Well I know this is long over due, but I have been so busy lately working from 6 to as much as 10 hours a week more than usual, and of course with the new addition.. life has been pretty crazy. Well, I posted a thread a while ago, prob about 2 months ago, announcing that my parents finally said I could get a dog. So, over the past several weeks Iíve been keeping a close watch on the available dogs on petfinder, at the humane society I volunteer at, and more recently, at australian shepherd rescue.

Finally, I found the dog Id been looking for. I knew from the moment I saw him that he was the one, but of course my parents had hoped for a small dog, and they werent keen on an aussie; they assumed it would be too hyper, always running around the house, etc. So I had a long discussion with them, they agreed to meet the dog, and well, long story short, we now have a dog! I adopted him on January 27th. His name was originally Tyler, but heís now called Brock. Heís a big boy- 60lbs, about a year old, he was found as a stray, brought into a shelter, and then transferred to a foster home through aussie rescue and placement helpline (http://www.aussierescuenw.org/). He is simply marvelous. I am continually amazed by how well behaved he is. I am just waiting for something to go terribly wrong because things are going so well! haha He adores people and other dogs, loves to play, is very calm in the house, wonderful with the cats (THANKFULLY)- just perfect! So anyhoo, here are a few photos: :)

We enjoyed meeting Brock last weekend at marymore, he is a very well behaved boy, everyone who was there commented on that. Lucee could take a few lessons in behavior from him:D .....tom

Congrats on adopting Brock. He is extra special because you adopted him on my birthday ;) :p .

Are his eyes green or was that something the camera did? Either way he is one good looking pup!

hehe yep! :) and youre right it was the seattle meeting.

"Congrats on adopting Brock. He is extra special because you adopted him on my birthday.

really? haha cool! well, Happy belated birthday! :D and yeah his eyes really are that greeny yellow. they are kind of a pale yellow with a gray/green outline. and his left eye has a dark spot on it! toward the bottom. its hard to tell in these pics but if you look at them full size in the album you can prob see it. :)

"Hope you know that now we'll all be expecting *ahem* regular updates."

hehe yeah. things are getting more normal now and Im having a more consistant schedule so hopefully I can get back into the PT groove. ;)

"What a doll he is! I think bigger dogs are great and your parents will be very happy."

I agree, I love big dogs! :D my parents do like him a lot. they comment all the time now on how good he is. :) (yay!)
