2/6/16:  Well this week I went for my neuter and not sure that was necessary.  I absolutely adore humans and have a strong desire to please.

1/30/16: Here I am at the collie rescue and thank you folks so much for taking me. After I was picked up as a stray by the animal shelter, Judy & Steve pulled me and drove me all the way to rescue. I am about a three year old collie mix fellow who weighs 62 pounds which is a good weight for me. There are lessons to learn here and I have mastered sit and shake so far. Doing pretty good on the leash and great with the other dogs. Heck I don’t mind the cats and they are fine with me. I am full of personality and will make you laugh. When I bark it is a really strange, quiet sound and not loud like the others here. Got all my vaccinations today and next week I will be going for my neuter. I took some pictures so you could see all about me.

Thank you Chris Hillhouse, Terri Cheema, Ruth Cummins, George Jensen, Judy and Steve for helping with my medical cost.

1/16/16: Well in spite of eating 4 cups of food per day I have lost 2 pounds. Therefore I couldn’t have my dental. Now I’m getting really fattening food which I really like and all the cookies I want.

Twinkle Christmas

 

12/13/15: All dressed up for Santa and eating a few of his cookies also. I went to the vet this week for my bloodwork and to find out if I can have a dental. The teeth that I do have are completely incased in plaque/tarter. They also found hair wrapped around some of them and boy did it stink when removed. Doing great here and please keep me in your prayers.

12/5/15: Wow do I love being her where there is plenty of food and a warm blanket to snuggle up with. I get around great and can run circles around the other seniors here. Buzz keeps chomping his teeth at me and there is no doubt he is making fun of me because I don’t have front teeth. However he can’t catch me and much faster than him. I am the cutest, little thing who can’t hear much so I just follow the other dogs.

11/27/15: I was picked up as a stray by the animal shelter. I’m a tiny, smooth collie, senior girl at only 37 pounds but do need to gain a few. The rescue is guessing me to be about 11 years old. They caught a picture of me yawning and you can see I don’t have many front teeth. I have my back teeth and that is the ones that really count. The rescue would like a permanent foster home for me. This is where the rescue will pay for my medical needs and all you have to do is love me.

Thank you Jayne Vaughan, Kim Rettberg, George Jensen II, Valeri Rothbauer, Jeannette Poling, Kim Rettberg, Under The Maples, Lisa Corrigan, Ann Bishop, Caroline Berry, George Jensen, Karen H Smallwood, Debbie Olsakovsky and Edward Brown for caring about this senior lady.

1/2/16: Doing well here and have gained a pound. I have a bit of a skin infection and the antibiotics are taking care of that. Now, to the person who sent me this ugly Christmas sweater, thanks a lot and they are making me wear it.  However I do look pretty good huh.

12/26/15: Thank you Santa for my toys and chew bone. What a great first Christmas and we all had a great romp in the big yard today with the collies. I enjoyed lots of belly rubs and getting petted. The vet thinks I will top out below 20 pounds.

12/15/15: How deceiving a picture can be. When the collie rescue saw the pictures of my brothers and me at the shelter they thought we were probably about 30 lb. collie mixes. You can imagine her shock when us little ones arrived. I am little 9 pound girl and the volunteers enjoy carrying me around. However at this rescue all that matters is that we need homes so we went to the vet today. He determined us to be about 8 months old so clearly we are not going to be big dogs when we grow up. I’m still a bit confused right now and starting to adjust. I will be going next week for my spay and then ready to start my new life.

Thank you Deborah Showalter, Tammy Goodman, Nancy Covey, Debbie Olsakovsky, Susan Huneycutt, Edward Brown, Ann Moyle, Pam Barron, Michael Sanderson, Kim E Moore, Thomas Jeffries, Chris Hillhouse, George Jensen for caring about this little, mix girl.

2/6/16: Clearly I have hit the jackpot going home with Allen and Jenny. I will be their fourth adoption from the collie rescue and will be very much loved. Since arriving home I have met Lumpy who is a collie/great Pyrenees mix and he was a perfect gentleman with me. I have met the cats and they have also welcomed me. I am so happy to start my new life with the Walton’s and thanks everyone who helped to make this possible.

2/4/16: Pleased to meet you folks and I am an eight year old collie girl. My people had to move from our house to a smaller place and I really needed to be able to get more exercise. I am a wonderful lady who is housetrained and likes the other dogs here. I enjoy going for walks and rides in the car.

Thank you George Jensen for caring about me.

2/5/16: I decided on some younger folks that match my active personality so I’m going home with Henry. I’m going to be his best girl and we will do so many things together.

1/25/16: Doing great here at the rescue and had some fun playing in the snow today. I still very much like to have a good time and very playful. I’m housetrained and crate trained but I don’t really need that crate. Really enjoy going for walks or rides in the car.  My coat has started to grow back and feeling happy.

12/15/15: Well my matted coat had to go but this new nakedness feels a bit weird. I’m getting used to it and really enjoyed the bath. Went to the vet for bloodwork that was very good and I ready for my new home. Due to my age the rescue would like a permanent foster home for me. This is where the rescue will pay for my medical needs and all you have to do is love me.

12/10/15: I’m a very sweet, nine year old collie girl. My elderly owner took me to the shelter because she could no longer care for me. The rescue let her know I am safe here with them and will receive the care I need. It has been a long time since my coat has been groomed. Most of it will have to be shaved and then I will get a wonderful bath. Oh how good it will feel to have the air hit my skin and be clean. As you can see I am very good for grooming and getting those tight mats out. Please check back to see me when I am beautiful again.

My life has started to improve and thank you Deborah Showalter, Debbie Olsakovsky, Rebeccah Gan, Mary Petruccy, Gordana Kosutic, Under The Maples  and Maria Maxwell for caring about me.

1/24/16: Wow has my life changed and I’m going home with the Murray’s today. It was my lucky day I went to the animal shelter and will now have a family who will love and care for me. I have my very own bed to lay on and others to play with. I never know such a great life was even possible for me.

1/2/16: Feeling so much better today and recovering from my surgery fine. I am a good weight at 35 pounds and will be going to the vet next week for bloodwork. Unfortunately I do have a light case of heartworms that will need to be treated. If you would like to help with my care just hit that donate button and I sure appreciate it.

12/31/15: I just arrived today from the animal shelter who picked me up as a stray. The rescue is guessing me to be about a six year old collie mix girl. Life hasn’t been so good for me over the years and I have had many puppies. The rescue folks think I may have recently had a litter due to my sparse coat. The animal shelter spayed me on Wednesday and I’m not feeling so good yet. Please say a little pray for me and I am a very sweet girl.

Thank you so much George Jensen II, Valerie Rothbauer, Terri L. Cheema, Ruth Cummins, Brooke Williams and Carol Clasen for helping with my medical cost and caring about me.

1/16/16: Look who’s going home today with the Jourdan’s. On the way home we stopped at Pet Smart to get supplies for me. I showed them what a man I was by marking the entire store but made lots of friends who said how beautiful I am. I have met my brothers and sisters and we are all getting along. Allison and AJ have figured out I love to be rubbed and sit in their laps. They love me all ready and so glad to have a collie boy.

1/15/16:  Well this week I went for my neuter, a dental and a bath.  Tomorrow when the volunteers come I will get a good brushing.

1/10/16: Hello folks, my name is Cody and I just turned eight years old in September. I am at the collie rescue because I would not stay in the invisible fence. I will be going this week for my neuter and a dental. I am great with house manners, know sit, shake and enjoy a good game of fetch.  In the summer my coat was shaved and starting to come back.

Thank you Nancy Gooding, Jason Reich, George Jensen and Mary Witul for helping with my medical cost.

1/12/16: I’m going home today with the Morley’s and know I am a lucky fellow. They have adopted several collies over the years and I will have them to play with. Also they have cats which I am not sure about yet. On the way home we stopped at Pet Smart to get supplies for me and I did really well on the leash. This new life is a bit scary but I’m ready to give it a try and there is so much love for me.

12/15/15: How deceiving a picture can be. When the collie rescue saw the pictures of my brother and at the shelter they thought we were probably about 30 lb. collie mixes. You can imagine her shock when us little ones arrived. I am only 11 pounds and with my 2 sisters even smaller. However at this rescue all that matters is that we need homes so we went to the vet today. He determined us to be about 8 months old so clearly we are not going to be big dogs when we grow up. I’m still a bit confused right now and starting to adjust. I will be going next week for my neuter and then ready to start my new life.

Thank you George Jensen for caring about this mix fellow.

1/8/16: Miss Ginny drove all the way from Florida to take me home. She knew we were meant to be together the minute she saw my picture. When we get home I will meet her collies and I’m on my way to a life I never imagined would be possible for me. I know how lucky I am and so thankful to the folks who helped to make this possible for this little, big man.

1/2/16: I love Santa Clause and enjoying playing with him. In fact I really like all toys. Doing well with that house training thing and learning to walk on a leash without doing an alligator roll.

Kringle 3

 

 

 

12/26/15: My first Christmas and what did I get? Neutered, I got neutered. Also got some toys and a chew bone which were more to my liking. I understand it is all part of my getting ready for my forever home. I’m a sweet, little guy and the vet thinks I will probably top out at about 25 to 30 pounds. I get along just fine with the other dogs and ready to go.

12/15/15: How deceiving a picture can be. When the collie rescue saw the pictures of my brother and me at the shelter they thought we were probably about 30 lb. collie mixes. You can imagine her shock when us little ones arrived. I am only 17 pounds and the biggest one of us four with my 2 sisters even smaller. However at this rescue all that matters is that we need homes so we went to the vet today. He determined us to be about 8 months old so clearly we are not going to be big dogs when we grow up. I’m still a bit confused right now and starting to adjust. I will be going next week for my neuter and then ready to start my new life.

Finley (Adopted)

Finley, Candace & Ken

 

1/8/16: When Candace and Ken contacted the rescue about me the rescue folks knew this was the perfect home for me. They really enjoy doing rally, obedience and many other activities with their dogs. I have a very strong desire to please and still very much a puppy who needs this training. This is my new friend Bree in the picture and she is a Bouvier. It is her first birthday and getting a buddy is her present. Oh you should have seen us running and playing together in the yard although she is a bit faster than me. We made it home safely and Bree will help to show me what is expected of me. I know I have found the perfect family and home for me and thanks everyone.

1/3/16: Starting off the New Year is me, Finley. A one year old collie fellow at about 65 pounds. I am housetrained and still learning things a puppy needs to know. My person had to take a job and would have very little time to spend with me. I am enjoying playing with the others here at the rescue and all the great toys they have.

 

Merrily (Adopted)

Merrily & Paul

12/31/15: My brothers and sisters called me the runt and picked on me. Well who is having the last laugh now and I’m the first to find a home. That’s right tiny, little Merrily has a family and although I am a bit uncertain I know I am already loved. Luna is going to be my big sister and take care of me. Thanks everyone who helped to make this possible for me and I am on my way to a better life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Merrily 3

 

12/26/15: I might be the smallest at 8 pounds but I have the biggest personality. Today I was out running and playing with those big collies just a wagging my tail. Santa brought me a chew boy and some toys just my size. The vet thinks I will top out below 20 pounds.

12/15/15: How deceiving a picture can be. When the collie rescue saw the pictures of my brothers and me at the shelter they thought we were probably about 30 lb. collie mixes. You can imagine her shock when us little ones arrived. I am little 7 pound girl and the runt of us four. I’m easy to carry around so I get a lot of attention. However at this rescue all that matters is that we need homes so we went to the vet today. He determined us to be about 8 months old so clearly we are not going to be big dogs when we grow up. I’m still a bit confused right now and starting to adjust. I will be going next week for my spay and then ready to start my new life.

12/29/15: Today I went home with these lovely ladies. Michele brought me a new coat that fits and doesn’t make me wear that hat. We all rode home together nicely and once here I picked out a spot for myself and a chew bone. Michele is a vet and I will get to go to work with her and the girls some days. Yep, I’m going to be just fine here and thanks everyone who helped me on my journey.

11/27/15: I didn’t mind going to the vet for that bath and dental but did they really have to neuter me? Without my fur I have been pretty cold when I go outside and shivering. Just look at my new coat with a matching hat and a hunting I will go. I’m going to need a gun to go with the outfit and a ride to the vet where I can let them know how I feel about that neuter thing. Due to my age the rescue would like a permanent foster home for me. This is where the rescue will pay for my medical needs and all you have to do is love me and my ensemble.

11/19/15:  WHOAH, I Feel Good! So good, so good that I’m naked. Just a little James Brown there for you folks because I feel like dancing. I have been wearing that feces, matted coat for so many years. I had forgotten what it feels like to have the air on my skin and a clean body. It is just amazing and I feel so much younger today. Thanks everyone who has helped me.

11/13/15:  Came in today with Jazzy because our owner could no longer care for us. At 12 years old I am a bit confused right now but the other collies have let me know I am in a safe place and everything will be fine. Please check back to see my progress.

Thank you The Budde Family, Kimberly Luddington, Gordana Kosutic, Under The Maples, Mary Witul, Karen Creager, Pam Barron, Kim Rettberg and George Jensen for proving old collies are not forgotten here.

12/22/15: After reading over John’s resume and meeting them, I have decided to go home with the Borman’s. John and Peggy have adopted many senior collies over the years and I know what a lucky girl I am. We made it back to the hills safely and I have met Sweetie Pie the other dog here. This morning we had a little BACON in our breakfast and I knew I was in the right place. Thanks everyone who helped to make this great home for me possible.  Just look how happy we are.

12/19/15: Cherise Navidad, Cherise Navidad, I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart. Makes you want to sing huh? Doing great here and no problem with house training. Just a senior lady looking for a home where I can live out my years with love.

11/21/15: Well here I am at the rescue at the age of 11 and no longer wanted by my people. I didn’t do anything wrong and it seems they are to busy for me and that has been the case for a long time now. Any way I am happy to be here and adjusting. My coat got a good grooming but some of it did have to be cut. I am housetrained and a very gentle, loving girl. The rescue would like a permanent foster home for me. This is where the rescue will pay for my medical needs and all you have to do is love me.

Thank you Kim Rettberg, Deborah Showalter, Karen Creager, George Jensen II for caring about us seniors.
