Ace or Ace-Chan (as we have nicknamed him) is a Miniature Australian Shepherd, Blue Merle, with one Blue & one Brownish/Grey Eye!
He was born on January 20th 2010 in Alliston, Ontario (Just about 1.5 hours North of Toronto).
He arrived at his Forever home to his new human mommy & daddy on March 10th, 2010!
Ace now lives with his mommy (me) in New York! Follow us as we start fresh and have adventures in New York!

Be our FUR-riend!

No pun intended :)
We spent our Saturday lounging around eating cookies & playing with Ace of COURSE! :)
The weather was so so (medium coat) weather :( 
We went out ( Ace in Arms ) to the cutest pet boutique near our house!
It's called Bark & Fitz. There is this sweet girl who works there and adores Ace so we wanted to bring him by for a visit & pick up a few snacks :)
Our Purchase...
I want to say it is about as big as my hand spread wide open. It is a great size because his mouth is too small to pick it up, he can only roll it.
We were looking for a "Herding" ball for our little guy because not only is the aussie breed stellar at herding, but our lil man has been trying to round up his pig ears and any other toy, not to mention my ankles! :( The only herding ball was about 2 times as big as Ace and we felt it a little ridiculous haha.
This ball is a hard yet flexible rubber (Very bouncy), and it has a little trap door to put treats in! Then as your pup plays with it the treats fall out the other end!! Brilliant! haha
Ace hasn't really caught on to the who roll it for the treat thing yet, but he loves to roll it around our living room already just for the fun of it!!
He played with it SO much that this was what happened....
This is Ace passed out on the lower level of our coffee table :D.
This is def one of the funniest things he does. We have a 2 level glass coffee table and he immediately took to the bottom level & loves to nap there! I have to wipe it down daily to clean the little footprints!
We need to break this habit soon, because once he weights 30 pounds that glass isn't going to be able to hold him!
He is just SO cute though!
If you're looking for a great toy to occupy your pooch, I highly recommend this one! With it being a puzzle, they actually have to work for it! Or if you have a small dog that likes to *try* to herd, this works GREAT also!
Ace rates this toy.....A+
