Twilight and Eclipse Join the Pack ~ Adopted!

Twilight and Eclipse Join the Pack ~ Adopted!

Twilight and Eclipse are two female Border Collie babies that are coming to us from Chilton County Humane Society by our Becky Harshman. They will arrive here July 24th and will be transported by Leonard. I’m anxious to meet them. Our beautiful Lindsey has offered to foster them. What FUN!

Make sure you check out their photo album!

July 24th Update:

The puppies have arrived! Thanks to the efforts of numerous volunteers including Leonard and Chris, the puppies arrived safely at Gisele’s house this morning. They are beautiful! Only about three or four months old, they are 15 pounds of happy border collie joy! We’re off to the vet’s on Monday to get microchipped and then they’ll be ready to go to their forever homes. I’m so excited about these two girls. Imagine going from a cement block kill shelter to a home with green grass and abundant love! More photos to come!

If you are interested in meeting one of the puppies, please read about our adoption process.

July 27 Update:

Eclipse and Twilight are a joy. They are so happy to be able to run around and play with my other foster puppies. And they think my basset mixes, Ralph and Gus, are the cat’s meow. I have posted lots of photo on their photo album, so make sure you check it out!

July 28th Update:

Twilight has been adopted. She is off to live with Allen, Ellen and Harvey. They recently lost Heather, their Old English Sheepdog, to cancer of the jaw. It was fast and unexpected. Twilight will not take Heather’s place but will help them start a new chapter in their lives.

July 30th Update:

I was a bit concerned that Eclipse would become depressed when her sister was adopted, but obviously I forgot the natural joy that defines border collies. She is doing great. Having the shepherd and catahoula puppies to play with has made all the difference. They arrived in the same transport as her and they do great together. In fact, Dixie is so fast, she gives Eclipse a run for her money!

One of the things that I have learned about Eclipse is that she is not a hyper border collie. Thank goodness! I rarely hear her bark and when it’s time to rest, she’s good with it. It is so hot outside right now that I don’t like to leave the puppies outside for long and even with that, they usually hang out under the hedge. We go out for 30 minutes, back in for two hours, back out for 30 minutes, back in for two hours, ….. Full throttle play means that they usually sleep for the full two hours. Sweet babies!

Oh, I know what I wanted to tell you: Eclipse is crate trained! When she first arrived, she had no idea about crate training and piddled and pooped in her crate. This is common in shelter dogs. It is one of the things that I really work hard at helping them overcome. And it is why I set my timer to go off every two hours, so that they quickly learn that if they can wait, they won’t have to live in their own filth. Eclipse figured this out fast. And she makes it through the night too, without waking me up to go out during the night. Yeah, I really like her and I think you will too!

31 July Update:

Today Daffy, Eclipse‘s playmate, was adopted by a wonderful family. After she left, Eclipse broke all the house rules and jumped up onto the back of the couch to look out the window. It was as if she was watching to see if her family was coming next. I know she’ll get adopted soon, and into a terrific home. I just hate to see my puppies waiting….

02 August Update:

No more waiting for Eclipse! Today she found her forever home with a wonderful couple, Mike and Susette. Their Kyra, a 16-year-old Cocker Spaniel, passed away last year and Elijah, a Aussie/Husky, has missed his friend. All three of them came to my home and we slowly introduced the different puppies. Oh, it was a hard decision for Mike and Susette, so Elijah made it for them. He clearly liked Eclipse the best! I think he has a thing for the girls!!! So off they went to live happily ever after. And I’m left with a smile on my face!!!
