Fergie Fetch-A Sheltie at Play

Fergie-a four and a half month old red sheltie is quickly adapting to Colorado after arriving
from Florida via Kentucky.

Fetching the little pink bunny. The all important litlle pink bunny was the toy handed to me when I received Fergie. It is her first play toy and her favorite.

Learning is easy when you are young. She sits when asked to sit, fetches and stays. She relieves herself outside or her puppy pen- nowhere else. Not bad for 4 1/2 months.

Not letting go of the pink bunny.. actually she does. She fetches her toy and drops it in front of the thrower.
Fergie knows to drop the toy in order to get someone to throw it for her. She brings it to your feet for consideration. Next up, agility training for coordination and flexibility.

Fergie's Blog Part 2- At Home In Colorado

With 7 inches of snow on the ground and single digit high temps you would think small sheltie pups would not like the snow. Not the case here.

Face Off- Fergie thinks she is a cat and Merlin thinks he is a dog. They do play together but Merlin is laying down cat law.

Fergie in her puppy pen after cleaning and toy organizing. She is waiting to be fed. Guess who is the entertainment.

Fergie and the dirty sock. With frigid temps outside-that means creative puppy playing inside.

I am so looking forward to Spring. If not Spring, then at least some warm and dry weather. Maybe Utah.

Fergies Blog- A Little Red Sable Sheltie from Kentucky- Raisin in the Sun

Fergie aka Raisin in the Sun

Fergie is the culmination of a lot of hard work-looking for an animal that has soundness. She is a Shetland Sheepdog from a strong line of sturdy little red dogs. I am pleased to have her in the family.

Cape Canaveral National Seashore

When my mother was a little girl, she grew up at Cape Canaveral. My mothers family lived in the old lighthouse at Cape Canaveral. I have many mementos from her early childhood fishing and crabbing in the Indian and the Banana Rivers. I also have old pictures of the Cape prior to WWII.
Going back there reminds me of my Florida roots which extend south from the Cape to Miami.
