Me and sleeping in her bed
Jumping up in the air... Circus Dog
I believe fate brought Dixie into our lives after we saw her picture on PetFinder.com. I had lost my two beloved sable colored Shelties, a mother and son, at 14 and 12 years old. I really wanted to get another Sheltie but wanted to get a different color than the sable to be different from my beloved Shelties, Meggie and Freddie. Rescuing a Sheltie seemed like a good idea since I knew we could provide a loving home to an unwanted Sheltie. I was looking at the blue merle Shelties when I saw those blue eyes in Dixie's picture. After that, I just had to contact the rescue facility about adopting her. We drove to meet Dixie at the shelter and she was so pitiful. She is very shy and her fur was all matted and she stunk so bad. She was in sad shape with fleas, worms, skin and ear problems and under weight. Just broke our hearts to see a dog in that shape. We had to take her just to get her away from the horrible place she was living in. She is now healthy and we have given her a forever loving home. Dixie is now the prettiest girl and my baby and little shadow!
Dixie was a rescue dog so I don't know about her background or about her parents. We adopted her in Florida when she was 4 years old. Dixie is a Blue Merle Shetland Sheepdog or Sheltie for short. She has two blue eyes and is marked beautifully.
Sadly, Dixie crossed over to Rainbow Bridge on 10/7/2010. She was very loved and is missed.

I was tagged by my friend Gray Dawntreader TN!
Each player needs to tell seven random facts about themselves. Tagged dogs must post the rules in their diary and their 7 facts. Then choose 7 pups to tag and list their names. Let them know by pmail or rosette that they have been tagged and to read your diary for the instructions on how to play.
1. I'm very shy around new people.
2. I love to sleep all day... near my Mom.
3. I hate it when my brother Jake tries to "herd" me to get me to play with him.
4. I was rescued/adopted when I was 4.
5. I may be debarked as I have a raspy sound when I try to bark... which isn't very often.
6. I have pretty blue eyes.
7. I'm such a good girl when it comes to getting groomed... even though I don't like it much.
