Look who we sprung from the local animal shelter today! He'd only been there 2 days, but he was so happy to leave! The shelter director said that he wouldn't eat while he was there. Well, 10 minutes at our house and he was eating like a little horse. I think he knows he found a good thing by coming here. Dogs don't get much time at our local shelter and they were overfull. I think we all know what that means.
So, we have a new foster dog! This one is a big sheltie. Just look at that face! He's smiling! :) He's a real sweetheart. I bet we don't have him long before he's matched up with a permanent family.
Earlier today, my collie Harley was trying to get on my lap. Well, he's 85#, so I was adamantly opposed to the idea! I was trying to push him down when I saw the new foster put his paws up on my chair too. I wasn't too concerned. He's a little guy. WELL! I should have paid more attention because all of a sudden, WHAM! I had a big sheltie on my lap. He FLEW THROUGH THE AIR like he had SPRINGS in his legs. Hmmmm...
I am used to my slug collies. I think we are in for a little excitement! :)
