Christmas thoughts

Christmas is over and a new year is just around the corner.  Someone got me thinking about the gifts others give to us just by having their presence in our lives.   Our fur kids are wonderful gifts and we are really enjoying having them.
Holly and Noel are listed as available for adoption on the Pueblo Collie Sheltie Rescue website.  I created a couple of photo slide shows for them.  I will miss them and their antics – but they have better lives ahead of them.

Fostering in the spirit of Christmas

Holly and Noel have joined our family as foster dogs.  They are littermates, rescued from a dog auction in Missouri by the National Mill Dog Rescue and Pueblo Collie / Sheltie Rescue.  
They are very sweet and Dudley and Gracie will get extra goodies from Santa for being so patient and willing to share with the rambunctious youngsters.

Never having lived in a house, everything is new and sometimes scary.  Stairs are a mystery and the TV is both fascinating and scary.  Dog treats don’t make sense unless they are really yummy – like chicken or turkey.  The dishwasher smells yummy and the reflective door makes us think there are more dogs just like us beyond the door.
They don’t bark much except when doing guard duty to alert us to the ringing phone, door bell, garage door opening or scary other people in the neighborhood beyond our fence.
Here's me coming home to 4 shelties - it's a fun fest.
