8/2/14: It’s my special day with Robert and Carolyn coming to take me home. This is the miracle the rescue folks told me about and I loved them the minute I met them. When we get home to Virginia I will have others to play with and live in the house which I love so much. What a long but wonderful journey it was to find my people. Through it all I kept smiling and put on my best one for my adoption picture with the Welborn’s. Thanks everyone that helped to make this happen for me.
7/30/14: Well I’m home from my dental and neuter. I must say I do feel a bit lighter in the rear and had one tooth extracted. I’m still my usual cheerful self.
7/20/14: Had a good brushing and the hair is growing back on my neck. I have gained some much needed weight and looking so much more healthy. As always I am a happy boy who never stops smiling.
6/28/14: Went to the vet for a much need bath and my heartworm treatment. In a month I will be neutered and have my teeth cleaned. I get along wonderful with these puppies here and they follow me everywhere.
6/21/14: I’m doing great here at the rescue and my neck is healing up quickly. I got a good brushing with some mats shaved out so I would look nice for Emily’s birthday party today. We sure had a good time and I am so happy to be here where I am being cared for.
6/17/14: Sadly today we found out I have a light case of heartworms that will need to be treated before my dental and neuter. I have perfect house manners and enjoy being inside. I’m doing great here at the rescue and getting along will the other dogs. My neck is healing up nicely after being attacked by a dog at the shelter. Please keep me in your prayers that someday I will have a life and care like your dogs have. It is the life I have never known or imagined.
6/13/14: Please excuse my shelter picture Just arrived at the rescue today. Friday the 13th sure wasn’t unlucky for me and I’m on my way to a better life. I was the only collie of 91 dogs taken in from a hoarding situation. Clearly I have been a house dog at some time because I am housetrained, great on the leash and very comfortable indoors. While I was at the shelter my cell mate attacked me biting my neck and causing puncture holes. So I had to go to the vet to get stitches which means I can’t have a bath for a while. Tomorrow I am going to get a good brushing and as I get well will then go for a dental and a neuter. The rescue folks are guessing me to be about eight years old. Please check back to see my progress as I become healthy again.
It is amazing these wonderful folks care about me and helping with my medical cost: Christopher Welborn, Chris Hillhouse, Nancy Gooding, Abbie E Schaub, Scott Perman, Rebecca Fox, Audrey Sumner, Bobby Chastain, Kimberlee Rettberg, Mary Witul, Danita Morgan, Sharon Ross, Jim Sain, Carol Lightcap, Kim E Moore, Gordana Kosutic, Mary Diesen, Edward Brown, Karen L.
