  1. It's great to hear that she is doing well. Here's hoping for many more happy days with her.
  2. Congratulations on getting the puppy home. She sure is a cute one.
  3. Yea, she was very proud of herself, until the water hose came out, then not so much. We really do enjoy making the trip to KC, but man was it hot out there this year. Usually Nellie will not even get in water without a lot of coaxing, but she just walked in a flopped in the mud. Thank goodness for the border collie teflon fur.
  4. We haven't tried the other recipes, but Nellie will say that the frosty paw recipe is awesome. And just a little brag for Nellie, if you go to MoKan's home page, Nellie is the link to the pictures from the reunion, looking very proud of herself laying in the mud to cool off.
  5. I would think PB also, he looks a lot like our Nellie. This isn't the best picture but she has the same tail curled over her back and now that she has been with us for a while has much more tail feathers.
  6. You could also try Oak Island or look at Pet Friendly Travel for ideas. We haven't stayed at Oak Island, but did spend some time there this past May and it seemed like a really nice beach. Hope these help
  7. Way to go, Woobie. You've come a long way with him, keep up the good work.
  8. We just completed our ambitious remodel of all three bathrooms at the same time. It sounds like Nellie is very similar to Buddy in that she doesn't like people in and out and will eventually warm up to them. We were supposed to be on the beach when all the work started, which would have been good for Nellie, but we had some illness in the family and had to change the plans somewhat. Nellie spent most of the time with the workers doing this The cats, on the other hand, were not amused at all... I would recommend that during the demolition that you take Buddy out of the h
  9. Sending out good vibes. Hope they can figure out the issue soon
  10. In Columbus Ohio the license just went up to $12 altered, $24 un-altered, with a fine added on if they find you out without the license. They are starting to go door to door looking for dogs without a license
  11. He is surely having fun. Don't you like when they amuse themselves without destroying things for a little while.
  12. Happy Birthday Luke! He sure is a handsome guy. Make sure they get you a cake.
  13. I Googled also and found the website for the movie. Black Sheep website I may have to go to New Zealand to see this, hopefully it comes out on dvd here at least.
  14. Hey Miztiki, it is good to "see" you here again. Have missed your insights into things. I did a quick search and found a company that is making sulkies for dogs here. They also have links to other sites. Don't know if it is what you are looking for, but thought I would pass it along Hope all is well with you.
  15. This is great news to hear. I am sure that Ben is very happy to be home.
  16. There is one here in Ohio that I thought would be neat to send Nellie to when she doesn't get to go with us, but we opted for the pet sitter. It seems like a good concept. Here is a link to their website. Good Luck with the plans.
  17. I think this is the one you were talking about Please help! After two long years of being on a waiting list for an exotic rare breed dog, we were finally notified by the breeder that at long last, our number has come up, and... WE'RE HAVING A PUPPY! We must IMMEDIATELY get rid of our children now, because we just KNOW how time consuming our new little puppy is going to be! Since our puppy will be arriving on Monday, we MUST place the children in new homes this weekend!!! They are described as: -One male, white, blonde hair, blue eyes. Four years old. Excellent dispositio
  18. Julie, I saw this yesterday on the rescue boards. Link It started with someone posting the link to videos of Brock doing frisbee. Now they have links to some of her blogs talking about Brock. I don't think that I could ever consider getting rid of a dog that became injured doing what I trained it to do. I would rather retire the dog and let it live out it's life as a pet. Unfortunatley, I think that this type of attitude is too common in the world anymore.
  19. Happy Gotcha Day Tex. As soon as Nellie figures out how to get there, she will be over, she loves pig ears. Hope you have a great day and many more.
  20. I was thinking of her also. I checked and her surgery is on the 7th, but it doesn't hurt to send the good thoughts and prayers early. We also have Vicki going in on the 18th. Having just come through my surgery, it is a big comfort to know that people are sending good vibes and thinking of you. You both will be in my thought and prayers. John
  21. You will be in our thoughts also. Hoping for the best results possible. Seems there is too much of this going around, I have to go in this Friday (12/1) to have my heart wiring upgraded (pacemaker/defibrillator). The worse part is I just left the doctor and they said no throwing the frisbee for anywhere between 1 and 3 months. Told them Nellie was going to be coming to stay with them for a while.
  22. We picked Nellie up from MoKan in August 2004. It was a fairly interesting weekend. I took off work early on a Friday and we set off to Kansas City to meet and hopefully bring Nellie home. Nellie was very fearful and they were not even sure that she would ever come to us, let alone get in our car. We drove straight through and arrived in KC around midnight (didn't realize how far Kansas is from Ohio ) The next morning we drove out to the foster's home to meet Nellie and saw this girl that was well cared for, but obviously very scared of new things. It probably took around an hour for us
  23. We finally made it back home, that trip just keeps getting harder We will have to go through our pictures tomorrow to see if we have any good ones, Nellies Mom spent most of the time with the puppies, with some hard sale tactics being applied to try to get her to adopt one. She backed out when I told her that she would be doing all the training. I spent most of my time either throwing Nellie's frisbee, throwing balls for the twenty dogs staring at me, or trying to keep Nellie from attacking another dog that has decided that she needed to share the frisbee. Hope and Sydney are re
