Andy, I can see that all that hair makes you look huge, but isn't it a magnificent coat. I know from past experiences that you will be a very loyal companion.

Awesome Andy! He is really beautiful. All that hair must be hard to manage, but definitely worth it! Belly rubs and kisses on the nose from me. Best of luck!!

Andy is beautiful what a wonderful coat . I fell in love with them over 25 years ago and have never wanted any other dog since. They have a way of stealing your heart. They are the perfect companion.

He looks identical to my wonderful "Riley" that we had the joy of having for 13 yrs. I miss him terribly!!!

What a festive scarf he's wearing. And he obiviously likes flowers too. A sweetie for sure.

I like the way Andy sits with his back feet off the ground! Maybe if his bottom were shaved, he could sit flat. (just kidding!)

One of my most cherished photos is one of my husband as a toddler, in a pen of Sheltie puppies. In a later home movie, the mother to those puppies is showing him up at a game of Wiffle Ball. Smart dogs, so beautiful! I made sure he got to see Andy, who is not to be missed!

Andy is quite handsome. There is a Sheltie that lives behind me and he tries to herd one of my dogs behind the privacy fence, which infuriates my dog and I have several bite and chewed places as a result. Hugs and kisses.

Thank you all for all the nice comments on my beloved boy! We live on the East Coast and we do get really cold winters which we BOTH LOVE. During the hot summer days, I keep Andy indoors as much as possible as we have central air conditioning. Andy steals that too...we will suddenly notice the dining room getting "stuffy" only to find Andy is on top of the floor register hogging all the cold air, lol! I blocked half of it off and let him have the other half. His coat is a lot of work, but when a shelties hair is cut, it can grow back really bad. We found this out when he had to have a cruciate ligament repair. The hair on his right knee/leg looks terrible; like straw. I've conditioned it, and tried everything to get the silky texture back, but can't seem to get it.

Hi Andy! what a good boy!
Aug 24, 2007 sylvanbliss
sandrahender, how long has it been since Andy's surgery? How's he getting along now? That's a serious opperation! Keeping him from running around must be very hard.

He has such a glorious coat, maybe with time, the shaved area will regrow the glossy hair. You'd hardly notice one leg with that fab mane! I want to brush him and play with his hair!

Man, that is a [b]lot[/b] of fur! :)

Growing up, I had a supposedly purebreed Sheltie who grew to 30+ lbs! But she still had the same sweet Sheltie nature. Such a great breed!

Sylvanbliss, Andy's surgery was a year ago this past April. When he first did it, the vet treated him with just Rimadyl and ice/heat treatments. Then, two months after he tore his right cruciate ligament, he tore the left one as well! Now he had TWO bad knees. So he had the right one repaired, and the left one wasn't nearly as bad. Once he recovered from his surgery, the other knee got much better and he didn't need to have that one repaired, which the vet and I were both relieved. You're right...that is a serious surgery...and a BIG surgery; very complicated. The vet who did it is a specialist in doing knees...he does all the knee surgeries at the clinic I go to. Andy had to have a Duragesic patch of 75mgs. applied to him 3 days before the surgery, with an ace to hold it in place, and the day of surgery he was given 15mgs. of Morphine before the surgery. This was to make sure he had good pain control after he awoke. When I took him home, he had to be carried to the car, I had the backseat turned into a mini ambulance for him, lol. At home, I made up a hospital bed for him on the floor in his favorite spot, and made a bed for myself right next to him and slept on the floor next to him throughout his recovery. He couldn't walk and needed someone there to get him water or take him to the potty. I used the towel method for the potty. It broke my heart to see him unable to walk, run or play at only 2 years of age...but I turned the whole thing over to God and about 5 months after his surgery, I was taking all the dogs out to the back yard...and suddenly noticed that Andy was RUNNING to keep up! I was so thankful, it made me cry. Today he is running, jumping and playing like he did before he hurt his knees, and I thank God for all of it, and of course my vet for his expert skills. He too thanks God for Andy's great recovery. He was so happy to see Andy run; he is a wonderful vet.

I am a 1st time sheltie owner, and I want more LOL.. I love my laci girl she is the best dog I have ever owned.... here she is as the grownup puppy in Jan 2007 m/index...

I see that Andy loves that ball just as much as Laci, she could play ball all day... Good luck w/him and god bless him..

"What do you mean it's not my ball? It's in my mouth, isn't it?"

Oh, Andy, you sure are one beautiful sheltie and from what your Mom has written, you've come through your surgeries fine which is great to hear. If you live in the NE, I can visualize you running around wildly in the snow. Beware of those snowballs though....... they tend to melt once you hold them in your mouth.

Long life and happiness to all and no bad hair days!

Adorable! Absolutely adorable!

Oh my lord. . what a beautiful sheltie! I have two of my own (both sable with white), and I too had never owned a sheltie before. They are my precious babies, and I see that Andy is yours, too! I have two females, and they both love the laser pointer as well. .one wants to kill it and eat it, and the other is afraid of it. Anyway, you have an adorable boy there, and I hope you have many more fun and enjoyable times together!
Aug 25, 2007 sandrahender
Watching Andy chase that laser is so much fun..he gets MAD at it trying to "pick it up" and you should see him when I place the laser on his PAW...hahaha! He goes NUTS! All I have to say is "red dot" and he and my Brittany spring into action looking for it and waiting to chase it.

I have a Sheltie also. There is a really cool web site to get on to and also they will send you a daily article about Shelties to your inbox. I love it ! it is called, Sheltie Nation.
Have a lot of fun with your sweetie, My Dasher is such a barker also. it's a trait of them
Aug 28, 2007 sandrahender
I will find that website, and thank you Tracy! I totally fell in love with Shelties when I first saw Andy. He is my first Sheltie but I know he won't be the last.
