Eight Pounds of Cuteness



 Here I am melting to peices, just look who stole my heart on Saturday and came home with Gary and me.. Meet Shilo a Miniature Australian Shepherd. Shilo is a Blue Merle, White and Copper adorable little boy with bright blue eyes. He is 10 weeks old and what a doll. Just a little ball of soft fluffy puppy fur. 
I know, I know I have always said no puppies on the sofa, "but" it was just for a few pictures and before I had run over to Pet-co to pick up a little bed for him.
Shilo likes his bed and is getting use to it already. Miniature Australian shepherds will grow up to 18 inches tall and weigh in around 17 to 30 pounds. It looks like Shilo might weigh around 24 pounds according to the breeder.

 Look at his sweet little nose it's shaped like a heart! Aw
 Gary has been wanting a puppy for a long time, I just couldn't agree. Our family dog Kona passed away around 4 years ago and I have not been ready to replace her. But then.......we went to see the pups on Saturday and that was all she wrote, I was done for, just one little cuddle from him under my neck and his sweet soft fur and blue eyes. Yep I done for I just melted into butter!



 Oh NO we are not spoiled..LOL LOL, just taken a nap on Gary's lap
 A little squinty eye looking up at the camera
 And a floppy ear
 Silly puppy!!!
Aw its a puppy world, all tired out from playing.

We are just proud new puppy parents. Wooing and Awing over 8 pounds of cuteness.
Gary is in L-O-V-E with this little guy, our family is too. Shilo is going to be so loved and so spoiled.


Have a sweet week everyone.

Hi there, What a cutie to be sure! I can understand why you fell hard. These guys are so smart and train so easily-I love the breed but hubby hate dog hair,which is why we have a Bichon.
Our Hunter is very spoiled! Hope you have a fun evening with him.
Hugs, Noreen

Awww...love those darling pink puppy paws! What a sweetheart! We've had two Aussies--they're so smart that our doggy classes were a blast--and kept us one step ahead of our pups! Enjoy and give Shilo a kiss for me.

Elizabeth - What a little doll! Those eyes just turn me into mush! He is so darling. Our Bella is part Australian Shepherd and part Blue Heeler. She has the slicker hair.

Congratulations and I know he will be a very happy and spoiled baby!

Oh my! How cute is he! I wonder how big he will get. I SO want a little dog but we are going to wait. A puppy is fun because it learns from you and gets its good nature around a happy home. I'm so happy for you! Give that puppy a cuddle for me! Hugs!

Monica said...

Happy Birthday dear Elizabeth! I've been thinking of you! May your your day be awesome!
Hugs,
Monica xoxo

Sandy said...

I'm in love too! What a cutie! Her lovely fur and those stunning blue eyes. I don't blame you for bringing her home. Now you have to get her a RED collar!!! Your life won't be the same - puppy kisses and lots of love and happiness.
