Arrival Story:
Shelby was my Christmas present to myself in 1997 after losing Lady, my adorable Cocker of 14 years. I picked Shelby up 3 days before Christmas. I got her from a breeder with an 8 year old boy who had fallen in love with "Precious" aka Shelby and was waiting on the front porch in tears the night I came to pick her up. It was quite cold out but the young boy stood on the front porch underneath the light waiting for my arrival. As I left with Shelby, he made me promise that I would retain the name "Precious" since she already knew the name. She was a fairly expensive puppy and I've never had such mixed emotions about buying an animal for myself. Talk about the grinch who stole Christmas?! I soon recovered and fell head over heals with Shelby. She became my baby girl and that hasn't changed in 10 years. She is much smarter than most human's I know but wired extremely tight. She is always "on duty" which is escorting/leading me whereever it is I need to go and rounding up the others in the household as she sees fit (which is constantly).

We live in Ohio and have been here our entire lives.
