To the lake again!

We went to the lake again yesterday and as you can see we didn't get wet. hehe
Of course today the wind is blowing and the temperature has dropped.. No lake today..
We did see a little armored buddy while on our walk at the lake. I tried to get him but mom didn't think it was a good idea. What does she know.
Yepper it is an armadillo. This is the first one we have seen at the lake. Mom says they are born dead along side the road.. Silly mom..

I win!

Here we are at the lake yesterday. Callie is trying to get the best of Louie. Of course I think Louie is just letting her win. She does look pretty intimidating though..
We had a wonderful time until some people showed up. When that happens we can't run free with our leashes dragging.

Monday, December 29, 2008

Look what we did today!!

We had a beautiful day today so Mom and Dad packed us up in the Heelermobile and off to the lake we went. Of course this is us not getting into the water. Mom said the water was to cold. What does she know. She doesn't have a fur coat..

She must be up to something..

That little girl is still such a pest. Mom believes she just sits and tries to figure out what she can chew on next. Right now she is playing zoomies, in the house, with Dad's slipper in her mouth. When will she grow up??

I got them scared!

You got it we went herding again today. Louie did really well. He was doing what they call "fetching" the sheep to mom. He got behind the sheep while mom led. Everyone was so proud of him. He first tried with the goats, oh we didn't get any pictures of that, he did it like a pro..

Christmas napper!

Mom made some excellent prime rib for Xmas lunch. It was so good the little one decided she had to have a nap.. Dad said there are still bones left maybe we will get one of those today??

Watching for Santa..

Merry Christmas to all our friends around the world. We hope Santa brings you all the treats you can eat.
Have a safe and happy one...

Man this having Mom and Dad at home is rough. Mom was cleaning up stairs and she must have went up and down the stairs 100 bazillion times. You know mom has to have 3 shadows every trip.

The weather is all jacked up again this AM. It appears to be misting out there. Of course Mom is teasing Dad that it is snowing. Dad says "Ya right!!"

Monday, December 22, 2008

Are you done yet Mom?

This is Louie's favorite position when Mom is working on her computer. As you can see he doesn't add much insight.. He appears to be bored.
Mom and Dad are off for the next 2 weeks with us. Today the plan is to finish the Xmas shopping and get the house cleaned up a bit.
The weather is cool and cloudy. Like 32 degrees and the wind is blowing so it seems a bit cooler.. You think maybe it will snow in Texas?

Sunday, December 21, 2008

Come on Mom!!

Louie is still working on herding those sheep. Here he has them pushed into a corner. He isn't as intimidating as I am since he usually can walk right up to them. Mom uses a vibrating collar on him to get his attention but it is kind of a challenge. Sometimes mom just say "Louie I wish you could hear." More times than not he does understand. I still think it is funny when Mom is hugging on him giving him instructions in his ear.. Dah Mom deaf dog.... Mom says even if never gets it he is having fun doing what he was bred to do, "herd" and he has a job...

Saturday, December 20, 2008

What is Dad doing?

The goats were not cooperating today. First Marti and Venus tried to herd them and they just wouldn't do anything. Then Lori got her dog Mavrick out and he couldn't get them to herd. Well Lori said "That's enough, where is Gus." Yepper I was the big guns. Those goats didn't have a chance. Of course there was this one that wouldn't do anything so Dad scooped him up and carried him. I stayed real close to make sure Dad did it right..

Friday, December 19, 2008

I see you Louie!

Callie has her eyes on Louie. Not sure who is going to attack first. As you can see she still has those Dumbo ears going. To bad they are all decorations she could really use them.. Each of them practices their stalking on the other..
We have a beautiful day here in Texas. It is like 75 degrees and the sun is shinning. Sure hope this weather stays around for a while..

Thursday, December 18, 2008


This is the way that silly girl sleeps. Mom tried to get her sleeping but she woke up. She was sound asleep in this position.
We have a really sloppy day here today. It was foggy and wet this AM. The weatherman says warm tomorrow and Saturday and then the arctic front comes in again on Sunday... What is up with this weather?

I got them Dad!

I was supposed to put the sheep in the corner and look I did it. I even did my "down" like Dad told me. Dad was so proud of me.
Still cold here in Texas. We had a bit of rain and some flurries last night so the bridges were iced over this AM. Mom made it into work with no problems. Darn we were hoping she would stay home with us..

Monday, December 15, 2008

When can I go?

Callie goes with us herding but she just sits there and watches. She oh so wants to get out there with those goats. Besides they are still her size!!
Yesterday we had 80 degree weather and this AM it was 29F. Can you believe that. The wind is blowing like 50 mph and it is just plain cold out there.. What is up with this weather. Of course it is the humans that don't like the cold. Us heeler's have nice warm fur jackets so we don't mind at all..

Sunday, December 14, 2008

Mom he's deaf!

Here is a good example of how goofy Mom is. Can you see her. She is talking to Louie, telling him where to go. Dah Mom he is deaf!! He can't hear you.... He does have an unusual way of kind of knowing exactly what she is saying though. You think maybe the pup has some heeler instincts?

Saturday, December 13, 2008

The stand off!

I thought I was going to challenge that goat but the goat had other ideas. Mom missed the picture of me actually getting head butted.. The little goat was really persistent almost as much as I was.

Friday, December 12, 2008

What a big stick!

Louie found a huge stick to chew on. He doesn't really care how big it is as long as it is tasty... Callie can jack this one but she has a hard time running with it. She usually drops it and Louie gets it back..

Thursday, December 11, 2008

Who's winning now?

As you can see she is growing. She seems to have the upper paw on Louie.. He still has her when it comes to a zoomies contest. He likes to just tease her by loping right behind her..
Well another unusual day in Texas weather. This AM it was 29 degrees and tonight on the way home it was 61. You never know what to wear here..

Playing in the fog..

We were up yesterday morning before the sun actually came up. Mom caught a picture of us playing in the fog. Mom is sorry the picture is a bit blurry but those red heeler's are so fast.. Callie thinks she is Miss Princess of the bench here.. Jacking that crazy brush again..

Sunday, December 07, 2008

Everybody Was Kungfu Fighting!

Callie is growing up so fast. Look she is almost as tall as Louie. They are practicing for the next Paw-lympic's! This is their kungfu moves!
Beautiful day in Texas today. Just right for practicing all our techniques!
For all you snow dwellers Dad found this cool link of a dog having a blast.. We have a feeling Khyra would really be good at this one!

Saturday, December 06, 2008

Happy Days!!

We have a really nice day here in Texas today. The sun is shining and just a bit cool. It is definitely a good day for heeler's to play outside.. See how happy I am? I am busy watching the kids play hoping to get my chance to jump in..

Friday, December 05, 2008

Gus what do you hear?

I hear something and that Louie is on guard patrol. He doesn't hear but he has learned to take my lead.. Callie is oblivious to us. She if off somewhere playing zoomies with herself. Silly girl..

Thursday, December 04, 2008

It's mine!!

They are at it again.. That brush sure makes its rounds. We can do this for hours.
Thankful Thursday, we are so thankful for our brush and Mom and Dad. They always make sure we get to herding class on time and of course all the wonderful treats we get... We are also thankful for all our new and old blogger friends.. We really love visiting all of your blogs each day...

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

I love you Gus!

Callie is sucking up again.. She thinks if she loves on me I won't wrestle with her.. Although that is one of her favorite pass times..
Good news on the computer. We were able to recover all mom's pictures.. She is ecstatic.

Tuesday, December 02, 2008


Callie can fly. Just look she is flying over that log. She is doing one of her zoomie things where she loves to run and jump..
Well Mom is using Sis's computer today. She is hoping she hasn't lost all the pictures that are one her computer. She has been taking pictures since 2006. She has pictures of when I was a pup on that thing. Guess we should have been more careful when we were rough housing yesterday..

Monday, December 01, 2008


The wild heelers three got to wrestling tonight and knocked mom's laptop on the floor, now the hard drive is going, click, click click. We are hoping that it is only the boot sector but have our doubts !!!!

We will keep everyone posted ...............

Sunday, November 30, 2008


Although it was a bit nippy today and the wind was blowing we got to go herding. As you can see we actually got to herd the goats.. The idea is for Mom to lead and us to follow behind the goats. See what a good job Louie is doing..

Saturday, November 29, 2008

My Brush!!

This brush is the best toy ever.. We can fight over it and chew on it and if we take it to Mom she will even through it.. Of course we had to jack it from Callie...

Friday, November 28, 2008

Can you see me?

The little girl thinks she is hiding here. Dah we can see her.. See Louie's ears in the front of the picture? He has definitely spotted her...

Thursday, November 27, 2008

Happy Turkey Day!!

Happy Turkey Day to everyone in the US. Hopefully all our other friends around the world are having an awesome day too..

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

Daddy's Girl!

Callie thinks it is fun to help Dad with the computer.. Of course she also always jumps into his chair when he isn't there. She likes trying to drink what ever Dad has left there. Dad doesn't think this lap business is going to work when she gets to be 40 pounds!! Guess she had better enjoy it while she can...

Tuesday, November 25, 2008


Can I help Dad? Mom and Dad were canning apples today. Dad was busy peeling and Louie was busy eating the peelings.. They did manage to get like 16 pints of what you call apple pie filling. It looks really yummy. Now we have to get Mom busy at making the pies!!

Monday, November 24, 2008

Just a bluff!

The little one was out playing chase one more time. Mom caught her as she zoomed by..
Mom and Dad were home today painting again! Louie managed to get paint on himself. He always likes to lay were Mom is painting.. Maybe Mom needs to put up a wet paint sign?

Sunday, November 23, 2008

Huddle Up!

What better to do on a Sunday than to huddle up and decide on the play. Shall we play zoomies or bittie face? Hey why not both!!
Mom and Dad have been busy again today. Dad painting an Mom cleaning. She wants to get things in shape for Turkey Day.. Mmm Turkey!! We can hardly wait. Sis and her boyfriend Jason are coming over and of course brother Toph will be here.

Saturday, November 22, 2008

Run Louie run!

One Happy dog!

Friday, November 21, 2008

Fiesty dog!

Callie is getting so big she even thinks she can take me? With that bittie face stuff and those zoomies.. I still am bigger but it won't be long and she will have me.. I guess I better get my licks in now..

Thursday, November 20, 2008

What big ears you have!

You think maybe she is growing into her ears? We sure hope so. With ears those size she is going to be one big threat soon..
It is a bit cool here today but Heeler's don't really mind. The cooler the more reason to play zoomies in the backyard..

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

Play time?

That little girl is teasing again.. She hasn't slowed down one bit after her zipper installation.. Mom takes us out when she gets home to let us zoom around the backyard to wear off some of our energy. It has worked today. We are all napping right now..

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

Another friend at the Zoo!

This is Hermie one of our sugar gliders. She is one of 5 in our house. All the Heeler's have to go into their houses and the cats have to go outside while Dad lets the little ones out to play.
Pedro thought we needed to post a picture. Cousin It is in Dad's shirt and wouldn't come out for the photo shoot..

Monday, November 17, 2008


Lori our herding instructor got some new members for her flock. You got it, they are goats. They are just little now and so cute so no herding them yet. Mom even got to pet them for a bit.. Lori said the are a bit more intelligent than sheep so the dogs will have a bigger challenge when herding them... We sure can't wait until they get big enough..

Sunday, November 16, 2008

Louie gets his chance!

Louie was working on him fetch too. He was a bit confused as was Mom. The idea is for Louie to get behind the sheep and bring them to mom. Well Louie changed his strategy yesterday. He became the aggressor which was unlike Louie. He enjoyed chasing the sheep for the first time. We are still trying to figure out what changed...

Saturday, November 15, 2008

I got them!

We were busy learning our fetch today. Here Gus is bringing them back to Dad. Of course it is supposed to be a more controlled fetch. Not chase them around the field as fast as you can only to bring them back to Dad..
Little Callie even got a chance to bring the sheep into the smaller pen. Well she was busy eating sheep poop and not really paying any attention to the sheep...

Friday, November 14, 2008

She's back!

She back and feisty as ever.. She just couldn't wait to be off those doggie downers and be free from the leash. She hasn't stopped the zoomies and bitty face for a day. Oh well she did slow down to sleep but bounced right up again this AM ready to play..
Mom came home and let us all run. I think she has another motive in mind here.. Perhaps wearing us out so we will be calm in the house?

Thursday, November 13, 2008

Who's in Jail?

We had to stay off the porch while the humans talked smart and ate. What is up with that. Why wouldn't they want 8 dogs on the porch with them??
They did come out and play with us after they were finished eating their yummy food.

Wednesday, November 12, 2008

Daisy and Sam.

A few more pictures of our fun at Suzanne's and Steve's. Daisy and Sam were just chillin in the shade.. They sure look happy!!

Tuesday, November 11, 2008


Poor Molly had surgery a few weeks ago so she wasn't allowed to come and play by the fire. As you can see she kept he eyes on all the goings on from in the house..
Next time we visit she should be well enough to run with the pack...
