The dogs

Hi, my name is Robin and I was adopted from New England border Collie Rescue when I was just a year old. I'm very proud of the fact that since then I have earned working "titles", a CDX in competition obedience and OA and OAJ in AKC Agility. I already have two "legs" on my Excellent Jumpeers title. When Icame here I lived with two shelties, Sparrow (Carmylie Sparrowhawk, UD. MX)-he was the Boss and oldest and Merlin (MACH Toven Wilderness Merlin, UD, CGC, TDI). Merlin didn't have all those titles then but he worked very hard, and Mom considered him to be a "perfect dog". Both Sparrow and Merlin have left us to go live with the angels . It was so sad to lose my best friend Merlin, because he got canine lymphoma when he was only 8 years old. Now I live with a pesky sheltie puppy named Zeeba.

Hi, I'm Zeeba aka Toven BZ Bobolink O' Wilderness.
This picture was taken when I was 4 months old and I'm almost 6 months now. I don't have any "titles" yet but I'm learning to retrieve a dumbbell and to go to a target and to go to a little pause table and lie down. I even let my mom brush my teeth with an electric toothbrush which is pretty cool since I just finished getting all my big dog teeth. And you know something--sometimes I feel real grown up and lift me back leg real high when I go pee pee so I don't get it on my front feet. I can't wait 'till the snow is gone so that I can learn more new things about agility which is lots of fun. I think that mom will be posting lots about all the new things that Robin and I will be doing.
