Jimmer (the dog)

Meet Jimmer, the newest member of our family.

He is a miniature Australian Shepherd. This breed is known for being very smart, very active and very cool-looking. (Note the blue-green eyes and speckled coat.) The breeder also said that they don't smell as much as other dogs, are very good with children, can leap buildings in a single bound, kill peeping Toms with gamma rays that shoot out of their eyes. (In other words, she is a sales woman first, breeder second.)

But it is a fact that Australian Shephards are natural "herders."
I am hoping this comes in handy when it is time for everyone to get in the van for church.
It has been a fun weekend! I let you know when I want to give him back.

  5. My kids have been begging me for some type of animal for years. I keep pushing it off. You are so brave.
