Dog days of summer This is Lily trying to find some shade!
Mini border collie Charlie is a mini border collie / Aussie . He's really sweet and smart . He knows a lot of tricks and I have no doubt he could be taught to catch frisbees . He's 1 1/2 and he herds really well . Well he herds my other dogs really well . He sleeps inside . I am fostering him for a rescue group . They say he can ring a bell to go outside but we have a doggie door he uses that really well ... I have had him almost a week . We need to find him a forever home ASAP so he can settle into a forever home . He would be great on a farm or someone with land . Think about Charlie when thing about getting a new pet he deserves a chance ..

Solar Power Activated This is a picture of our son's (in the Navy) 14 year old black cat. As soon as the sun comes out, he heads for it and just sprawls out and lays there soaking up the sunshine. The warmth that you can feel from him after a few minutes is unbelievable. So, solar power is activated! And even though he's not a dog, he loves to roll over and get his belly scratched like a dog.
My pet Note his name tag. This is my pet peeve. He is an ideal pet. No walks, no pooper scooper, no food bills, no barking, no fence required, any weather is just fine with him, no grooming and no vet bills. He doesn't come when you call him but he never goes anywhere either. A new coat of paint every couple years and that's it.
