Some of you may know my girl Sadie came from a rescue in Montreal (Rosie's Animal Adoption) She and her litter mate Cookie were abandoned and then saved by the lovely angels that operate Rosies. They were maybe 5/6 weeks old when they were dumped. Sadie came to live with us and she's been here every since in Toronto. Cookie was adopted but recently given back to Rosie's where Rosie's found her the BEST HOME EVER and it's CLOSE to me!!
Cookies family is awesome and today the girls got to meet for the first time since they were maybe 7/8 weeks old!! I nearly cried but couldn't stop taking pictures!

I hope you enjoy them....

Cookie is much bigger then Sadie though...I think our missy was the runt ;)

If you need help identifying...Cookie has more white on her chest and face.

That is just too sweet. TOO SWEET. They look so happy! And they're both so pretty (though our Sadie is still the one with star appeal...) That's very very neat that you live close together and actually got to get them together after all this time again. How fun!

The pictures are fantastic as usual too! Don't even TRY to stop taking pictures, Luba. :p

Luba
June 24th, 2005, 08:18 PM

OMG Luba reading about it and seeing the pics had me in tears..It's so great to hear they were reunited :thumbs up .And looks like they had a blast together.And to have Cookie live close to you,that is so great.I guess Sadie will be seeing much more of her sister. :)

You keep those pics coming.

Rottielover,they are definately PB Collies.We hadn't seen pics of Sadie for quite some time,but when she came back on and posted the pics of "our" darling Sadie,I definately knew she was all Collie. ;)

Luba,they are soooo beautiful..I am using up a box of tissues,but it's happy tears.After reading about Keeper,who might loose his life because of a Hydrangea and poor abused Grace(now loved and cared for by Canine14)it's wonderful to see two very happy doggies,whom I know will live happily ever after :thumbs up
Keep the pics coming..... :D

Thank you all so very much!! It was one of those things you know, when first we were considering adopting Sadie we took a couple of days, as we were actually debating over if we were ready (after our other dog passed away). I was drawn to these girls pictures and when I went back to Rosie's site a couple days later, Cookie was gone. Sadie in my heart was all alone (mush mushy sentimental) and I just felt I needed to take her.

There are always sad sad stories on here and sometimes they affect me a great deal. It's not very often they don't...and yes things run through our minds before we go to bed and such about the poor orphans needing homes, who were dumped, abused, neglected and such.

Happy tears in my book are always the best, they're refreshing and healing :D

:confused: I had no idea there was ever any doubt (then again, I wasn't here for the beginning of her story).

These are wonderful pictures, and it makes for a very touching moment. I'm so glad that both doggies are well-loved and cared for and are able to frolic together once again. :love: I concur - keep these beautiful pics coming! :D

Actually these girls are mixed with something. It's hard to tell from the pictures but up close and personal I honestly think they have some golden in them. Esp with the coat. I've had pb collies before and their coats are much different. Sadie is a little more stocky then Cookie, she's the tall one :D

People tell me all the time she looks pb collie and I dont' mind but I also love having a MUTT :D

P.S
Sadie says she's glad to fool ya

Here is a pic of my old boy Laddie who was pb from a show breeder....

People would not know if you didn't tell them that both girl were mixed, doesn't really matter though as they are both gorgeous. Mixed dogs are just a special as pure-bred dogs, my first golden look alike was a dog I had when I was very young Sandy best dog ever :love: Again love Sadie's coat colour.

Thought you might like to see some pix of Cookie and Sadie shortly after they were taken in by Rosie's Animal Adoption. Aren't they just the sweetest little angels? Look at them now! They are still two very beautiful ladies! :)

Luba
June 25th, 2005, 08:52 PM
(Welcome) It's so nice to have you here :D

Sadie looks like the runt in that picture LOL

I think I figured out maybe what happened to her as a little pup, feeding may have been difficult for her cause of the undershot jaw and that maybe inhibited some of her growth? But she certainly eats well now LOL

I'm so glad you came Cookies Mom :D

Adorable! Both girls are so cute, their eyes say hey take me home we will grow to be the bestest girls ever! :queen: So nice they now live close enough to know each other, same goes for their Mom's. :love:

How old are the girls now?

Did the doggies recognize each other? Like was there more of an immediate bond than with other dogs?

They look so good together, and I agree with the ear thing.. :)

Well the girls are 18 months old now and both are happy and very healthy.

It was hard to tell if they remembered eachother or one anothers scent BUT after they were around one another for awhile it seemed like it to me, they felt familiar to eachother. They did a lot of hugging and rolling around on the floor together, couldn't get close enough.

Sadie was showing Cookie her house, taking her through each of the rooms then exploring the basement...like she was taking her on tour. It was really funny and adorable.

Cookie is very very lucky to have such a wonderful family!!

Anita, I love those pictures and you know how my heart is soft for collies :D

[QUOTE=chico2]Hello Cookiesmom and welcome to the Forum,any friend of Luba and Sadie is a friend of mine :D

Thank you for the warm welcome. The picture of "Lassie" is beautiful! Cookie is now my 3rd collie. My first was a pb named Bonnie, and she was a sweetheart and my 2nd was a collie/x (mostly collie) named Max. He was a great dog who we recently had to have put down just b4 Cookie came into our lives. Max lived to the ripe old age of 15 years and led a wonderful life! We have truly been very honoured to have had these dear sweet angels in our lives. Cookie is proving to be every bit as wonderful as Bonnie and Max. It must be that collie temperment! It was so nice to have her reunite with her sister Sadie. I also think that there was some recognition. They both got along so well and we plan on having Sadie over for a visit soon. :)

OMG, OMG, OMG!!! Your pictures are fantastic!!! I am so thrilled that they had a chance to meet! Cookie is (almost) as beautiful as our Sadie!! ;) What a wonderful, wonderful day! I am so happy for you guys!!

Welcome to pets.ca Cookiesmom!!! Hope you enjoy it here! :D

Cookie's mom you must not listen to the likes of these ones.. :eek: they are biased! (I love u guys tho)

Some of them have watched Sadie grow up before their eyes, supported me and her when she was so very very sick as a puppy and through her dental surgeries, spaying and now as a big girl.....so they are a little on the Sadie side!!

Hugs to you all but be nice to Cookie she is stunningly beautiful!! And I must add much braver then Sadie pants my little runt!!

OOhh WOW! This is the first thread I pulled up after being off-line for 5 days and it's making my day!!! Couldn't ask for a better surprize! Grinning ear to ear here at work and trying to keep from crying. I always look forward to a "Sadie Fix", but this is going to be hard to ever beat! Best ever!

Welcome Cookiesmom! You've certainly joined a great forum making an immediate, wonderful intro!
