Greetings from Katie the Rescued Border Collie!

Hi, my name's Katie and I'm a rescued Border Collie who is very happy to be growing up in a household of other furry friends. I'll introduce you to them all later, but for now I just want to point at my header and make sure you see my dearly departed big sister Charmin. No silly, NOT the squirrel in the tree, he's just plain entertaining, but the white and red collie mix laying on my warm hinee. She has her own blog at and so does my big brother Tucker who was recently told he had a mast cell tumor and less than a hear to live. He's so fiesty though I bet he'll show THEM who's boss!

Anyway, back to ME... I don't know where I came from or even how old I really am, but what I do know is that my human sis saw me at a mall when the local dog shelter had a bunch of us out there. It was love at first sight and the rest is history! That was about four years ago and they said I was about 2 or 3 years old already. My human sis couldn't take me with her when she moved to an apartment after college, so I stayed behind with the rest of the gang. Of course now she has two other dogs and two cats and is married and all that stuff, oh and she has a big fenced in back yard, BUT my human mom and dad are happy to keep me here, especially now that my big sis Charmin strutted over that Rainbow Bridge in July.

I live to work and for me that means TENNIS BALLS and FRISBEEEEEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My humom and dad are well trained and know that after work and on weekends it is their job to throw the ball or toss the frisbee. My husis even bought my humom a special launcher for my balls cuz she can't throw very far.

My other life passion is herding all the rest of the furry housemates and keeping them in line. Humom just taught me how to "bring Tucker" to her. He looks so much like a little lamb that I guess my herding instinct just kicked in and I was a natural. That should come in handy soon because he's already nearly deaf and is blind in one eye. I can imagine that soon they'll hook us together so he doesn't get lost when we go outside at night!

Well, better go ahead and post this now cuz  I like watching Flash Forward with my humom. She needs her lap warmed up and I'm really good at that.

Tail wags and kisses,


  1. Hey little sis!!! Nice to see you finally got on board with your own blog! Guess we'll be keeping our humom busy with all this dictation, huh?


  2. Hi Katie,

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  3. Hi Katie, we came over from Tucker's too. Isn't he just so nice to introduce us to you? He also said you might be willing to share some of his secrets - we are all ears.

    Woos, the OP Pack

  4. Hi Katie!! It's so AWESOME to see you on here! We miss you lots. 'Specially Daisy, she knows that even though you get mad at her sometimes, you still love to play. :oP

    See you soon!

  5. Oh You're a clever girl, although, bring Tucker would mean something else around here...


Please leave me a paw print or mark your spot so I know you were here.
