Arrival Story:
I have always said I wanted a Shelti. I have fond memories of a sheltie I visited often as a child. My husband had heard me say this many times. One day he came home from work and asked me if I would like to adopt a sheltie from a work friend who was getting a divorce and neither of them wanted to take him.Bark!Bark!Bark! He said "he will go to the pound if we don't". Anyone who knows me knows if I can I will take the pet if I have room and can be a good mom to them. Ladd's name was Shasta when he came to us, but it did not fit. We had gone on vacation recently and had listened to a book on tape called "Ladd a dog" It was about a collie and his life around WWI. It was an instant match! From then on he has been called Ladd.

When Ladd came to live with us he was extremely fat! He waddled! The Lady who owned him before gave him people food and hid treats in his dog food bowl. To this day he pushes all of the food out of the bowl looking for treats! He is still a bit on the chunky side, but he lost over 10 pounds in the first several months we had him. He has many fatty tumors and is not a very healthy dog overall. He is blind in one eye and does not hear so well. He has many ear infections and skin problems.

I am a wonderful dog so it will be easy to think of 7 things great or not so great about myself.

1) I love to Bark! Bark! Bark!. I think I just love to hear myself...

2) I think stealing the cat food is the greatest snack on earth. I love it! I like to walk on the wild side.

3) I am on house sweeping detail everyday. If any edible morsel hits the floor, I will snatch it right up.

4) I sleep four paws up. The other dogs make fun of me.

5) I lick my paws until they hurt. I am always being told to stop, but I just ignore my humans and keep right on doing it.

6) I love to be scratched. I love it when the brush is run down my back over and over. I can't get enough.

7) Ok this is hard to admit but this summer I was shaved bald. At first I was embarrassed for about ten minutes but then I was so happy! I rubbed against every piece of furniture rolled and wiggled all over the floor, and my humans even think they caught me smiling.
