Hi Lorrie &
pictures of Holly (Princess). These were taken a few months
ago. That's her with our cat, Dacotah. She's since lost her
winter coat and is ready for summer. We're sorry to have
missed you at the Scottish
continues to do well & is loved by everyone who meets her.
Most of all, by us.
We got a note after the holidays from her new family:
We traveled to WI and
IL with Holly for the holidays and she was the hit
everywhere. She did well throughout the extended visits.
Always good-natured, ready to play, and well-behaved.
Everyone loved her! She got to play with several dog
pals, including her two collie cousins in IL. Our
favorite moment was on Christmas Day: after a hard
afternoon playing with collies and kids, she was
completely sacked out in the middle of my mother's
living room, surrounded by my nieces and nephews
watching videos. We are pretty sure she had a smile on
This moment was only
second to Holly meeting a black lab named Samantha (my
in-laws rescue dog) - Samantha wasn't too happy to have
another dog around and was being a bit aggressive -
Holly sat down next to Samantha and put her paw up onto
Samantha's shoulder trying to be friends. Amazing dog!
We took her with us to
Grand Marais, bought her some dog booties, and hit the
snowshoeing trails with her. She did wonderfully. Back
at home she continues to do great. The cats are getting
comfortable with her and she is very nice to them. We
love to take her to a nearby off-leash are (fenced in)
to watch her play with other dogs - she just has a great
time and everyone is charmed by her good looks. She'll
be going to obedience training next week to sharpen her
skills with coming and staying.
All in all, she's
exceeded our expectations and we hope that she knows
that she's finally home forever. Thanks so much for
bringing this wonderful dog to us.
Princess is a 16 month
old glistening and rich colored Sable female. She is
well mannered, fine boned, and petite (45 lbs). Princess
loves people, children, other dogs, and even cats! She
has a sweet and playful disposition. Housebroken, crate
trained, walks very well on a lead and rides wonderfully
in a car. She gives gentle smoochies and let my 14 1/2
yr. old cat groom her face as I was trimming & brushing
her. She sure is a beautiful shade of sable - almost
like an autumn day - glistening! Typical sweet collie
disposition & quite intelligent!
Holly was fostered in Chetek,
