Introducing Daisy...

Hi all just a quick blog to keep you all updated on the latest news, well, this weekend Trent I went back up to Toowoomba to visit my parents in their lovely new home... So whilst up there for our long weekend trip we figured Sunday would be our “adventure” day, so we set off for a day of fun (well for me it was, poor Trent taking me places is like taking a child; I tend to get SUPER excited sometimes!) Anyway after a fun day of adventures (a blog to come – way to many pictures for this one LOL), we headed back home. Then we saw a tan kelpie running down the highway, so we pulled over and he came over to us, we put him in the back of the Ute and drove off. It was a fairly rural area that we were driving through along a highway so we stopped in at some local farms – after 3 attempts the last one knew who he was and said they would return him to the fella that lost him. So on we drive and about 45 minutes from home, what is sitting in the middle of the opposite lane, a young pretty border collie! (This became slightly awkward as I jokingly told Trent the next dog we find we could keep...). So we stop and put her in the back and once again stop to ask some local people if they recognise her. No one did. So we drove home (to Mum & Dads anyway) with her. Trent and Dad (who was not impressed with us bringing home a stray) made a make shift shelter for her for the cold Toowoomba night. On Monday morning I called the local council in the suburb where we found her and left my number – no one has reported her missing. We took her to the vet today to see if she is micro-chipped and she is. But they can’t seem to find her details in the registry; they think maybe she was micro-chipped in N.S.W? Our local vet clinic is looking into it further for us. If they can’t find her home we won’t be terribly devastated, she is a really nice dog and we would be more than happy to keep her. When we found her she was pretty dirty and had a fair few fleas, so today was all about baths, flea treatments, worming, brushing and presents (a snazzy new collar and a bone!). But wow, she is so pretty & smart & gentle. A very well behaved Border collie. So currently our Duke is a little over whelmed with the fact that he has a “girl friend”, she isn’t de-sexed & we are hoping they don’t make babies (yes puppies are adorable) but a border collie X German Shepherd would be an interesting mix – a bored shepherd! It would be a cross much too smart for its own good!

Here are some pictures of our latest addition... Introducing Miss Daisy - like Daisy Duke... Yes, I know I probably shouldn’t have named her considering she maybe going back to her owner. But Daisy really suits her (even the vet said so)! She is such a kind natured dog. So for now, we like to think of her as a kind of like a present from God or the universe (whatever you believe in) - we did a good deed by finding the other dog and getting him back home, maybe this is our karma? Maybe. Or maybe we just attract stray dogs? Whatever it is we are please to have her for now...
"Rusty" - the people told us his name, the first dog we found...
Saying goodbye to "Roadie" the name we named him (he was running along the road)
Introducing Miss Daisy...
both my 2 boys are in total love with her...
She is a working border collie... So she likes rounding up the goats!
Stalking the goats...
Duke likes her so much he even shares his bed with her...
