Hi Everyone,

New Articles

Advice for the First Time Australian Shepherd Owner by Bonnie Mccready. Bonnie shares her experience with Aussies for first time Aussie owners (or those of us who love to remember what that was like). This is Bonnie's first article for and I look forward to reading many more.

Upcoming Articles

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with James MacKrell, renowned author of Down From the Mountain. Down from the Mountain is being hailed as one of the best new dog stories of our time and it features—you guessed it—an Australian Shepherd. I have good news for James MacKrell fans—he is currently working on a sequel. And here's even more good news that I am very excited about... James will be contributing articles to—I can hardly wait! I'll keep you posted here and on our Facebook page. Check out the reviews of Down From The Mountain here.

Dog Quote for Today

"I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands.
When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands;
then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat.
For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that."

~ W. Dayton Wedgefarth
