A little background…Part II

Ok so yesterday I gave you a little background as to where my Mom’s obsession with Shelties started.  Since she met “Dandy” when she was a little girl she ALWAYS wanted a Sheltie. Well…that wasn’t to be until I came along!

Mom had a cat for many years. His name was Bobo. Since Bobo was the “only” pet Mom couldn’t get a dog, and Mom for quite a long time lived in apartments where she was only allowed to have cats.


Bobo passed away in 2007 and that broke Mom’s heart. My Dad wanted to help make her sadness go away so he started a MONTHS long quest to find a Sheltie for Mom.

He searched rescues for months but there were none in our area. Then, one day Mom’s bonus daughter, Marla called saying she knew of someone who was selling a Sheltie! Mom and Dad were so excited! They called about him but the woman wouldn’t sell him because Mom and Dad live in a condo. Mom was heartbroken. The woman said she knew of someone else who was selling a Sheltie that she couldn’t “show” and would they be interested?


Of course they were! It was ME!!!

Dad bought me for my Mom for her birthday in 2007 ! She really wanted a dryer since hers had just broken but she got me instead! I think I am a zillion times better than a dryer, don’t you?

So that is how I came to meet my Mom and Dad (and of course my kitty brother Cody who was adopted a few months before me!)

Barks and licks, Dakota
