He is a Border Collie Mix. He was a little more active, but he is just 9 months old.
He was VERY SWEET nature and seemed eager to please for a treat.
Any Name Ideas are welcome: The first name the girlies came up with is Spot.
We went to the dog shelter today after returned Mr. Duke back from his doggie field trip. :)
Last night I went online and located 5 potential dogs not far away at a different shelter. So off we went.
In my previous post, I mentioned about the near nuclear meltdown yesterday over getting a dog, so today, BEFORE we went into the shelter.... I explained very clearly:
When we go into the shelter, I expect young ladies to behave like ladies. I expect that you will be kind and respectful and THEN we will look at a few dogs. We are going to be patient and see each dog separately and then we will look if there are any more we should look at. I want you to remember that there is a CHANCE we will NOT get a dog today if we don't find the right one.
I CAN PROMISE YOU however, if there is any acting out, or unpleasant behavior, we will have to leave and come back another day, so you can be in control.... Do you understand what I am telling you?
"Yes"..... Can you repeat back to mommy what I am expecting from you? YES..... "You want me to be kind and respectful. You want me to not get mad if we don't find a dog."
That is right! READY!!! YES!
And we all went into the shelter. They were all perfect little ladies. We visited several dogs and everybody agreed on which two dogs to get.
THEN...... a potential upset happened. We can't pick the dogs up until Tuesday because they both need to be neutered. So, I looked at Miss Alli and let her know...... She smiled and said, "That's ok, I understand." GOOD GIRL!
And with that, we signed all the papers and we will go to visit them on Sunday Afternoon with Daddy. :)
Stetson is a Cataloua Cattle Dog and Woody is a Black and White Border Collie Mix.
We are so excited!
So PROUD of her keeping it together! YEA!
