Great to hear from you!  Sounds like the move was perfect timing.  I'm so happy for both of you and the dogs to have the life you've dreamed of.  And a house too!  Fantastic! Pleased

The only thing is your photos aren't showing up.  Confused  I know photobucket has changed for some people but so far they still have mine coming through.

Glad to hear Tako is doing better on his meds.  I know what you mean about those herbal remedies and the dogs not liking them.  I have to grind stuff up and fill veggie capsules to get Kasha to take hers.  But even that can be a trick to do.

Tako's birthday has come and gone so a Happy Birthday to him!  Pleased  The time has just been flying by around here.  Although spending this past week with the flu bug catching up to us, that's wasted some beautiful spring weather.  All of a sudden we can open windows and actually hear birds singing.

Hey everyone,
   It has been a while since I've posted and a lot has changed. Star, my first eskie, passed away about 5 years ago now. We ended up getting Shelby Grace from a breeder 4.5 years ago! She wasn't doing well living in PA and neither were we. She was afraid of people and did not like dogs. She also kept giving herself gastro every time something minor changed. My husband and I were not doing well finding jobs in our career fields and the apartment we were in was a rat-infested dump, since where we lived in PA was not dog friendly. My husband worked 2 crappy full-time jobs to make it by and I had a job I would cry to have to go to. It was awful, living there.

    So we decided to risk everything, sold everything we had (except Shelby!) took a thumbtack and threw it on the map and decided that is where we would move! Well, it landed on Greenville, South Carolina. It has been amazing for us and for Shelby, by far. It has been 3 years since we have moved here and let just say that within in those three years, my husband got his dream job as an officer. I am working on my Masters degree and own my own business. We bought our first home too! Shelby is becoming people friendly and she loves other dogs now! We also got her 3 other siblings (see in photos!) She has not had gastro since we left PA behind. We also took a major road-trip to Kansas down to Galveston, TX and back through New Orleans and Shelby of course came with! We got a hotel in Bollix MS, at hard rock cafe and it was 1500 SQ FT! Shelby was in heaven (see photo of her in the tub). Last Halloween, Shelby and Lassie went as a cop and robber and they won the costume contest and was even on the news! So there are photos from that!

My collie Lassie does agility and she was out one week after having surgery so we took Shelby. Shelby had never seen or done agility before and let me tell you, she did every single thing, perfectly. The trainer asked me what level of agility she was in and I said this is her first time and she looked at me shocked! I think dogs talk because I cannot explain how she did everything so perfectly, like she has been formally trained!

Enjoy the photos Smile Hello everyone! I've missed this board, its where I learned about eskies and fell in love!

Steve, Trudee was Rev's sister. 
Yep, that's what I was thinking but couldn't remember for certain.

Trudee was the sweetest dog and I wish we'd had her longer.  She was never demanding and for the most part see seemed to be very content.  Often we'd go out of our way to make sure she wasn't overpowered by the other dogs.  Her favorite things were her bones and chewing ice.  She'd gather the bones up and stash them from the other dogs.  And when someone got ice, no matter where in the house she was, she'd come running.  It's going to be awhile now when I get ice that I don't expect to see her come into the kitchen.

In November we found a tumor in her mouth.  It would bleed and the vet treated it with different antibiotics. To remove it surgically would have been really invasive and we just didn't want to put her through that.  We would go every Saturday to the vet.  She did really well until the last couple of weeks when she ended up with kidney issues.  The vet was also fond of her and when it was time, he almost cried.

We got her urn back today and we have hers next to Little Boy on the mantle with a couple of her bones.  Randy printed a picture of her and Little Boy displayed above them.

Thanks Cindy. Nice to hear from you too. Miss so many of you guys who used to be so active on the board.

Kooza is very active/alert as well. He has such a heavy gorgeous coat. I love this. I have not taken many pics lately... comes to the same at some point. hihi Nuuk and Kooza lost weight and hair which I guess is normal with age. Nuuk who used to have a heavy gorgeous tail is just now  almost rat-like. hihi

No plan to travel this coming summer, unfortunately. We have had too many expenses (house repairs/renos, pets, dental for us humans). Luckily we have a seasonal campground site reserved and a nice place to go every weekend for 6 months. Nice to be away on weekends.

I don't think I'll have dogs either when they all cross the bridge. As much as I love dogs, I feel I'm at the crossroad in my life where I don't really want to "limit" my things. We are retiring (young) in December 2020-March 2021 and plan on traveling some. I find that it is easier with cats to be a way 18 hours than dogs. Same for having a sitter for cats. Much easier.

Hi Helene!

I came here to look for just this sort of post from you. I'm happy to see it!
I can't believe Nuuk is still so incredibly active. Her energy and personality make me smile. I'm glad Takoda is hanging in there and faring well despite his health issues. It really is a delicate balance with medications, isn't it? Especially with the babies who can't talk and tell us what they are feeling. You get to play detective a little bit. And Kooza, is he still the fuzzball he was when he was younger? Has his coat changed at all? I always enjoyed they videos of him (and the rest of your gang) in action.
Do you have any trips planned for this year? I presume you still have your RV?

We still have no furbabies and likely never will again. I love to read about everyone else's life with the breed I loved so well. We now have one child in Virginia- about to have their second child- and two of our kids and one grandchild here in New Jersey. My younger child got married in Texas in October. We/I plan to travel a lot to visit those who are further away. I was nursing full-time and changed to per diem a little over a year in so I could have the flexibility to visit the kids when possible.

Please keep checking in here with glimpses in to your life. I enjoy them!

Cindy/Blessed Woman

Steve, Trudee was Rev's sister.  Here's the page that shows her siblings.  Ranger passed last year.  I just heard from his owners earlier this year.  Twister is 15 now and still going strong.  And we lost Foxy quite a few years ago to a car accident when she ran out on a road.  I don't know how Dream is doing.  Maybe Rebecca will come on and let us know.

Nina, yes I know you and Randy gave Trudee such a great home.  You've posted a lot of pictures of her and I saved all of them.
