The Top 10 Reasons Shelties Are Awesome

July 23, 2015 12 comments

I saw a post this morning that made me laugh: 10 Reasons Why You Should Never Own Shetland Sheepdogs.

If you have never known or owned a Shetland Sheepdog, then you may not know how the truly wonderful they are.

To be honest, I have always been a little hesitant to tout them too much for fear that there will be a mass swelling of people looking to buy one. There aren’t many people I know who would willingly give one up once they get one. Many of the ones we get into rescue are surrendered due to hardship, illness or death. They are just that loved.

So what makes a Sheltie an awesome dog? Let me give you The Top 10 Reasons Shelties Are Awesome..

1. They are so cute that it’s almost criminal.


2. Shelties are smart, and quick learners.

. Did you want my other left? #Jasper #sheltie

3. They love to play with you.

Wanna play ball? #Jasper #sheltie

4. They love to make you laugh.

5. Shelties are always happy to see you.

6. They are eager to please you.

Seriously? The camera thing again? #Cupcake #sheltie

7. Loyalty is their middle name.

A muddy mess, but very happy. #Jasper #dogpark

8. Enthusiasm is their second middle name.  

Jasper would live to be on your cover! #lifeanddogcoverstar

9. Cuddle time is a must.

10. A sleeping Sheltie will melt your heart.

Black and White Sunday #138 – Two boys instead of one

July 19, 2015 18 comments

It’s hard to believe that last week I was walking around without a care in the world. I was thinking about getting things ready for the work week and what I needed to get done at home.

Now, a week later, I am focused on what time I will visit mom in the hospital, what I can get done around the house and what I can leave until later, and can I go to a seminar I had planned to attend or skip it.

I am also focused on feeding 5 dogs instead of 4 and managing meds for 3 dogs instead of 2. My mother’s dog, Jake, has been here since Tuesday and is doing well. I think Jasper likes having another boy to pal around with. I love the picture I captured of them the other day, so I thought I would share it today.


Jasper likes not being the only boy. Jake, my mother's dog, is staying with us for a few weeks. #sheltie

Favorite Video Friday – One beach + 234 Corgis = Fundorable!

April 16, 2015 2 comments

Last weekend, Minnesota Sheltie Rescue celebrated all things Sheltie at their annual Sheltie Reunion. I saw more Shelties than I could count – blue merles, tris, bi-blacks, sables, chestnut sables, black, white, etc. It was Sheltie heaven for us humans and treat heaven for the Shelties. As it so happens, last weekend was also the annual So Cal Corgi Beach Day.  Imagine 634 Corgis running along a beach in Southern California. Yeah. Beyond cool. Watching this week’s video of the event made me wonder what a Sheltie Beach Day would be like. I suspect there would be lots of herding and barking and chasing one another down the beach. No doubt there would be some wave jumping and water herding (Jasper does this) too. Doesn’t that sound like fun? I’m voting for a Sheltie Beach Day in Minnesota. Anyone got any suggestions on a location where we could make this happen? Let me know! In the meantime… Happy Friday everyone!
