Just a Short Update on Darby and Duelly Our Queensland Heelers
They are Expecting!
I have the details and date on my other page and there's
tab now just above and that's a link to our sweet dogs.
|Darby Can't Quit Being A Mom For All The Baby Animals-One day Old|
Update: Laney is pregnant too and her pups due date is June 8th!
|Darby's Wild Child!|
Laney is our middle daughter's dog and she hangs-out with her mom and her best friend and now mate, Duelly. Laney's sire is from Piru and is named Turbo. I have him somewhere on my Queensland Heeler site. She's a lot smaller than Darby and a sweetie-pie.
I found these very cute magnets and art prints on a great dog site.

We haven't had a real "Ankle Biter" since Freckles and he was old in 1994. He was herding our neighbor and broke his skin on his ankle. Our neighbor who was not a relative; went to the ER and our dog was quarantined by Animal Control. We would have been in huge trouble if he hadn't had his rabies or license from our city. Whew!
We have learned that we need to train our dogs early-on that the biting behavior is not OKAY. We see all three dogs herd our grandchildren inside and outside the house and we watch carefully to make sure biting doesn't happen.
I'm not good with the dogs even nipping at our sheep pasterns. The goats too, but makes it more fun for Heelers because the goats turn around and fight-back. Negative reinforcement. Didn't work for the cattle because they just about knocked there heads-off every time, no matter if they duck, run, or scoot-back as fast a a blur. The cattle's perspective and experience know just where to kick. All survived scalpings. I love these dogs.
