St John’s Ambulance Dog
A few years ago after we lost our last German Shepherd, we decided to make a complete change to Collies….the dogs of our youth.
Isn’t that so true for many of us? We tend to gravitate back to what we loved in our childhood! And of course on the farm, we always had collies.
Plus, with grandchildren now, we just felt the collies would be the perfect match for the kids….they love kids.
We looked for several months before finding Ebony on the internet….and fell in love with her immediately! We had her shipped out to Seattle and made the trip down to pick her up. What an adventure. She arrived safe and sound alright, but what a mess the kennel was! There was this adorable little bundle of joy, covered in a mess from her long flight…arriving at midnight and trying to find a suitable place to bath her and clean up the kennel before heading out.
The airport staff were awesome and allowed me to use one of their bathrooms, so bath-time it was! She was wonderful then. She has brought such joy into our lives.
Unerringly obedient…and just beautiful. Soon after her arrival it was back travelling by truck to Alberta, so she had to learn to ‘go pee’ on command and she did.
