Arrival Story:
We lost Nyx in August '07, but in September found out that Ben's owner was fighting cancer. He was staying with his breeder and needed someone to take him in October. It happened rather quickly, but he easily settled into the routine of apartment living in MA and sheep herding in Middleboro.

That was weird. Like when I was 6 months old, I became very tired, yet the sound of adhesive tape being removed from the roll made me crazy. There were sandbags and I was stretched out on my back. Crazy feeling. I had a lot of trouble making it into the car. I finally felt like myself around eight hours later. I was ravenous, so inhaled my dinner. Hopefully my hips will be good or even excellent and not require a repeat experience!

It's finally my turn to be special! (I was so jealous when Vesta turned 9 on6/9.) We started my day with a "Happy Birthday" song and a treat. I'm looking forward to more fun and surprises. Vesta is letting me sleep on the soft-soft sofa--woof!
