I wrote an article for HubPages yesterday about why, after years of considering myself a "cat person" I am now officially a "dog person."

Are you a "dog person" or a "cat person" - or both? Or neither?

Meet Maggie - our 1 year old Australian Shepherd

Our Aussie Shepherd, Maggie.

Maggie is one year old Australian Shepherd. She's a natural born herder, and loves to herd other dogs and our family members when we go on hikes. She has boundless energy and needs to be kept busy or else can get into a lot of mischief very quickly. She is very agile and very fast.
Maggie loves all kinds of adventures, and is a great companion for walking, hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, mountain biking, and playing in the snow. She discovered the joy of swimming this past summer, and has learned some retrieving skills from our Lab. Like most Aussies, she needs to have a job, and has apparently decided her new job is to fetch the ball all day long.

Meet Zoey - our 4 year old Chocolate Lab

Meet Zoey:

Our Chocolate Lab, Zoey.

Zoey is 4 years old. She's a great family dog and loves meeting new people. She thinks she's a lap dog and loves to snuggle. Like all labs, she loves food, and is not at all picky about what she eats. You leave food unattended around her at your own peril.

Zoey loves having fun outside all year long. Her favourite activities are joining our family on hikes or snowshoeing adventures and swimming in the lake.
