My Collies!

Thursday my friend & groomer,Jen,& I travelled 3 hours 1 way to pick up 2 collies.I adopted a 7 year old sable & white boy who is sterile,& a tri colored 4 year old girl,Mia.I was unsure that I could handle the big boy,but I`m so glad I listened to Jen & took him as he is a sweetheart.

I never asked the people if they got along with cats,but Zeke took  to Simon right away,as did Simon.

Simon
As for me,my spirit was lifted just being around the collies.I feel I can face life again.People said,you shouldn`t get them now,you are going through so much with your sick husband.This was exactly what I needed,collie happy faces & love.....So far,everyone is getting along.Bandit doesn`t care for newcomers,but Simon & Mia push right past his ugly face & do not engage him as a puppy would.They are housebroken & have manners,& are the best 2 descions I`ve made for myself in a long time.We are bonded totally.I love them to pieces.My sidebars on my blog need updated now....so much loss & unhappiness this year so far,but much to look forward to now,thank the dear Lord & for my patient,loving friend who is like a daughter to me for jumping at the chance to go on my road trip,thank-you,Jen!!!

My best friend is looking around for a collie to adopt. She lost her beloved Princess a few months ago. She tends to adopt the older dogs so she's lost 3 collies in the past 10 years. I'm so glad you got them!

Ah..beautiful and I'm sure your heart is joyous. Nothing like a collie if you love them. I'm very happy for you and will send more in an email! Your girl does remind me of my dear Minty--although I believe your girl is white factored (because of her extensive white leg markings).

Tammy,you are right,Mia is white factored.They are so gentle with Rich,not jumping on him & sometimes they just sit & watch him sleep.It is endearing.Chloe,his "guard" dog won`t let them get too close anyhow,lol.

JoJo,I encourage your friend to contact the collie club in her state to find a collie.That is how I finally found mine.I also wanted older ones.They would know of breeders looking to place their older dogs.

Thanks Penny & Kim!!! They are great dogs!phyllis
