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.
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!!!
