Easter morning WE HAD a very special litter from my girl Ayla.
The puppies are blue merle, black tri, and red merle.
I knew Ayla was special the day I brought her home. She sat in the kitchen and just watched me walk around the kitchen getting supper ready. I was amazed at her focus and intensity. From that moment on she knew and I knew that we had a very special bond. I have been told that once in your life you will have a “heart dog” one that means more than any other. I think Ayla is that to me. She can read my body language and seems to understand every word I say. I wrote down at one time all the commands and words that she knew and would respond to; it was several pages. Since then, Ayla has continued to learn and work very closely at my side.
Ayla works and lives on our farm in Western North Carolina. She loves to go on hikes, play ball, and “get the boogers” more than anything. She is great with children and enjoys playing Frisbee with them. Sometimes we will take her to softball games and let her and all the children entertain each other playing ball or Frisbee. She competes in AKC and USDAA agility trials, and has several titles. She placed first in National Australian Shepherd Club of America’s 2005 pre-nationals beginning jumpers’ trial in 2005! But most importantly she has the personality of an angel, where she shows compassion, love, loyalty, and all the intensity of a brilliant mind. When you look at her you can tell her brain is going 100 miles an hour all the time.
Isn’t it amazing how a human and a dog can bond so deeply? What I have with Ayla is so special, and I want to breed her to share her special genes and color with others. This spring we are planning a very special litter from my girl Ayla. The puppies should be blue merle, black tri, and possibly red merle or red tri. We are waiting to see!!
Her breeding date was Feb 15/16 her eyes were checked Feb 19th! Her hips were rated GOOD.
