Profile: Lucy and Banzai are Australian Shepherds. They are very playful and love each other so much. They are protective and loyal and full of energy. But they are also affectionate and LOVE our kids. We call them our "doorbell" because we always know when someone is coming up to our house because they run back and forth up the length of our gate and bark very loud! Great watchdogs! Lucy, the black tri female has turned out to be a hunting dog, bringing all kinds of rodents to our doorstep! (blah!) She is also very independent and very energetic. She is the pack leader and antagonizes our male! Banzai is our male Blue Merle and he is a little shy. He LOVES our kids and tends to be a little more fearful and less outgoing than his sister. He is definitely comfortable in the background. He is loyal and VERY protective. He does most the barking at any strangers yet he is also very loving once he recognizes you. While Lucy is jumping up and down at the UPS man to play, Banzai is backing up as he barks, a little unsure and skeptical. These dogs have been such a wonderful addition to the family. We love them a lot and they bring us so much love and joy! Life is just better with dogs!

Banzai is a playful and loyal dog who loves his owners. He is very protective and very smart. He loves to fetch frisbees and ropes and he loves his sister Lucy!View Profile
Lucy is an adorable Black Tri colored Australian Shepherd who is spastic and wild! She is independent but needs affection too, which is why she cannot seem to stop jumping out of her skin when someone comes outside to play. She is energetic and has a hunting dog inside of her! She often brings little rodents to the door to show them off to us (YUCK!) We love the way she plays with her brother, another Aussie, named Banzai.View Profile
Meet Lucy and Banzai, the proud winners of April's Creative Canine Photo Contest! Lucy, the female black-tri Aussie, was the runt of the litter but she is the pack leader of Banzai! She is very high energy and very independent. She loves to assert her authority over Banzai yet is fully submissive to the rest of us! She is outgoing and friendly and for some reason, loves to hunt! She brings home plenty of critters, dead or alive I am afraid! She also loves to jump for her toys, and she jumps HIGH! Banzai, the Blue Merle male Aussie, is a bit reserved. He prefers his masters much more than Lucy does yet he is skeptical of strangers much more than Lucy is. We call him "Momma's boy" because no matter where I am, there he is. He is sweet and loyal and loving and perfectly happy to submot to his pack leader, Lucy. Even though she is half his size! He is a great retriever and loves playing fetch. His favorite toy is a Frsbee but he has taken to empty water bottles lately. Both dogs bring us so much joy and we are blessed to have them as part of our family. We are looking into agility classes for both of them. Then they can release some more of that intense energy. Great dogs and wonderful with kids.These great photos are brought to you by April's Photo Contest Sponsor, Otis and Lucy Photography.View Profile
