    Hello from Alabama. We are new to the forum. We have a new puppy in our house. We are long time sheltie owners. Our first sheltie "Aaron's Millenium Derby Patroit" or Derby as we called him was with us from July 2000 until August of 2013. It was a very sad day in our household when we had to have him put down.
    However my wife started looking for a new sheltie and in February we found her. We purchased our new puppy from a breeder in Kentucky. Our little girl is a blue merle named Kelly's Blue Grits (Girl raised in the south) and we call her Grits. She is 13 weeks old an weighs in at 9.2lbs. Tomorrow March 14 will be 2 weeks since we brought her home.
    It has been a long time since we had a puppy in the house! I will post a picture when I figure out how to do it.

    Hello FROM Alabama :biggrin2: We are north up in Huntsville however in two weekends will be near you over in Shocco Springs running Flyball. It might be a bit loud for a puppy as there will be a ton of barking but if you want to come and watch it is free. Not that I am trying to recruit more Shelties mind you but there are numerous B'ham teams :hide

I am so very sorry to hear of your loss of your boy, Derby, they all hold such special places on our hearts and take that piece with them when we have to say goodbye. Sounds like you found a real sweetheart, we can't wait to see pictures of your newest family member. :smile2:

    Hi Garry...A warm welcome from cold upstate NY to you and and to wee Grits.

    I am sorry for the loss of your Derby...saying good-bye is so very hard. But a puppy in the house will definitely liven things up and keep you busy.

    Looking forward to pictures of your new little one.

    Trini

    Hi GarryB, Welcome from Tuscaloosa. Congratulations on the Grits girl. Being a transplanted Yankee, I don't care for grits, but I'll make an exception in your case. :smile2:

    I have my first Sheltie, also a blue merle, a 1 1/2 year old male named Blithe Spirit. It had been 17 years since I had a puppy, so I feel your pain in getting used to the chaos.

    Have fun with your sweet girl.
