Meeting the Aussies

Happy Birthday to our pups.  They are four years old today.....



I just thought I would show you some of the latest pictures of them...  They bring so much joy to both of us...
A dream come true for me.  I always wanted 5 dogs and now we have them..  A lot of work but oh, so worth it.


First, there is Mama dog..Bonnie....she is a happy girl...smiling a lot....


Constantly watching the front gate when I am in the yard........


And she means business too.....don't mess with my mistress.....


My dear, dear Maggie.....she is half crazy..and loves Bryan as much as she loves me..the only dog we have that is not partial to one of us...and fiercely protective of our grandchildren....she makes noises like a pig, especially when she is excited...LOUD mouth right here!


She just does not care ..and is not fearful at all...Miss Fearless...


Waiting at the garden gate for me to come out....


Next, my Bo...he is Mr laid back...and he doesn't like little people...AT ALL..he will run for the woods when the grandchildren are here...but he is gorgeous....thinks he is a show dog.....and an extremely loving dog...to me ... I am definitely his favorite....he likes to stay by my side at all times......the only one of them that will STOP barking at the fence when I call them back... Oh, Bo..I love this boy...





This is Jake......he is the sweetest of them all...he is the only one who acts civilized around people and gets to go off with Bryan the most.   he is gentle and beautiful...and full of expression..and stays right by Bryan's side at all times...he would talk if he could...



Jake always looks bright eyed and on alert..but he is really sweet and gentle...


So there you have our three grownup puppies...we also have Tula who is 5 yrs old.. their half sibling..same Mama

She is the ham..in all of the pictures and very photogenic...and spoiled..Bryan's number one dog...
Enjoy the rest of the pictures...a couple are classic and I use them often...fun, fun dogs.  I have had a dog almost all of my life...I guess you could classify me as a real dog person....as pets....the dogshow world was not for me...to each his own...This is my happy place...a home full of dogs.....


These two are usually side by side....the twins.....



Tula, Jake, and Maggie..they are the riders....they go everywhere with Bryan on the weekend..while Bo and Bonnie stay with me at home....


They will howl at every siren or if we sing high pitches....hilarious.....


my heart dog..Bonnie


I hope you have enjoyed seeing and meeting our Australian Shepherds

There were 4 more puppies in this litter...Two of them have gone on to AKC championships and have puppies of their own.

Another one is Aspen and I have kept up with her..she is gorgeous and very much loved by her owner.


Another year older..wow...time flies by....

thank you for stopping by today and I hope to see you again soon......
Enjoy your weekend.  

We will have a house full of grandchildren for a few days so I will be kinda busy and will see you all when they leave...

  4. I never thought I'd connect to you on a "dog" post, but I do! I love my precious Polly Esther as though she is a family member and never thought I would really understand this kind of love.. Your dogs are beautiful, and I've always known you are a dog person, just never understood it.
