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!

Back at Last!

So I felt like the worst mini aussie mommy ever because I misplaced my camera charger and of course, my camera died....
I missed so many good pics! =(
Thank goodness Ace & I found it yesterday while visiting Ace's *Great* Grandparents (Daddys grandparents)
I wasted no time charging it right up and snapping a few while on our after dinner walk!

So in the almost 2 weeks since our last post..has it been that long? maybe not...
Ace has been on all sorts of adventures!
He went to his first vet visit since he has been home with us!
(He saw a vet numerous times when he was with this puppy family)
He weighed 10 big pounds at 11 weeks!
As of Yesterday, he is 12 weeks old!!!!! AH! I am sure he weighs around 11.5 pounds now...
The vet was very impressed with him and gave him a snack when he didn't even flinch when he got his shot! Ace's Daddy & I were both green & shaky while we watched him get his shots!
(I actually looked away!)

Another big first for Ace-Chan...
Public Transit!
Yesterday, I needed to travel across the city to take care of some family business, so I decided to bring Ace with me! I figured the earlier he is introduced to travel, the better!
So, at around 10:15 am I packed up my purse with water and a few toys, put Ace's new orange collar on him and set off for the street car!
We rode (Ace in my lap) the street car 30 minutes, then connected with the subway for another 35 minutes, and then hopped a bus for 10 minutes!
Needless to say, he was an ANGEL! He sat patiently in my lap and we even enjoyed some snuggly moments when he put his head on my chest and would close his eyes!
(That NEVER happens!)
He is usually WAY too rambuncious!
Ace didn't cry, or whine, he was so well behaved, we had all sorts of people come up to say what a great boy they thought he was!

When we got to our destination, Ace played in the big yard on his *giant* super long leash!
He even accidently crushed a budding tulip! WOOPS!
We will have MANY more pics coming up!

We introduced Ace to the *beach* aka Lake Ontario, and he LOVES to jump on the rocks with his daddy! He even waded in the freezing water up to his knees!
With the beautiful weather this weekend, I will be taking lots of pics!

We are traveling via Street Car again today to Pawsway! We are going to introduce Ace-Chan to agility!


  1. It's so cool that dogs are not banned from public transportation. And of course he was a perfect gentleman!


  2. Ah! Well the times they are allowed on are restricted! They are only allowed during *off peak* times, I am going to test that today I feel like as long as I am carrying him, he is fine...
    I don't like to put him down yet on the, because I fear he might get stepped on!

  3. Sounds like Ace-Chan is an ace traveler! I'm so happy you found your camera charger. I'm lost without a working camera so I can relate to your frustrations.

  4. Ah & the worst, is that i have had it for a few years now, so finding a replacement charger is a task in itself...I looked online and couldn't find one anywhere! So happy I didn't have to go get a new camera! Whew!

  5. What a LUCKY boy! He's been so well sociailized, and that's great that he's already impressing people at such a young age! You see, even the naughtiest dogs are such sweet angels!

  6. Wow Ace, you're such a traveler! But make sure you leave plenty of time for naps and noms!!

    Wags! ~ Anna
