THINK YOU CAN'T FIND A GREAT TEAMMATE IN RESCUE?
Sadly, we lost our beloved Blaze to cancer in January, 2013. He has left a big hole in our pack and in our hearts.
Blaze was an unexpected addition to the Creekside pack. He came to us via Glen Highland Farm in Morris NY, a rescue organization dedicated to Border Collies. His history included a backyard breeder and an elderly couple who meant well but were no match for an active young dog. Blaze was relinquished to GHF at just under 1 year of age. Somehow, this fun loving and smart dog remained for months as adopters came and went....We are so glad he waited for us!
Blaze's fantastic temperament and his "everything is a good idea" personality made him a joy to live with and his toy drive and silliness made him a very fun partner in agility. He enjoyed much success as well, earning his championship in both AAC and USDAA agility and placing at Regionals and Nationals several times in various classes.
As a retirement pastime, Blaze had decided he wanted to be a herding dog and loved circling round and round our chickens (holding a stick of course!)
