Little Cookie was a rescue dog, taken from a bad situation and very ill and emotionally scarred. It has taken a lot of love, care and patience, but she now adores us as much as we adore her.
Renny was found as a tiny wee puppy sitting all alone in a big dog cage at a stock feed shop. Couldn't leave him there, could we? Well, Renn has a love of sleeping and being petted. We THINK he is the boss of the household, but actually Renn KNOWS it! Cookie is a gentle little soul and we treat her like a princess. She just loves feeling safe and cared for at long last.
We don't care that we get mocked at times for spoiling the 'kids'. They certainly appreciate it! We also have a beautiful caramel Border Collie who has the absolute best nature in the world. Also rescued from a bad situation, she brings us much happiness, and she is also finally coming into her own and being the dog she was meant to be at long last. My only complaint would be that we can't make her understand that she doesn't have to pathetically grateful for any scrap of attention any more, as we are the lucky ones!

They are adorable! I have two hard-done-by boys too, but Renn and Cookie are just too cute laying there! lol
Great story, I think all of you are lucky!
Beautiful Pair of "Loveys", who are lucky to have you folks, and I'm sure you feel that you are the lucky ones. Our animals have a way of loving that far surpasses all human knowledge.
Would love to see your Border Collie too when you have time. Thanks for sharing them with us Vicki.

Oh bless you for being such a wonderful person and giving these deserving doggies a safe home! I have a lab/chow mix named Toby adopted from a shelter 8 years ago. Toby had 3 homes and lived a good deal of his life in the shelter before he came to us. It took many months for him to come out of his shell, but he did and now is a wonderful, sweet and happy boy. Nothing makes me happier than to see him prance around with a toy in his mouth. Nothing better in this world, no love better!
