All in the Family


Border Collie / Labrador Retriever
January 11, 2008

Tuna's first adoptive parent was my uncle. She has quite a story, so here it is: One day my uncle was driving on the highway in Alaska, and was horrified to see the car in front of him slow down, and toss out a little pup (Tuna) on the side of the road. My uncle, being the kind-hearted sort that he is, came to Tuna's rescue. Tuna and my Uncle traveled from Alaska to California until they got to our house.At first, my uncle had no intention of finding Tuna a new home. However, as my uncle is a bachelor who was traveling at the time, he was convinced by the family that we had a much better home to offer the growing pup. Tuna's new family has a couple of kids and plenty of room to play. Tuna loves her Uncle, and she's so glad that he wanted the best for her. Tuna has the sweetest disposition, loving everyone to the extent that nearly every guest wants to take her home with them! Tuna's favorite activities include: playing in the creek, swimming, cuddling (She thinks she's a lap-dog!), dinner-time, catching snowballs, sleeping on her back (with her feet in the air!) snoring, and standing on her head. She has some peculiar habits such as snorting at people to tell them that she loves them, and whenever there is fun to be had, she will usually run off to the other part of the house and come back with her toy, just so that "Kong" won't be left out! Tuna loves her two feline sisters immensely, and would love to cuddle and play with them, but they always act a bit standoffish toward her... She'll keep trying! - written with my Mom's help!

Tuna is a sweetheart. I am a winter person so, of course, I love the photos of Tuna jumping after snowflakes and romping in the snow. Very nice profile and she knows how to have fun. Good story Hugs From Elizabeth & Miss Katie =O)

Hi Tuna, you are so sweet I'm not surprised everyone wants to be your best friend. You can put me in that list as well please.

Tuna is lovely. And she looks just like I would think of of her two part breed. With maybe just a bit more Lab than Collie. Love your snowy pictures, and i bet Tuna loves the snow as well, faith has only seen snow once as we just dont get it here much. Lots of Ear licks from my Two, to you and Tuna.

I love your dog. She reminds me of my Scotti unfortunately has been gone for sometime now. If it wasn't for having four cat's I'd get me another dog. Your pictures were great Thanks for sharing. Tonya from Ky.

Bless you both for rescuing beautiful Tuna, and giving her a new, happy forever home. If only all discarded dogs had such guardian angels to guide them. She's a special girl, and I hope you have many wonderful years with her.

She is beautiful! By the way Tuna, in my opinion, thinking you are a lap dog makes you a lap dog, (even if some people wish you weren't.)
