8/22/15: Miss Jean calls me something that rhymes with Lasso but starts with an A. Even though I am eight years old I have more energy than the rest of them and loved to be chased. It doesn’t matter if they want to beat me up because I pester them and it is all about the chase. The girls don’t really seem to mind but the males sometimes get really annoyed. Miss Jean keeps reminding me I will be neutered on Wednesday the 26th and she has been doing this for a month. I absolutely love humans and when they pet me.
7/25/15: Heartworm treatment complete and I will be neutered in one month.
7/18/15: I am probably the most lively eight year old collie fellow you will ever met and also the most loving. Went to the vet where he x-rayed my hips and everything looked fine. However he does think I have a bit of a neurological disorder because I sometimes like to go in circles and probably trauma sometime in my life. I will be going this week for my heartworm treatment.
6/23/15: Really good news for me and after having my blood tested two more times I do not have kidney failure. In fact my bloodwork was really good so I will have my heartworm treatment and then be neutered. Heck I have as much energy as these youngsters and love playing with them. I need to gain a few pounds so I get lots of treats during the day and whenever I go in my crate. Doing great with the housetraining and no problem there. All the other collies and I get along just fine and I sure am happy to be here where so many people care. Looking pretty good after my bath huh?
6/7/15: Folks my name is Lasso and my people took me to the shelter at eight years old because I was no longer wanted. I am only 45 pounds and underweight and when the shelter ran bloodwork found out I have heartworms and in kidney failure. I also have never been neutered. It was my lucky day went my folks abandoned me and the rescue took me in. They ran new bloodwork and it came back normal so there is a mix up somewhere. The vet suggested putting me on antibiotics and retesting bloodwork in two weeks. When I came in I was very wobbly and unsteady on my feet but I am improving and starting to play with the others. I am the sweetest fellow you will ever meet and please keep me in your prayers.
