My First Day With My Family

by Bindi Bauman
(Sterling, Va)



My new humans picked me up this morning. I took the front passenger seat. They needed to know from the start who is calling the shots.

We stopped for a picnic on the way to the house.

I have a lot of room for playing in my new house and yard and some new litter mates: a cat, a parrot, and two human boys. I don't think the cat likes me, but she will soon.

I got invited to the neighbors for dinner. They are nice people, too. My new family bought me my own bedroom with a nice bed and a lot of toys.

I miss you mom, but i think I will like it here. I'm tired, it's time for bed. Good night.

PS: My new human mom sends her thanks to Grandma Linda

Have a Great Time in Your New Home

Sounds like you are off to a wonderful start! And obviously comfortable enough to drift off to sleep. try to make nice to the cat and grow up to take care of your boys.

I miss you Bindi, but you can always visit Grandma Linda any time you want.

Hugs and Kisses,
Linda

What a treasure!

by Paula Bauman
(Sterling, Va)



Bindi is a wonderful addition to the household. She has made an easy transition into the family. Everyone is taken with her (with the exception of Karma, the cat). The parrot is already imitating her bark.

She loves being outdoors and is a people magnet. Neighbors who used to just wave and say hello as they passed by, stop to talk and play with her.

Bindi has already learned "sit", "down" and is doing pretty well on the leash. We still have to work on "come", especially when it means that she has to go back inside.

She loves a good game of fetch. She is very food motivated. We hope to get Bindi into a puppy obedience class this summer at a school that has been recommended by several people.

She is continuing on the raw diet and has a great appetite.

We have finally decided on a name for her registration papers. She will be "Yankee Girl's Got Southern Style". I had to get a tribute to my southern roots in there.

What an adorable little gal. Enjoy all the years you have with her. They will fly by too quick.

AWESOME
by: Yankee Shelties

What a great registration name! Love it!

She certainly is enjoying her new digs and you've done so much with her in such a little time. She looks great.

Happy to hear you are continuing with the raw diet. If you ever have questions let me know.

All the best,
Linda

My Blue Merle Color Headed White Sheltie

Juneau at 8 weeks old

Yankee's Snowcapped Juneau, or "Juneau" for short, is my wonderful sheltie boy that I was fortunate to get through Yankee Shelties when Linda and I worked together in Oregon. His registered name is due to his unusual coloration; and he reminds me of the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska.

Juneau is extremely healthy, smart, loyal, loving, and he is amazingly beautiful and different looking from most shelties. He is so striking that he captures the eye of everyone when we take him on hiking excursion or in town. But most of all he has captured our hearts and is a wondeful addition to our family!

Hi
I live in Illinois near st Louis I'm
Looking for a color headed white female. Any ideas?

Hi Sara,
As far as I know most show sheltie breeders don't typically try to produce color headed whites. It happens when you breed two white factored dogs together. For me, Hope didn't show the typical markings of a white factored dog when I bred her to Juneau's sire so it was quite the surprise.

Happy for Juneau and You!

I'm so glad it worked out for the both of you. He is such a special little boy. Enjoy many years of happiness together!

Hey Dad, I like this place.  Gimme a high five!!!
Sending e-mails

Our little boy Jetson has stolen our hearts and everyone who meets him! For such a tiny little guy, he is extremely fast! Guess I'll finally lose that weight after all trying to keep up with him!!!

Our little bundle of fur has brought us so much joy. He is quite the "techy" pup. He thinks my iPhone is a toy. I keep telling him it's an iPhone, not an iBone! He really likes the laptop and even sent Grandma Linda an e-mail to let her know everything is going great. He misses her and "Little Bit", the show pup hopeful he played with.

Jetson is off to a great start and it will only get better. Time to go, I gotta jet!!!

Bindi's vacation

by Paula Bauman
(Sterling, VA)



I just got back from my vacation in Louisiana. I was very well behaved in the car and never once got car sick.

My owner said that because I attracted so much attention at our rest stops that it took longer to get to Louisiana than they planned. I can't help it if I am gorgeous!

I met all the grandkids and played with a couple of big pit bulls (they are big wimps so I was safe).

I did not get a "fried shrimp po boy", though. Even on vacation, they kept me on my raw diet. They did treat me to a couple of boiled eggs for breakfast at the La Quinta and they let me have a little Blue Bell ice cream for dessert.

Can't wait to go back. That Blue Bell is good stuff.

Quite the Traveler!
by: Yankee Shelties

Sounds like you had a great time! Hmmm, "po boys"! Makes my mouth water.

I see from the photos how you and the grandbabies were buddies, even at naptime.

Glad you had a safe and fun trip. Keep us posted on all your antics!

Darwin has found a home!

First night at his new home

Jumping up is the easy part!
My favorite place to sleep!

Mr. Blue has a name!

I was struggling to come up with a name for him until I saw him play with his toys when he thought I wasn't looking... He put his paw on top of one of his little toys and picked it up! The little guy spreads his toes to grasp things between them to pick them up! I have never seen a dog do that before!

So... his name is Darwin!

Darwin is definitely a toy lover and is an incredibly happy and outgoing puppy!
