We got a pup! Kids are sure excited as are we. It will be an adventure for a clueless dog raising rookie like me. The kids and "Gus". That one on the left takes after his mother. :lol:

Playing with an old piece of cloth.


This playing is sure tiring for a midget canine

Pups are cute even just laying around

"Gus" is an Aussie/Border/Kelpie/Heeler little guy. He won't know if he's heading or heeling so he and I should get along fine. :wink:

Suggestions are welcome. We are having fun with him and hope he and the kids have a blast growing up together.

Cute pup your kids will have a great time with him.
As for aussie/kelpie LOL make sure he is not left alone with any garbage in the can...it will be all over the kitchen.
Heeler gotta have a good fence ...they tend to go on walk about.
They have selective hearing and always want to be loved. Caution around cats they think they are playing BUT LOL

He resembles his owner already, big, club feet and lazing around on the lawn. :wink:

He looks really lovable. Glad your kiddies got a pup.
With the breeding he has, you might wish you got a female.....
not so hard headed. :nod: :gag: :lol2:

Nothing worse than a Kelpie male. :lol:
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Cute pup. :D

Get a flap of inner tube for the tug o war. It doesn't catch of their teeth. Put a piece on a twine and attach to a light pole and you can get him to chase it and teach him his sides as in "Away to me" and "Come by" as well as "down" and "walk up".

The border collie might give him enough brains to make a ok dog :o
