Great story, Jana, I'm happy he found such a wonderful home.

>  I got a really nice update not long ago on one of my first fosters

> stray in Ohio.  The shelter had him labeled as a Gordon 
> setter/collie mix, but someone posted him on the list and on NESR.

>My BF and I drove from Maryland to Ohio to get him, and brought home 
>one of the happiest, sweetest, most loving dogs I've ever met.  He 
>would literally hug people, wrapping his legs around your waist and 
>laying his head on your stomach.

>Nicky was also completely blind from cataracts - at the time I had 
>Bonnie, my collie who had been born blind.  Nothing more amazing to 
>watch than two blind dogs playfully (and carefully) wrestling and 
>gnawing on each others' faces.

>Once, I was walking the two of them, my sister's Cavalier, and 
>another foster (an elderly female collie), and we were approached by 
>an aggressive dog.  Nicky had been trailing behind, but when he 
>heard the other one approaching he leaped out to the front and 
>snarled, effectively keeping the other dog at bay.  No one was going 
>to mess with *his* girls!

>His adopters spotted him on NESR's website - they lived in Colorado, 
>but fell in love so quickly that they flew to Maryland to get 
>him.  He has to be in his mid to late teens now, and he's had his 
>eyes removed (he had glaucoma in addition to the cataracts), but 
>he's still a happy, loving little guy!
