I recently took a trip to Michigan to discuss the farm I found with family members and check on all my dogs I have at my mom's place. Her husband Bruce takes care of all 13 for me.
I got to play with Dot and Izzy, the two Collies I had to go to court to get ownership of after my mom passed. Dot in particular was soooo happy to see me as she always has been since she was a tiny puppy. Izzy was happy to play with me, but she seems "put off" or different, and pretty thin. It's very understandable considering she had two litters of puppies in 7 months. One litter was one my mom bred and whelped October of 2008. When the dogs were taken from my mom's yard the girl who took them bred Izzy again and she whelped in July. Both litters she had 8 puppies, so 16 puppies within 7 months is hell on a dog.
Here are some pictures of Izzy:
