Shiney was roughly 15 years old when we lost her
|White with Black
Shiney was adopted from our friends at
Arizona Border Collie Rescue
After our sudden loss of Bud in August, 2008, our house seemed so very empty and sad without our old soul.
We decided to wait for a while to let our household adjust to Bud's loss and the addition of Fia's daughter, Flirt.
Darren was down in Scottsdale for the Cynosport Games in November, 08. There he ran into the wonderful people of Arizona Border Collie Rescue, Bud's friends.
A phone called followed his visit with them . . . they had an old gal in rescue, should we adopt her? Her name was Nana. I told him sure, let me know what he thought and, if he thought she was a fit in our household, just bring her home as it would save me the drive down there later!
Darren and Nana arrived home 3 days later.
We renamed her Shine. She was such a very old soul, with her loving spirit "shining" through her old soul eyes. She was deaf, but "listened" to hand signals very well.
Shine fit in just fine. She attached herself to our toddler son, Brayden.
We owe so much to the wonderful people of ABCR for allowing Bud and Shine to enrich our lives. They are no longer friends, but are our extended family.
God only allowed us one year with Shine, but she was loved and is dearly missed.
