Shetland sheep have changed my life and touched my heart. They have brought me joy, adventure and serenity. Follow along as I live each day influenced by memories of my mighty flock of mini sheep ~ aided and abetted by "Bellamica", the English Shepherd,"Sable", my livestock guardian dog and "Hero" the rescue dog that stole my heart! You'll also meet many of the homeless dogs that I rescue and rehome as part of Bluff Country Canine Rescue.

Here she comes! Racing her way into your heart (mine, anyway!). My Bellamica is growing into such a beautiful, spirited pup and has totally taken over the household. Her sense of joy and exuberance are contagious and she is THE most loving animal I have ever known. Yet, she manages to maintain her "dignity" and not be a grovely, "pet me please" kind of dog. She is self-confident and very intelligent. I would definitely recommend that anyone considering getting a working farm dog consider an English Shepherd. What a phenomenal breed! I can't honestly say that she's any help with the sheep yet. Mostly, she just sits and watches me. There's plenty of time for that later. In the meantime, I'm just happy to have my beautiful Bellamica as part of my "family"... DREAM says.... ..."I'd be real happy too ~ If you'd teach her to CLEAN THE BARN!!"
