Happy Chanukah 2021!!


Yep, it's spelled differently on the collage than on the header of the blog, (I prefer the spelling with the letter "C").

To those who celebrate, enjoy your "eight crazy nights!!!"

Happy FIRST Gotcha Day to our Crazy Levi! (Rowdy)

 A year ago today a LARGE 9 and a half week old bundle of FUR joined our family!!! Suffice it to say our life as we knew it, would NEVER be the same!

Today I am sharing three collages that show Levi then and now, hoping you enjoy them!!

That serious puppy face hasn't changed!! Levi STILL has that serious face!! 





The photo on the top left was one of the first we took of Levi.  (He would give Gene Simmons a run for his money with that tongue!!) The two photos at the bottom of the above collage crack me up. It's hard to believe that at one point Roary and Levi were much closer to being the same size. By the looks of Roary's face on the photo on the right, Roary CLEARLY is laughing off Levi's "top of the charts" Sheltie size.

Levi is one of the most confident, bold, boisterous, clumsy (and at the same time agile, if that makes any sense!) dogs that I have ever known.

He often gets a bad rap. He has the bark of a Doberman, but loves to cuddle like a baby on the couch. Because he is much larger than the average Sheltie, some people think that Levi is older than his 14 months, thus they have much higher  behavior expectations.

Levi LOVES to make noise. He can't play with a toy without climbing on top of a crate or the couch where he  watches with joy as he flings the toy to the ground with just enough force to make the crashing toy sound loud and abrasive. Speaking of toys, he HAS to play with whatever he has right in front of our faces, Levi LOVES having an audience.

His other current LOVES are Dad and Mom, his beloved bully sticks, (we ALWAYS have to keep some extras around), his brother Roary (although Levi has a strange way of showing his love for him), his Aunt Judy and Uncle Bill,

His Aunt Nancy

And, one of his ALL TIME FAVORITES, who he loves with all of his wild and crazy Sheltie-self, his trainer......Dylan.

Levi is a super quick learner (when he wants to be) and is extremely intelligent. He is brave, fearless and if he greats you in a wild and crazy way, it is more likely than not, that it is his way of showing you that he is happy to see you and he is CERTAIN that you are happy to see him as well.

Happy Happy First Gotcha Day to our loving, wild and crazy Levi (Rowdy) definitely march to your own drummer, we often feel as if you actually came to us from another planet, (but he actually came from Ohio where his amazing breeder, Sue, of Greyfyre Shelties, has become a dear friend, Sheltie advisor and confidante!).......but when we get those famous cuddles and Sheltie kisses, we wouldn't have it ANY other way!! We LOVE YOU LEVI!!!!!
