Sheltie Nation

They Say It’s Your Birthday!

Buddy says: “I turned thirteen on November 7th!”

I adopted Buddy after seeing him on Petfinder. He had been dumped in a kill shelter around Christmas Eve when he was ten. Since arriving, he’s brought a lot of excitement into all our lives! He’s the friskiest puppy here. He could play fetch all day, if I could. He had cancer 18 months ago but it was removed with good margins and he’s been fine ever since!

Buddy13Happy Belated Birthday Buddy and hugs to you Eva for all you do for those senior Shelties!

  4. Happy, happy birthday, sweet Buddy! I think you will have many more too! I agree, Eva, seniors rock! I have rescued eight sweet older Shelties and each one has been terribly special and, of course, just plain wonderful. All Shelties are wonderful.

  5. Such a wonderful story!! Happy Birthday, sweet baby!!!

  6. Happy happy birthday, sweet boy! I have no doubt you have brought so much happiness and love into your person’s life.

  7. Buddy boy, I hope you raked it in with the treats on your birthday! It would be tough to deny this adorable face anything. Kudos to you for adopting, Eva, looks like win-win to me!!

  8. What a lucky pup and HAPPYY BIRTHDAY.

  9. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUDDY! HAVE YOURSELF A FUN DAY AND HOPE YOU GET GOOD PRESENTS!

  10. Happy Birthday handsome! Thank you for rescuing him. It makes my heart break every single time I read about a dumped senior sheltie. I really wish there was a way to make the sure the same was done to those people. We can only trust that karma will look after them. We had a sheltie to 15 1/2. She hardly slowed down, her hearing and eyesight began to fail her and she kept having little strokes in her last year. We now have Shay who is five and hope she is with us for at least another 10 years.

  11. happy birthday to you and treats, too.

  12. Yay, Buddy!!!

  13. What a great story. Happy Birthday Buddy!

    Look at that sweet, sweet face and that BIG trademark Sheltie smile . . . congratulations Buddy on getting your forever family and home and, kudos to you Eva for adopting this wonderful baby, what a handsome gentleman he is and looks like he could be the life of the party. I hope you get to have many, many more long years with this sweet little soul.
