Ever since Sara went to the Rainbow Bridge in December 1999, momma had been wanting to get another dog. I am a beautiful blue merle Australian Shepherd, with copper and white trim. I am also the same color as momma's other two Aussies, Felix and Oscar, who went over the Bridge before Sara did.
Max and I lived in our home in Orlando until December 2000, when we moved with momma to Indiana. She got a new job there - she works very hard. They have funny stuff called "snow" up here - I just know they don't have such weird stuff in Texas or Florida! It LOOKS like it's solid, but you go and bite it and it disappears. Anyway, momma will make snowballs out of it and will throw them for us to chase.
Momma built a new house, just for us. It is very nice and Max and I love to run around inside and outside. Max is the bestest brother a dog could ever have - we chase each other all the time, and he lets me play tug-o-war with all of our toys. I'm not as crazy for toys as Max is, but I like trying to get them from him!
My other momma, Ginger, sent a picture of my father, "Cutter," sitting in MY HOLE!!!!!! I want him to know that that hole is MINE, since I am afterall the great LJ! Here's that picture - can you BELIEVE it?
Here I am at 7 weeks
And this is at 10 months - haven't I grown up?
Momma took Max and me to the beauty parlor, and this is what I look like now:
Momma e-mailed these to some of her friends (including my first momma, Ginger) and they all said that I was an extremely handsome dude!
