Day 23: Cuteness On The Move

"The "Checkerboard Aussies" Fabulous Four are on the "move".  All that cuteness? really check out Semah & Bindi on the sidelines watching Sprite beat up her sister, Lunette.  Never mind double the trouble, it is quadtriple now they are on the "move".  Never be "fooled" by the photos with all those looks of innocence, as there is always more behind the scenes."

Now onto more news of the "week".  

"Missy Mercedes & Buddy hopefully have made a good "match" with promise of an upcoming first time litter for both them on or about the 28th of April, 2013.  It will be pretty exciting in another month's time, with our paws crossed it naturally "took"."

Springtime is getting to be more exciting around here all the time.  Speaking of which, has anyone seen Spring yet????

A Family Collage

"Our Forever Mama put together a Family Collage of Us Four today."

"Of course Lexus is not looking toward the unsettled sky in the East, her mind is on those squirrels residing in the wood shed."

"The Fabulous Four are on their way on being mobile, however wobbly and in between many many naps."

Day 20: Fabulous Four

 "This morning outside our door."

"Alright, alright, you caught us sleeping again, but don't you know we are growing "Checkerboard Aussies", and need our sleep."

"This would be our Dad, Bandit, who is always full of smiles.  Once we get more mobile he won't be smiling as much any more, we can bet our "bottom paw" on that one, cause we will be running circles around him by then."

Day 17: Fabulous Four 2013

"The Fabulous Four are at least 6 x the size from when they were born.  With all the good nourishment and sleep they are getting who would be surprised at their growth."

"From top left to bottom right:  Black Tri Male, "Semah"; Red Tri Female, "Sprite"; Red Merle Female, "Lunette"; Blue Merle Female, "Bindi"."

"Always lots of sisterly love going on between Bindi (the heavy weight) and Lunette, who never seems to mind."

"We just received photos of the new accessories Lunette's Forever Home Mama, Jamilyn, had purchased for her.  Lunette is going to be quite the "Checkerboard Aussie" Diva we are thinking."

"Of course, we all love our Mamas, don't we?"

2011 "Buddy" Testimonial

We were really happy today to receive a Testimonial from another "Checkerboard Aussie" Forever Home.  

Julie and Mark, along with their 7 year old son, Jack, came out in 2011 to see our last "One & Only" puppy from our very first litter, The "Magnificent Seven".  They immediately fell in love with him.  

This is the note I received from Julie today:

This is our Checkerboard Aussie, "Buddy" who has been part of our family since 2011. From the moment we brought Buddy home from Cindy and Rob's, he and our son Jack have been inseparable. It is such a great thing for Mark and I to watch these two grow up together. We love our Checkerboard Aussie!

That is what we LOVE to hear, all about a Checkerboard Aussie and his Boy !  Thank you, Julie.

"This is a note Jack wrote to us last month.  The photo is of "Buddy" in 2011, at about 6 weeks old."

"These are photos which had been taken under today's date and sent to me by Julie of Buddy & his boy, Jack.  Wow they are having a "blast" together by the looks of these photos.  That is one handsome boy Buddy is, along with his cute boy, Jack."

Thanks Julie, Mark and Jack for giving Buddy such an "awesome" Forever Home and keeping in touch with us, as we LOVE to hear from you and see new photos all the time.

Sincerely, The "Checkerboard Aussies", Bandit & Lexus.

Two X Two = Fabulous Four

Yes, Two x Two = Fabulous Four "Checkerboard Aussie" with a whole bunch of cuteness.  Today they are two weeks old.  Today their eyes began to open.  Today they were really squiggly when being held.  Today they are beginning a whole new stage of their lives ....

"Bindi is the largest and plumpest.  This shows she must be a wee bit on the greedy side when it comes to meal times, would you think?"

"Lunette on the other hand is still working on more Beauty sleep so she can have "Diva" status when she grows up a wee bit more."

"This tiny little sweetheart is Sprite.  She is just a speck of cuteness all in herself."

"Semah is the only boy, can you tell ????  Really he appears to be not only sleepy, but bored with the whole thing !  Typical do you not agree."

Seven Days Old

We are totally amazed here, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard, that our Fabulous Four litter from our amazing "Checkerboard Aussies'" Bandit & Lexus have not only found their Forever Homes at a week old, but that each have also received an amazing name ....

"Each Fabulous Four "Checkerboard Aussie" Puppy has their very own unique name.  How special is that?  Now I don't have to call them "puppy, puppy, puppy, puppy" in the next 7 weeks of life here with Mama and Pop."

Special thanks to Jamilyn, Mike, Linda, Mackenzie & Liam, and Sara & Garret for giving each of their Forever Puppy their unique name.  I am certain they will make you proud (when they grow into be to be that Forever Dog, once the terrible twos has been all sorted out).

"Checkerboard Aussies" are FOREVER Dogs."

Another Checkerboard Aussie Testimonial

"Checkerboard Aussie" Blue Merle Female 2012, "Spectacular Six" Litter."

"She waited and waited and waited until her new Forever Home parents arrived after a 5 hour plus drive to come get her.  It was a pretty happy moment for all three this day."

"This is Riff Raff now, coming up to One Year Old on the 13th of April, 2013.  Riff Raff pictured with her Doberman friend, Pinch."

Following the photos, just today we also received a very nice note from Riff Raff's owner, Shar, as follows:

We are so grateful we got our Aussie pup from Checkerboard Aussies.  Our Aussie is silly, funny, fearless, our Dobermans best friend and a real Mama's girl.

Having adopted two dogs before our Aussie, the support we received from Cindy after we brought our girl home was not really expected. Cindy and Rob truly care about their dogs.  Don't be surprised to get emails or even a phone call to see how you and your pup are doing.  Riff Raff is now ten months old and Cindy is just as interested in her well being today as she was when we got her. 

If you are lucky enough to get a Checkerboard Aussie, it doesn't matter where you live... IT'S WORTH THE DRIVE TO WIARTON.

Thanks Shar !  Really truly it is wonderful that we are able to keep in touch with most of the wonderful Forever Homes our "Checkerboard Aussies" have found for themselves.

This IS How TO Be a GREAT Mama

Life lessons on getting the Family Dinner going ...

"Ah there they are the little family of the Fabulous Four.  Mama Lexus gets in position, then the pulling pulling pulling, and the nudging nudging nudging begins."

"Just a wee more pulling and nudging.  There let the Dinner Bell cease ringing."

"Amazing how loud four little ones can be when they have only entered into the third day in this World."

"Should they grow up and eat all their veggies like their Daddy, they will be big and strong just like I am."

They Are HERE !

 "My favourite Kid, Aiden, was here visiting Grandma & Papa this weekend, so I got to "hang out" with him."

"We both LOVE us some snow."

"Just before my boy left back for home, my Lexus and I had our own family born beginning around 2:00 pm on the 3rd of February, 2013.  Four healthy "Checkerboard Aussie" babies to make us Proud !"

"Checkerboard Aussie" 2011 Testimonial

March 21st, 2011 our very first "Checkerboard Aussie" litter was born to Bandit and Lexus..  It was a pretty exciting day around here that was a certainty.

We are very proud to hear from one of our "Spectacular Six" Checkerboard Aussies Forever Homes.

"Scout in 2011 with recent photos of her to the right.  What a beauty Scout has turned out to be."

"I could not have been more pleased then have had one our pups placed in Jane & Jed's home, as you can see how happy all who are concerned are?"

A couple of notes I had also received along with the photos of Scout:

”Scout has been the best possible canine addition we could ever make to our family! Intelligent, easily trained, obedient , agile and as loyal as the best friend you ever had! We love her dearly and recommend the breed to anyone looking to have an active and engaging pet.”

“We highly recommend Checkerboard Aussies…..Scout is the living proof. Cindy & Rob’s care and attention have helped us all the way in raising her up to be the healthy, active dog she is today….Good luck with the litter in 2013. ” Jed & Jane Phillips, Owen Sound , On

Thanks Jed & Jane for doing such a fantastic job on raising Scout, and also for keeping in touch with us.  We look forward to receiving more photos in Scout's future.
