Hi-five, rolls over, sit, sit-stay, sit-stay-come, leave it, bring it, down, down-stay & go 'round, weaving thru my legs, & back up. Currently taking agility classes.
Shelby is my 3rd Aussie. I went 2 yrs after I put my last Aussie down. When my friend had a litter & called for me to come see them - I was "hooked". Who can resist such a cute little puppy? But I had missed not having my faithful companion so I was seriously thinking about getting a dog. The timing just seemed right & that's how Shelby came into my life. :-)
Shelby-the little tornado!

Well, it's Halloween today. We usually go camping on Halloween weekend. Mom & Dad always decorate our campsite with lots of scary stuff. But this yr we didn't go. I can't say that I was upset about not going though. The last Halloween camping trip I spent most of my time barking at all the spooks & scary things in our campsite. I didn't like them at all & especially when they would move & make noises.
Well, Aunt Nila got good news from the doctors so all is well & good there. She is all settled in her new house now. Mom & Dad go over there a lot as they have been working in the yard & edge of woods. I still don't get to go there with them because Rosie, the Pitbull, doesn't like me. :-(
It got really cold here early so we didn't get to do much camping this fall. We did go in Oct. but it rained most of the day one day so that wasn't much fun. Maybe next yr will be a better yr for camping & trail riding.
Last Sun. I got to go to the Rural King store. Wow! I LOVE to go there with Mom & Dad. There were all kinds of dogs there. For the most part I wasn't interested in the other dogs as I was shopping with Mom. But I did meet a really cool labadoodle dog. She was nice & only about a yr old. Boy! She had some funky hair going on though. AND Mom says my hair gets a bit wild looking when I am in full coat! Nothing like that!
My Aunt Nila sent me a new ball. I am crazy about balls. Aunt Nila also gave me a new socker ball. It's big & pretty cool. I love to get new balls but I am not very good about sharing them with Wren. Besides she isn't a ball-dog. She doesn't even know what to do with a ball!
I don't know if we have any fun plans for this weekend. The weatherman says rain for the next few days. Uck! I hate it when it rains!
Happy Halloween to all my doggie pals........Boo......Shelby

It's been awhile since Mom has had the time to sit down & update my diary. A lot has been happening around our place the past month or so. Grandma & Aunt Nila had planned a visit last of Aug. Well, Grandma got here but the day Aunt Nila & her dog, Rosie, were to arrive, Mom got a call that Aunt Nila had collapsed at work & was in the hospital in Louisville, KY. So next day, Mom, Dad, & Grandma made a flying trip to KY to see what had happened. Louisville, KY is only about 2 1/2 hrs so they got there very early. When they got Aunt Nila out of the hospital, Mom drove Nila's car back with her dog Rosie to our house. Dad & Grandma drove our car back. Now Rosie is a good dog & her & Wren play together great, but me.....not so much. Rosie doesn't like me & honestly I am a bit afraid of her. PLUS, I bark when I see her playing with Wren. Wren is my sister & I worry that another dog might hurt her. Dad calls me the "fun-police". He says I don't like Wren to have fun with any other doggies but me. I guess that is why they call me the "bossie Aussie". Mom & Aunt Nila do not let me & Rosie get together at all except when walking on lead. I have to stay in the kennel or the barn while they are visiting. But I really don't mind at all. I LOVE the kennel as I can watch the horses all day & it's nice & cool. AND of course, I am the queen of the barn so I like hanging out there as well. I sleep on the settee & it is quite comfortable.
I guess my Aunt's condition may be quite serious so her & Mom have found a house close to us. They are moving here Oct 1st. Mom & Dad have been at the house working & getting everything ready for Nila & her husband--(who drives a big truck & is gone all week). Aunt Nila has been here quite a bit too, going back & forth from here to Louisville. I haven't gotten to see much of her because of us dogs not getting along too well. I haven't seen much of Mom either. Mom comes & sits with me as I get to missing her really bad. Dad will get Mom & tell her when I am really sad so she comes & sits & plays with me. I know Mom is very busy with all of it but after all she is my Mom too! Grandma is closing her house in FL & she is coming up for a long stay Oct 1st too. She is going to help my Auntie, staying there during the week & our house on the weekends. Grandma likes me & thinks I am the smartest dog because I do all my little tricks for her. Grandma gets annoyed with Wren because Wren snoops thru her suitcases. I never do that! It is not nice to snoop but Wren is just a nosey girl.
Us dogs do not get to go over to the house yet. Auntie Nila has treated the yard for fleas & different bugs. The people there before had dogs. Mom said there was a very nice kennel that was in the shade & was partially covered. Now Mom & Aunti surely don't think Rosie will ever be in that kennel because that just won't ever happen! Rosie is strictly a city girl---she doesn't know about horses & weird noises from the country & the woods. Mom said there is a woods all around this house so Rosie will see lots of squirrels. Hmmmm.....I am thinking I need to go over there because I like to chase squirrels up the trees! But since me & Rosie aren't very good friends I probably won't get to go.
We haven't gotten to go camping for over a month. But then it has been really hot here. Mom said we won't be going camping until we get Aunt Nila all settled in. Then once all the tests are back & it is decided what type of treatment then we can think about camping. That's ok because Mom has always stressed to us that family is first...we can have fun later.
Well, bark at you all later..........when Mom has time to update my diary. Shelby
P.S. Good luck to my doggie pal, Chloe, on her upcoming hip surgery. I know you will have the best care & do just great! Echo will keep things 'lined-out' while you recover.

Ok, I know it has been quite awhile since Mom posted anything in my diary. Let's see what have I been up to since her last post which was way back in May, Well my dog cousin, Rosie the Pitbull, came to visit for a few days. I really didn't see much of her though. I don't think Rosie likes me very well & I am a little bit afraid so Mom & Aunt Nila decided it best to keep us apart. Roise mostly hangs with Wren, the Weim. I had to spent a lot of time in the kennel, but I don't really mind that too much. It's shady & I like watching out over the pasture at the horses. Rosie liked to hang out in the barn with Wren. Rosie thought she was a real guard dog watching over the horses. That didn't make me too happy cause I am the "head herder" at our house. PLUS, I am the queen of the barn so my nose was a bit out of joint during cousin Rosie's stay.
I have had a couple of hair cuts so far this summer. Mom keeps me really short in the summer. Surprisingly, we have done some camping in June-July, which is usually too hot & humid for Mom & Dad to ride horses & camp. We have been going to a different campground because the trails at our favorite place have been too muddy to ride. I don't like the other campground though. Neither does Wren. The lady there doesn't particularly like dogs even tho she has Aussies, she yells at other Aussies. She even hit Wren on the head once, Mom & Dad were really mad about that. They wouldn't go there for several yrs after that. Mom said she is a mean, nasty person with no people skills. She has no dog skills either because me & Wren don't like her! Mom's new Arabian horse is doing great & she really likes him. (rolling eyes in head) He never does much wrong in his stall so I don't get much of a chance to bark at him. But her other horse makes up for it. He is forever rubbing or making noises in the stall which requires me to bark & jump on the stall wall. For which Dad in turn yells at me.
Since Mom is so far behind with my diary, I am sure some stuff has happened that she has forgotten to write about. I will keep on her to stay more current with my diary.
Thank you to all my doggie pals for the birthday wishes. Yep, I am now 6 yrs old! Mom thinks she can tell I am maturing & slowing down a bit. I seem to "chill out" more while at the campground not having to be busy every single moment & actually 'chill' more at home as well. Which Dad is very happy about. Dad was forever telling me to 'light' somewhere & stay put for 5 mins. :-)
Bark at you all later..............Shelby
