Today held some nice surprises...and day 2 of the challenge

Today two things happened that made me happy and proud.  My daughter was hired three weeks ago as a full time veterinary assistant, her first full time job.  And today she helped save the lives of two huskies who had fallen through the ice.  When the dogs were brought to the hospital, my daughter was ready with warm towels, and dried their coats with dog hair dryers, and warmed them up.  When they arrived they were hypothermic, their temperatures were in the low 90's.  I'm very proud of her role in assisting the veterinarians in saving these dogs.



And then tonight we went to handling class, and Kia worked with little Tate.  This was the first time we had seen Tate since he left us on January 3rd.  He was so happy to see us, and kept running back to me.  It was so sweet to see that he hasn't forgotten us.  This was his first handling class, and he did very good.  I was very proud of our little man!  Last night my mother fell again, and this time she broke her pelvis, so we needed some good to balance out the bad.

 



And today is the 2nd day of the three day Quote Challenge.  So here we go...

Our new friend over at the Lucky collie blog has nominated us in the 3 day quote challenge.

A new blogger challenge...Day 1

Love is...as endless as the ocean.


For this Sunday's "Love Is,"  we are featuring our first three collies, Abby, Lad and Holly.  Lad left us too soon, we lost him 4 years ago when he was just 7 years old.  But he is still in our hearts, as love is truly endless.

Looks like we made it! (Flashback Friday)

In May 2012 we started the collie blog, and today, we are celebrating our 300th post!  We couldn't decide what our 300th post should feature, so we decided to take a stroll down memory lane...

Some of you may be visiting our blog for the first time, and some of you may be returning visitors.  If you have stopped by our blog before, then you have met each of our collies, through their individual and group posts.  You may have read our posts where we shared homeless dogs, who were hoping to find their Forever homes on Tuesday Tails.




We have shared videos and pictures of our collies as they pursued both dog shows and titles.  And we will continue to share the ups and downs of the dog show life in our future posts.




The collies have shared many drool-worthy recipes and fun product reviews, and they took you along on their scenic hikes around New England.  And we love sharing our favorite dog books and movies, and hope you will share yours with us!



And we also shared some important collie health topics here and here, and also here.  Please feel free to share these topics, as they effect not only collies but other dog breeds as well.



We have shared so much with all of you, with these glimpses of our lives with our beloved collies, and we can't wait to share so much more.  Thank you for visiting us, for sharing your stories with us, and for being our friends!  We can't wait until we are celebrating our 500th post with you!

Scarlett is sure you'll agree...

On a Winter's day...







Sometimes the best way to enjoy our limited amount of sunshine, 
is to take a walk with your best friend.
