National Pet Week: Tuesday's Give Away!

 Happy Tuesday Everyone!  I'm really excited to introduce to you my canine crew: Oakley, Jewel, Hoss, and Shep.

Oakley is an Australian Shepherd and our special needs dog. We adopted Oakley when he was 6 months old from an Aussie rescue site.  He is mostly blind due to poor breeding practices.  Mentally, he will always be our eternal puppy even though he is the oldest of the bunch at 8 years old.  Oakley is accident prone and has broken more things than I care to count. We have had to just learned to keep a large supply of super glue on hand. :-)  Oakley is always ready to play and likes his Frisbee best!

Jewel is truly the "jewel" of the family.  She is a Border Collie mix and the only girl in the bunch.  We rescued Jewel from the pound when she was just 4 months old.  We had gone to the pound that day to donate some blankets and supplies, when my kids begged me to go look in the back at the dogs.  Well that was a mistake (blessing) because as soon as I saw that sweet little face, I knew she was coming home with us.  Jewel is a really special dog.  From day one she has been Oakley's  "seeing eye" dog.  She is his constant companion and will stick up for him against the other dogs.  When playing fetch she will run over to the ball or Frisbee and "show" Oakley where to find it.  She is also a master at agility and loves to jump over things. :-)  

Hoss is a Miniature Australian Shepherd and serving as the party spokesdog for our Rockin' Pet Linky Party.  He is a sweet, quiet boy who is 100 percent devoted to his mom.  When he was younger, Hoss competed in agility and rally through 4-H and loved it!  Hoss is a snuggler and wants to be next to you no matter where you are in the house. :-)

Shep is also a Miniature Australian Shepherd and litter-mate to Hoss. He is the smallest of the bunch, but don't let his size fool you.  He's intelligent, quick, high energy and likes to think that he is in charge of things.  He is amazing at agility and will play ball all day long if you let him. :-)
