I have a wonderful blue merle male named Duke who I take everywhere and do everything with. He has tried his 'paw' in tracking/trailing, agility, obedience, weight pull, and tricks training. He will do anything to get outside and do some agility, or to work some tricks! This photo was taken after a tracking session out at a local park in Hollywood, MD, USA. He loves going up and down slides but can't always make it back up top!
This is my best girl, Gidget. I acquired her on February 14th, 2004, what a great Valentine's Day that was. This girl has been my trusted hiking companion and friend ever since. We are out every day, in the heat of the summer, it is early to rise and to the baseball field for frisbee or ball, then she's off to the brook for a cool off, and in fall, winter and spring, which we both love the most, a lot of hiking and snowshoeing. She loves herding rabbits two feet in front of me, they are Snowshoe Hare and almost as big as her. She loves to hear the shutter click on the camera and will stay when I tell her just to have her picture taken. It doesn't get any better than that, she makes my heart sing!
This is Kolt, a 2.5 yr old male, blue eyed red tri. This picture was taken Christmas Day 2014 at Medina Lake near San Antonio. As you can see, he is quite photogenic when you can get him to stand still long enough!
This is Jasper, our 3 year-old blue merle Australian Shepherd. He brings a lot of joy to our lives. He lives with his two humans in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Fall, winter and spring are the best times to hike so we take him out a lot. This shot is east of Phoenix in the Superstition Mountains where we love to hike, take in the views and experience the sunrises. He's so full of energy, love and happiness, it's hard not to love him. And of course it doesn't hurt that he's pretty cute.
This is our 4 year old Aussie, Buddy. He is always hard at work, patrolling the beat on my parent's 10 acre farm in Fort Lupton, CO. When he's not hard at work (which is not often) he loves playing with Joy, our Aussie puppy. Both are such great ambassadors for this wonderful breed.
This is a photo of Juno, my two year old Australian Shepherd taken in Kelowna, BC, Canada. She loves anything to do with her ball and learned from a very young age how to play fetch and "drop it" at our feet. Our backyard was an orchard so she would always bring us apples to throw for her thinking they were balls.
