1530 post Mom is hanging it up..

Gus, enjoying the sunshine with a good roach...
Callie are you hiding in the weeds?
Louie just watching the action.
Well Mom has been posting almost everyday since 2006, 1530 posts in all. She has decided that maybe she needs a break.. Everyone has watched Louie and Callie grow up to be awesome deaf adults with great herding skills and wild antics. Gus has watched over them the entire time.
We love all of you that have followed us along the way. Thanks so much for being our friends. If you want to catch up a bit we will post a bit on Facebook's Dogs with blogs..
Mom will leave the blog up for a while if you wish to review our lives.. Thanks again for everyones wonderful comments and friendship.. I have an email address gus0003@gmail(dot)com if any of you want to stay in touch.. Who knows Mom may change her mind at sometime..

Congrats on an awesome number of posts, but we are very sad. It seems like we are losing a lot of old friends for one reason or another. We aren't on FB, sorry, but we wish you all many years of heeler fun. Hope you will be back one day.

Woos, the OP Pack and Mom

We're sorry to see your mom hang up her blogging pen. She's done a fantastic job of raising Louie & Callie online with Louie. We hope this will just be a break.

We're seldom on FB, but not sure we know you on DWB there.

Thanks for the great posts.

One post a week, just one. Now that is workable, isn't it? I mean for us Non-Facebookers, anyway?

Hooray for the great job with the pups, turning them into great herders.

Cheers and hugs,

We totally understand the need for a break away from the blogging world. Sometimes real life is much more important. We wish you well.
your pals,
Bruce the cat & sharon too:)

Elyse and Riley said...

Oh no!! That is a lot of posting though!! We love reading about the 3 Heelers lives...Gus reminds me so much of Riley. We'll be here if Mom ever decides to change her mind!

Congrats on so many posts and such a long-running blog!!

Elyse and Riley

P.S.--Our word verification is "crown!" You get the crown for blogging so long!!

Chester said...

I am sad to see my favorite heeler's leave DogBlogville and am sorry that I haven't visited as I should. Mom and I totally understand your decision and have been toyin' with the idea of hangin' it up while still on somewhat of a good note. It takes time and effort and sumtimes we wonder why we do it. On the other paw we are afraid to hang it up altogether for fear of sumthin' fun we want to post about.

All in all-we wish you the very best in your travels-whether you change your mind or not!

WOOF!
Chester & Mom ;0=)

How did I miss this? I've missed your post over the last few days, but figured you were taking a break!

I'm going to seriously miss my afternoon coffee with the Three Heelers Wild, your trips to the lake, your adventures in sheepherding and the AWESOME photography!

I hope this doesn't have anything to do with Dad thinking mom's only woth a gallon of milk!

1530 posts is a whole lot of posting!

We don't do FB, so we're hoping you'll update once in awhile.

Thanks for sharing your lives with us. One of these days Stumpy and I will come looking for you. Either in the northwoods or Texas...maybe both!

Wishing you the best, ALWAYS!
xox Stumpy and me

The Thundering Herd said...

We do lurk on FB DWB so look forward to your posts there, but we will miss our heeler mix. But we certainly understand the decision.

Take a break and return when you can. Some is better than none.

the dog shrink said...

I haven't been a "regular" here, but do have this blog saved and on feed. I'm sorry to hear you are finished,but understand. One thing -- couldn't you leave the blog up for oh, I don't know -- permanently? Just don't add to it, but don't remove it? Please? I write a lot of dog articles and it's not often I find such great info to reference.
