There’s no such thing as the perfect dog
People will say to you
And when it comes to Shelties –
Boy, is that ever true!
 
Some are too big and some too small
Some hardly have any hair at all
Some are too bold and some too shy
Some have a short tail or a big round eye
 
  Crooked legs and splayed out toes
Prick ears and hound ears and odd coloured nose –
The perfect Sheltie just can’t be made
But here’s one thing that’s really great:
 
   To be perfect in their owners’ eyes
Shelties only need one part
And every Sheltie I ever met
Had that loving Sheltie heart.

This Sheltie is being so gentle…what a sweetheart.  Just more proof why we all love the breed!

OK, so the puppy isn’t a Sheltie, but its cute!

A heartfelt “Thank You” to all our Sheltie Nation members & visitors.  This site wouldn’t be what it is without all of you & your wonderful dogs!

We are taking a well earned couple of days off here at Sheltie Nation…we will be back with more Sheltie fun December 31st! But in the meantime, be sure to keep sending us your photos, inspirational stories & Sheltie news!

May you all have a safe and happy holiday season filled with lots of Sheltie joy!
