Sky is a little border collie that was renamed in honor of ‘Pilots n Paws’, the organization
that transported her from a high-kill shelter in Louisiana to the Sunshine State.
After surviving two rambunctious boys & puppy sitting for my best friends’ dog, I
knew I had room in my home & in my heart for another dog. While searching the internet
I came across Sky & a couple months later I contacted her rescue group & her foster
mom. After exchanging emails for a couple of weeks I decided to take the boys and
4 hours later we arrived at the dog park on the east coast & the boys were ready
to run. Sky & her foster mom arrived a few minutes later & Sky immediately hid under
a picnic bench.
After spending 7 months in foster care, she was more than a little uncertain why
her foster mom had brought her to this strange place & why she was being loaded in
a strange car, with strange dogs. When we got home the boys began to frolic & play
while Sky sat on the sidelines, just watching. But it wasn’t long before she got
tired of just sitting there & began to join in.
Then Jett showed her the toy basket. When he pulled the basket over & the toys spilled
out, her eyes lit up. The three of them went through & played with each toy until
they got to the tennis balls & Sky was in heaven.
I knew then that she would be joining her brothers in the flyball lanes.
