Meet Bailey and Katie

Nothing like a nice fall day for the dogs to hang out and our dogs know how to make the most of it. Bailey came to us as a puppy almost 8 years ago. He is the sable Sheltie in the picture. Last summer we started talking about providing Bailey with a friend. He had lost a close friend he visited on his walks and the neighbors were not keen on play dates between the dogs. Our previous experience with New England Sheltie Rescue had been wonderful so we decided to pursue another rescue opportunity looking this time for an adult, not a puppy.

We picked up Katy over Labor Day weekend. Katy is the black and white Sheltie in the picture. She was two and full of energy and a perfect companion for Bailey. I will be sharing more stories of both their adoptions and their adventures as this blog continues.

I know there is a huge nation of sheltie owners and those who love shelties out there in the cyber world. My hope is to connect with others who have had the experience of having a Sheltie in their lives.

Some of you may notice I have adopted Bailey's name as my writing name. When I first started my freelancing career, I wanted a name that was easy to remember and important to me. Bailey was the first that came to mind and it has stuck.
