Collie story: Adoption is the best!

Four adopted colliesWe adopted all of our collies from MWCR and have had a great experience. Collies are and always will be a passion for me. All three of my collies are doing well.  Ollie is now 14-16 years old (LOVE LOVE LOVE HIM), Megan is roughly 11 years old and acts much younger and Charlie is my baby!  He is 5-6 years old and just the sweetest collie boy ever! They are so beautiful and there is nowhere I would get a dog from in the future but a rescue.  We miss dear Dave but feel blessed daily with these three.  Our friend adopted Willow back in 2007 and she is an angel, too.

Tribute to Max

Max came to us about a year and half ago, walked in, stole our hearts and never left .
The light of my 9-year-old’s life and he loved her. Max had a presence in every thing he did. His charm and personality, like no other. He had a love for his family, but he claimed my daughter as “his girl”.  She was at school when he passed. The hardest thing as a mother I’ve ever had to do was telling her Max was gone.

Max was loved all of his life from his first family to ours. I take peace in that knowing this incredible dog never went without love. Max would have been nine in February. He was a Collie/Bernese Mountain Dog mix.

Enjoy his video and yes every other picture is with his girl 🙂
Goodbye Max . . . until we meet again.

Collie Story – Puppy Jake

Puppy Jake here 🙂

Puppy JakeSorry I haven’t sent a proper update but my mom has been working a lot (so she can buy me more treats I presume).

For those off you who are new to the site I was adopted by my foster mom and family. I’m about a year now and I have what mom calls my adult smoothie fluff:). Mom’s weird and a groomer so whatever. I’m a HAPPY smoothie! I love all my furry brothers and I love my un-furry kids a ton. I especially love their toys!. I recently started to love my new Dad. My last dad wasn’t so nice to me. But most off all I love my brother Dice and he loves me. Mom said she never saw Dice Man connect to another dog this much. We even have our own smoothie language (really we do). We howl and talk to each other. Mom says she loves smoothies! I’m a good boy and have gained some needed weight. I’m learning puppy manners and to NOT steal a whole container of donuts off the kitchen Island. That un-furry kid left them open so I figured what the heck.

Well gotta run I hear my brother calling me. Thank you MWCR for bringing me into rescue and for helping me have a family. Boy did I get a big one.

– Love Puppy Jake
