We Did It! We have been talking and looking for a camp dog for about a year.
We took the plunge. Image We would like to introduce Chelsie to everybody.




Chelsie is a year old. She is a Border Terrier. We found her on Craiglist, posted by
Act Now Animal Rescue Care. She has been in four pet foster homes. Her first home,
she was there for about six months and she was being abused. We were told that the
Dad from this family abused her, so she is afraid of men. We have had her since
Monday of last week. She has adjusted with me and slowly trusting Alan. It will take
her a little while. When we first saw her, we were completely in love with her. She is
a great little dog. Our family have been coming over all week to see Chelsie and she
absolutely loves all the grandchildren. We were wanting a small dog for camping,
hiking and canoeing. Her first camping trip will be next weekend. We can't wait to
introduce her to exploring the great outdoors with us.

Chris & Alan,

It is wonderful to share your experiences with a new little friend. I am sure Chelsie will fit right in.

CONGRATULATIONS on the new arrival to your family Chris. She is just georgous & I am sure she will give your family much love & pleasure during the coming years.

It will not be long before both you and she feel like she has been a member of your family for years:-))

WELCOME Chelsie......

Like PJ, I too always camp with my 2 'girls' & I can assure you they are great company & even better conversation starters.

They are also great little warning bells.
