    It's funny the pic of the cattle dog above here is an exact replica of my dog, Sydney.He's the second Heeler I've had in my life. I've waited a long time to get him, because I know they can be challenging dogs.The good things: He's smart, very smart, loyal, actually to a fault...

    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!

    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...

    Used To

    I used to have a best friend named Beau. He was wonderfully beautiful with one blue eye and one hazel eye. He was smart too. I used to take him riding on my bike. He taught himself to balance and away we would go. I rode many miles with that dog. It isn't often that a doggie...

    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...
