Arrival Story:
Effie was rescued 2/22/03. We recently lost our GSD of nine years after a sudden illness. We moved to GA from PA and took the loss extra hard. We saw Effie on Petfinder and her dad couldn't resist that sweet smiling face. It was love & sheppy kisses at first sight. Effie's whole story can be viewed at www.gashepherd.org, happy endings.

Effie's middle name, Bahnhof, is German for stop or station. Effie was picked up by animal control after sitting on a street corner waiting for 2 days. She was waiting for us. Interested in rescuing your own Effie? If you're a GA resident visit www.gashepherd.org. If not, we can help you find a rescue in your area.

Sunday Mom & Dad asked me to go for a ride...fun! We drove far away, up 400, past familiar towns & strip malls to Dawsonville. When we finally stopped there were sheep running across the driveway! Big white sheep being chased by a dog. I was not scared.

We went to the back of the farm to an enclosed area, where dogs were running after sheep in a fenced area. 3 big white fluffy sheep. Each weighed 100 lbs. I got a turn!!! I was hooked up to a long line by a nice trainer. She led me around behind the sheep. At first I did not understand what to do; I looked back at Mom and Dad with the video camera. The other dog outside the fence was interesting too.

But then my instinct kicked in, it was OK to chase and herd the sheep! I was in my zone. FUN! Did I say FUN! Because it was more fun than day care, dog parks, waking Mom up early, or birthday parties. She led me both ways and then 1 sheep was all mine. I tried catching him and almost took a nip while Mom gasped and said lamb kabobs. What’s a kabob? I was corrected and stopped; I just wanted to catch him so he could join the others. I chased them for awhile and was so waggy and happy. I did not want to stop but they said I was getting tired and was doing well. Not all dogs take to herding, some have no desire. Not me!!

We watched the experienced dogs herd the sheep and then went to lunch outside, pizza, not lamb ;) I got crust!!

Best part is, I get to do it again in the next month or so! Till then, I can watch my video.

iPod Dance

Mom had her iPod on all AM, even at feeding time. Usually I am very jumpy and excited to eat, like I am starving. I jump and spin around and then Mom makes me do Jazz Paws (2 paws up). Well when I did Jazz Paws, one paw came down and tangled into the iPod cord. It fell out of Mom’s ear and was wrapped around my paw, I ran away and it would not get loose, when Mom tried to unhook me, the iPod device swung around and that scared me too. I was spinning around tangled in the iPod. Finally Mom stopped me and untangled me. I got a cookie treat.

That better not happen again!

Ta, Effie
