Laredo is a very handsome 4 1/2 yr old Tri-colored
male Collie. He is docile and good with
children and other dogs, but is a bit overweight.
He is a very dark brown and black with white feet,
belly, and mane. He has a golden face with a
dark brown raccoon - like mask on his face.
Laredo traveled well in the car. He will be
neutered and brought up to date on all vaccinations.
Laredo will be well cared for and loved in his new

Latest updates from Laredo's Foster Mom;
Hopefully film will be back at Sam's this afternoon
or tomorrow and I can get some pictures in the mail
Laredo is a bit livelier now that he's not so
shell-shocked and not on medsother than his ear
stuff. Mollie is being very nice to him (ignores).
Laredo really wanted to be outside yesterday. He
wants to run and be off his leash- which he can't
do. He whined off and on all day when inside. Now
today, he has been out several times, and for the
past few hours has been contentedly looking out the
sliding glass door at the woods. I suppose after
having run free for five years it is a major
lifestyle adjustment for a guy!I hope he can get
used to it and isn't constantly miserable. (He also
wants to eat at 4:30 or 5 a.m.- imagine he used to
wake with the sun and the birds when he lived
outside!) Randy has talked about fencing the yard so
he could run free- Mollie has learned to go out with
us w/out a leash and stays on our acre with no
problem- and she's the one who jumped Joni's fence
He is still very lovey- nuzzles, and loves to be
next to you and having you pet him. He loves the
boys and their friends. Actually, he loves everyone!
We'll keep you posted- we all love him- but hope he
can be happy being an inside dog. We'll have to see
how he continues to adjust.
Hi- Just logged on and there was
your message. We got about three inches of snow
yesterday afternoon- was a royal mess! Had sleet
first, then snow, then 30 mph winds with whiteouts.
I was glad to get everyone home and inside! (And
glad it stopped at 3 in!) Laredo and Mollie* were
confused by it- and she does not like the cold on
her paws- Randy got her booties a few weeks ago when
we had the really cold stuff, but Miss Mollie did
not like those either.
Webmaster's Note: Mollie is a MWCR rescued Collie
that was adopted in April, 2002.
Laredo is SO lovable! Loves
attention, but does not demand it! He comes up and
sticks his head in the crook of your arm (esp. if
typing on computer!) Curt was thrilled to learn he
plays ball- sort of! Mollie growled at him, but we
KNOW she doesn't give a hoot about the ball! They
have played together in the snow. I think she's
getting used to him . Chris was home sick today-
said when he was awake did not hear any
fights-Mollie is a riot- sometimes lays (lies?) on
the floor to block him getting to a place he may
want to go-Chris' room, or downstairs- smart cookie!
He just goes away for awhile until she forgets about
it. They may decide they kind of like each other! I
think they've already started to figure out each
others' quirks (except she seems to have more than
