Default Hello from Indiana

My name is Beth, and although I've had shelties since highschool I am just now finding this board!

I have some experience with dog training for obedience and agility, getting as far as a CDX on one dog, with training for UD, when I was hospitalized from complications of being hugely pregnant with twins, and my training life was put on hold.

The puppy I bought as my new performance dog in 2002 never got a chance to be anything other than the best family dog I could have asked for. Life has changed, though, and I'm in the waiting period for a puppy I hope to have soon after Thanksgiving.

I wanted to say hello and chat with others in love with shelties, too.

Graeme, my puppy from 2002, suddenly died a little over 2 weeks ago. He was only 11, and I had assumed we'd have more time. I am still stunned, still missing him terribly. When husband and I talked about getting another dog, he was willing to look at other breeds, and at first, I was, too. But the more we looked, the more I realized that I need a sheltie. And so here I am.

Hi Beth...welcome the forum I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. Waiting on a new puppy seems like it takes forever. Furbabies are such fun...especially a Sheltie furbaby.

Welcome! It is always devastating to lose a little loved one and I am so sorry for your sudden loss of Graeme. I know a new pup won't ever "replace" Graeme but he/she will bring joy and laughter...puppy antics cure a lot of pain.

Trini and my gang.

Hello Beth, welcome to Sheltie Nation from a fellow (former) Hoosier. I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Graema, I lost my Bambi very suddenly 4 years ago, so I can relate to what you must be feeling. I'm sure a new furbaby will be just what you and your husband need to help your healing process. As others stated, we love pictures.
My sweet Angel, Bambi
Have good puppy dreams baby girl
