Arrival Story:
One upon a time,around 2 years ago,there were 2 (human) sisters who were looking for a puppy.Both of the sisters had be owned by dogs before,and sister #1 even had a dog ,Ana, but they wanted an Old English Sheepdog to share.This is because sister #1 went to work all day during the week and sister #2 was a stay at home mum with 2 teenagers,so she could babysit the puppy and the working sister could take the puppy weekends.#2 had just lost her OES Tabatha and was very sad about that.So they started their search for a puppy and were surprised to find there were long waiting lists and it wasnt just a case of who has a puppy,we shall buy it.Because they wanted a female puppy in particular,this made the hunt even harder.They managed to find several lovely breeders who agreed to add their names to their waiting lists,but after missing out on 5 litters which didnt have enogh girl puppies for the sisters to get one,they began to give up the idea as it was too upsetting to keep missing out.It took a very long time and many family situations happened that interfered with the search and slowed things down.The stay at home sister decided she would instead search for a fully grown sheepdog that needed a new home and so she joined clubs and internet lists and forums and let animal shelters and OES rescue know there was a home available should a sheepdog need one.After a few months,still nothing.Then the working sister found a lady who owned two working sheepdogs who worked very hard on her farm.They are fit and healthy dogs and very good looking,so when the sisters found out these two lovely dogs were expecting a litter,they put their names down for a pup.They finally hit the jackpot,and on November 28th 2008,the puppies arrived into the world.Two male pups followed by 3 female pups.All very healthy and beautiful.So this is my story.I am Kismet,the pup who will be going to live with the stay at home sister and her two teenagers.The working sister sadly has to move far away for work and will only see me in the holidays once a year but she loves me too.The new owners teenage daughter has grown up with sheepdogs as I will be the seventh sheepdog this family has had.The mum got her first OES when she was a schoolgirl with a holiday job.She saved up all her wages and bought a puppy whom she named Angie.Angie was a lovely puppy and grew into a beautiful dog.Angie was taken to a dog show once but she was a little bit naughty and laid on her back with her legs in the air when the judge came to examine her so she didnt have a show career,instead,she was a family pet who loved to go to the beach,with her littermate Sasha sometimes,and she grew into a big happy dog.Her owner got married and had some human babies,and eventually Angie left them to go to the Rainbow Bridge.Then a rescue OES named Bo came to live with them,She had been in an accident and had a caved in thigh,maybe from a car?and she wasnt with the family many years before she too went to join Angie.The nest OES was a beautiful showdog named Amber.Amber wasnt quite as tall or as large as an OES ideally should be so her breeder sold her as an adult to the family,which had 4 boys by then.The boys loved Amber and she went to the park and beach and played with the boys in a happy jumpy manner.One day the father of the family took his wife on a magical mystery tour that ended at a dog breeders property and there the breeder handed over the wifes surprise 30th birthday present,an OES puppy named Christobel.So Amber became like a mother to Christobel and showed her how to behave and they ran together on the lovely white sands at the beach.Sometimes they even met other OES to talk and run with.Their lives were very exciting and happy and active.One of their friends was a male sheepdog named Ben. When they too went to the rainbow bridge,the family moved away from that beach to a beachside town in Qld called Noosa.There a fully grown ex showdog named Brodie lived with them for the remainder of his life,then the family moved again to a small fishing village situated on a peninsula.On one side,the water is very deep like a river,on the other side there are white sandy beaches and shallow water for a long way out and when the tide is out,there is miles of sand flats to run on. The family then adopted another OES named Tabatha.She got to run on the sand and swim in the watre,especially the Christmas high tide,when the water was deep enough to swim properly.So life went on until tabatha too left us. .I am Kismet and after I grow strong and healthy on my mothers milk,and become old enough to leave my parents and littermates,I will go to live in the cottage in the village and be friends with Summer,the familys Labradoodle who is one year old.We shall be great mates and have lots of fun together.

Bio:
Hi everyone,what a week its been,of course,its been my very first week on earth so I have nothing to compare to yet.I have been having a few bottle feeds to help out my mum who is busy trying to cope with us all but she is managing to feed us all herself now so the humans are leaving her to it.I have gained a little weight,okay,I admit it,I have doubled my birthweight,its all that high calorie milk my mum is making,whats a girl to do?I am crawling about a little but I wish my eyes would open so I can see who is who and whats what.Life has been pretty good so far.Our human owner is giving us cutesy names but luckilly they will be changed when we go to our furever homes.I hope I get a good name that I wont be embaressed to answer to when I get called in the park or I will just ignore it if its Fluffykins or Snowbunny,these humans have weird ideas what makes a good name.They should try the names they like out before they get us home,go to the park and yell it a few times,in a nice voice then in an impatient voice then in that "I am so going to hide your favourite toy when we get home young lady" voice.And that way they can see if they like our name,or if they feel like a nong yelling it.My humans once had a sheepie named Tabatha ,which on the surface seems like a good name,but her second name was Kat,so it was very amusing to people in the park to hear them yell"Tab.Tabby.Tabby Kat" and see a large hairy sheepdog run up to them,apparently a tabby cat is something else all together.Go figure.

Kismet has reached 6.7 kgs at 10 weeks.She was the biggest pup born in the litter but the other pups were more pushy and she gradually ended up the smallest by the times the pups were placed in their new homes.I think as she is the quiet,docile one she maybe didnt fight hard enough for her share ,or else she is just destined to be a small sheepdog.She looks amazed when she gets a whole dish of food to herself and shares food happily with her adopted sister mini labradoodle Summer so they get fed seperately as Summer would eat all day and never leave any for Kissy.
Kissy is a quiet well behaved totally NON psycho pup,unlike Summer who at 16 months is still a wild ,barky,jumpy,annoying ball of fur,though training is kicking in.SLOWLY.
Kissy loves to be inside in the air conditioning during this long hot Australian Summer.She is almost
housetrained,yay.
She eats puppy chow with a little meat added for taste,chicken,or tuna,and plain yoghurt.
She tends to "dig" in her waterbowl before drinking so splashes it everywhere then sits contentedly in the puddle.
Kissy has slept all night in her crate since we got her,never wakes or cries in the night.This is such a refreshing change as Summer did this for months and has never settled at night without a fight,she has to have her crate fully covered and still quietly "woofs" and snorts and moves into a different position a hundred times a night.We would let Summer sleep outside only she barks at everything that moves or thinks about moving and there are toads here at night,poisonous,but apparently appealing to dogs.
They used to play together well and just do non aggressive play fights but Summer has raised it up a few notches and is leaving bite marks on Kissy so now they are seperated and have their own yards and Kissy is mainly inside and Summer mainly outside,during the day.Kissy misses playing with Summer but Summer needs to learn to stop biting her and stop being so rough.Siblings!
