    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...

    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...
