Ok so I am trying this again! (Unfortunately, my DP account was highjacked at a public library a couple of weeks ago and everything I had posted/uploaded was changed or erased! People these days ... haha) So take two.
I have two dogs, Evee and Diesel Wayne (yes, he has a middle name).
Evee is a 10-year-old Bichon Frise. She was born on Christmas Eve in 1999 (hence her name) and my family brought her home for my birthday in February 2000. She is a very sweet dog and has such a personality! She recently passed her CGC test and is training to become a therapy dog. I also do agility with her and we're hoping to go to our first trial sometime this summer. She absolutely loves jumping and her favorite obstacle is the A-frame (which is probably like Mount Everest to her). Evee also has a surprisingly high prey/chase drive --- she chases squirrels, rabbits, and even horses! As far as treats go, she's obsessed with carrots. As soon as she hears the vegetable drawer open, she's right at your feet! Even though she is 10-years-old, she has the energy and mind of a young dog!
Diesel Wayne is almost 10-months-old now. He was born on July 16, 2009 and I adopted him in August 2009 when he was just 5.5-weeks-old (way too early, I know). He's 1/2 Australian Shepherd and 1/2 Beagle. He came from an accidental litter - his mom was a beautiful hunting Beagle and his dad was the neighbor's working blue merle Australian Shepherd. I saw both of his parents and they are lovely! (And just a note, the beagle's owner has since gotten her spayed.) Diesel is currently in agility, disc dog, and herding training. He is definitely 95% Aussie and 5% Beagle (and the 5% being his Beagle ears)! He is a super high energy puppy (the 2-mile jogs I do with him don't even make him break a sweat), has a very high herding drive (he herds anything that moves), and is very intelligent (I have to always be on my feet with him)! Once his growth plates have fully closed, we'll start training more seriously and start competing when he is old enough.
Anyway, I think that's a long enough introduction! I look forward to talking with you all and getting to know the DP community better!
--- AMAM, Diesel Wayne, and Evee
