Shetland Sheepdog

Miss Sasha is my first ever experience with a Shetland Sheepdog. I am a high school teacher, and was walking to the office to get something after school when I saw one of my students standing in the hallway with the cutest puppy I had ever seen. She was mine from first sight. I bought her that day, and she has been the sweetest, most loving little girl you will ever meet. She is a bit shy (that's just the Sheltie way), but she will love you to death after she gets comfortable with you. Even at 7 years old, all she wants to do is play, play, play! She is super smart, which translates into her being super sneaky when she wants to be. She quickly learned as a puppy to not chew on anything when we were around, or chew on anything that we could see. . .so we ended up finding all sorts of our stuff chewed up only after we moved furniture, looked under beds, etc.! She only took 3 weeks to house train, and has been nothing but a little loveball the entire time we have had her. We had a bit of a scare with her 2 years ago, when we discovered she had bladder stones and was two days away from going into kidney failure. Her surgery went well, and Sasha returned to her loving self quite quickly. She has brought nothing but joy into my life, and has convinced me that Shelties are the only breed for me. Update: We lost our sweet Miss Sasha on May 15th, 2014. She had surgery again for more bladder stones and never recovered. She will always be my first and best puppy.

Sasha is beautiful, and I am so glad that she recovered from her surgery! I love your pictures of Sasha and Emma together! And, I understand your love for Shelties. Both of our family's dogs have been Shelties (although our first passed away before getting the second), and, although their personalities are very different, they have been the most wonderful dogs!
