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!

Nom Nom Nom!

So we didn't make it out to the agility play @ pawsway yesterday =(
Right as I was packing up Ace's essentials, we got a text from daddy that said he got invited to play in a big work poker game right after work (the time of the agility course)! 
Ace & I were bummed out at first, but daddy told us that there was nice prize money if you won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place!
Daddy reassured us that his University Poker days would get him through, so Ace & I agreed =)
Instead, Ace & I took a long walk on the boardwalk along Lake Ontario and Ace met all sorts of other pups! 
(I really must remember my camera when we take walks...)
Ace even met a 3 month old Visla (who I cannot remember his name right now) =(
The Visla pup was about 16 pounds his mommy told us, and oh boy was he rambuncious and strong!
I let Ace meet him and we let them play off leash in an enclosed area.
Ace is usually very receptive to playing with other dogs, even those much bigger, but this visla pup was tough! He kept trying to push Ace around and even tried biting his fur! After about 10 minutes Ace was not happy....he ran to me and cried to tell me he wanted to go...Oh, well we tried...
He met a VERY sweet doberman puppy the other day who was 2X his size, and they loved each other, I suppose they can't all be winners =)

After that, Ace I came home and relaxed, I shared my carrot sticks with him while we watched a movie!
I have recently been giving Ace apple in the afternoon & carrot sticks at night! He LOVES them! I also noticed his *business* doesn't smell as much when he eats fruits and vegetables! His teeth also look very nice!
(Mouth full of carrots)
*Notice the giant cow lick on his back, his hair is growing in wild!*
(Nom Nom Nom hehe )

(Here is Ace with his FAVORITE toy, it is an orange rubbery monkey that squeaks at the slightest touch, he sleeps with it every night in his crate, and carries around the house all day!)
Ace's daddy & I have gotten used to hearing monkey squeaks during the night as he rolls around in his crate haha
It is also VERY durable, and NO stuffing, so I find it to be a very safe toy!
Ace picked it out when I took him to the pet boutique down the street! I should have saved the tags to give you all a name, but it comes in different colors, and I think it is one of the cutest toys! You can probably just google, rubbery monkey toy haha
I believe it was only around 15$, which I thought was a lot for a toy he might shred to bits after a few hours, but it has lasted 2 weeks now & no holes! Whew!

After a long day of play and *shnicky shnacks* (that's what we call snacks here at our house haha)
Ace & I retreated to bed with no sign of daddy! 
Right after we fell to sleep, daddy came in all excited with news he won 3rd place at the work poker game! We were all very excited because he beat 27 other people! Very Impressive for someone who hasn't played in a few years haha =)
Ace danced around *even though it was past his bedtime* because he misses daddy like crazy all day!
Thankfully he calmed down pretty quick and settled into dream land!
What a nice day we had & Later today Ace might be meeting my pilates instructor's 5 year old Daschund pup Max! We are trying to set up a play date! Max is a puppy at heart, so hopefully they will get along!
*I will be sure to bring my camera!!*


  1. Apples and carrot sticks, yum! What good healthy snacks. Ace's orange monkey sure looks like a funky cool toy for him. It's good that Ace lets you know when he's had enough of somebody. I've noticed that Bandit does that, too, when he's at his 4 o'clock playtime.

  2. Wow! Ace seems to have a lot of playmates! What a lucky puppy!
    And vegetarian too? How adorable! That's great that he gets his daily portion of veg and fruit! BOL!!!!!
    Well done to daddy for his 3rd prize ;)

  3. His business, too funny :) Farley looooooves apples too!

  4. Hi Ace! What a cute puppy you are! I love carrots and apples too and my dad plays poker all the time (online). So we have lots in common!

  5. Hi Ya Ace,
    Boy, I recently had a bad time too. Mom took me to a get together at a dog wash/doggy daycare. They put me in with the big dogs but I wanted to play with the puppies! The big dogs were pushy and then two of them ganged up on me and hurt me. I cried and mom came and got them off me...I don't want to go back their again and mom agrees.

    Love your Monkey!

  6. Hiya Ace.
    Eva barks a lot too, and the instructor told us to just lightly smack her muzzle to stop her, with a firm NO. She does stop after that. Have fun in puppy class!
