Puppy Training at age 5

Despite the loss of Lady, I went to my first training class at PetSmart yesterday.  I really wasn't up to it but mom was excited to get my training going and it was scheduled before Lady left us.  I was the only adult in the class and all I have to say is, I know I was never that obnoxious at that age.  I mostly laid there until it was my turn to demonstrate "sit" and "watch me".  That first class was mostly for mom, considering I already knew how to sit and watch.  My teacher is taking a special interest in me because of my history of being abused and used as a puppy mill dog.  She is going to help me over come my fear and trust issues.  I will get mom to take some pictures at the next class.  I have to go and help mom learn more about sitting and watching, we have to practice it 5 times a day until my next class on Thursday.

Thanks again for all the words, prayers and support you have shown my mom and I.  Mom is handling the loss better than me but I am handling it better than my Grandma Grace.  She needs more time.

Love you all and Sherman - my mom had better get me down to see you soon or she is going to "watch me".

Another Collie got her wings

It is with extreme sadness that I share the news of Lady's passing this evening.  I asked her to hold on yesterday so that we could have her 14th Birthday Party and she did.  She joins her sister, Lady II, and her Key West buds, Deacon and Essex.

Gracie is a little confused as to why everyone was crying and where Lady is.

Early Birthday Party

Mom decided to move the clocks up to March 7th so Lady could celebrate her 14th Birthday.  Mom has been worried about Lady this week.  She has stopped eating and has even been throwing up what she does eat. 

Mom says she hopes Lady can cross the Rainbow Bridge on her own where she will be greeted with face licks from Lady II, Deacon and essex (all who I never met).  Mom told me that if Lady's health continues to decline she may have to help her over to the other side by the week's end.  I will keep you all posted. 

Happy 14th Birthday Lady, I hope I am as beautiful as you when I turn 14.  I will always love you!
