Arrival Story: I began teaching in a new school a few years ago. We already had one sheltie (Dexter) but we were interested in finding a companion for him. There just happened to be a parent of a student in my school with a sheltie and they needed to find him a new home as their daughter had developed horrible allerigies and had become ill and stayed ill consistently.
We adopted Opie and a wonderful new family was born when we brought Opie home. His girl still visits him and donates gloves to support his stinky glove fetish. Opie is fantastic with kids and loves being loved on and sleeping in bed with his mom who he also uses for a pillow.
Update as of 2010 - Opie goes to my school when I need him as a teaching tool, the kids love it! He also goes to a rehab center where older and injured people go to heal and they love him there too!
He visits in my mom's assisted living facility and of course they love him there as well :)
Bio: Opie is also a pure bred AKC registered sheltie. However he also grew way past the acceptable limits.
