Please note, we DO NOT breed so called "mini's" or
"toy's" and ask that you read the
following regarding them...
Recently there has been a rise in the movement to
breed so called “miniature”, and sadly, even a “toy” version of what
people would like you to believe are "variations" of the Australian
Shepherd. THEY ARE NOT!
Neither of these are recognized by any of the
official Australian Shepherd clubs/organizations. The Australian Shepherd
Club of America (ASCA), the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC), the American
Kennel Club (AKC), nor the United States Australian Shepherd Association,
Inc. (USASA), recognize nor register these dogs. The dogs are only
recognized by their own breed clubs which have been formed since they
were denied recognition by the above clubs. They are NOT a 'variety'
of the true Australian Shepherd, they are a totally separate breed.
We do not breed "mini's"
or "toy's", will not allow our males to be
used to breed to a "mini" or "toy" and will not recommend a breeder to you because
we personally do not support the purposeful breeding of "miniature” or
“toy” dogs that are then passed off as Australian Shepherds.
We breed our Aussies to the ASCA standards of excellence. This club require all of their
members to abide by their rules and regulations and their Code of Ethics,
and to be ever vigilant in the preservation and protection of the true

Just A Dog?
I did not write this but I'm sure
the man how did was a kindred spirit, I couldn't have expressed my own thoughts
as eloquently as he did...
From time to time, people tell
me, "lighten up, it's just a dog," or "that's a lot of money for just a dog".
They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs
involved for "just a dog".
Some of my proudest moments have
come about with "just a dog". Many hours have passed and my only company
was "just a dog", but I did not once feel slighted. Some of my saddest
moments have been brought about by "just a dog", and in those days of darkness,
the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you, too, think it's "just a
dog" then you will probably understand phases like "just a friend", "just a
sunrise" or "just a promise". "Just a dog" brings into my life the
very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. "Just a dog"
brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.
Because of "just a dog" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to
the future. So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an
embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the
past, and the pure joy of the moment. "Just a dog" brings out what's good
in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.
I hope that someday they can
understand that it's not "just a dog" but the thing that gives me humanity and
keeps me from being "just a man."
So the next time you hear the
phrase "just a dog" just smile...because they "just don't understand".

One Man's Special Tribute To A Dog
The one absolutely unselfish friend that a
man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that
never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog.
A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and
in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground where
the wintery winds blow, and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his
master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the
sores and wounds that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He
guards the sleep of his Pauper master as if he were a prince.
When all other friends desert, he remains.
When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his
love as the sun in it's journey through the heavens. If misfortune drives the
master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog
asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger,
to fight against his enemies.
And when the last scene of all comes, and
death takes the master in it's embrace, and his body is laid away in the cold
ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by the graveside
will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad, but open
in alert watchfulness, faithful and true, even in death.
~~ From a speech given by Former Senator
George Graham Vest of Missouri. Delivered in 1870 when he was acting as a lawyer
in a suit against a man who had killed the dog of his client...He won the case.

These days we're all inundated with
information promoted by "animal rights" activists & their often
misleading advertising. We encourage all interested puppy buyers
for information about PETA, HSUS & others who
are trying to stop us from owning any animal, including our well loved
family members, aka "pets".
Another great site, full of up to date
information, is available from Americans Supporting Animal Ownership:
We are also always
happy to help with information about
other litters we know about...we know lots of good breeders all over the
world that we can
refer you to.
