    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!

    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...

    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...

    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...
