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!

Graduation Day!


okay, so it was actually on Tuesday but I hadn't uploaded the pictures from my phone!
Yea I know, I forgot the camera, but luckily the iphone did the trick somewhat...the picture of our teacher handing Ace the diploma was a little blurred but the other came out pretty good I think!

PS...Ace was the only pup who actually grabbed the diploma himself! hahahaha everyone was laughing!

Handsome little guy! I don't mean to brag but he sure did come a long way from being the loud constant barker from our first class to being the only guy who would actually stay in his *Down Stay* for the alotted time! 
I remember our first class when he just WOULDN'T stop barking! I was so embarrassed because I was getting weird looks from other people!
I feel so accomplished and even though we won't probably continue with the higher level classes as of now, I am going to stick with doing the training myself! There are all sorts of cool tricks I want to teach him!
He sure is turning out to be a great dog!
We are very proud :)

ALSO I wanted to thank everyone for the birthday wishes! It was a great birthday :)


  1. Congratulations Ace!!! :) Hoping to get Suka enrolled in classes that start next week. Guess I better hurry up :) Good Job! :)

  2. I started dog obedience with my Australian Shepherd and just hoped that she'd learn her name and come sometimes when I called her. She ended up winning the State Fair Beginner Obedience Class. She loved the work and going to class. We spent a lot of happy hours together doing obedience.

  3. We are all very proud of you, buddy! What a great job.

    I remember when Simba was in Puppy Class. He was so shy he litterally went to a corner of the training room and cryed and cryed. By the end of the Puppy Class, Intermediate, and Advanced class combo he is now Mr. Social! They all give us something to be proud of!

  4. Yay for Ace! Your Brilliant, we always knew that right little mate!
