Sashi Adopts a Brother

sashibrothersmlSashi is back – and this time she’s a princess!

Sashi knows what it’s like to be unwanted. She was a rescue Sheltie when Anna and her mother adopted her. After a few years, Sashi’s humans decide to foster rescues until they find permanent homes. Well-trained and confident in her place among her humans, Sashi makes sure the fosters know that she’s the princess of the house. Some of the fosters teach her fun tricks, like climbing snowdrifts. Others—like the one who chases a laser light toy—just seem strange.  But none challenges her ability to rule her home as much as one over sized and rambunctious Sheltie who had to leave his original home due to his bad behavior.

“ A charming tale of friendship between dogs and the love of owners who understand their pets.”    – Kirkus Review

New Children’s Book: Sashi, the Scared Little Sheltie

SashiThis wonderful new children’s book has been written by Linda Greiner and illustrated by Morgan Spicer of Bark Point Studio. Linda is generously donating a portion of the sale proceeds to Shetland Sheepdog Placement Services of New Jersey.

Sashi, the Scared Little Sheltie tells the true story of a little Sheltie who does what came naturally – she “herds” everything that moves. Because her original family does not understand, she is left at a shelter and cowers in the back of the cage, not knowing what she did wrong. Adopted through Sheltie Rescue, her new family helps Sashi overcome her rocky start in life and she blossoms into the confident, happy dog she was meant to be!

Sashi’s book is in hard cover and retails for $14.95. Bonus: All books will be shipped with a special bookmark that has two illustrations by Morgan Spicer.  Please note: rescues should contact Linda directly for discounted pricing.

Visit for a sneak peak of some wonderful illustrations and to place your order. Expected availability is November 24th, 2014. These will make a great gift – just in time for the holidays!

Special Edition Die Cut: Last Call

Special Edition Sheltie Nation Die-Cut Decal

Only for a limited time!

If you missed the announcement last week, we are offering a re-print of the special edition decal. The last day to order them will be 8/5. You can click the button below.

This style of decal is the graphic cut out in vinyl with no background, like those you frequently see on car windows. These decals are printed and “weeded” one at a time, so they are much more labor intensive than the peel-and-place stickers. As a result, they cost much more to produce, but the extra price is worth the sharp look.

The cost of these decals will be the same as the last offering, $12.00 USD. (Regular postage to your location will apply.) I will leave the ordering open for two weeks until about 8/5/14 then close it so I can place the order with the printer. You should have your special edition decal in about 3 weeks.

Just click the link below to be taken to the paypal portal. If you want to keep up to date with the conversation about these decals, just visit our forums.

Support Sheltie Nation and Win! Bags on Board

Did you know that the bacteria found in pet waste poses health risks to you and your community? Yep, that cute Sheltie that loves to cuddle and fetch also has some nasty stuff in his intestines… stuff that can not only contaminate water supplies, but also result in a fine if you don’t pick it up.  Being responsible isn’t always fashionable, but Bags on Board makes that easier!

While the original Bags on Board gets the job done, some folks wanted something jazzier. This new fun bone designs come in pink or turquoise marble is just the ticket! This design is easy to use because one end unscrews for refill replacement and has a large opening for grabbing hold of the bag.  It also hooks easily onto the leash so there is no need to remember a bag on your way out the door. Features include:

  • Compact dispenser holds 15 large doggie cleanup bags
  • Attaches to any leash
  • Environmentally-friendly
  • Includes 30 bags
