This time, the message came via Facebook:
|Roo-dog meets Santa Jim|
"There's a sheltie here, and she needs a new home. Can you help?"
Her former owners love her a lot, but needed to move her to a new home. So Santa Jim and I loaded up in the truck and headed over the pass to meet our new dog.
|clear-and-wet roads through the Pass, hurrah!|
The weather was cold but cooperative. A minor miracle. We picked her up at a central meeting-spot, and then took her and Luna for a walk in a nearby cemetary before heading back to the Wet Side of the mountains.
|Playing in cemetaries: quiet, with no traffic|
Although Will moved out a few weeks ago, he couldn't wait for the weekend to come visit the new family member.
|All the kids on one couch|
As with all new dogs (and children) at Haiku Farm, she will be attending Puppy Boot Camp for the next few weeks, logging plenty of miles on local trails

|She chases balls, but not sticks. Who knew?|
and at local parks and beaches.
Of course, there are also games we can play at home
Roo is a retrieving dog. The other Floofs, not so much.
It's still pretty fun, though.
Especially for the ones who like to bark!
