  1. It has been forever since I have been on here. Much has changed. My partner Jackie passed away. Alex, Jack, and I moved from New York to Kansas City. We went through some dark times after Jackie passed. Life is going much better now. The Border Collie Miss. Alex is 9. She is still very active, but is deaf. She has learned hand signals quickly. Just wanted to stop in and say hi to all.
  2. Finally got some pics to post of our addition. This is Jack from Rainbow City Ala. Don't think he is full Lab and don't care. He has some crazy ears. Alex absolutely loves him. He has really been a godsend to this family.
  3. A little while ago I had posted about a young Lab in the rescue section. He is here and what a beauty. Alex has taken to him and and they have become good mates. I am trying to upload pics and not having any luck. They attach, but you can't click on them to open them up and see them.
  4. Earlier I had posted in the Rescue section about transport help for a baby Lab. He is here and is now named Jack. Thought I would share some pics.

  6. Yes he was, by me!!! Two volunteers at the shelter helped me find a foster until furever friends of the south or road rescue can bring him up.
  7. Eli is in Rainbow City, Alabama. I am in Auburn, NY. He is on the short list and may be PTS tomorrow. He is an 8 week old Black Lab. Jackie loved Black Labs and something inside is just insisting I save him. The problem is transport. I know he is not a Border Collie, but if anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

  10. Don't know if anyone can help. I can contribute some money if anyone can rescue her.
  11. Every morning Alex goes to the laundry bin, takes out a used washcloth, brings it into the living room, and rolls on it.

    Please know that you are in my prayers. I was diagnosed with Stage III lung cancer nearly 3 years ago and have been able to mount a full recovery (so far!). A good dog was very important to that process. I wish you all the very best.

  13. It has been forever since I have been on here. Alex has progressed from aggressive Border Collie you weren't always sure of to a confident, protective, loving, frisbee playing Border Collie. One year ago today my best human friend and the closest thing to family I have was diagnosed with lung cancer that had spread to the brain. The brain tumor was quickly dealt with and the lung was brought under control. Unfortunately this insidious disease spread elsewhere, the hip and the liver. During this time my black and white bundle of energy has been so gentle with Jackie. So attentive really keeps an eye on her. She has made herself Jackie's guardian. Jackie has commented on the security she feels because Alex is there with her. And at night this dog who has never felt the need to cuddle jumps into bed with me and cuddles. I want to thank everyone on this board for the advice as Alex and I were working through our trying times. Your advice helped get us through all that and to where we are today. And every night when I say my prayers I thank God for the Border Collie next to me. Esox & Alex
  14. Prayers and mojo comining from my Alex and me to you and your Alex.
