Arrival Story:
Mom adopted me from our local shelter (the Humane Society of Huron Vally (http://www.hshv.org) in August 2004. My owner had passed away, and the family had no time for me, so they surrendered me to the county sheriff (who then turned me in to the Humane Society). Mom saw my profile on PetFinder.com (She still has a printout of it in my scrap book!). Since Mom's husband had passed away several years before, we had a connection right away; we'd both suffered a great loss. It was love at first sight (and then Mom had a panic attack at the responsibility, then love again). Mom says I'm very loving and just a great, great dog. I feel like I found my best friend at that shelter!

Bio:
The Humane Society people thought I was a Collie mix, maybe Collie and German Shepherd, but my heritage is a mystery (I don't remember my biological mom very much, and dad is a complete blank. Hey! Just like Luke Skywalker!). I always have people stopping me to ask what breed I am. I've had people (breeders!) tell me I look like a purebred Australian Shepherd (I don't see it). If you have any guesses, let me know! :-)

Oh boy! I'm tired!

Mom's sister got a new puppy and boy, am I tired!! Shazam! (yes, exclamation point included) runs around non-stop! He's 1/2 Border Collie and 1/2 Australian Shepherd. He's a little shy, but I think we're going to be pals. I know mom was worried that I might bowl him over since I'm so big, but honestly, I'm having a hard time even catching him. He's a quick little guy and he loves to play tag! I see him on Sundays and usually spend Mondays napping. I'm going to have to start working out more!
Yesterday Mom took me to one of my favorite places, Pet Smart. A nice lady gave me a hug, she used me to try on a jacket for her dog since I was about the same size. I love Pet Smart since so many people stop to pet me and tell me how cute I am and when we check out I get treats!

 

Strolling Ann Arbor

It was sunny and a bit warmer on Saturday, and Boy was out of town, so Mom took me out for a stroll in Ann Arbor. It was GREAT! There's a store there we hadn't been to before, The Ann Arbor Biscuit Company. It was on 4th Ave between Washington and Liberty. They gave me a treat and there were so many yummy things in there! Mom bought be a yogurt coated peace cookie that I snarfed down in no time! The people were really nice and I got plenty of pets. We're definitely going back. I want to get a cake for my birthday there (pleeeeeeese Mom!).
Mom also checked out the dog park at Olsen Park in Ann Arbor. It looked really neat, and people seemed good at keeping an eye on their dogs, so I think Mom's leaning toward springing for a permit. Yipeee!!! I know the dog park area is about the size of one of our pastures, but there aren't any dogs to play with in our pasture! (The sheep just don't cut it.) I watched from the car, but I really wanted to get out and play!
I'm so glad spring is coming. I can feel it in my bones. Soon I won't have to clean the snow from my paws everytime I come into the house! That'll be a time saver.

My pal Mickey is gone now. I miss him. Spring won't be the same without him.

 

Me? On stage? We'll see.

I know I've been quiet. I still miss Scarlet.
Mom got a very interesting phone call last week. Apparently, the people at the Humane Society of Huron Valley (http://www.hshv.org) want to tell the story of how mom and I met at their fundraiser campaign kick off. So they invited me, Mom and Boy to their event at the historic Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor! It's tonight and I'm so excited!!! All those people, all those pats on the head! I might even get a good scratch or two. Maybe a treat! I got brushed last night, and I know mom had to fight the urge to dress me up, but I think everyone will agree that low key would be best. The event is tonight, 5:30-7pm and there's more information on the Humane Society of Huron Valley's website (above). I know they need the money to expand their facilities. I keep thinking of all the dogs in awful circumstances that'll be given a chance at a great forever home like I have and how much this money is needed for them. And not just dogs, either! I suppose cats should have a chance, too.
If I don't see you there, I'll see you around town!!

Woof!
