It's time we introduce Casey's Worlds visitors to our new girl Cleo, a serendipity adoption if there ever was one. Victoria and I came across a post on Rescued Hearts that displayed a photo of this 4-year-old Border Collie mix - BC/Lab/Aussie to be exact - all smiles and sitting with a house cat by her side. The narrative essentially said that Cleo liked kids, cats, everyone she came in contact with, and practically walked on water. We filled out an application immediately, knowing full well that she was too good to be true and that it was unlikely we'd win this lotto.
As it turned out, the owner, a new mother, was having difficulty providing Cleo with the attention she needed. A five-month-old baby and a full-time job made adoption for Cleo the best option and luckily we made the cut. And what a special, even-tempered kid she is. Casey would have loved her.
