We got a sneak preview of the 2010 Dogs That Blog ACD Calendar yesterday! Let me just tell you that each one of these dogs has a future in show business, if they want.
Each of Stumpy's friends, Norwood, Gus, Callie and Louie (AKA Three Happy Heelers), Velcro, Charlie Daniels, Wyatt Twirp and Ruger and Neve, appear as though they have been in front of the camera all their lives.
You'd never guess that among these super models are dogs with special needs (deaf), dogs that were once afraid of their own shadow. Most of the participants are from rescues and shelters, with very rough beginnings. Still, with love and guidance, they made the leap to well socialized and reliable partners.
I must make mention of the fact that none of this would be possible if Norwood hadn't volunteered his assistant to do all the work. Please be sure to stop over at Norwood's and convince him to throw his assistant an extra bone or two!
Pooooor assistant, always following in Norwood's shadow. Oops!! that's her shadow! Anyways, if you know Norwood at a all, you know what a hard job it would be to keep up with him! Yup! that assistant could sure use an extra bone on her dinner plate tonight!
We're hoping that with this calendar we can not only support New Hope Cattle Dog Rescue, but also encourage people to look at this breed more closely as a prospective pet.
NHCD has some dogs that are still going through the evaluation process. You should feel free to call and inquire about them.
Bett, an adult female
CeCe, a red female adolescent Cattle Dog (her link doesn't work, but she is on the adoption page if you scroll down...
Leopold, a blue adolescent Cattle Dog. Leo is deaf.
Schnook, a red male adolescent Cattle Dog mix.
Charlie, a blue male adolescent Cattle dog, has no picture yet.
Of course, New Hope Cattle dog Rescue might not be close enough to make adoption from them feasible. Click here, for contacts of ACDs, needing homes, listed by state. Or check out Petfinder, for ACD's listed there
