I stumbled across this picture the other day. It's of Lacey from the first time I met her. You can't tell in this picture, but when we sat down on the couch in the breeder's RV, Lacey jumped up next to me on the couch. We were to have our choice of two Sheltie girls they were placing, and I was a wreck over how I was going to choose. Well, she jumped up, I petted her, the other dog barked, and I knew Lacey was the one for us. Now Lacey will bark up a storm when instigated, but she's perfect for our little family!
I recently stumbled across contact info for her original breeders in Canada (not the ones we got her from). The woman was so happy to know where Lacey was, and she sent me multiple puppy pictures of our girl! Look how cute she was as a puppy! I could just squeeze her!
That woman could have emailed me any pictures of any Sheltie, and I probably wouldn't have known. But look at those eyes! You can tell that they are one in the same!
I have been gone for 5 days. Long days. Don't get me wrong, I had a great time (more to come tomorrow)! But I certainly missed my pup-pup! David took care of her the entire time.
When I got home on Monday night, David let Lacey out right when I pulled up. I so wish you could have seen the excitement in my dog as she ran around me and jumped up in little things I like to call "spinny circles." She. Was. So. Excited.
And since then, she hasn't wanted to let me out of her site. She has wanted to sit in my lap every chance she can, and loves to give me sweet kisses to remind me never to leave again.
She definitely has come a long way since that first photo of us together!
