This is Mellon - she was our previous dog, a sheltie-mix ~
we rescued her from the local animal shelter when she was about a year old and had fifteen wonderful years with her - we always called her the Perfect Dog.
She had the sweetest disposition and always well-behaved.
The worst thing about her was that she hated thunderstorms, and would pant heavily and shake all over, for some reason she was terribly frightened.
When she was 16 years old, she became sick one day and we had to have her put to sleep. I cried for so long, never wanted another dog.......
but was so lonely for her that after a few weeks, we did go puppy-shopping - and that's when I found and fell in love with Lass! She's my second *perfect* dog!
I think Mellon would love Lass - they are alike in many ways -- except, Lass couldn't care less about the thunderstorms!
