Arrival Story:
Our baby girl Jessie was starting to get older and not as active, didn't want to go for car rides or anything so we started looking for another dog to do things with and let Jess retire to the couch. We were looking for a Blue heeler, nice size and active and very smart. We started looking in our local dog pounds and the SPCA and after a few weeks the SPCA in Victoria called and told us that they had Kelpie x puppies (10 of them) but they were going fast so If we wanted to see them we had better hurry. Obviously we did hurry because Ryder is here with us today. We are so lucky to have him he is loving, smart, sweet and very protective, you just couldn't ask for a better dog.

We got Ryder from the Victoria SPCA in June of 2001 when he was just 9wks old, he had come originally from Parksville B.C. but was transferred down as they had no room there. He had 9 littermates all together and all the pups went that same day to their forever homes (well hopefully). Shortly after we got Ryder we found that he had demodex mange so had to have treatment for that and then the following summer we found out he had seasonal flank alopecia so he has some issues with baldness. He has recovered of course from the mange but the alopecia can reoccur at any time but hasn't yet so far. I add omega 3 and 6 fatty acids to his diet and it seems to help with his coat and as you can see from his pictures he is doing just fine and is as handsome as ever.

Daddy had to take a truck to his human boy so I got to go for the ride!
It was a long trip and we had to stay overnight in Golden BC in the truck because Daddy didn't want to get a hotel room, something about saving money! I don't know what this money stuff is but I wish he didn't have to save it becuase I was freezing! I really really missed my bed in my nice warm house!

We got to the boys house though and I got to warm up and drink water and eat and sleep in a nice warm bed so it was all good! I even got to see that scooby-cat again, don't see him much now that he moved from our house to the boys place!

We didn't stay long just a couple of nights and now we are back home, I was so happy to get home and sleep in my own bed and see mommy and even Niya and Noid. I like it when things are normal!

Mmmmm, mommy went out today and took that little brat Noid with her and of course he got spoilt and got new clothes, doggles a sweatshirt and a hat, rotton dog! Ah anyways I guess it doesn't matter too much, I don't like clothes so he can have them but at least mommy did think of me and brought home some moose bones!!!! Mmmmmm, slobber drool! I guess she and her friend stopped off at someones house on the way back from the petstore and they had just went hunting and got a moose and gave mommy and her friend a few bones! Lucky Lucky me is all I have to say!!!

Got to go, got to chew on a moose now!!
