Upcoming Collie Frolics

Collie frolicJust a reminder that MWCR will be holding three Collie Frolics this year.

The first is this Sunday, April 19, from noon-4 p.m. at Central Bark on River Parkway in Wausatosa, Wis.  To RSVP or get directions, please email frolic@mwcr.org.

On Sunday, May 17, the Collie Frolic will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Stone Mountain Pet Lodge’s new location, 10073 Baltimore Street NE in Blaine, Minn.  Once again, we have a full day planned with an animal communicator, an energy healing/Reiki practitioner, Gray Gables dog treats, dog games, lunch, door prizes, and more.

On Sunday, October 4, another Collie Frolic will be held in the Madison, Wis. area at the home of Diane and Dale Liebert.  Diane and Dale have graciously opened their home and spacious yard to us for the last several years.

So, mark your calendars for these Frolics which are a great opportunity for the collies, and collie wannabees, to play while we visit and share collie stories.  Watch for more info on these frolics.

Rainbow Bridge: Keelin

KeelinShortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday morning, Keelin met April at the Bridge. They are running together again like they did October 15, 2003, when we brought Keelin home. She was to put a spark back in April, and that she did. April hadn’t seen another collie since she left her family in June 1990 and she was thrilled to meet Keelin. Thank you Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue and particularly Mary Hickerson . . . without you I would not have had the pleasure of adopting my beautiful Keelin. – Iva Rahlf

Editor’s note: Keelin is featured in the MWCR 2015 calendar for the month of December.

Rainbow Bridge: Sam

SamIt is with great sadness we have to report Sam, brother to Sadie, went to the Rainbow Bridge last week and is now playing without pain or discomfort. He and Sadie join our prior collies, Lady, Chelsie and Maggie.
We have been so fortunate to have had Sam and Sadie with the help of MWCR. They have been once in a lifetime companions and will be sorely missed by us and all who knew them. They were truly special.
