Puppies: Willow, Ivy, Max, Owen


Profile: I am a photographer, and an animal and nature lover, happiest when I'm walking, riding or skiing my farm's trails with my dogs. My husband and I have 2 dogs, a horse and and 2 cats. I live in southern Ontario, but have also lived in Germany, Colorado and Phoenix (husband was air force pilot). Although most have been pure bred sighthounds, all our dogs except Owen have been rescues. All our dogs are trained to stay on our 6 km network of groomed trails, so they have a free run with me every day.

Willow is a Blue Tick/Beagle cross, and was adopted from the humane society at 6 months old. She has a great life with us... she has a daily walk on our farm's 6 km of trails, with her sister Ivy and her brother Max. She also comes with me when I ski and ride, and LOVES to catch frisbies. She is my barn companion, and joins me each evening when I bring the horses in. She will check to see that Grace (our barn kitty) is in for the evening, and she stands where the horses are to turn to come in to their stalls, ensuring that they each go where they are supposed to. Willow is the BEST cuddler... she will stretch alongside me, wrapped in my arms, sleeping deeply.

Ivy was a racing greyhound for 5 years, at which point we adopted her. She and and our other dogs, Willow and Max, are great buddies, and love their daily walks on our farm's 6 km of trails. Ivy has learned to use her long pointy nose to flip your hand onto the top of her head for patting. She has also learned that a quick waggle of her nose in your crotch (!) will also prompt a quick patting... rather startling to visitors, but we think it is cute! She still has the scars on her face from the racing muzzle, but all the emotional scars have disappeared.

Max is our adopted afghan hound, coming to us at 5 years old when his former family (who loved him dearly) moved from the country to the city. Like all afghans, Max seems more like a monkey/kitten cross than a dog... then throw in a bit of diva movie star and you've pretty much got it! Being an afghan, he took a bit longer to train, but now enjoys a free run every day with me, Willow and Ivy. If you would like to see a video of him shortly after he was fully trained, here's a link for you: Thanks for all your sweet comments!

I’m Owen! My breeder did an awesome job of picking the best canine Mom and Dad to make me PERFECT! I’m a frisky little Golden Retriever and I live on a farm with my Mom and Dad, a horse, two kitties and Max, my afghan brother. I’m just a kid but I can already do lots of tricks, and I’ve had my first swim in the pond! The world is my chewstick, but I’m getting counseling in that department. I love everyone and Mom thinks I’d make a great service dog. I love helping around the house, with sweeping and dishwashing being my specialties.
