This is Taylor. He is a tri male out of Cola and Rustler. He is staying at Heavenbound to make some loving, smaller, agility dogs. He is already doing some 180 degree turns in midair like his dad. He is learning about cats but he just can't quite resist pushing his luck. He loves to carry a ball back and forth through the yard just for the shear joy of runnng. His blaze has a cute little zigzag as it goes up his forehead.
This is a slideshow of our last litter with Aspen and Cisco. I am leaving it up because puppies are just too darn cute. We don't have any litters coming at this time.
Puppy videos-just because they are fun to watch. If you have trouble getting videos to play, try using Chrome as your browser.
I thought it would be fun to put up some of the variations of blue merle coloring. The different shades that fall into "blue merle" are quite interesting. Some of the coloring was more common back in the 70's and 80's. Some colors crop up by surprise in our "modern aussies" like Rustler and Lilac. The cryptic merles aren't as common as they were. Some colors aren't as accepted in the show ring but are fun variations that make these dogs unique.
Tanzy and Smokey
Tanzy and Smokey
This is Tanzy with her special kitty, Smokey. They act like arch rivals much of the time, but they actually are best friends. Smokey teases Tanzy until she chases her. It can look dangerous to the cat but the game has gone on for months so it must be just a game they play. Smokey stayed at Heavenbound from "kittenhood" and was a kitten herself when Lily came. Smokey spent many minutes nursing from Lily while she laid on the front porch. Amazingly, Lily allowed it. Smokey tries rubbing on all the dogs but only a few of them put up with her. The others walk away.
Now Smokey has a new pal, Aspen. I had to photo Aspen and Smokey through the window so they wouldn't know I was watching them.
