Small World!

Super excited to announce that Joey has a new home!!  I had placed an ad on Kijiji not really expecting anything to come of it.  I'm picky after all.  A bit surprised at the amount of interest in him I had two people emailing.  And tonight I has another person express interest.  I emailed back their answers.  And received an immediate response.  Calling them I told him Joey's bloodline.  

He didn't even let me finish he was so excited.  He has Joey's full brother!  What are the odds?  What makes me happy about this is Joey is going to a working home to be a chore dog.  This will make Joey happy too.  He will have an owner who understands Border Collies, working dogs and the ability to teach Joey new things.  His new owner understands Joey's background and will work with him on his issues.  And Joey gets someone who will appreciate him for who he is.  What a great deal for both of them.  

I'll be sad to see him go but know what's best for me and what's best for the dog are not necessarily the same thing.   Yay to Joey!!

That is quite the coincidence - that you found the owner of Joey's brother! I'm sure he will be very happy in his new home.
