    Meet the Kiz

    This is Greta, as she appeared on petfinder.

    She'd been at the shelter for a few months. A kill shelter. I had every intention of going to Collie rescue for my next dog, but I was perusing petfinder and loved the look of a cute lab/terrier mix puppy. I also was intrigued by Greta's sister, Gretchen. I kind of passed on by Greta, because her picture didn't really grab me. Well I toodled on over to the shelter. The adorable lab/terrier puppy was of course gone, but Gretchen was there. I had them bring her out so I could get to know her. We didn't click. She wasn't paying me any attention. So we went back and I thought what the heck, let me meet Greta too.

    We connected instantly. She had that look in her eyes that reminded me of Oz. So I could tell she was incredibly smart. She was also very friendly, outgoing and affectionate. Very kissy. She'd run off to greet people at the fence, then when I'd call, she'd come running straight back to me. She's a character too. I was squatted down on one of the recalls and she launched herself at me to land in my lap and we both tumbled backwards onto the ground. LOL I realized real quickly that this girl is something special and I couldn't leave her there on death row. I think she may be a GSD/Collie/Heeler mix, so it's almost like getting a Collie again. But I totally chose her based on personality and smarts. And look what I discovered when I got her home and started taking pics of her.

    She's absolutely beautiful. With her ears down, it didn't come shining thru at first. Took me two days, but I finally decided on Kiz/Kizzie for her name. Started out as a cross between Kismet and Kissy. Then after some research, I discovered Kizzie means light of heart and there's also a great character from Roots named Kizzy, so I can keep my TV/Movie/Literature theme of dog names going. Seems perfect for her.

    I can't believe so many people passed this girl by. She is a keeper. No potty accidents. Not destroying anything. Soft and gentle mouth, not nippy or bitey. Calm in the house, but playful and can run like the wind outside. Not barky so far. She's picking up on everything I'm teaching her really fast. Except catching. She catches like Maddie and just lets the stuffie bounce off her forehead. So I'm not sure if she'll be a frisbee dog like Oz and Gull, but I'm thinking she might be really good at dog agility or maybe flyball. She's real attached to the ball and is getting the concept of fetch already. Next step is to get her into obedience class to continue socializing and training, then we'll see about agility or flyball maybe. So more pics of her with her ball in next post.

    Hello Kiz,

    www, she's perfect and she is beautiful. Hard to believe how she manages to fold those ears back.

    I did the right thing by setting you free
    But the pain is very deep.
    If only I could turn back time, forever, you I'd keep.
    I miss you


    I hear you whimper in your sleep
    I gently pet you and say, no bad dreams
    It will be alright, to my dog as dark as night.

    Fur as dark as the night.
    Join me on this flight.
    Paws of love that follow me.
    In my heart you'll forever be.
    [/SIZE]



    How I wish I could hold you near.
    Turn back time to make it so.
    Hug you close and never let go.
