Lucy The Sheltie

Lucy the Sheltie

"Hi it's me, Lucy. I am 5.5 lbs and so very happy at my new home after three weeks. I now know what it's like to live inside in the AC and get love every single day of my life. I came from a farm in a pen with my bubbies and sissies and Mom and Dad. I do miss them but I don't miss not having any attention and no shade. I have two people that love me very much and a new sissie cat that I love to herd around."

We were so happy in early March to have rescued a 1-year-old Sheltie found on our grounds at work. It became obvious after two days we would not be able to keep her because she needed to be outside where she could run and play. At that time we had no fence so we gave her up.

But in May we bought our first house with fence included :) My first quest was to find another Sheltie of my very own - meet Lucy! We were lucky to have a friend who took the one we rescued earlier in and she is deliriously happy. I am looking forward to the day they can play together.
