Arrival Story:
When we got Bonnie, we fell in love with the breed so much we went on a search for another dog, we found Shakespeare at 6 months of age at a breeder, he was oversized for a show sheltie 17 inches and was being sold as a pet, we loved his cautious but loving quiet disposition. Our 6 year old grand-daughter and him took an instant liking for each other, he was lying beside her on the floor like it was forever. He travelled home with his head on Genifer's lap in the back seat all the way home.

William's registered name is "Shakespeare in Love" hence "William". He holds CD and CDX titles in Canada and comes from a long line of champion Shelties. William is retiring from the obedience trials this year. He has taken to barking in the ring which causes him to lose points. and he is a Sheltie afterall and that's his thing to bark, when he is excited and happy. We lost William (our Beautiful Boy) September 26th 2013. He was 14 yrs.8mos. & 26 days old. He had been ailing with many medical problems for years. i.e. kidney, pancreitis, acute arthritis and a liver problem more recently. But mostly seemed happy for the most part and participated in our family life. But while eating his breakfast that morning he suffered a massive sezure followed by several minor ones, which turned out to be a Brain tumour, that was totally unknown to everyone. Especially as he always was very much aware of what was going on around him, and always would let us know what he wanted. He left us at the Vet in a peaceful sleep in his moms arms totally unaware that it was our Goodbye. William was a gentle kind loving dog and was the leader who watched out for his pack. He will always be missed and be in our hearts forever. Run free dear friend from his fur mom & dad and his pack Patrick, Sophie, Mitchell and his pack Angels at the Bridge Bonnie & Morgan.

Dear Diary Yipee,woof woof, today we (that is my other 2 brothers, and my sister) went out for two walks today, without getting soaking wet. It has been raining pouring here for ever, nearly a month anyways. So when we got home, my mom did'nt have to clean us all up. Hope tomorrow is another nice day, so we can go to the beach.
