Barbed Wire
Merritt 1 More about Merritt:  Merritt was adopted from All Border Collie Rescues in December of 2015.  She was classified as a "Special Treasure" due to her missing right, rear leg ... and she certainly is a special treasure!  No one, except Merritt - and she isn't talking - knows what happened to that leg, but make NO MISTAKE, it does NOT slow her down at all!

Dad and Murr have developed a pretty tight bond!  She follows dad everywhere he goes - including the office and bed (just like Roo did), and the "blackies" aren't generally allowed back there!  She has kinda taken on that role - much to mom-D's chagrin.

Her most favoritest pastime is swimming - yes sir, she really loves that tank!  At first we were afraid that she would just swim in circles - but she is the Mark Spitz of this place!  Yeah, if the gate to the trap is open, she will likely be in the tank just swimming up a storm (don't worry about her drowning though - the tank is only about 18" deep)!!!

A kind and generous bupp (except with her food or treats) - Merritt welcomes all and is decidedly Happy As Hell with life and absolutely makes the most of every day that she has been given!
