Katy outside

Last July 30th I picked Katy up in Statesville, NC and Sunday we celebrated our one year anniversary and Katy’s birthday since we don’t really know.  Katy has come such a long way.  Katy is affectionate, sweet beyond words and a very funny girl.  I love her more each day.  I wanted to send a recent pic or two.

Katy has gained about 3.5 pounds but is lean and active.  In the cool mountain air her coat is heavier and she is as soft as velvet.  Katy has been pure joy 😊

Thank you CBCR.

I’ve Been Adopted

Buddy headshot

Buddy is a handsome 9 month old, smooth coated Border Collie. He is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccinees. This playful little pup is a smart little guy and easily trainable. He is already house broke, crate trained and will ring bells on the door to go outside to go potty. He also knows a couple basic commands like sit and lay down. He does have herding instincts and enjoys herding my ducks but is far too interested in cats to live in a home with cats.

Buddy is very sweet and loves meeting new people. He is gentle and slow to approach strangers but once they pet him he warms right up. Buddy is still learning what life has to offer and is figuring out loud noises won’t hurt him. He has been to Petco and did wonderful in public.

Shelby headshot

Shelby turned up as a stray in Gwinnett County Georgia.  She is a lovable, live wire of a young girl.  If she could have it her way, she would play all day with other dogs or with people, or both.  A couple of hours of rough and tumble comes no where near to discharging Shelby’s energy.  She is fit and agile, a possible candidate for agility or for herding trials. She sleeps a good solid 9 hours a night, preferably curled up tightly against you in your bed.

Shelby especially enjoys tug of war. If you can extract the tug from her mouth and throw it, she will chase it down and bring it back to shove against your hand: “Play with me play with me now!” She is fascinated by water and will bite and drink water from a hose as well as water poured from a pitcher. Might make a good dock diver!
