INTRODUCING ... Strider!

I am an animal lover and currently own 3 dogs. No, this is not a typo. Three dogs are an awful lot of work but it is a labour of love. I thought I would introduce my Australian Shepherd, Strider.

He is a very intelligent dog and his charm and character has won over both Hubs and myself. He loves to travel with us and I will share some of our adventures.

Strider tending his herd at the farm (shhh, don't tell him about the fence).

Strider swimming in the Koi pond.

Strider hiking in the woods.

Okay, I know he can't really drive a tractor. I guess it's evident that I'm having a love affair with my dog. To me, he can do it all! Pets are precious creatures.

I wish you many happy adventures with yours!

Cheers - Lisa


  1. What a cute dog! He looks so happy!


  2. Hi Lisa! Love the photos of Strider. He's beautiful! They bring back memories of our beloved Kodey who was also an Aussie. He went to The Rainbow Bridge about 7 years ago now. Aussies are so very intelligent and caring and fun, aren't they? We loved him dearly and miss him still.

    We have 2 dogs and 3 cats and love them all like children!

    Enjoying your new blog - and glad to meet another animal lover! :)

  3. Thanks for visiting me Lisa! I look forward to seeing what your up to! Looks like you have some amazing property! You must live somewhat around here to have been to is a nice town!

    I'll check in soon!


  4. Isn't Strider quite the man about the world! I loved seeing all these photos of him. He is so handsome. I see why you adore him so. Of course I bet you'd love him just the same even if he wasn't so attractive. I'd love to have an Aussie some day. I had a border collie when I was a child and he was so smart and sweet. He spent a lot of time herding our cats. He was kind to them but they did get a little tired of having to walk in a group and the way he told them to all the time. Can't wait to see your others.

  5. Pets are wonderful creatures! And I am very much an animal lover myself. But I must say, dogs seem to really know how to endear themselves to us better than most other animals.

    Give Strider a big hug from me. ;)
