Post-Adoption Update: March 15, 2009 Sweet, nine year old Lucky has become such a wonderful member of our household in the two and a half months he has been here.  I think if love could keep him going, he'd live to be 100.  We've discovered many things about him--he doesn't like rain, puddles, deep snow, or wind, but he's always a good boy when he goes outside.  We aren't fenced but we have several acres and he doesn't wander far.  I have also learned that an unattended wastebasket with food in it should be set on the counter.  Once I found the top piece of bread daintily removed from a sandwich when I left it on the table!  Oh, and yesterday he rearranged a plate of cookies intended for a church event. (I counted, and none were missing.)

Lucky loves everyone who comes to the house, especially the grandchildren--all sizes and ages.  He is so big--some think we have a pony in the house, but he is very unobtrusive and quiet.  He enjoys car rides and traveled well on a trip to Florida. 

He has had two trips to the groomer and looks magnificent when he comes home.  They have noted an improvement in his coat already. What a beautiful collie boy!  I only wish he could handle the staircase to join us upstairs at night.  We're giving him a glucosamine supplement, hoping to help with his stiffness. 

Lucky is a perfect match for us and we are grateful for all the wonderful volunteers at MWCR for their compassionate service.

Description: Lucky is a large, intact, 9 year old tri-color male who currently tips the scales at a sizable 112 lbs, yet does not appear obese.  Friendly to one and all, even the cat, this gentle giant of a dog enjoys the company of people and particularly of children.  This collie's adopters will be lucky, too, as he is very well-behaved.  He is house trained, not a counter surfer, rarely barks and sleeps on the floor wherever you tell him to.  He enjoys being outside with others and doesn't wander far.  While this easygoing boy would be a good addition to almost any household, Lucky's ideal home would include a good sized yard.
