Off to Play

Today I'm bailing on you guys so I can unplug and take the entire day off, as we have a gorgeous new guy in the house:



Cole is a shaded sable Sheltie (Shetland Sheepdog) puppy, and as I went to pick him today from the breeder I discovered that he was born on the very same day we lost our Sheltie Buddy to cancer. I don't know if that's fate or just a remarkable coincidence, but it doesn't matter. We're simply grateful to have found Cole and to welcome him into the family.

See you all tomorrow.

  1. What a cutie! It must be the week for it. We brought home two corgi puppies this week. Voodoo and Viggo. Ah! The joy of housetraining.

  7. Cole is beautiful! I hope he brings you lots of joy---I think it was fate that he was born the day you lost Buddy.

  8. Was nice looking pup!

    I love shelties. I had two of them, one I rescued about 7 years ago, and the other I had since she was 8 weeks old. Unfortunately, I lost both of them. The rescued one passed 3 months ago. she was about 10 years old when I got her. The other passed two days before Christmas.

    I am looking for another sheltie right now. I hope to find as cute as your little guy. Keep us posted on how he is doing.

  9. OMG, he's beautiful!!! I just want to smooch that puppy! I kid you not--our Tigger was born the day our old Lhasa Aspso died.

    Enjoy your new 'baby'.

    Cole, congratulations on joining such a loving family.

    I love pupdates.

    I was away for the weekend and overjoyed to come home and cuddle my dogs. When I go away for a week, I start missing them like crazy.
