I'm so excited to find all of you. We've had sheltie babies for 27 years now. Our first sheltie was Laddie. We got him when our daughter was 3, and he lived to be 12. We always refer to him as "the old man". He and my daughter were inseparable as she was growing up. After Laddy left us, we got Lacey, who is now 13. She was an angel from day one, the perfect little girl. Thyroid problems have thinned her once thick, lush coat, and she has reoccurring problems with diarrhea, and we know that our time with her limited at her age, but she is still a sweetheart and playful, and we cherish every minute with her. Then there's Molly, our clown. Molly is 9, but every thinks she's only 3 or 4. She is the stinker in the family, but I tell her she makes me laugh so that's ok. Looking forward to getting to know everyone and their furbabies!
