Arrival Story:
We lost a cat to cancer, and decided it was finally time to look for a dog. A friend of ours found a posting from a family with lab pups at the local dog park and passed it on. Chelsea was the pup who came over and over again when we called the pups, and who was most interested in us. She's still very people-focused, and loves people.

We lost Chelsea to liver cancer. She lived three months beyond her diagnosis. We were so sad to see her go. We miss so many things about her. She was brilliant, intuitive, motherly, patient with all people, and enthusiastic about life. We will always love you, Chelsea.

Chasing Fall Leaves

I got through my knee rehab and I've been going on long walks, visiting the barn and going on trail rides, and going to daycare 2 days per week. I get a bit sore on daycare days, but a little pain medication helps a lot. Now I can't wait until the weather cools off and I can resume leaf-chasing.

I had knee surgery back at the beginning of November and I've been recuperating and leash walking, walking, walking since then. I've had three re-checks and my final x-rays and passed with flying colors. I just have one re-check left. This means soon I'll be back running at the park just like a regular dog. I can't wait! My adopted brother, Barney, has been going to the barn and the parks the whole time I've been stuck here waiting for this knee to recover. Once I get back, I don't know what I'm going to do first, pee by the fence, sniff the entire park for rabbits, chase and tackle Barney... the possibilities are endless.
