Wow - amazing what a good grooming will do - he's adorable!  He'll probably settle in just fine and want to cuddle lots!

I realized today that I hadn't told everyone about Flash passing away this fall.  She made it to the wonderful age of 17 but not to her favorite holiday, Thanksgiving.  Friends and neighbors helped me hold a memorial service with lots of pizza and stories about her remarkable intelligence--well, she DID have a professor teaching her!.  My nephews were here at Thanksgiving and their tribute is that both of them adopted border collies because of Flash.

My other dogs, Pip and Val miss her off and on.  Pip is the border collie/ Aussie mix, now 7, and Val, the German Shepherd, was 2 in May.  Six years ago, Flash and Pip found Val's father, a prize winner who had been stolen from his owner, in a field near my home.  Val was a gift since she was so small that she wasn't wanted as a police dog.  This field was where we recently spread Flash's ashes.

Although I was there when you told some of us, it still makes me feel sad for you, shock.  Flash was an incredible dog, and more than that a friend, a companion and a part of your family for so long.  She was lucky to have an owner like you. My condolences on your loss.

Freddie

Flash would be laughing about being called a boy once more;  every dog I've ever had was/is female.  I got Flash because the twin boys she was bought for let older kids feed her beer and pizza when their parents weren't around.  Flash was nicely buzzed the night a friend brought her to me and I made sure she never saw a beer again--pizza was a favorite of mine as well, so we enjoyed it in moderation.  Pip was a fam dog, about 6 months old, when her bachelor owner was killed and a neighbor called to see if I would take her.  She loves it when I wear the John Deere hat I got from my mower dealership.  And Val was a gift, likely because I turned down a hefty monetary reward after rescuing her dad.  At 50 lb she is small for a shepherd, but she could have been a drug dog instead of a police K-9;  her breeder just wanted me to have her since Flash was getting so old.
