Someone Is Having A Better Birthday Party Than You!

Dickie’s 10th birthday was this past week.

It is hard to believe that a decade has passed since we brought home literally a large guinea pig and watched him grow into our beautiful Sheltie.

dickie-bday-1It is brutally hot here so I made Dickie a nice cool birthday supper made of human food just for this special night. A grilled chicken tender, a Sheltie sized baked potato, lettuce, yellow beans, baby tomatoes and parsley from my garden, sliced carrots, some boiled egg and a little spoonful of baked beans (which he is mad for).

dickie-bday-2As you can see the lettuce was not a hit!

dickie-bday-3What a lucky, lucky boy, Nancy!

Happy birthday Dickie!

Shetland Sheepdog reunited with owner after steep fall


Photos from the rescue show the emotional moment Macdonald and Max were reunited.

The case of a missing Sheltie turned into a dramatic rescue Thursday after firefighters had to save a family pet that had fallen over a cliff.

Fraser Macdonald discovered his dog Max had gone missing Wednesday night from their Belcarra yard, and it wasn’t until Thursday morning that the first clues of Max’s whereabouts were noticed by a neighbor.

The neighbor alerted Macdonald after hearing barks from the other side of a large bluff. After looking, they found Max about 70-feet down the cliff.

Sasamat Volunteer Fire Department was called and collaborated with Port Moody Fire to perform a high-angle rescue. Max was lifted up the bluff in one of Macdonald’s shopping bags.

The dog was in good health, except for being a little thirsty.


We love happy endings!
