Shetland sheep have changed my life and touched my heart. They have brought me joy, adventure and serenity. Follow along as I live each day influenced by memories of my mighty flock of mini sheep ~ aided and abetted by "Bellamica", the English Shepherd,"Sable", my livestock guardian dog and "Hero" the rescue dog that stole my heart! You'll also meet many of the homeless dogs that I rescue and rehome as part of Bluff Country Canine Rescue.

It's ABUSE, I tell ya!
I want to tell everyone the TRUTH about the animal cruelty that's happening at Bluff Country Shetlands.
You see, Kahlua and I have just been hanging around, eating grass and minding our own business, when Mom decides to start RIPPING THE WOOL RIGHT OFF OF OUR BODIES!!!
I've got PROOF!
Just look at our poor, naked necks...
Mom seems to think that just because it didn't hurt or anything, it's OK.
She says it's an ancient process called 'rooing' that has been used instead of shearing primitive sheep for centuries, and that the wool is already loosened and ready to fall out..
I don't care WHAT Mom says...
It's a matter of principle!!!
At least it WAS until Mom mentioned paying a man to come over with a noisy machine, who would come over and set us on our butts and cut off ALL OF OUR WOOL AT ONCE!!!
