So cute. In that first picture of Shadow meeting Rory I think I hear Shadow saying to himself, "Are you real or are you a new toy?" :giggle:

They are both so cute!! My dog has one of those hedgehogs, and she LOVES it
My previous dogs, Kylie and Autumn had hedgehogs so Shadow and Rory naturally had to have them too!
And, of course, they have to have lambs since they are Shetland Sheepdogs. :laughing2:

Absolutely, he seems to think Rory is a "live" playtoy!!

Haha I was also going to mention the matching hedgehogs appropriate to their respective sizes! I noticed that too :laughing2:. Then the lambs, of course! :giggle:

Is Shadow about full grown visually, and just has some filling out to do? What is the approx. adult weight of a Sheltie? It's amazing to think tiny little Rory will be there soon too! They grow up so fast.

Yes, Shadow is about as big as he will get. He may grow another 1/4".
As he matures, his coat will thicken up.
The fur will grow longer around his face and ruff area.

The breed standards for Adult Shelties are:
Height: 13-16 inches
Weight: 15-25 pounds
Life Expectancy: 12-14 years

What excellent pictures. Both beautiful dog's and that little Rory is as cute as they come, definitely better keep him under lock and key so he don't get "puppynapped"....:001_smile:

Thanks, Randy! :hug:

I'm so enjoying watching the two of them playing together and Rory has already grown quite a bit in just the short time I've had him.

They certainly don't stay little for long. :blush:

My boys are going up so quickly!

Rory is now 5 months old


Shadow is 11 months old


Their favorite time of day is playtime on the hill

Wow, time flies!
Still as cute as ever, and a lovely looking park area too.
They both look very happy there. :)

Thanks, Star
The boys are quite a handful yet at this age but I love them to pieces. :)

I love their pictures!
Thank you. :blush:

That area is some of the "common ground" of the townhouse cluster.
Beyond the creek seen in the background, where the path starts winding back upward, that property belongs to a private golf course.

Beautiful boys, Shadow's coat looks so nice and Rory is so cute with the ball in his mouth, won't be too long and his coat will be as long as Shadow's.

You're right - Rory's "big boy" coat is starting to come in now - I see a difference almost every day.

Oh my gosh! I didn't realize it has been a full year since I posted about the boys. :eek:
I'll try to upload some pictures to Imgur this weekend and update the thread.
Thanks for the reminder, Julie. :blush:

Whew! I thought I'd posted a couple of pictures of Shadow and Rory since we moved and - I did!
They were in my "FaeryBee Flock + Two" Thread. :giggle:

Here they are along with a few new ones












I do have a few more on my phone, I just have to manage to get them onto my computer...

Such handsome boys, you must spend a lot of time on grooming with those perfectly beautiful coats.

Thank you both!

Here are the rest of the pictures, as promised. :) They aren't as clear because they were taken on my phone. :blush:
