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..

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...

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...

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...

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!!

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?

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.

Run Louie run!

One Happy dog!

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..

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..

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..

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..

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..

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...

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...

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?

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.

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!!

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...

Mia in her chair..

We had a big fire while at Suzanne's and Steve's.
Mia was not to interested in enjoying the zoomies going on so she just sat in her chair and watched.
It was rather chilly out Saturday so the fire felt really great.

Louie and his girlfriend Sam!

We had a great time with the Cole family! We had some awesome chicken on the grill that Steve made along with broccoli casserole, and some wonderful bread that Suzanne made. Of course we had the best dutch oven cherry coppler ever. Mom and Dad had never had that before. Mmmm Suzanne made sure that all of us got to taste the bread.. Thank you Suzanne we will be back real soon for more..

Surfing with Dad..

There she is sucking up again. Milking that zipper for all it is worth..

Friday, November 07, 2008

Heeler's being good?

We are trying to be so good since Callie is healing up. See we are both doing a good "stay" We sure hope she gets better soon. The good stuff is for the birds..
Tomorrow we are off to see Suzanne and Steve and the girls. Callie has to be calm. She usually just stays on the porch anyway so that is a good thing.. We will have pictures for you later...

My shaved tummy!

You can see her shaved little tummy here. She slept most of the evening next to Mom on the couch. Louie and I are a bit jealous of all this attention. She still has all that fire when her downers wear off. Dad thinks that when she gets those stitches out she will wear those us 2 out..

Wednesday, November 05, 2008

She's Home!

Callie is home. We have to keep her on the doggie downers to keep her from running, jumping and climbing stairs.. As you can see they are working... She has to stay calm for 7 to 10 days and then we go back and have her stitches taken out..

Tuesday, November 04, 2008

Where is Callie?

We keep looking in the backyard for that little Callie but we can't find her. Louie does a complete walk around the entire backyard everytime we go out..
The vet called and said she made it through the surgery just fine and that we can pick her up tomorrow.. I think perhaps we do miss that wild thing...

Chewing on my ball!

Hey Charlie Callie is practicing her tennis ball peeling skills. Do you got any tips for her?

Little Miss Callie has to go into the Vet tonight. Mom said she is going to get her zipper put in so she doesn't have any puppies. Mom is kind of silly. She will have her surgery tomorrow and we can pick her up on Wednesday..

Practicing herding?

Since we didn't get to go herding yesterday I thought I needed to practice my skills. The little one makes a good sheep!! She is a bit faster than those sheep but she makes some really good cuts. Who knows maybe she is practicing on me too..

Saturday, November 01, 2008

Hey you guys!

"Louie Zone" again?
Mom and Dad were busy painting again today. How boring. Mom did leave the backdoor open so we could be inside outside dogs..
No herding today. Next weekend we are off to see Suzanne and Steve again. We just can't wait to play with the girls..
