Collie

We walked this morning at 8:30 and already the humidity was like a warm wet blanket wrapped around our faces.
All of our dogs except Collie made one lap and it was back to the AC via the doggie door.
Even Collie who is only about a year old, was panting by the time we finished.
Collie belongs to a neighbor, but he came for a visit in the spring, and apparently he liked the jib or our sails, because he's been here ever since.
The neighbor has come for him a time or two, but before she gets him into her pen, he off to the races and back at our house.
We've become attached to him so I sent word via her brother that we'd like to discuss terms of transfer.
He's a full blooded dog and I'm betting he has papers, but since he's been with us, he hasn't been to the vet nor is he taking heart worm preventative meds.
I'm hoping she will simply give us the dog, but the jury is out on that. Meanwhile he's sitting here with his nose resting on my feet.
If she gives us Collie, or sells him to us, we plan to give him a  more appropriate name. So, this story will be updated in a day or two.
Have a good week.

  3. The dogs always know the dog lovers. Dogs are so much smarter than most people give them credit for being.

  6. Hope you get to keep him. Sounds like he has already bonded.

    Dogs are so terrific for keeping us grounded.

  11. That is a new one, "Dog divorces owner, law suit pending." :)

    Dogs tend to know what is best, we should listen them more.

  21. Oh I hope you get to keep him, he looks like a lovely dog and he has obviously taken a shine to you. We had a wee sheltie when I was a girl. They are miniature collies. Lovely dogs.

  24. Hello Life 101,
    Thank you immensely for adopting my Blog, you timing has been a gift of encouragement and support and deeply appreciated.

    My Doberman Felicity, had reached her time after a bad day and night on Sunday 21st. The Vet gave us an appointment for 9.45am Monday 22nd... I came apart emotionally, but knew I had to follow through for her sake.
    I feel I'm wandering about in a void of where she once wandered, though I can feel and see her and know she is again her vibrant self and coping well with having left her aged debilitated body behind, and that helps me.
    We had physically shared 15yrs 2mths... it is very quiet without her presence, but I am also fortunate to find Friends unexpectedly amid Bloggers, who intuitively have perfect timing, and my other Critters easing me through that now empty space where my Felicity once filled.

    I chose this Story to say thank you and share mine... your Collie's gift to you is special, and for me brings back the memory of in childhood having met a Collie named 'King' who was the size of a Shetland Pony, and always endured me ooohing over him. Rather special connection I felt with the date for your Collie's Story and my Felicity's Passing.

    Good luck to both of you, may the Story just keep getting better, and thanks to both of you for the timing in my own time of need.
    From Magda in Australia and Felicity in Memory
