  1. I have never had a jap spitz with brown tinges on them but I have seen other people with ones with pale biscuit colouring (like you get on samoyeds). Never heard of food affecting the colour I have bred them on and off since 1982 and lost my last one in 2007 Ickle UK
  2. I would be more concerned of my bitch was grumbling and bullying the puppy Give her time she will decide when she is ready to welcome your new baby. Just do not let her feel left out. best wishes Ickle

    Mini Shelties?

    Maybe they are trying to get closer to the oriiginal shelties which came from the UK and are up to 14 inches for bitches and up to up to 14 & 1/2 inches for dogs Oh and yes a collie was crossed with the original sheltie to help set the type many many years ago. Ickle (sheltie breeder in UK )
  4. Walkin' in A Doggie Wonderland Dog tags ring, are you listenin'? In the lane, snow is glistenin'. It's yellow, NOT white - I've been there tonight, Marking up my winter wonderland. Smell that tree? That's my fragrance. It's a sign for wand'ring vagrants; "Avoid where I pee, it's MY pro-per-ty! Marked up as my winter wonderland." In the meadow dad will build a snowman, following the classical design. Then I'll lift my leg and let it go Man, So all the world will know it's mine-mine-mine! Straight from me to the fencepost, flows my natural incense

  6. Dear friends on the list. I had this message on my private email from an Italian sheltie friend, which I will translate for you into English. Please, send it to everybody you know, send it through other international or national smartgroup lists, if necessary translate it into your own language. Thanks everybody who will give a little help to make people aware of this immense cruelty, that is happening just in front of everybody's eyes. Alfredo "if you follow the below link, you will get to the PETA (people for Ethical Treatment of Animals) web site, an international association tha
  7. “IF IT SHOULD BE” If it should be that I grow frail and weak and pain prevents my peaceful sleep, then you must do what must be done, when this last battle cannot be won. You will be sad, I understand; Selfishness might stay your hand, but on this day, more than the rest, your love and friendship take the test. We have had so many happy years, that what’s to come can hold no fears, You would not want me to suffer, so, when the time comes, please let me go. Take me where my needs they will tend, only – stay with me until the end. Hold me firm and speak to me, until my
  8. From another group: WHEN I AM OLD When I am old... I will wear soft gray sweatshirts... and a bandana over my silver hair... and I will spend my social security checks on wine and my dogs. I will sit in my house on my well-worn chair and listen to my dogs breathing. I will sneak out in the middle of a warm summer night and take my dogs for a run, if my old bones will allow... When people come to call, I will smile and nod as I show them my dogs... and talk of them and about them... the ones so beloved of the past and the ones so beloved of today... I will
  9. [size=6][b]You Know You Love Dogs When... You have a kiddie wading pool in the yard, but no small children. You have baby gates permanently installed at strategic places around the house, but no babies. The trash basket is more or less permanently installed in the kitchen sink, to keep the dog out of it while you're at work. You can't see out the passenger side of the windshield because there are nose-prints all over the inside. Poop has become a source of conversation for you and your significant other. You refer to yourselves as Mommy and Daddy. Your

    Not been online

    Have not been online much this last 10 days have a litter of six frenchie puppies to look after. Did have 7 but one dear little chap was to small to survive (he was only a third of the size of the other pups.) I hope everyone is safe and well despite the hurricanes . Take care and God bless Ickle
  12. I am a co-ordinator for sheltie rescue in the UK and we have foster parents who I agree with you are the most marvellous of folks We should cherish them always Bless them all wherever they live in the world. Loved that last tale .Thanks for sharing. Ickle
  13. [size=6][b]I hope you enjoy the little story below, and wipe tears as I always do. THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THIS FOSTER DOG INTO MY LIFE Had I not made the decision to participate in rescue, I would never have had the chance to meet him. If I had sat here comfortably in my home and said "I already have four dogs and I know that I couldn't take in another - even on a temporary basis," I would never have met this dog. Yes, it takes time to rescue and foster... but who gave me time in the first place? And why or what was the reason I was given Time? To fill my own needs? O
