    Sally Pup

    Our beloved yellow Lab mix passed on- arthritis and old age took away our precious pup.  I decided I wanted an intelligent off the couch dog before age caught up with me- I knew that an ACD fit the bill.  I thought I'd checked out the facts well then we brought home Sally and...

    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!
