We found Yukon all the way out in Kelowna, a 4 hour drive from Coquitlam. We drove out to see him when he was 4 weeks, fell in love with him, and then back out to pick him up 3 weeks later.
Puppies are soooo cute, and for a good reason! (That is what I always say about my children too, when they are mischievous ;D ) What a lot of work! Oh but it was so worth it for those puppy snuggles, puppy breath and kisses, love, my heart <3.
6 and a half months old, at the Glen Park dog park with Lil' Sprout
This is Yukon, . He is a red bicolour Australian Shepherd, with a full tail.
He fits our family so well. He's fun, playful, goofy, but not too high strung or demanding or needy. My littlest one (Trout) who is just a year and a half runs around with him and relates to him like one of his brothers :)
8 weeks old, he gets to come home!
Having Yukon has been such a blessing to our family, and to the kids. I am so happy they get to grow up together! Trout has no fear of dogs. He actually behaves as much like a dog as he does human, lol!
When we were at this dog park one time, Trout sat and had an actual conversation with a Shiba Inu who was trying to figure out who this tiny human was. They 'woo woo'd' back and forth about 4-5 times, then my Lil' Sprout got down on the ground on his tummy to allow the dog to approach him. It was quite something to behold!
"I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."
