I must be nostalgic this week.  So in memory of Bentley (the second Sheltie in my life) & his birthday, I am posting what I think is THE cutest photo of him. I took this photo in June 1988, when I snuck up on my dad & little Bentley taking a nap on the floor with my mom.Bentley1Bentley was such a butterball at 8 weeks.  We debated naming him something like Bear (or jokingly “wide load”), but with Shelties, we felt you really need a more dignified sounding name.  Bentley grew up to be a *tad* over-sized :)  … weighing over 50 lbs (& he wasn’t overweight!)

Miss you Bentley (aka: Bennie Boo)

The snuggle Sheltie submissions are coming in fast & furious. “Of course!” you say – everyone loves to snuggle with a Sheltie!  Case in point:Sarah_bowsThank you Tim for this super cute photo of Sarah & Bows!

Sometimes, all we need is someone who loves us for who we are.353243113_58197348faThanks pihlaja for the inspiration for our newest category…”Snuggle Shelties” :)

Oh Peggy, I’m sure you have been most definitely nice.
I am such an innoncent, poor little girl…I deserve many holiday presents this year!
Gitta3Danke Tanja!

Shelties make great snuggling partners. (1-2-3, exhale)  Ah, doesn’t life seem so much better now?
