Birthday:
November 6th 2004

Likes:
Retrieving balls, frizbies, etc. Go for a ride. Lying on pillows. Running around outside while carrying big sticks.

Favorite Toy:
A thick cotton leadrope that she drags around outside.

Favorite Food:
Chicken & rice.

Favorite Walk:
To the car to go for a ride

Best Tricks:
When we open the casement window to drop a cracker to a visiting squirrel, Amber sticks her head out the window and drops her toy on the waiting squirrel. She also likes to eat her food off of a fork.

Arrival Story:
I've been making trips to our local shelter since Kira passed away, just kind of looking. I didn't know if we would get an adult dog or a puppy. I really don't care for the puppy thing, but with our cats having run of the house I was concerned about bringing an adult dog (and we wanted a large dog) into the house. I was visiting the sheter to check on a cat that I had brought in when the director of the shelter came in with a beautiful collie puppy, asking me what I thought of her and if this could be the one. She was 12 weeks old and well-mannered. The director said a man had her but didn't want her any more so he brought her to the shelter. So Amber came home with me.

Bio:
Amber plays with all of her toys and makes sure they are scattered all over the living room. She likes to play tug-of-war and she likes to fetch the ball and return it to me. She's good at catching a ball on the fly and I think she would be good at catching frizbees, but I can't throw them properly for her to catch. She's always carrying a toy around the house. Outside, she finds large tree branches and carries them around. Amber is a very good watch dog, nothing gets past her. Every car or truck that goes by, she races along the fenceline. Our house is on an acre in the country, on a corner lot, so she races from one end, around the corner, to the other end. She sure gets her exercise. If I'm sitting on the floor, Amber faces me, puts a paw on my shoulders and pulls herself to me to touch her head to mine -- a collie cuddle! I take Amber to the nursing home to visit with the residents. We visit everyone in their rooms. Everyone knows Amber; one bark from her and the residents call it "Amber Alert"! Without ever having any special training, Amber blends right in, most of the time working off-leash. She walks between wheelchairs and walkers, never bumping or pushing. Everyone wants to be visited by Amber. ~~~~Amber Highstockings of Whispering Trees~~~~

When at last my tired feet shall tread the Other Shore, a madly welcoming swirl of exultant collies, the splendid Sunnybank dogs that have been my chums here, will bound forward, circling and barking around me to lead me home . . . Albert Payson Terhune

I've Been Tagged!!

I've been tagged by Sylvie. I have to list 7 facts about myself and then tag 7 of my friends.

The 7 Facts:

1. I'm trying to catch that old opossum that keeps coming in our yard at night. I don't know what I'm going to do when I catch him, but I'll worry about that when it happens.

2. After everyone goes to sleep, I jump up on the couch and sleep there for the night. No one knows I do this, hee hee.

3. I play with our cat, Apollo. He has a good sense of humor and is a good egg.

4. When I was little I would get car sick, but I don't anymore. I can't wait to go for a ride!

5. My Collie group -- Holy Collies -- say I'm the old-fashioned, English type Collie.

6. I like to wrestle with Mom

7. I love my rope (toy) and will carry it all around the yard.

My 7 friends who I tagged are:

Rusty #795060
Mrs. Dolly Parton #801758
Skye Bella #915586
Reggie #633966
Emma #658660
Dart #853720
Aries #813782

Collie cuddles to all !!!
