  1. This has been such an amazing journey. I look very much forward to hearing about Kelso's future.
  2. I believe she means miniature Border Collie as in all grown up personality and attitude.
  3. Nancy, I can't seem to find your phone number, but I'd like to talk with you about Dixie. Check your pm's. I'll give you my number and you can call me when you get a chance. Jenn
  4. Hi Nancy,

    I'm not familiar with Nancy's dogs, but I think you are right to follow your instincts and wait for the right dog. Remind me what kind of dog you are looking for and I can keep an eye out for you. Jenn

  5. We went up to Franklinton and looked at two dogs that Nancy Solum is fostering. I think we could adopt Betsy. But she is 4. I was hoping for 6 months to 2 years. Know of any around here? I'd go to the pound - but I'd have to bring home every dog and cat - and rabbits and guinea pig and even snakes.

  6. What a touching tribute. I remember when I got that first email about the two LGD's many years ago and was so happy that they ended up in such good homes. I'm more than certain that she appreciated and loved you as much as you did her. Jenn
  7. It was a tough battle.... but eventually, the kitty won.
  8. One of our kitties can't resist the stuffies either.
  9. Hi Nancy,

    Fantastic. The first thing to do is go to our CBCR.org and fill out an application (the adoption application is for new fosters as well.).


  10. We're definitely not ready to adopt another dog yet. But DH just said that if (when) you have a relatively young dog that is OK with cats and with older (9 and up) kids and who needs a temporary home, he might be willing to foster. We don't have a fenced yard, but we are willing to do lots of 1-mile walks around our neighborhood pond.

  11. My heart just aches for you right now.

    Oh Nancy, I'm so very sorry for your loss.
  13. Very good point Julie. This is an issue that has been very much on my mind lately. CBCR has a handful of dogs who are aggressive and basically not adoptable. We have a policy never to pull a dog that shows either human or dog aggression, but sometimes these behaviors don't show up until a dog is settled down and feeling comfortable in the foster home. Some of these dogs have been in foster homes for years and are both a psychological and a financial burden to the rescue. I know we have to come up with an official policy to handle these circumstances, but it is such a divisive issue and one that people don't seem to want to confront. I'd love to know how other rescues handle this. Jenn
  14. Mary, This is one of the things I hate most about doing rescue. Coming upon a dog that will require tremendous amounts of time and resources without knowing if it will do any good in the end. I'm very disturbed about Pip's aggressive behavior. This is the biggest red flag for me. Would you ever feel safe adopting out an animal that is very clearly capable of biting and inflicting harm?
