Mom has raised collies for more years than I can remember. They are rambunctious, friendly and benevolent- all things Freki needs right now. Though she loves people, new places and travel, she is still uncertain how to greet new dogs, and last week was a grand experiment.
For the first 5 minutes after we arrived, Freki barked, hackles up, at the rowdy greeting from the collies. But they were on the other side of the fence and she soon dropped her hackles and became interested in the pack of dogs that just wanted to make friends and were not intimidated by her in the least.
It was a long trip, but we all had a great time. We got to visit with friends (with and without Freki) and even managed a bit of Christmas shopping. And of course, we ate our share of turkey and fixin's.
Hoping everyone has a happy, healthy holiday season!
