Arrival Story:
Foxy came to us in November of 2003. Her original owners couldn't keep her and put her up for adoption. We found her through Furry Friends Rescue in Fremont and it's been nothing but love ever since.

Alpha female to the fullest. Non-tipping ears, hence she's sensitive to sounds. ;) She's just plain sensitive; she'll intervene if we have a noisy discussion! Likes to herd things, bark at doorbell and phone--typical Sheltie behaviors. Shy towards other dogs and strangers but warms up eventually. Foxy rules!

Forums Motto:
Celebrate every day/No more public housn

I've been having a devil of a time lately with my skin. Really dry and itchy. I leave little tufts of hair all over, especially after B&T vacuum. It's weird because i had a grooming appt. last week. Man i was shiny and fluffy, looking good. B&T invited me up on the bed, which they never do.

The little boy is walking and we're getting along swell. In the morning, I like to sniff his hair and endure his light taps on my face. I wag my tail the whole time. The highlight of my day--after the walks that is--is when he eats. He likes to break me off a little something something, usually apple. It's distracting to B&T, so they kick me to the other room during his supper. But when he's done, they let me out and I do cleanup crew, licking up all the juicy bits of food that have fell on the floor. I think I'll start charging for this extra service.

Spring is here and B&T were doing some backyard maintenance. With all the blooming, the new blossoms bring a lot of bees and my job is to snap at them. Well not really, but it's built into my DNA. Anyway, I got too close and got stung! Ouch it hurt. I think it was near my ear because i was scratching it, rolling around, brushing against the ground. I was disoriented, too. T. got a little concerned but got my mind off of it by bringing out the CD. I snapped out of it and chased the sunny reflection. So I'm OK now, and am back on bee duty.

Happy Lunar New Year everyone! The family is good, I've been enjoying the time with the little one who finds me endlessly entertaining. My herding instincts will go nuts when he starts walking! It's the year of the dog, celebrate!
