Flo JoPassed over the Rainbow Bridge—October 16, 2017
Flo Jo was one of our first dogs we bought in 2010. She was 14 years old when she passed and a veteran. She retired a few years ago and had adjusted nicely to being a couch potato. She worked like a true Rock Star. Being the oldest, she was definitely the matriarch of the bunch. She was the ultimate working dog and was named after Florence Griffith Joyner, the track and field star. In her day she was fast as the wind!!! Flo Jo survived a cancer bout in 2013 and even worked all through her chemo treatments. She was truly a Survivor. She was very social and our little Diva. She was truly a special dog and is missed every day.
KatiePassed over the Rainbow Bridge—May 20, 2019
Kate was also one of our first dogs we purchased in 2010. She was also 14 years old when she passed and was fully retired but still loved to go out with us for ride alongs and work when she wanted to. She was the biggest sweetie and cuddler and has never met anyone she did not like. She was a fantastic swimmer and loved to put her head under water. Her favorite past time was playing Frisbee and herding the sheep.
We acquired Faye in the fall of 2012. She is 11 years old and our little red headed girl. Faye is such a gentle and sweet dog but her drive is intense and she will not stop until her job is finished. She is a very strong swimmer and can swim for quite a while, sometimes just for fun as she loves to be in the water. Faye has slowed down a bit and is close to retiring but Faye works hard, plays hard and sleeps hard.
Bond – “James Bond”Deputy
We acquired Bond in 2013. Our big guy is an awesome dog and very chill and quiet just as his name infers. But when he turns on the work switch, he is one of the most intense dogs I have seen. He has only one speed and that is 90 miles an hour. He is very affectionate but definitely a Daddy’s boy. He is now the patriarch of the clan and has even earned house privileges.
Annie is 6 years old and we received her in April of 2015. She is an April Fools baby. She is so small that we call her our “Little Peanut”. She is a ball of energy and like Bond, fast as lightening. She is a fiend with the frisbee and will do it nonstop if we let her. She is very affectionate with people she knows and loves to be held. She is a curious girl that is always on the move.
Stormie came to us in January of 2016. She is 9 years old and a total sweetheart. She is very high energy and a driven dog that loves to herd, including the other dogs especially while they are playing frisbee. She is a tireless swimmer and will not leave the pond until every goose is out of there. She is so smart and very methodical in the water when swimming after the geese. She loves to be dried off after her swims and will automatically roll over on her back so you can towel dry her belly. We have enjoyed watching her learn to play with the other dogs. She is truly as close to a robot as we have when it comes to working. Awesome dog!
Dixie came to us in February of 2016. She is 5 years old this year. She is our little Dixie Dickens as she can get into her fair share of mischief by stealing things out of the truck or your bag etc… She also loves to chase frogs, little birds and anything in the water. She also loves putting her head under the water. She is so playful and loves to play frisbee with a passion (mostly keep away though). She is very affectionate and wants attention and loving as often as she can get it. She is an awesome stalker and is learning to love the water. She is just a sweetheart.
Pearl came to us in May of 2016. She is 10 years old. She is the most affectionate and loving dog I have every seen. She kisses everybody and constantly kisses all the other dogs as well. She is very obedient and just wants to please. She can also be a little sensitive. She is a swimming machine. She bounces around like Tigger and can be a big goofball at times. She twirls and whirls around when excited and has earned the nickname of Pearl Whirl.
We acquired Faith in 2016. She is 5 years old and a giant ball of energy. Her nickname is "tigger" for the way she is constantly bouncing around. Don't let that fool you, she turns all that energy into intense perseverance when she gets her eyes on geese. Nothing makes her happier than getting the job done.
We acquired Nick in 2016. Our big guy is an awesome dog with quite the personality. He is 2 years old and a lean mean goose chasing machine. Don't let his size fool you, he is always looking to make new friends, four-legged or two. This daddy's boy loves to work and be told he has done a good job.
Baby J, as she is also known, is our newest deputy. She is 4 years old and quite a powerhouse. She is a total sweetheart and quite the cuddlebug, when I can get her to stop moving for a minute. She is still all puppy at heart but turns on the intensity when it is work time. She loves to swim after the geese and when they are gone she loves to frolic in the water. She is a great listener and very loyal when she bonds with you. When she is not working, she loves to play with her tennis ball or play frisbee. Her best buddies are Dixie, Nick and Stormie and when they have free time they will wrestle together for hours.
