My Favorite Pictures

Here are a few ( I use the word few lightly) of my favorite pictures of my dogs. I have five dogs currently and they do keep me on my toes. Never a dull moment in my house. Most of my dogs have had some sort of job weather it be competing in AKC Obedience Competitions, AKC Conformation, Flyball, and active Certified/Registered Therapy Dogs. Their number one job is to be the best family companions first, to cuddle with, play with, and enjoy being part of the family.

This is Jake. He is currently 10 years old, and one of the best German Shepherds I have ever owned. A very special boy with a huge heart, favorite past time is playing with his tennis ball, and spending the day with my husband. I think he owns stock in Tennis Balls.

This is Jarie. She is the baby of the family. She is 2 years old. She loves everything and everybody.

This is Bandit, My oldest Australian Shepherd. He is 8 years old. He is the clown of the house and never fails to make me laugh with his silly antics. I don't think he will ever grow up. Don't let the sweet angel face full you, he can be a real devil when he wants to be, always into something.

This is Jeni, she is my 6 year old Australian shepherd. She is the smallest in my house and the sweetest and smartest little girl. She is the alpha in the dog pack, and Bandit's best friend.

This is Jessi, my 4 year old Australian Shepherd. She is my wild child. Jessi has one speed, WARP speed. Crazy, Crazy pup she is. But oh, she is so very sweet. She packs a good punch if she jumps on you.

Lovely pictures of your dogs. I especially like the picture of Jarie with the crazy eyes, about to grab her toy. But the pictures below of Grady just about broke my heart. I hope that he is doing better now!

Wow! What a pack. I am partial to Chesapeak Bay retrievers but now that I've retired from duck hunting my new German Shepherd Baron is a real sweetie. I have been told Australian Shephers are the most intelligent of all dogs and wonder if that is true?

dog-geek, Thank you for nice compliment. Regarding Grady, he is slowly improving. I will be posting updated pictures of him tomorrow. He is a sweet little soul.

I love Chesapeak Bay Retrievers. Great dogs.
Aussies actually rank number 2 in intelligence right behind the Border Collie. They are thinkers, and it is important to always stay one step ahead of them. A little easier to handle then the Border, but Border Collies are great dogs too. It is easier to get an Aussie to calm down, they have a better off switch (which I prefer) then the border.

Love the dogs! I wish you well with Grady too, he is such a sweet looking boy. I hope everything turns out all right with him.
