    Hi all,
    I joined this wonderful site today. I have had dogs for over 33 years since childhood. I grew up with 2 lively & nutty border collie x springer spaniels, they were sisters. At 18 I had the first dog of my own, Scampi a collie x sheltie. 11 years ago I had my first purebred Sheltie, my beautiful Dennis a tri-boy from rescue and a year later got my second Sheltie Dazzle a sable girl. As it says in the Sheltie books "once you have you're first Sheltie you become a lifer!" Certainly true in my case! Sadly Dennis died last year and Dazzle died too young 2 years earlier-still trying to get over the shock! At least they are reunited with Scampi at Rainbow Bridge.

    I have had Betty a shaded sable for 2 & half years, (she really helped Dennis to be himself again after Dazzle died) and Luana a blue merle for just over 2 months. Betty is 3yrs old and Lu is 5yrs old and Lu settled in almost as soon as she walked through the door - like she'd been here before! I also have my friends Sheltie to stay so sometimes I have 3 in the house!

    I feel honoured to have been blessed with such special dogs in my life, they mean the world to me and I will always miss the ones who have gone before especially Dennis, my four-legged soul mate and very special gentle boy.

    Looking forward to meeting you all.

    A warm welcome from another newbie.

    Our first Sheltie is now 14 months old. She is also a shaded sable. My husband says he wishes we had bought one years ago. Our Kenna is a magic little dog. Highly intelligent and eager to please. Happy to race around for hours with our Whippet when we take her to the farm. Just as happy to curl up beside me while I read or use the computer. They really are great little dogs.
