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 from NYC with Tons of Mini Aussie Fun!!

Hey all of our blogger friends!
I did get back from my trip to NYC on Sunday but have been Uber lame about posting!! 

After a wonderful trip to see my family (wishing I could have brought Ace along), daddy picked me up from the airport and I went into the back yard to wait for Ace. Daddy opened the door to let Ace out for his potty break and I thought he was going to have a heart attack! It was the sweetest thing I have ever seen, and it is always nice to know you were missed! He made all sorts of squeaky/crying noises and rolled all over the place wanting me to rub him haha. Needless to say, he was glued to my side the rest of Sunday to make sure I didn't disappear again! ha!
I must say, even after just ONE week, he grew! I was so surprised! 
We think he weighs around 16 pounds now =)
While I was gone, he lost his FIRST tooth!!....well we thought he did, until we did a thorough inspection and realized it actually broke....we think the endless hours of chewing on his cow kneecap bone did it!
It doesn't seem to bother him, so we will show it to the vet when we go back in a couple of days for his follow up shots. Because it was one of his baby Canine teeth, he now looks like a little hillbilly when he opens his mouth...ahhh

I have been wanting one of those little baby plastic pools for a while now, but the weather is just now getting perfect for it! It was a warm 81 degrees and sunny today so Daddy and I went over to Toys R Us to pick up a little pool!
Ace was totally shocked at first and like anything new, barked and growled at it, but then I think he started to enjoy it! We kept having to put him in, but he would stand there and then jump out and run like a maniac around the yard! I think his favourite part was that all the dirt he rolled in stuck to him...haha

Here are some wonderful...and VERY dirty shots of our *dirty merle* Mini Aussie Ace!
-Here is the new pool after a couple of uses haha-

-A Very dirty & wet Mini Aussie Ace with a giant stick he found-

-The flower bed he decided to dig up and make into a *nest*-

-YUMMY morsels!-

-His new hang out spot under a little tree in the backyard, He likes to eat the flowers off of it haha-

-"Ma, seriously, you need to try this is SOOOOOOOO good!"-

-Unable to decide which stick he wants while playing with his Uncle (Daddy's younger brother, who is back from law school for the summer)-

-Ace's new favourite spot on a giant rock in the back yard! He got a nice bath after this haha!-

We wonder how Ace will be this weekend, It is a Holiday here in Canada and there are a lot of fireworks all over the place (including our house)! We hope Ace will love them too!!!


  1. Welcome back! I just love Ace's little face in the second picture - almost like a teddy bear.

  2. Ace is just the cutest thing! He's grown so much since your last blog!! Being greeted by your dog like that is just the greatest feeling.

  3. Thanks!!! Aw I know!! It brought tears to my eyes! It was the first time away from him, and so it was really special!! I can't beleive how quickly he is growing up!!! Not only in Size but his behaviour as well!!
    He is becoming quite the gentleman!

  4. We all miss Ace here. It's really sweet to be welcomed by our own doggies when we're home. Whenever Rosie is home after every 3 months, Laura and Mika will give her a grand welcome home licks and whimpers but they will ignore her when they see the big bags are out which means Rosie will be away from home again. It seems they know everything and they accept everything because of their love to us.

  5. Hey Ace, your so darn cute! And yes, you are growing fast. Hope your mommy is enjoying every minute of your puppiness! Life through the eyes of a puppy is a precious thing : )
