Laureate Shelties Blog

A bit of this, a bit of that...with a lot of free spirits.

One of the joys of raising dogs is meeting people with whom you develop a lasting friendship. January will mark the 20th year since our first litter, so that is a pretty long time. What is nice is when families that have had one of our dogs in the past come back to us for another...and another. Such is the case with Janet and Gene Hamelin. They first got Indy, Laureate's Little Bear's Kiss, CD, CGN (on right) and then several years later, they were kind enough to give a retirement home to his dam, Morgan (Laureate Dream West, ROMC). When Morgan passed away and they felt they were ready, they adopted Cupcake , Ch. Laureate Meringue (on left). Cupcake was one we felt we could never part with. She is a ray of sunshine. Every day to her is an opportunity and she is perpetually cheerful (we always said she's a cup of cheer)! How could we part with a dog like that? Well a few years ago when we looked around and realized that our "geriatric" population was increasing we realized we had to make a choice between Cupcake and Tiramisu. We decided Tira would stay, only because she doesn't make new friends very fast and we felt she wouldn't adjust. Cup, on the other hand, packed her bag and never looked back! I received this photo yesterday and I particularly love it, because it shows a bond between these two marvellous Shelties and for the fact that we've met two wonderful people who give our dogs their undivided attention and love. Thank you Janet and Gene!
