    My Baby, Ol' Red :)

    My Red Heeler, full blood A.C.D. is soooo full of life! He loves to jump on people and greet them (which he is slowly learning not everyone wants to be jumped on ;) ) He loves running, racing and jumping for balls and frisbees. He is not much of a cuddler, but loves to be pet...

    I grew up around dogs

    and we had this one called "Shelia" - she was one of the most beautiful animals I've ever been around and I could never forget her. Miss her more everyday!

    Clyde

    Clyde is my five year old heeler. The story of how we adopted him was actually really cool, he followed us home when my family and I were waling one night, and he never really went away. My dad, being a big lover of animals, had a lot of compassion for him, and during a...
