I am a big time animal lover, especially dogs and horses. I have had aussies for the last 20 years and enjoy hiking, camping, skiing, traveling, cooking, and snowshoeing. Originally from Northern CA, I lived in Montana for 10 years before moving to Denver three years ago.
Sneakers is our 6 year old female red merele. She is my love-bug, who LOVES to chase balls and go on long hikes and snowshoeing. She is our little "pouty girl" when she doesn't get what she wants. Kai is our 2 year old "beef wagon" Red Tri male. His name comes from his love of water (Hawaiian for water spirit). He loves anything wet - and lived in his water dish for the first month that we had him, until he got too big to fit in the bowl! He is a fun loving rambunctious guy who loves to play with other dogs. He was an only pup, and is quite the independant free-thinker.
They both are fly ball dogs and Kai is quickly learning to maneuver agility obstacles. Their greatest talent is getting us to do whatever they want us to do!
Hiking, hanging at the dog park, socializing, snowshoeing, agility and fly ball, companion dogs, search and rescue, and general dog obedience.
While searching on the Meetup website I came across the Australian Shepherd Group site (yay!)
My husband and I recently moved here from Montana with our two "hooligans", Sneakers and Kai. We love to hike, especially with the dogs and enjoy the company of other aussie lovers who like to get out doors and who love the breed as much as we do!
It's a great group of fellow aussie dog owners and aussies.
