Boogie Blogging Friday with Special Guest, Dare

Friday, June 26, 2009
This week, Boogie has decided to give up his weekly spotlight to a Sheltie named Dare, pictured at right.

Dare only has two legs - a front and a back leg on the right side. He lost the other two in his early weeks as a puppy mill puppy, and he was subsequently rescued by Colorado Sheltie Rescue. Adopted by Tami Skinner, they're now an animal-therapy team with the American Humane Association. They spend their days visiting a variety of facilities, and young Dare is a big hit everywhere they go.

Dare is a good, good boy.



Wag o' the tail to my Hot Mom.

That's awesome -- does he run/get around OK? He looks mid-stride in the photo.

Very cool.

Uh yeah, nevermind my question. I actually clicked the link. DUH. :)

He's definitely a pretty dog!

Animals never cease to amaze me, they're so adaptable!!

And humans have been known to whine over a paper cut.

Dare is one cool pooch! Nice that he's doing therapy work too.

Well, that outdoes Ghost, the somewhat maniacal three legged cat i live with. So i had better make sure she doesn't learn of Dare...

"Oh yeah? I bet I could get by with one..."

The main problem being, she's liable to test it on me first, she is a cat after all.

(Kidding of course, of all the cats i have lived with she has the most excuse to be mean, so of course she is a sweetie. And besides, i have hidden the chainsaws.)

What a gorgeous puppy! (To me, all dogs are puppies.)

Reminds me of a dog I saw at an adoption fair that I wish I could've gotten. His name was Lucky and he was missing his two back legs, so he got around via cart. Sweetest, happiest mutt you ever did meet.
