It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

A Dog of Three Names finds his Home

This sweet little Corgi-Border Collie mix had a bit of a rocky time finding his real Home. Coming into foster care early in December from an over-crowded shelter, "Sam" stayed with us for a couple of weeks.

Almost immediately "Sam" just wasn't right for him and he became "Zippy." With a good dose of the Border Collie personality, this little guy is definitely very Zippy!

Joining another foster family during the Christmas-New Years Holiday period, Zippy made more friends, but this still wasn't Home.

On January 6 Zippy struck it rich. He found his family, a lovely couple with just the right experience for an active fellow like this, and some land for him to run - perfect! 

 And now, he has his third name. In fact he is carrying on a family tradition. "Ernie" was the name of his new owner's grandfather - an avid dog lover. We're told that he'd be very honored.

Happy New Year Ernie! You waited awhile, but you found a Terrific Home!
