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!

Hope all my doggie pals had a great Memorial Day weekend. We stayed at home & did yard work all 3 days. A storm that went thru on Friday night blew down a big pear tree in our yard so I helped Mom & Dad clean that up. Well, maybe I didn't help that much but rode on the Ranger when Dad took the limbs to the back field to burn later.
Wow! I got in really big trouble last night. We were all out in the barn. Mom & Dad were taking a little break from grooming the horses & us dogs were just hanging out with them. The barn cat, Albert, came in thru the kitty door & as he started to go up the stairs to the loft for his supper, I nailed him. Yep, I was spitting out a bunch of kitty fur. But before I knew what was happening, Mom was up & she swatted me good on the behind, yelled at me & put me in time-out for 5 mins. I have never seen Mom that mad at me. She surely must have had a bad day at work to get that mad at me for pulling a little hair out of the cat. Geeze! I was just teasing him. I don't think Mom has EVER smacked me before so I was a bit surprised. When I got out of time-out I tried & tried to make up with Mom. I made all kinds of noises & even sobbed a bit but Mom wouldn't even look at me. She was REALLY mad. That darn cat gets me in way too much trouble. I think when he scurries upstairs that means I should chase him. It's just a game, but Mom doesn't think that way. I sure hope she is in a better mood tonight.

First of all, I want to say "thank you" to my doggie pals, Echo, Redford & family, Coco & family, Angel & Dixie for the gifts of flowers! My doggie pals are the best & all so sweet. Mom says it's the "power of the paw" & people that don't know it are sure missing out.
We finally got to go camping last weekend. Mom & Dad were so busy all week making sure everything was loaded in the camper since it was the first trip of the season. The night before we dogs are very anxious as we know we will be leaving in the morning. Mom & Dad gave the horses baths & groomed on them it seemed like forever. I got in trouble several times because every time Mom put her brush tote down I would get in it. Sometimes Mom puts treats in it for her horse when she is all done grooming. I like those horse treats too & been known to steal them out of the tote. Then when Mom goes to give her horse a treat there are none. :-) Sorry Mom but I like peppermint too!
We went to a different campground this weekend. Mom said I had been there when I was a puppy but I sure didn't remember it. Needless to say, it was all very strange to us. This place had barns with stalls for the horses so the horses didn't have to stand tied to the hitching rails. Mom put my cable-tie in one of the empty stalls which was cool because I could bury my bone in the sawdust. I bet I buried, then dug it back up & reburied it a dozen times. I wanted to make sure NO ONE could find my bone.
But when people who hadn't seen Mom & Dad in a few yrs stopped by, me & Wren would bark a lot. We got in trouble for barking, but couldn't seem to help it. Dad was really mad at us & yelling all the time. We would stop barking as soon as we saw the people were nice. Dad said we sounded like a dog kennel. I think we got on his nerves big time. :-(
Mom took her new Arabian horse & said he did great on the trails. She baby-talked him a lot & told him he was such a good boy! (rolling eyes in head) "Whatever"! She didn't give me much attention at all. I did hang out with Mom & Dad under the camper awning in the evening.
As usual, we all came home pooped & it was early to bed Sun. night!
Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day & stay safe......Shelby
P.S. I heard I might be getting another hair cut this weekend. Really?? Seems like I was just there. Dad said I was looking like one of those old stuffed animals at the Fairs that no one picks--all fuzzed out. :-(

Will Spring ever get here for good? I am tired of all this rain, not to mention I am terrified of thunderstorms. :-( I am ready to go camping & see all my doggie pals at the horsecamp. And I am anxious to see some of Mom's friends. I want to show them my new "patty-cake" trick. I am sure it will get me some praise & treats! (giggle)
Not much news to report around here as I haven't been anywhere! I did go for a ride with Mom & Dad on the Ranger Sat. afternoon between rain showers. Dad had the sprayer tank in the back of the Ranger so I was the only doggie that got to go since I ride in the front seat. I was good & didn't get all excited since we didn't see any squirrels.
Well, me & Mom are going to go read some of my doggie pals diaries since I haven't got much to report.
Everyone have a good week.......don't forget Mother's Day!
