"Christmas at the Shelter" -- don't breed or buy while shelter pets DIE! -- Shela WAS a "rescue"
Shela the Highwayhound
LOVES to ride
"She" is a Humane Society rescue dog -- part Lab and part Smooth Collie -- extremely intelligent,
and highly sensitive to verbal and body language.
She's been ridin with me for moren 9 years now. ever since the
day I picked her up from the Humane Society where the first thing she did was jump into the driver's seat, sit down, put her
paws on the steering wheel spokes, turn and look at me as if to say -- "Ok, I'm ready, git in and lets go!" She acted real
disapointed when I indicated she wasn't going to git to drive the rig --
Nowadays, whenever she perceives the SAR rig
being readied for a search loop, She eagerly presents herself to be strapped in to her shotgun seat whereupon She grins from
ear to ear and displays her "I'm happy" body language as we pull out of quarters
On October 19 2004, Shela was an invited
guest in the Viper Room on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood for the first annual Mammoth Mountain Forum members season starter
shindig -- met a lot of folks -- made a lot of friends :)
More routinely, her presence and character helps to calm
accident victims and familys and ONCE her perceptiveness saved the SAR rig from being stolen, I believe, as She took violent
exception to an individual who had approached it late at night beside the interstate whilst my back was turned and I was occupied
with an incident.
She is friendly towards most folks, so those she isn't friendly towards -- well -- I TRUST her instinct!
