This is Cricket. She looks like a red & white smooth coat Border Colllie.
She's still not really comfortable being handled or around strange noises (like cameras with flashes). She saw the camera and quickly ran to the corner and curled up.
Then I tried to pick her up so Meghan could get a standing shot. You can see her tail tucked completely under her and her eyes are squeezed tightly shut. She's terrified of human contact. :'( She never growled or tried to bite though so she has a nice temperament.
Meghan was sitting on Cricket's blankets so Cricket finally went near her because Meghan was holding hot dogs.
I love this photo. It show progress...no matter how small.
Awww... poor baby. :'(
I'm glad she's in good hands now.

awwww...that made me tear a bit.
i sure she's thankful and happy for your love and patience with here.
What a beautiful girl. Thank you for taking care of her. She just needs time and love and I bet she will be an awesome companion. Thanks to you she will be having a Merry Christmas!!
What a sweetie. She's so scared and still gentle.
what a pretty girl! (and I meant to tell ya... Essy and Meghan were mentioned in this month's DogSport, a Canadian magazine that was covering Cynosport...
Cool! Is it online or print only? I'd love to get a copy of the article to put in Meghan and Essy's scrapbook.Originally Posted by kaytris
Here's their website: http://www.dogsportmagazine.com/ - you can order an issue from them, or I could photocopy her article for you if you don't mind not having the original - let me know if you want me to stick it in the mail...
I hope with alot of love and a permanent home, that some of her skittishness will go away! What a pretty pup and good addition to the family!
Those pictures of that scared girl reminds me so much of how my Duke was at first. Has Cricket met Murray and Essy yet? If she's not afraid of them, I bet they could get her out of her fear a lot faster than people can. I credit Duke's turnaround to M&J.
