Sheltie Nation

A “Tail” Of Two Friends

This is Quincy and my neighbor’s daughter, Emily. When I first moved here, Emily literally jumped in her father’s arms because she was so afraid of Q. This little guy was adopted by me 5 1/2 years ago (he is now 11) and the only nasty aspect of him is his dislike for UPS and FedEx trucks! He did 4 days a week at the nursing home visiting my sister and other residents for 18 months. So, this scary dog had work to do to win over Emily. It took 4 months, but we finally reached the stage where SHE asked to have her picture taken with Quincy.

  1. What a wonderful picture and story. So many children develop a fear of dogs that they bring with them into adulthood. This is a great story of Emily overcoming her fear and a sheltie and sheltie owner having the patience to make this happen. A win -win for life!

    I LOVE this website. I always begin my day with a smile after seeing the sheltie picture of the day. Thank you so much for doing this.

  2. Good job Quincy! Of course, no one can resist a sheltie.

  3. So sweet, I’m Emily got over her fear of Quincy, because he looks like an awesome boy! Nice picture of them.

  4. Beautiful picture, I loveShelties

  5. WTG Quincy, we know all it would take would be some patience and these little babies seem to know just what to do, how and when to do it. I’m just glad that Emily finally realized what a great and wonderful friend Quincy could be, they will now be friends for life.

    • Sullivan….You are sooo right. They are friends for life. The other morning I was out with him before she went to school. She saw him and ran over to give him a kiss and yelled “got to go to school” with a little pat on the head.
