My parents recently picked up their new puppy, Riley.

A little shameless family promotion on SN today! :)

Sheltie puppy Welcome to the family little peanut!


“Greetings, Sheltie Nation. Happy New Year!

My mom got me all dressed up and sent me to work. My job – to get you to share photos of your favorite Sheltie(s) in unusual, cute and fun situations.  (Just like me. Aren’t I cute?)

(Email your photos to [email protected]. Be sure to include your name and your pup’s name too!)

See you here in 2017!

Smooches, Teddy”

Teddy says: “I’ll take one of those buffalo wings, thanks.”

teddyfood Our Teddy is a tiny morsel himself. :)

Are you smack in the middle of The Blizzard of 2015?

If your Sheltie ventures outside or is hunkered down by the fire inside, we’d love to see ‘em!


(A frosted Teddy says, “stay safe, everyone!”)

tobypuppy From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for your prayers, private notes and posted comments on Sheltie Nation about our loss of little Toby. It is comforting to know there is an entire community of Sheltie people who know and feel the way we do about our dogs. Each and every comment has meant the world to my family and I.

We have had a hard time adjusting to life without Toby’s sweet and sunny presence. Even Tyler has been grieving for him (they were best buddies), but we are trying hard to make him feel better and give him extra attention.

We will start back up with the daily posts tomorrow, but a few more happy memories of beautiful Toby.




tobyI’ll be taking a bit of a break this week from SN. Last evening we had to say goodbye to Toby. He had started to experience heart failure back in May but with many drugs, he was able to come out of it. Sadly his heart started to fail again this week. It was time.

Thank you Toby for almost 10 wonderful years. You were the sweetest and most beautiful Sheltie I’ve ever known. You never met a stranger and everyone who met you wanted to take you home for themselves. You will be very much missed by a lot of people.

I love you, handsome.
