I have been shopping the pound for the right pet lately and on wednesday I found a handsome blue merle, 8 month old australian shepard. I decided he was the just the boy to fill out my family and adopted him. I did the paper work and paid the fee and he could not come home with me because he had to be fixed. So I walked out without being able to take him home yet. I was walking to my care and a couple was carrying the most beautiful tri color Australian shepard girl. I asked to pet her and was telling them what a beautiiful puppy they had when they told me they were there to drop her off because they found her as a stray. They told me I could have her if I wanted her. I held this little girl and her personality was so wonderful I could never hand her back. I looked at the couple and said "your done, You dont even have to go inside because I will take her". So I drove home and introduced her to my 1 1/2 border collie / bernese mountain dog mix you see pictured in my avatar. Yeap that cute little black and white dog in the picture is now 85 lbs. The two ogt along very well for their age differance and I could tell all would be fine. Yesterday I picked up my sweet blue merle boy and sweet talked him all the way home. I kept repeting my chosen name for him intespersed all through my littl conversation with him. It was a 20 minute drive and being an aussie (very smart dogs) he knew his new name by the time we were home. The introductions went like butter and now I have three dogs. I have a 3 month old girl tri aussie, an 8 month old merle aussie boy and a 1 1/2 year old border collie/ benese mountain dog boy. Needless to say I am going to be walking, ball throwing, dog parking whirlwind for quite some time to come. I cant think of anything more fun for me right now in my life than paying these hairy monsters massive attention and constantly working to blend my little pack into a wonderful muttly crew. I will try and figure out how to post a pic or two for you guys. I just wanted you all to know why I am not here as much as I used to be. Yes my life has changed this week and it is sooo much for the better.
