Shadow is a wonderful 8 year old Tri Color female
collie that is fully vetted, spayed, and
She is a larger collie (taller), and about 10 lbs
overweight. Otherwise, she looks healthy, is
very well adjusted, and basically your typical happy
home collie. Her vet records suggest good
health as well.
Shadow is used to living in a multiple dog
household, loves people, and doesn't react to the
She prances around like a lady - very delicate and
soft. She knows many commands as well and has
been through obedience classes.
On this beautiful, crisp sunny
morning in northern Minnesota, Shadow greeted
the day with a romp in the meadow with her three
new sisters ~ Nellie, Abby and Jessica!!
With the bright sun, filtering
through the trees, this playful quartet began
their workday with what collies (and 1 black
lab) do best - PLAY!! Running at full speed,
stretching out in long strides, they raced

"What do you mean, time to go
in! I have only just begun to explore! But then
maybe a little breakfast would taste good about

So following breakfast, and
after a little begging on their part, the
"girls" again went outside, this time taking a
leisurely stroll around the yard, as Jessica led
the way. She wasted no time in showing Shadow
the well traveled deer paths, but best of all ~
Nellie didn't want her to miss those squirrel
Now they are back inside, all
four supposedly taking a short nap, seemingly to
fall asleep to the sounds of soft classical
music. I am thinking, however, that all of those
twitching ears are a sign, that none of them are
So began SHADOW'S first day
with her new family, in her FOREVER HOME, here
on Glacier Ridge, in northern Minnesota.
Thanks so much to all of you,
who have worked so hard to help us bring Shadow
home. And collie hugs and kisses to Kim ~ from
SHADOW and JESSICA!!
