Arrival Story:
For a long time my mother wasn't keen on getting a dog. She 'liked' dogs, but she didn't want to own one. One day my father and I saw Shadow at a Petco. The rescue group he was with was there and talking to people about shelties. We just couldn't resit his handsome, cute face so we put in our names for an interview. Several days later Bill, the director of Mid-Arizona Shelite Rescue, called and said he was brining over Shadow for the interview. It was great news, but my mother had not been told. When the doorbell rang and my mom opened the door to find a strange man and sheltie standing there we quickly tried our best to explain and persuade. She agreed to foster Shadow as a trial to see if he would fit our life style. A week later she was in the car driving him to get his license. About mid-way through the journey Shadow put his paws on the console and placed his head on her shoulder and gave a content sigh. Mr. Shads has been with us ever since.

Shadow is my second rescue pup and I love him to death!! He is the most well-behaved and loving dog. He has his quirks but he is 100% sheltie!

Those blasted kid goldens got on my LAST nerve today! Jumping in and out of the water, running around like maniacs, and splashing water on me! It's enough that I have to watch my human kids and protect them in case they get hurt, but those dumb goldens are gonna get in trouble too. I figure since my mom likes em' so much I should protect them as well. Grrrr they better knock it off before I get to them rather that the monster that is water does.


I Caught It!

My good friend Annie the Puggle threw me the football and I need to pass it to five people. Be sure to give a bone to the passer and the passer will give a bone to you. You must write 5 funny things about yourself. Good Luck Pals!

1. After my surgery the vet is NOT my favorite person. My response is to shudder when she touches me. It makes my mom's heart break but is also cute!
2. I bark at EVERYTHING!! But hey I am a sheltie and that's what we do. Time for a walk? Arf arf! Was that a leaf that just touched MY sidewalk, arf ARF!
3. I have a habit of howling when my people are home but I can't be with them. Scared my mom the first time I did it because really she was just upstairs reading. I couldn't find her though!
4. I nip people when I think they are moving too slow. Mornings my kids go to school equals walks for me! The faster we go the better. Besides I need to take care of my kids and get them to school on time!5. Walks, chicken, and car rides are my absolute FAVORITE things EVER! Want to win me over? Feed me chicken, take me for a long walk and drive me around in your convertable!
Alright well, let's see. I'll tag:

Miss Attie

OK- Have Fun!!!!!!


They're not taking me baaaaack!! :)

Yay good news!! "The vet" claims she doesn't have any room for me. Hah I know that she just doesn't want to deal with me again!! I'm too much for her and her puny force of "helpers"

Instead my vet tech friend, Alex, is gonna watch me. I LOVE HER!! She's soooo pretty and sooo nice!! Man I'm drooling just thinking about it!!

In other news my recovery is going well. I'm starting to eat solids, but it was a little too much for my tummy so we have to cut back.

Please pray for me!!

Puppy Love and Kisses,
