Arrival Story:
I got Shep from a woman who was moving to Atlanta and couldn't take him. She had rescued him from an Eckerd parking lot, and when I met him, I took him home with me the very next day.

Shep is very lovable and likes to lean up against you as you pet him. He's also a big talker - emitting high-pitched "mmmmmms" when he wants to play, and softer sounds when he's tired and ready for bed. He's a little dramatic too, especially when on frisbee patrol. As most Australian Shepherds, he's quick and agile, but sometimes, just for fun, he takes exaggerated leaps across the grass like a ballerina on stage. Needless to say, it's hilarious.

Forums Motto:
"Frisbee Now!"

Springing Forward....

Means only one thing - bugs. Lots of them flying around (ruff!) like tiny frisbees waiting to be caught in my mouth. Tasty though they were, I couldn't continue the hobby. The story below will tell you why, and hopefully inspire you to give them up...for good.

Bugs - By Shep

I used to eat them quite lot... on a cot, while smoking pot, and sometimes even on a tot!

But, I lost my friends, the petting waned, "It's because your mouth stinks!" my darling owner explained.

So instead of eating bugs, slugs, and grasshoppers green, I eat grass, toys, and big plastic things!

My breath is better, my teeth are in good shape that ? yes! my owner's petting me on the nape!

For help recovering from your bug addiction, please call 1-800-BUG-STOP.

Thank You,
