Sheltie Nation

Might be gone, but never forgotten.

This is our three babies Myla, Maggie and little Sophie visiting their fallen Sheltie “angel” Katie who passed last June. Love the fact she is still a part of the group in this picture. Amazingly they all spend a lot of time up by her grave. Shelties are just so smart…they just know.


Lovely photo, Christine.

  1. So sweet, they’re all gorgeous.

  2. What a beautiful tribute, the three girls paying their respects to their sister Katie. Brought a lump to my throat. I also have 3 girls and lost their sister Asta last September.

    • Thank you. So hard to let them go as they become such a part of you. Still think of her every day. The three sisters help ease the loss though. They all just have a way of winding themselves around your heart. Enjoy your beauties.

  3. So reminds me of our first three, Cary Hendrix.

  4. Shelties are sometimes so smart they can be scary. It’s always humbling to see the depth of their compassion & understanding.

  5. I’m so sorry for your family’s loss and I include your 3 furkids in the photo. I know they feel the loss, like you but different. May you have decades worth of love, fun, cuddles and play with your 3 beauties.

    • Not a day goes by that I don’t think of Katie and I think the furbabies miss her too. I don’t know what I would do without my babies to love and play ball with. I will never be without a dog and I assure you it will always be a Sheltie!

  6. Such a heartwarming image Christine!
    Katie appreciates appreciates still being part of your pack if only in spirit!
    She may have passed but never is a sheltie angle forgotten!

    • Thank you Katie was indeed an angel. It really is amazing how much time the others really spend up there and they go all on their own. They play and act crazier than ever when they are up by her grave. Almost like they are telling her things are okay and they have things covered.

  7. First, I am so sorry of your loss of your little Katie, it is never easy to let them go is it? This is such a sweet picture of Myla, Maggie ad Sophie paying tribute to their fallen sister, Katie. As the title says, gone but not forgotten, thank you for showing us your baby’s good manners.

    • Thank you for your kinds words. Katie will never be forgotten. She wrapped herself around our heart for 14 years and I just had to be unselfish and let her go. She was as loyal as was possible for her until the end. She was the respected one by all the others.
