I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

New Career?

Posted by Picasa

You may have heard from some of our ACD blogging pals that Stumpy and her friends have been modeling for a calendar to benefit New Hope Cattle Dog Rescue.

New Hope Cattle Dog Rescue is a registered Arizona non-profit 501(c)3 corporation. They are a completely volunteer run organization with no paid employees. That's our favorite kind of non-profit... no one is taking home a big paycheck and the donations go where they are needed most, to help the dogs.

We're really happy to be a part of this project with our friends Norwood, Gus, Callie and Louie (AKA Three Happy Heelers), Velcro, Charlie Daniels, Wyatt Twirp and Ruger and Neve.

Stumpy's thinking she may have a modeling career in her future. The perks would include a lot more bones, treats and cookies. She just needs a photographer with some mad skillz and a clue to take her the distance...

The calendar should be available soon so watch for updates!

Hey Stumpy: My only hope with this modeling career is that you all (especially you, and the Happy Heelers)stay as sweet as you are and don't let this go to your head!

Good luck, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Stumpy you are a beautiful model.. All the pictures are so great.. We sure can't wait to see the finished product...
We are so hoping we can raise lots of green backs for those pups..

Big Sloppy Kisses

That's great news. I'd love to see Stumpy on a calendar. I wish I had an ACD friend I could buy it for - oh well maybe I'll just buy it for myself!!

I think Stumpy could go far! Look at that face, she's a natural. I believe she is so well-grounded she wouldn't forget the little people who admired her before she hit the big time. : )

Stella, who told you Stumpy is sweet? that's supposed to be a secret! She likes everyone to think she is tuff as nails!

Heelers, we have had the opportunity to sneak peaks at your photos. You are all looking pretty darn good, too!

Sam, EVERYONE needs a heeler calendar!

Sandra, we're working hard to keep all four feet on the ground. Being OCD/ACD is a constant challenge!

DG, Thanks, I keep telling her she was born for this!

Khyra, Stumpy studies your blog, floofs and poses for modeling knowledge. She couldn't do it without you!
