    New member saying Hi! I currently have 3 shelties and a yorkie- Patrick, 6 year old blue merle, Finn, 7 year old sable and Amy, 7 year old red merle, and yorkie Jock who is 1. We just lost our beloved Kelley at age 14, a tri, this past week. I do some rescue work and have placed some shelties from a kennel that does breed competition and breeding and two of mine (Finn and Amy) are dogs from the kennel who wound up staying with me. Amy has only been here 5 weeks after being retired from the show ring and a subsequent life of breeding. She was in a trial home for 7 days which proved unsuitable so we wound up keeping her here. She is the oldest kennel dog I ever took in and she adapted to the life of a companion dog in no time. Still a little nervous and hates thunderstorms which we need to deal with but otherwise coming along amazingly well. We all like hiking and agility.

    Warm regards, Arlene

    Welcome to the forums Arlene and family! I'm so sorry to hear about Kelley. She lived a great, long life from the sounds of it. But still, I know how difficult that is. I'm glad you have such a big group of dogs. That makes it more bearable sometimes. Can't wait to see pictures of your shelties - and your yorkie! :winkgrin:

    Welcome to Sheltie Nation, you have found the best site ever for anything you need. From the sounds of your post I'd say you have a pretty good handle on all things Sheltie, LOL, but still a great place for sharing, fellowship, sympathy or just some place to vent and finally, just plain old fun. Can't wait to see pictures of your pack. :biggrin2:
