I am a huge dog lover and even some what of a dog whisperer (all dogs love me ) I grew up with a beagle named Maggie and she was the best dog. (thats me on the left) Well over time I got myself a house with a nice big fenced yard, and managed to get in a position where I can work from home. Over the years I have narrowed my sights to the australian shepherd breed, a few friends have them and I love their intelligence and demeanor. Not to mention they are gorgeous! So my boss' wife's family breeds them and has quite an impressive operation going on. Canyon Creek Aussies I had been talking with Camille who runs the breeding operation down in central Utah, and her sister Michelle (boss' wife) lives in Utah Valley and helped get everything arranged. They usually have quite a few pups available and after watching for over a year, I decided on Marley. Her parents are some of the best dogs they have and have a lower-drive personality which I definitely prefer. I picked her up a few days ago and Camille loved her so much, she offered to refund me all the money AND pay me $500 haha. More the reason to keep her! I've never had a puppy before so it's definitely been a little challenging, but I am getting used to things as is she. SO excited to finally have this girl in my life and to go on tons of adventures in the cruiser with her! She has already been on a few car rides and does SUPER well. Just mellows out and goes along for the ride. Anyway just wanted to share the fun news! You will all definitely see lots of pictures as she grows up.
