The main reason for our trip was to get some friends pups their first experience at the beach. One of our friends was going to Nags Head for a family vacation so that gave us all a reason to load up the cars and head out. Young & old alike you can tell by the … [Read more…]
We had the chance for a quick trip to meet some other sheepie friends this weekend so of course we had to do it. Sheepdog people are a loyal (& a bit crazy) bunch and just love to get together to enjoy watching their pups. And no matter where we go there are always people … [Read more…]
When I looked at the triptik Daisy Mae prepared for our vacation, the place I was most excited about visiting was Maine.

Temperatures in the 90’s and sheepdogs don’t go well together so the gang and I headed up above 3500 ft to cool off for a while.
Over the years we have passed through and visited the areas around Charlottesville, Virginia and found it to be very nice. Recently I have been spending some extended time up here so me and the pups have gotten to do some exploring. From the look of all the pictures I’ve been going through after our … [Read more…]
