I know, I know – no breed of the week today. I’m running out of new breeds to photograph (I prefer to use my own photos. OR PHOTOS PEOPLE GIVE ME PERMISSION TO USE. *hint hint*) Today we participate in Wordless Wednesday with the Australian Shepherd. But when have I ever been wordless? Heh.
Yes, I’m partial to my very own dogs. For the first few months I blogged, I talked about Australian Shepherds extensively. Or maybe it just felt that way. Flash and Patches are Aussie mixes, their mama being full blood, the dad the German Shepherd next door that got under the fence.
We rescued our two babies more than eight years ago, when they were three years old. It was the best thing we’d done in the way of dogs.
Our prior dog was an Australian Shepherd. We’d never heard of the breed before meeting her four month old puppy self. So in nearly twenty two years of marriage, we’ve had the original Aussie and this pair:
It’s been good. And along this blogging journey I’ve met several Australian Shepherds I’ve fallen head over heels for. Let’s take a look:
I love blogging for Jones. So many great dogs, so little time. And I’d love to write up your dog. If you have a breed you haven’t seen me feature, consider sending photos and your story? I write up the pros and cons of owning the breed, as well as their distinct features and personality trends. Often I don’t know nearly enough about the breed and would love your input. 🙂
Oh! I said I’d be giving something away today! Coming home from Bark World, I picked up this book, A Dog Named Boo, in the airport:
Loved it. It’s one woman’s story of how a dog changed her life. An adorable special needs dog. Very good read. So leave a comment on this post and I’ll be naming the winner of the book on Monday.
Until I write again …
